Sorry for the late post, I’ve been actually doing stuff all morning and haven’t been by a computer. In addition to a late post, this will probably be a short post seeing as, gulp, I actually have work to do today.
I hate you Michael Redd. I can’t believe he made that shot to beat the Cavs last night. Wally played it as well as he could have. He even made Redd travel but there was no way the Cavs were going to get that call. They didn’t get a call all game, why get one when it counts. But why didn’t they put 0.4 seconds back on the clock? That’s how much time was left when the ball went through the hoop. But it was a great shot regardless. I sat on my basement floor with the same expression and gesture as Damon Jones; in awe and with my hands on my head saying “no way.”
A couple quick thoughts;
Andy was way off his game.
Wally needs to hit those open shots in clutch time.
When did Devin Brown become a good shooter.
Damon Jones is on fire right now and there can never been too many “three’s on the tray,” (but why does he have to stand and look around at everyone after he makes a three? He just stands there for like two seconds, then takes two slow steps before jogging back on defense. We know you don’t like to play defense but at least get back. He’s like Mutombo who has to wiggle his finger after a block no matter what the situation is, and he looked like an idiot last night [both DJ and Mutombo]. But Jones hit a huge shot and he’s on a roll right now.
I like how LeBron has stopped the dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble-come-off-pick-force-a-fade-a-way-shot when it comes to game-tying or game-winning shots and has starting taking it to the hole like we have said he should do for the longest time. Just wish he didn’t leave so much time on the clock.
How does someone not pick up Redd before he is ready to shoot? There should have been someone on him from the moment LBJ scored.
Not having Z last night hurt because the Cavs had to play Wallace and Andy. The Cavs need to get healthy and then they’ll be a very deep and talented team.
So much for Graig’s prediction of not losing another game, but 26-1 with these group isn’t too bad either.
WHY IN THE WORLD DID BILLY THOMAS NOT PLAY!!!!
Big game tonight in Boston. This could be a second round playoff match up and the Cavs need a big win with this new team to let Boston (and Detroit) know they are the team to beat in the East. Key to tonight’s game; Billy Thomas playing 10 minutes (that would be about 8 three’s, making three or four of them).
