Line Of The Night:
Danny Granger — 27 points, 9 boards, 5 assists, 5 steals
Granger, again? Aw yeah, again and again. Dude is nasty. Two straight L.O.N.nies nasty. Unfortunately, at 8-16, looks like he and his Pacers are at least one year away from any sort of primetime love, but the true heads know. And the Wiz fa sho know, after last night.
Near Oscar Robertson Of The Night:
Rajon Rondo — 25 points, 9 boards, 8 assists, 3 steals
Just let C-Webb tell you. Double R is getting it done, he’s getting it in, he’s getting in his bag, and he’s going in, too. Can he grab an Eastern Conference All-Star guard spot? D-Wade, A.I., Joe Johnson? Devin Harris? Jose Calderon? Dare we say… Derrick Rose? If Peezy is out for any time with this knee injury does he step it up and end all debate? Will he get a quadruple-double this year, with a line that includes 10 behind-the-back pass fakes in one game?
Contraction Club Of The Night:
Charlotte Bobcats — 79 points vs. the ATLiens
Boris Diaw showcased his all-around game in this one, dropping 25 on his former team. The Cats have no reliable second option on offense, though, which caught up with them in the forth quarter when they could only manage 11 points. Maybe an improved D, but definitely a generally horrid offense.
Eat Your Breakfast Of The Night:
Not only did rook Ryan Anderson drop a career-high 21 points to lead his Nets to a road win in the T-Dot last night, he also enjoyed an extra serving of the most important meal of the day. After losing his man, who was shading towards Chris Bosh at the elbow extended, Joey Graham received a pass in the corner, went baseline, then BOOM! EAT YOUR BREAKFAST, RYAN! Bet you never had a Canadian bacon, graham crackers sandwich, homey!
What is in Paul Millsap’s Wheaties bowl, lately?… J.R. Smith tied the Mavs, BY HIMSELF, in the the forth quarter last night, 17-17. The Garbageman strikes again… Yeah, that’s 15 in a row for Boston. That’s a ratings bonanza if they can hold onto that until Christmas Day…
