The Post Up: Celtics undefeated, Bobcats over Heat, Darko over Yao?

And the Blazers continue to laugh at the rebuilding process.

By Holly MacKenzie

This whole Marbury episode has my head spinning. I’m looking forward to seeing how it all plays out. I’m sure the other guys here at SLAM can contribute to this situation much more than I can as I am by no means a Marbury expert and the Knicks are one of the teams that I follow the least religiously. Still, someone is lying in this whole mess and Isiah’s Cheshire-cat grin is looking more and more shady by the day. With the Knicks losing Mardy Collins and Renaldo Balkman to injury in the game against the Suns last night, it is looking like its going to be hard to be a Knick for awhile.

Lakers in San Antonio last night was…..tough. There was some good: Bynum’s double-double, staying with the Spurs in the beginning, holding Duncan to 2-13 from the floor, Farmar scoring 16, but, the bad made me want to claw my eyes out. It was more Tony Parker than I needed to see. These speedy point guards just kill LA, nothing new there. And people can say what they want about SA being boring to watch, but they are really, really good. Especially when you have Bowen knocking down three after three after three in the corner. It was especially frustrating to see my boys let him get the ball in his favorite spot all….night….long..

Did anyone here catch Paul Pierce drop down to do push-ups between free throws? It must be nice to have the confidence that is rising high in Boston these days. I didn’t get to watch all of the Miami/Charlotte game but, from what I did see the Heat couldn’t buy a bucket. It also hurts when your coach says you’d be better off if he could suit up and play. The Felton to Richardson alley oop was perfection last night and I think my play of the night was seeing Wallace’s huge block on Shaq. Darko Millicic in Memphis? D’ing up Yao (even though Yao still finished with 22), and also scoring 20 points in their impressive win over the Rockets? I didn’t expect to be writing about that today. I was thrilled to see Amare come out strong in the game against the Knicks and I’m hoping his dominance can continue. He was all over the place and he makes the Suns so much better when he is out there. Finally, Portland! Who had them winning their last four games? I hope they can keep on rolling and surprise people. It’s fun watching Aldridge and Roy lead the way.

Boston 101 Indiana 86

Another day, another W for the Celtics. Although this time, Boston came out flat and went down by six points in the first quarter for their biggest deficit this season. After a hard foul by Jamaal Tinsley on Paul Pierce when the game was tied at 38 all, Pierce was fired up and went off for 13 points in the final 3:06 of the first half. Those points helped propel Boston to a 52-43 halftime lead. In the second half the Celtics came out with purpose and poise and they extended their lead to as many as 16 points in the third quarter. Indiana was not going down easy though, and they rallied back in the final minutes of the third and then into the fourth, cutting the lead to 7 with just over four minutes remaining in the game, but they were unable to get any closer for the rest of the game. While Boston shot 44 free throws (hitting 33 of them), the Pacers attempted only 26 (knocking down 20). Pierce led the way for Boston, finishing with 31 points and 11 rebounds while Garnett had 18 points and 11 boards and Ray Allen added 17 points. Danny Granger led Indiana with 24 points on 8-10 field goals while Jamaal Tinsley had 14.

Orlando 103 Seattle 76

Thanks to Orlando going scoreless for the first four minutes of the contest, Seattle was able to go up by seven points, briefly. Once Orlando got on the board however, they continued to ring up the points behind ex-sonic Rashard Lewis and his 22 points as Orlando routed the Sonics 103-76. Despite not scoring for the first four minutes of the game, Orlando still outscored Seattle 28-14 in the 1st quarter and held a 49-26 advantage at the break. Things only got worse in the second half as Seattle was outscored 36-20 in the third on the way to their 8th consecutive loss to start the season. In the game Orlando shot 46.3% as compared to Seattle shooting only 34.4%. Orlando also out-rebounded the Sonics 58-44 as they managed to overcome committing 26 turnovers in the game. Dwight Howard had another double-double for the Magic with 13 points and 12 rebounds, Hedo Turkoglu scored 17 points, Keith Bogans 16 and Trevor Ariza had a double-double with 11 points and 11 boards. Nick Collison was the leading scorer for Seattle with 15 points while rookie Jeff Green had 12 and rookie Kevin Durant had 10 on only 4-13 shooting.

Charlotte 91 Miami 76

In what was the match up of the two lowest scoring teams in the league things were ugly after the 1st quarter. With Charlotte up 17-12 after one, the teams had combined to miss 39 shots in the first period. Thankfully for their fans, Charlotte was able to break out of their slump and generate some offense on their way to destroying the Heat 91-76. The two teams each scored 23 points in the second quarter and the Heat trailed by only five points at the half, 40-35. It was in the third quarter where Miami completely unraveled and the Bobcats jumped on them, outscoring the Heat 31-12 in the period to take a commanding 71-47 lead into the fourth as Miami finished the game being out-rebounded by 11 (47-38), while also shooting only 1-7 from the three-point lead. For the game, Charlotte shot 43% while Miami managed only 38.5%, with that percentage being bolstered by the 29 points the bench players scored in the 4th quarter garbage time. Gerald Wallace had 19 points for the Bobcats, while Emeka Okafor had 13 points and 10 rebounds and Jason Richardson added 18 points. Raymond Felton finished with 9 assists and Matt Carroll had 10. For the Heat, Shaquille O’Neal was the sole bright spot, scoring 17 points on 7-14 field goals while Udonis Haslem added 10.

Memphis 105 Houston 99

The Grizzlies managed to step up their defense in the final minutes to hold on and get the win against the Rockets who were riding a three game winning streak into Memphis last night. At the end of the night, it was Darko Milicic’s defense on Yao Ming that overshadowed a 44-point performance by Tracy McGrady. With the game close the first three quarters; Memphis went on an 8-2 run to start the fourth and take an eight point lead. With Tracy McGrady on the bench for a breather, they extended their lead to 94-85. Once McGrady checked into the game again, he went to work knocking down a three and then leading a Houston rally back, with another lay-up tying the game at 97 with 2:10 remaining. The rest of the way was decided by free throws as Memphis hit eight straight from the line to maintain their lead and get the win. Pau Gasol had 26 points for the Grizzlies, including going 14-17 from the free throw line. Darko scored 20 points, Rudy Gay had 16 and Mike Miller, 17. Besides McGrady’s 44 points, Yao finished with 22 points, and Mike James had 10.

San Antonio 107 LA Lakers 92

While the Lakers boasted one of the highest-scoring offenses going into last night’s game, San Antonio boasted the best defense. In the first match up between the two this season, not only did the defense win, but it also turned on its offense, knocking down 13-27 from beyond the three-point line behind Bruce Bowen’s 6-6 three-pointers as the Spurs took down the Lakers 107-92. While the Lakers started out strong, by the second quarter the three-point shoot-out had begun and the Spurs were up 54-38. In the second half the Lakers were even with the Spurs with San Antonio outscoring them by one, 25-24 in the 3rd quarter and then LA outscoring them by two in the 4th, 30-28, but it was too late. Tony Parker and his 26 point, 9 assists performance was too much for the Lakers to overcome and the offensive spacing and execution of the Spurs took them to their 7th win of the season while dropping LA to 3-3. Besides Parker, Bowen finished with 23 points while holding Kobe Bryant to 18 points. Tim Duncan had a rough night, scoring only 5 points and shooting 2-13 from the floor, but Manu Ginobili added 17 to make up for it. For LA, Andrew Bynum continued his strong play, finishing with another double-double of 11 points and 12 rebounds and Jordan Farmar had 16. While the Lakers out-rebounded San Antonio by 10, they had 19 turnovers in the game, leading to San Antonio attempting 9 more field goals in the game.

Dallas 99 Philadelphia 84

After a slow first half from the Mavericks and Jason Terry included, Dallas came out strong in the 2nd half and Terry scored 12 points in the 3rd quarter to help fuel Dallas as they outscored Philadelphia 33-18 in the period to take control of the game again and go into the 4th up 76-68 on their way to a 99-84 victory. While Dallas started out slow offensively they were also lethargic on defense and were out-rebounded in the 1st half. This did not sit well with Coach Johnson who got on his guys at halftime. Things were back to normal in the 2nd half, with Dirk Nowitzki tying a career-high 8 assists to go along with his 21 points and 12 rebounds as Dallas came out aggressive and got Philadelphia on their heels. The Mavericks converted more free throws (19-27) than the 76er’s attempted in the game (13-18). Terry finished with 25 points in the game and Josh Howard had 18 points. Samuel Dalembert had 18 points for Philadelphia while Willie Green had 16 and Andre Iguodala had 15 points, 12 boards and 8 assists as Philly dropped to 2-5 on the season.

Portland 102 Detroit 94

After dropping their first three games of the season the Portland Trailblazers have now won their past four games including their latest contest against the Detroit Pistons last night. LaMarcus Aldridge and Brandon Roy led the way for the young team who continues to surprise. The two teams traded leads in the first half with Detroit taking the 53-50 lead at the break and the lead changes continued in the third quarter with Flip Murray knocking down a three at the end of the quarter to tie the game at 74 going into the 4th. The Blazers largest lead in the quarter was seven points but Detroit cut it down to three, 94-91 with 2:11 remaining. From there, Jarrett Jack had a lay up and the Blazers were strong at the line, finishing 5-6 in the final 2 minutes of the game. Aldridge had a game high 22 points to go along with 10 rebounds while Brandon Roy and Jarrett Jack each had 20. Travis Outlaw added 13 for Portland who shot 54.8% for the game. Tayshaun Prince had 20 points for Detroit, while Chauncey Billups added 19. Rasheed Wallace had 15 points and Richard Hamilton added 14.

Phoenix 113 New York 102

Amid the turmoil surrounding the New York Knicks who were playing without their point guard Stephon Marbury, they managed to give a good effort against the Suns in Phoenix, although they came up short in the end, 113-102. While the Suns led by as many as 21 points in the final quarter, the Knicks gave a good fight without three of their regulars, Marbury included. After being outscored 34-29 in the 1st quarter, the Knicks lost each of the three remaining quarters as well as they could not defend the Suns who finished the game shooting 56.2% from the floor. One of the reasons why the Knicks were able to cut the lead in the 4th was the 18 turnovers committed by the Suns in the game. Grant Hill had a big game for Phoenix as he shot 7-8 from the floor and finished with 21 points. Most importantly for the Suns was the big game from Amare Stoudemire who continues to get back into game shape as he returns from sitting out due to a sore knee. Stoudemire finished with 26 points, 12 boards and 4 blocks, including hitting 10-14 free throws. Shawn Marion and Leandro Barbosa each scored 23 points for the Suns while Nash finished with 12 assists. Barbosa started for Raja Bell who is still sidelined with an ankle injury. Jamal Crawford was the leading scorer for New York with 21, while Fred Jones had 19 and Nate Robinson added 18. Eddy Curry had 17 points and 8 rebounds for the Knicks who were without Zach Randolph (death in family) and Quentin Richardson (hyperextended elbow) in addition to Marbury. The Knicks also lost Mardy Collins with a sprained right foot, then later in the game lost Renaldo Balkman to a sprained ankle in the final quarter.

    This is why it’s good to have someone writing these that is unaffected by the East Coast bias. The front page of the NYPost has Steph on a milk carton. The back page of the Daily News is hinting that he’s about to snitch on Isiah.

  • http://slamonline.com Sam Rubenstein

    And oh by the way, with all we know about Isiah, what could Steph possibly have on him as far as dirt we don’t know?
    Be afraid. Be very afraid. I wouldn’t be surprised if Steph has the location of some bodies Isiah sloppily buried. Okay, other teams are in the NBA, sorry for all that.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Days like today are when I most miss being in New York. And don’t feel bad, Holly. Close as they are now, even God can’t figure Steph out.
    Shane Battier looks funny in that picture. Nice dunk, though.

  • Keith

    New York needs to employ Charles Oakley to punch anyone who causes problems. And by ‘New York’, I mean the city of.

  • Captain America

    Great recap again. The Knicks thingy is getting to be “days of our lives”. They did find Steph in his “pick up” truck in front of a strip club with another intern. I don’t like Isiah, never did. In conclusion, West beats East teams again (yawn).

  • Keith

    Holly, living in England I get to watch one game a week and last night it was the Lakers-Spurs match up. Man, I feel for you being a Laker girl. Kobe didn’t appear to be trying to hard to score on the Spurs even when they were down 15-18 in the third. He seemed content to make some nice defensive plays but not over stretch himself on offensive. Bowen was moving under the screen on Kobe every time which left him wide open but he rarely (if at all) exploited it.

  • Captain America

    Even the Pacers gave C’s a battle.

  • http://www.tasa201.wordpress.com Tariq

    I’ve never been a fan of a specific NBA team. I tend to root for certain players (KG, Iverson) or certain incarnations of teams (last year’s playoff Warriors). That being said, I’m thrilled that the Celtics are off to a good start. ESPN.com, however, are again displaying a supreme lack of intelligence. They’ve already starting to compare them to the 95 Bulls. This “makes sense”, because the Celtics are “on pace to finish 82-0″. I’m on pace to murder The Sports Guy.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    PP was doing pushups between free throws? Whoa. Sick.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Actually, I have the Celtics going 98-0. And the Steph story is FAN-TASTIC. The supposed quotes he made on the plane out to Phoenix are awesome in their nuttiness.

  • Cloud S.Y Louis

    hey holly, did you realize that Bynum goes for a double+ because of he’s taking the trash time at d’ fourth quarter??? and it was ronny turiaf and kwame held timmy D to 5 ppg 5rpg? am my wrong….

  • TADOne

    Great recap, Holly. Miami and NY have some serious issues early in the season. Aldridge and Roy in Portland are playing at a very high level. And the C’s? Wow….

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Oh, and I think Riley is about to step down, say in about 3 weeks. Just a hunch. He is so beaten looking on the sidelines it pathetic. Maybe he needs to read the comments here. It would brighten his day. Pat, don’t shrivel up until D-Wade is back on the court. If the team still sucks then, drown yourself in Barbersol.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    -Keith, it was rough watching the Lakers have the same deficiencies that they have had year in and year out. Parker killed us just as Paul did and just as Nash usually will. Bowen going 6-6 just made me angry!

    -Ryan: I can just hear “only God can judge me” running through Steph’s head. It’s probably Isiah’s mantra too. I used to love Isiah (probably magnified by watching hoop dreams every chance I got), now he just creeps me out. This whole situation in NY is just a damn mess.

    -Tariq: I am the exact same way, except for the Lakers and Suns. Actually, I just love the game so much that there are very few players that I don’t like. I was so loving the Warriors in the play offs last year. How could you not love a story like that?!

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    See, look at what TADOne wrote. He says the Heat have issues. Yes, they do, because their best player hasn’t seen a minute of action yet. That would apply to every other team too, see Riles, it’s a pattern, not just an isolated incident.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Ryan’s only misgiving is he didn’t capitalize GOD. Blasphemous, Jones.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    And Holly, you’re about to get an invitaion to the E-muda Triangle with your Shaq block by Wallace comment. Can’t a dying dog live in peace without proding jabs? That’s like the nerdy kid in school getting laughed at by a pretty girl if he asked her out and she say’s “No Way!!” Guy’s like Tariq are use to hearing that.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    I know Kwame has had the heel injury, but the Lakers were outscored by 13 points in Kwame’s first stint. And Turiaf did a good job (minus his 6 turnovers), but Kwame only had 14 minutes in the game, so no I don’t think he deserves most of the credit for Duncan’s off night. I am just happy with Bynum’s progress in limited minutes. He’s ranked 2nd in rebounds per minute. I know its only early in the season, but that stat makes me happy. And Bynum only had 4 of his rebounds and 4 of his points in the 4th quarter, so yeah, he impressed me.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    ahaha sorry Eboy, it was a great block! I was happy to hear Haslem was named captain. He deserves it. Although, I wouldn’t want the task of trying to brighten spirits until Wade comes back.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Holly ventured into Bodie territory with her stat knowledge. I miss that big-tit*ied bastard.

  • http://mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    capitalizing GOD makes it sound like a 15 year-old valley girl says it to express irritation. Which sounds more blasphemous to me than God. Which looks much better on screen

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Haslem was Captain Clank last night. When he shoots the ball like that, he is really useless for more than a few minutes at a time.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    You all only see one side of me with these recaps, Eboy.I try to keep the stats to a minimum because I know some people want only the basics! I miss bodie too. I’d like to see what he is thinking about the game.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Hisham, pay closer attention. Those were Steph’s idea’s of granduer that brought about the GOD capitalization.

  • RedRum

    I read one line that says it all why the Mavs did not win, and why Dirk’s leadership is questioned: Dirk, 8 assists, career-high… when the player your offence is based on and gets the more touches, after 10 years in the league has a career-high 8 assists, then you know something is REALLU wrong…

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    I didn’t think he looked as bad as Davis. I didn’t see the whole game, so feel free to fill in the gaps for me. I am really glad that Felton is feeling fine and the knee thing last week was just a scare.

  • Keith

    Oh man, don’t get me started on Kwame. Every move in the post looked horrible. He looks uninterested and out of shape (maybe a little harsh). The Lakers need to just buy him out. Screw losing money on him. He’s killing ‘em. He will give them 2 decent games (18 and 12) out of every 41 games he plays in. And I’m angered more by the fact he was number 1 pick. As Barkley says “Terubl…just terbul”.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    I hate stat’s, especially in basketball. It can show a guy that can change the course of a game with great “basketball” plays as being horrible because he didn’t fill up a statsheet. And on the flip side, guys can score 48 points and look like a future legend, than look at the boxscore and see he shot 11-38 with 20+ free throws. Misleading.

  • http://mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    Oh, sorry i missed that one. I was flipping through the little booklet from Common’s last album, in which he also refers to God as GOD. Which made me think that it was commonplace to use ALL CAPS in the US when namedropping higher beings

  • http://mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    never mind that

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Holly, I don’t want to bore everyone else (except BETCATS) with the horrors of the Heat. Riley’s rotation pattern is sh*tty for one. For two, Ricky doesn’t take the ball to the basket enough. Shaq is, according to his camp, 15 games away from being up to speed. D-Wade is still showing us the fall collecton of the Benchman collection. And between Wright, Quinn and Smush, I am REALLY confident I can get two other guys from these boards that can be more productive than those three.

  • http://mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    can’t wait to go home in 2 hours to watch the highlights, Holly. Your recap made me very curious about the daily top 10 on NBA.com

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    according to this study conducted by professors at BYU recently, Luke Walton helps his team out more than any other player in the NBA due to his assist/turnover ratio (among other things) for his position. There is a lot that the stats don’t show. I don’t live and die by the stats, that is for damn sure, but certain stats are very indicative of why/when a game was lost. I am a huge fan of +/-’s more than anything else.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    Eboy, thats what kills me about media.. Take for example the local newspaper that covered my school team. Not the school paper that I took care of, but the local one. They would praise our leading scorer for netting 25 points, and completely ignore the fact that it took him 25 shots to get it. Stuff like that makes me CRAZY.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Agreed on the +/-’s, Holly.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    What is the issue with Wade’s knee? I read he won’t be ready for Seattle either.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    Michael did that for a good majority of his career and Kobe is the present day culprit of that. Their greatness would get them 25 free throws but their poor shooting in a game would leave you looking at the box saying “damn, he missed 25 shots”.

  • http://www.tasa201.wordpress.com Tariq

    Eboy,

    Touche, f*cker.

  • Keith

    Luke started being a bit erratic last night at times..dribbling through the legs, taking turn around off balance jumpers. Still, he gave them good energy.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    Hisham, there were some good plays. Eboy, skip this next sentence. The Felton-Richardson alley oop was spectacular! I don’t know if they will show Pierce dropping down for the push ups but it was just crazy that the C’s are that confident.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    I’ve heard Friday at Boston (what better place than a national TV game) or next week at home vs. the Hawks (sorry Lang). If he waits till the Hawks game, they may be 1-10.

  • http://whitehoteboysworld.blogspot.com white hot eboy

    I liked the oop, Holly. And the Celtics overconfidence will bite themn in the ass against Detroit, the Spurs and maybe even the Jazz. I’m already getting a poor taste in my mouth for that silly bulls*it.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    Yeah, I love seeing good teams play, I love seeing Garnett get his, but don’t be cocky so early in the season. Actually, don’t be cocky like that at all. How many rings do they have between the three of them? you know?!?

  • http://mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    So when he gets back, the Heat will finally be able to drop the asterisks from their losses, and just start losing at full strength!

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    I think I spelled Millicic wrong. For some reason, this post took me longer to write than my senior research paper last year. Okay, not quite that long, but it took foreverrr. I was flipping back and forth through the games and writing them as I was watching but man, I had to read and re-read the stat sheets about a thousand times because I couldn’t retain any information last night. I’ve had all-nighters where my brain starts to get all wonky, but this was crazy. I hope I get my “focus” back tonight!

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    it also might have something to do from getting dizzying reading all of the 500+ comments last night and this morning!!

    Nearoin it was a nice change writing about Darko for something positive rather than saying he wants to eat babies or whatever the hell he said in his rant this summer.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    and i spelled that name wrong too, sorry Neaorin!

    68 comments? How the hell am I supposed to keep up anymore? I’ve never been so discouraged to be a Knick fan in my life.I’m just so disillusioned right now. At least Stoudamire was beasting last night and Steve Nash Didn’t have to score 30 points for them to win.Boston probably is getting overconfident. I heard someone say it’s PP’s team because they go to him when they need a bucket , but I really think KG is the leader of the bunch.I don’t think he will let them get too overconfident before he starts cursing people out.
