L.O.N. — Rajon Rondo as B.I.G.
Does that make Doc Puffy?
Line Of The Night AKA Near Larry Bird Of The Night AKA That Classic Ish Of The Night:
Rajon Rondo — 28 points, 11 assists, 8 boards, 2 steals
If this series is on some classic, Black-Moon-Who-Got-Da-Props/Wu-C.R.E.A.M./Gang Starr-Premo-Take-It-Personal type ish, then Rondo is Biggie, coming out of that environment to take the crown. But did Biggie ever roller skate? In suspenders?
Contraction Club Of The Night:
Houston Rockets — 77 points vs. Portland
Shane Battier — 4 points, 4 boards, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block
One of the various Playoff color men quoted Battier as saying, “If I don’t score, we won’t win”. Whoomp. There it is. Or even whoot.
Illadelph Sixers — 78 points vs. Orlando
Beast Of The Night:
Dwight Howard — 24 points, 24 boards, 2 blocks, 1 assist, 1 steal
In a pivotal Game 5, Howard and the Magic contract the Sixers and seem to take control of the series… except, Howard will most likely be suspended for that lilac get-up (not the elbow to Samuel Dalembert’s head, as widely reported) and their second-best player in the series — Courtney Lee — could miss Game 6 with his own head ailment. 7 For All Mankind?
Near Beast Of The Night:
Kendrick Perkins — 19 boards, 16 points, 7 blocks, 2 assists, 1 steal
Wow. Kendrick creeping on a triple-double come up. We pray for a K.G. miracle return, because, with him, the Ceatles starting lineup is so ridiculously hard body. Sorry, Big Baby, once you and your BFF Tyrus Thomas have completed your “who can miss the most jumpshots” contest, get back to us.
I Can’t Feel My Face Of The Night:
After Brad Meezy took that grill shot, Weezy and Juelz’s managers quickly contacted John Paxson to see if they could arrange a collabo. But seriously, if he felt as messed up as he looked, shouldn’t they have let someone else shoot free throws? If you lose the game, Vinny, then it does not matter if Miller is available for a 2nd OT. Get somebody in there that can see straight.
Hey, Vinny, one other thing while we have you — maybe you should double Paul Pierce? Or at least have Salmons stand directly to his right so he cannot shoot THE SAME SHOT 18,922 times in a row!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Frustration… Pop is probably regretting not unleashing George Hill a little earlier in this series. He did not suffer from whatever ailed Roger Mason and Matt Bonner… Also, does R.C. Buford throw up in his mouth every time he sees a Luis Scola fist pump?… It is extremely hard for us to say this, but. Um. Well. Watch… out… for… the.. [gulp]… Mavs?!?!?!?… But, FREE GERALD GREEN!!!!
