Worthy of Your Attention

by Marcel Mutoni

It’s a night of reunions…

Clippers @ Sixers
: Elton Brand says he feels no extra motivation going up against his former team, but we all know that’s a bold-face lie. He’d have to be a robot not to be pumped up for tonight’s matchup.

“I don’t care to see them,” Brand said.”I can’t worry about individual stuff,” Brand said. “It’s just a competition. It’s just a game we need to win.”

Sure. Whatever you say, dude.

Over on the Clippers’ side, Mike Dunleavy is still trying to figure out what he did exactly to deserve the cold shoulder from E.B.

“If we don’t speak, it won’t be because I don’t want to speak to him,” Dunleavy said. “I still respect him, he was a great player for us.”

Give the man a hug, Elton. He could use one.

Celtics @ Timberwolves:KG will finally get a chance to play against his old team – when the Celtics and Wolves met up last year following the big trade, Garnett was injured.

Factor in the struggling economy and the team’s dismal play, there’s been very little excitement in Minnesota’s gym this season, but that figures to chance tonight.

The Celtics should, of course, have no problem with the T-Wolves. The only reason to tune in, really, is for the standing ovation.

    Slow down, Cub. Slow down.

    I totally agree with Cub. Denver gets there by default though. The West has fallen off.

  • matt the jazz fan

    The West has simply been hit by a major injury bug, B.

    Im in there like swimwear. We missed you KG.

  • ugly_fish

    Does anyone else notice that there are 3 games in which the former face of the franchises are playing against their old teams? Referring to Brand, KG and VC.

    What about “wince” carter returning to Toronto for the 78th(approx.) time?

  • ciolkstar

    Cub is not just drinking, but bathing in the Kool Aid.

    Vince Carter. I love it. Let the haters hate and crush the Raptors fans out!

    that was heartbreaking. but as a fan….that was a hell of a game

    Even a sloppy C’s were able to hold the Twolves to 30% shooting most of the night. Celts bench seems like it’s starting to come together.

    Meanwhile, Foye & Telfair combined for something like 4 assists and 6 turnovers. The only basket I saw Foye make was a dunk. McHale chose Randy over Brandon Roy? Genius.
