Post Up: Boston On Track

At the expense of those Raptors.

by Holly MacKenzie

Happy Monday morning, Slammers.

Highlight of my weekend? Seeing Joey Graham and Brian Scalabrine get into it in the Raps/Celtics game yesterday. Nothing happened, just two guys getting heated, but still it was fantastic to hear the entire ACC cheering “Joey! Joey!”

Unfortunately for that crowd, the Raptors lost, putting an end to the C’s four-game losing skid.

Hope you guys got to watch the Indiana/Golden State game. Granger is fantastic. Stephen Jax in that pink shirt on the bench was fantastic as well.

The Clippers fell apart in the fourth quarter against the Suns last night. Predictable, but man, they are banged up right now. No Baron, Randolph, Hart and Taylor.

Definitely the best news of the past few days is the Grizzlies re-signing Darius Miles. I love the Blazers, but that email was a stupid move on their management’s part. I’m pulling for Miles because, as always, I live for the underdog.

After having the Grizz here the night before they re-signed him and hearing Mayo say what a great teammate he was, then hearing Doc talk about him yesterday and again, echo what Mayo said, that he was a great player for him, I want to see him fulfill his dream of playing in this league again.

Dwyane and Kobe was fun last night. As a Lakers fan, the best part was such a great team effort, with Derek in double figures for assists and Bynum and Pau gritting it out.

I do think that Cook got robbed on that final 3-point attempt, though.

Speaking of threes, Ray freaking Allen. 8-10 from the beyond the arc yesterday and he started out Fine, do what you want, Dwight.the game 6-6. He was amazing on his way to 36 points. Breathtaking, that shot of his.

Be sure to check out my game notes from that game over at my Court Surfing blog. I explain how, for a brief moment in time, I was the middle of an NBA champion sandwich. Really.

Okay, so there were a few games I didn’t catch, one being the Magic and Spurs. Magic took down the Spurs, thanks to 24 and 14 from Dwight, 22 from Jameer and 21 from Hedo while Parker led the Spurs with 31.

The Kings defeated the Mavs 102-95 thanks to six players reaching double figures while the Mavs had only two, behind Jason Terry’s 33. Kevin Martin scored 21 points and Francisco Garcia added 17.

I really feel like I had a few other things to talk about this morning, but I can’t seem to get my head around them. Goodness, I put in work this weekend, with two game days, then a 16 hour double-shift on Saturday, plus a whole wack of writing. I’m probably in too deep, but I’m overdosing on the NBA, how can I complain?!

Anyone not in love with Granger yet, you will be. Trust me.

Boston 94 Toronto 88

At the end of the first quarter, Ray Allen had 15 points and the Raptors had 20. Allen’s 15 came on 5-5 shooting from behind the arc and it was just that sort of night for him as he finished with a game-high 36 points on just 14 attempts from the floor, connecting on 8-10 three-pointers. While the Celtics raced out to an early lead and led by as many as 20, the Raptors used a strong fourth quarter that saw them outscore the Celtics 33-19, to make a game of it before losing 94-88 as the Celtics put a stop to their four-game winning streak. Rajon Rondo scored 14 points and had 11 assists for the C’s as Paul Pierce scored 11 and Kevin Garnett added 10. Andrea Bargnani led the way for the Raptors with his 17 points and 9 rebounds as Jamario Moon and Chris Bosh each scored 15 points in the loss.

Phoenix 109 LA Clippers 103

While this one was close in the first half, a sloppy finish defensively once again did the Clippers in. After arguing for what he thought were no-calls on his rookie Eric Gordon, Coach Dunleavy was ejected in the third quarter and in the second half of the fourth quarter, the Clippers fell apart. Just as Phoenix found their rhythm the Clippers lost theirs, giving up a 14-5 run from the Suns to close out the game and grab the victory. Amare Stoudemire scored 26 points to lead the Suns while Shaquille O’Neal had 15 points and 10 rebounds, Grant Hill and Jason Richardson each scored 21 points and Nash finished with 14 points and 12 assists. Al Thornton scored 23 for the shorthanded Clips who also had 18 points and 18 rebounds from Marcus Camby.

Golden State 120 Indiana 117

This was a wild one. It was in Oracle Arena as well, so that just intensified it. With Danny Granger dropping in 42 points (and becoming my newest favorite, seriously, I can’t help myself!), he was unable to take the final shot for the Pacers but set up a wide-open Travis Diener for a three-pointer that wasn’t close and the Warriors hung on for the 120-117 victory. The fourth quarter was a battle the entire way through as Granger came up huge for his team at every turn until Jamal Crawford drained a huge three with 11.6 seconds remaining to give the Warriors a two-point lead. Another made free throw set up the Pacers to need a three, but they fell just short. In addition to Granger’s 42, TJ Ford scored 15 points off of the bench and Jarrett Jack added 12. Crawford finished with 32 points while Kelenna Azubuike added 21 points and Marco Belinelli scored 17.

LA Lakers 108 Miami 105

In a head-to-head match up between Kobe Bryant and the NBA’s leading scorer, Dwyane Wade, Dwyane’s points couldn’t match Kobe’s teammates as Andrew Bynum gave a scoring punch while Pau Gasol grabbed the boards and the Lakers escaped with a 108-105 victory. With the teams trading baskets in the fourth, it was Bynum who gave the Lakers the lead with 18 seconds on the clock as he tipped in a miss from Kobe. Daequan Cook made a three to cut the Lakers lead to only one with 4.2 seconds remaining, but Kobe made two free throws to extend the lead back to three and Cook missed on a three-point attempt at the buzzer. Bynum finished with 24 points while Gasol had 14 points and 18 rebounds and Kobe had 19 points. Derek Fisher scored 13 points to go with 11 assists. Wade finished with 27 points and 9 assists and Michael Beasley scored 23 off of the bench.

    Granger has a seriously smooth game

  • Orlando Green

    What the F is with everyone mag or online beat including NBA.com saying that a team is back on track when the team gets one win…its stupid…

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    The Celtics got so lucky. We all know they suck.

  • http://www.hoopmixtape.com Simon S.Y Lawy

    lets get GRANGER into ASG…

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    Do the Hawks still move up in the Dirty 30 with three straight losses?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    If TAD wasn’t being sarcastic, I would have suggested changing the team he referenced to the Matadors.

  • http://www.hoopmixtape.com Simon S.Y Lawy

    yeah, Celtics sucks, they’re busted after 12/25 with my Lakers…

    After the game we played on Friday night, eBoy, we probably deserve to fall 10 spots.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    I guess Al’s injury doesn’t help either, Myung.

  • http://www.shermradio.com Sherm

    The Celtics will be back on track when Rajon Rondo learns how to shoot

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    In that case, the C’s may never even find the track.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Myung wasn’t it like 40 at home and 30 on the road? Seriously, I’ve got JJ on my fantasy team and he’s been battling for a while now-him playing poorly(statwise) co-incides with Hawks losses.
    Co-incidence? Me think not.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Just throwing it out into cyberspace but ‘Rize’ is one of the all-time great documentaries.

  • Herfdawg

    I wish He Got Game was a documentary. Ray Ray was solid in that one

  • Julius J. Hornswaggle IV

    That injury to Marco Belinelli looked bad. Unfortunately, he was really doing well too.

  • Myung

    Al’s injury is coming at a bad time (3 straight losses with a West Coast road trip next), but I didn’t buy into the hype that we were one of the top teams in the League. I think we’re much BETTER than years past because I think we can win almost any game we play this season(well, except Friday, when we didn’t even bother to show up), but we are definitely a 2nd tier kind of team. I thought we’d win 45 games total, and I still think that sounds about right. I DO enjoy that they’re proving all the naysayers wrong (read most of the mainstream sites and magazines and where they predicted the Hawks to finish this year), and this has definitely been the most enjoyable season I’ve experienced in over a decade. Hopefully we’ll pull out some close wins during our road trip.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    One of the all time great basketball movies herfdawg :)

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    I like to tell myself those same things about the Heat, Myung, except I’m thinking the Heat will be on fumes trying to get 40 wins by the end of the season.

  • Myung

    You guys got a ring in 2006. We’ve had a 7 game series loss to the Celtics. Our expectations are considerably different, I’m sure. =)

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Josh Smith doesn’t seem to be playing with much energy these days. Is he hurt or is he just struggling?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    Not really Myung…..the Heat have been degenerates since 06…..so any glimmer of hope is welcome for these guys.

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    Meanwhile, the Bulls ceased to be an actual NBA team this weekend, which was nice. I’m considering my options.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    We have plenty of room on the bandwagon, Russ. However, I know your answer before I finish typing.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    Poor Russ. Is there any move that they can make to help them……besides killing John Paxson and Vinny….or should they just get another lottery pick and look to next year with Rose and another sold pick?

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    TAD- If you’ve read the Al Horford injury page, the Hawks are considering playing Josh at centre for the WC swing. Should be fun.

    Eboy-The Heat would have been lucky to stay within 20 of the Lakers this time last year.

    Russ-Spose loosing to OKC at home will do that to you…

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    You can’t move from a terrible franchise to a playoff team. I think that breaks a rule. And you especially can’t move from a terrible franchise to team in the same division who happened to be that team’s bitterest rival. I figure I can just become a Knick fan and tell people I rooted for them my whole life. I grew up on Long Island, it could work.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Josh at center?! Please disregard the praise I gave Woodson last week. Thanks.

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    Although I suppose I should really adopt a Western Conference team. Had Baron stayed, the Warriors would have been a logical choice. They still might be. At least they’re interesting.

  • Herfdawg

    Go for it Russ. The Knicks will be better in the future.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    You can always put your fandom up for bid at Craiglist or Ebay. That’s always a good time.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    I say you just wait it out for the Brooklyn Nets and be a Witness in waiting.

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    As for the Bulls, I officially give up. I have no idea what they should do. Deng is terrible. Ben Gordon is leaving (and even if he wasn’t, he’s deluded about his role). They’ve made no good trades in the past, what, eight years? And their record in the draft is spectacularly awful. Tyrus Thomas and Joakim Noah are athletes, not basketball players. Aaron Gray is a basketball player, but he’s emphatically not an athlete. My only hope is that Derrick Rose and Andres Nocioni get out before they get ruined, too. It’s a cursed franchise. Fold it.

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    F*ck the Nets and f*ck the LeBrondwagon that the entire media has become. I would rather get run over by that train than get on it. The announcing during Celts/Cavs made me embarassed to even be remotely connected with the NBA.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    Wow….that’s just bad, Russ. Damn. Although Aaron Gray would have fit in with the 96 Bulls.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    The Deng fall off confuses me most.

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    And by “f*ck the Nets” I mean “f*ck the BROOKLYN Nets.” I actually like the current NJ incarnation, Vince and all. Don’t kill me, Suss!

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    Sorry about the misplaced rant. Appears that I have a column to write.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    LMAO at Russ’s early Monday morning truth rants!

  • The Last Kings Fan

    Welcome back Pete Carill!

    That is all

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    I’ll be awaiting that piece. In other news, the Clips have lost 12 straight. Welcome home, Baron.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Yes well, you could go for the Rockets and have your heart broken time and time again like me. Or you couldn’t. Either way is fine.
    I suppose the underachieving part works for both franchises….but the bulls made it to the 2nd round once….hmmm.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    Well there was always the 90′s……for both franchises.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Just so everyone knows…Beasley’s 23 off the bench, um, 17 in the 4th. Where was he the rest of the game Eboy?
    Also, it looked weird to see ‘Ebay’ on slam…just didn’t look right since I was expecting an O.
    Anyhows haaaave a good one everybody. Peace!

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    Foul trouble, Hursty, and poor rotations by Spoelstra during the third quarter. I’ve been trying to avoid talking about the game this morning…..you know, ’cause the greatest team ever assembled just completely dominated from beginning to end and Kobe just thouroughly dominated Wade throughout so why talk about it.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    The best option the Heat had at the end to shoot was Cook? Or is it that Wade couldn’t get open?

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Good point. Laters everyone :)
    Oh, and since nobody has mentioned it- Thanks Holly!! :) :)

  • http://lastknickstanding.blogspot.com Bryan

    I can’t say I’m sad to see the bulls suck. But I wouldn’t wish Joakim Noah on any basketball team.

  • mike

    I don’t hear any haters now. The Celtics are back! Ain’t nothing you can say about boston. If were not ranked #1, I will lose all faith in slam. The celtics got their swagger back and everyone is afraid of us now.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    All from beating the Raptors?

  • BOSTONBALLER

    As far as the Rondo can’t shoot laughter: Remember Dennis Johnson? NO, I’m not compairing him to DJ as far as what DJ accomplished but I’m saying that DJ hit shots when they were NEEDED and I believe Rondo will do that. He has one of the purest shooters in the history of the L to learn from AND D Barros so he SHOULD improve his shot…SHOULD. lol

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    TAD, there was only 4 seconds left….they had to inbound full court….they had no timeouts….Cook was hot…..Wade brought the ball up (since he’s the only one quick enough on the roster to make that play in less that 4 seconds), got it too him and there was a “questionable” no call on the shot. So yes, that was the best option.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    Bryan, I don’t worry about Noah, Hughes, the insufferable T2, Aaron Grey…I don’t worry about any of that mess when it comes to the Bulls. They finally have a great franchise player to build around. The rest will work itself out over time.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Oh ok,I didn’t realize that had to go the length of the court. I’m surprised they got off a decent shot then.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Ryne, you need to talk Russ off the ledge.

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    Poor Bulls fans. They’ve got a lot of pieces but they’re all to diffrent puzzles. They need to pretty much trade away every one except Nocioni and Rose or they’re gonna end up being stuck in the Eastern Conference possible 8th seed race for the next decade.

    Seriously?

    Has anyone else noticed Shaq is 25 of his last 30 at the line and shooting almost 63 percent this year?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Yeah, I just saw this morning Shaq has hit his last 12 FT’s. This has to be some sort of record for him, no?

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    The Lakers/Heat game was a lot of fun to watch last night since Kobe and Dwanye ended up guarding each other a lot. Reminded me of the good ol’ days when the best players on each team actually defended each other. The Heat are freaking tough for a team with no real inside presence. It’s amazing what happens when the Lakers get the ball to Andrew in the post. Anyway, if the Heat do get Betrayal Skull Dude and a couple of vet role players next season they’re gonna be a tough out in the East.

  • http://hoops4life.com overtime

    Great Spurs D in that pic

  • ENDS

    are we not ready to start talking about Orlando as a Top team in the L?

    And to the Dwight Allstar haters having the most votes doesn’t make you the most popular it just means everyone voted for you. who the hell did ya’ll vote for at Center in the East?
    Haters. Plus I think D12 with his goofy infectious smile is at least top 5 most liked guys by the fans in the league…jerks

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Wow, ENDS is upset. I’m quite sure no one said Orlando sucks, but they still have to beat Cleveland or Boston in the East. No easy feat.

  • Myung

    Are there really a lot of Dwight Allstar haters?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Apparently.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    Watched Heat-Lakers yesterday. 2 observations :
    1) Beasley scores easy, very very easy. He’s a natural. 30 ppg is not out of the question once he gets eseablished in this league. His position (SF or PF) will depend on who he can guard. Right now he looks a bit short to guard the post and a bit slow footed to guard the perimeter. On one play, he got beat by Pau Gasol down the court ater a make when Pau started from under the basket and B-Easy were at the 3 line. Lack of effort and/or awareness. That can prolly be fixed easily tho. I’m just not sure about his motor. Does he have the discipline and the hunger to improve his weaknesses or is he satisfied with refining his strenghts only?
    2) Bynum has excellent footwork and patience (!) on the block. That is VERY rare amongst young bigs. He’s not in a hurry, his moves are clean, he gives the defender enough time to see and bite on the fake. I was very impressed. His defense wasn’t as good as I thought tho. Was that just a flash? Can some Laker aficionado comment on this?

  • Keith

    I genuinely believe that a now MJ, Pip and Rodman would be more successful on the court than the current Bulls. They still wouldn’t be in the Eastern playoff race though.
    They’d need Wennington and Buchler for that.

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

    Just catching up from the weekend… were there any notable games on Friday night?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Well Jones, your pick of C’s over Cavs didn’t pan out. Glad I didn’t call my bookie.

  • http://lastknickstanding.blogspot.com Bryan

    Anyone who thinks the celtics got their “swag” back because they beat the raps by 6 while Ray Allen was absolutley lights out needs their brain examined. I’ll go so far to say that their “swag” is what got them in this slump in the first place. All the trash talking and bully antics are making teams step up the intensity even more to make sure they don’t get embarrassed by those pieces of sh*t and it carries over into victories. F*ck the Celtics. Plus they’ve blown out a bunch of cupcakes, the Lakers and Cavs both beat them and their the most legit threats to the championship so maybe they should dial down the antics cause its not going to win them the title this year, playing smart ball will. Lets see coach of the year doc rivers get that drilled in their brains.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    Jones, Friday feels like it was ages ago. Nice game from your boy, of course. I still don’t get how they’ve got this record. I definitely wasn’t expecting it.

  • http://slamonline.com Holly MacKenzie

    Bryan, it was more of a “they stopped the skid’, title. Of course they are not suddenly unbeatable again. Of course they’ve got issues to work out on the floor (as evidenced by their fourth quarter meltdown). Just saying, they stopped the losing skid last night and they’ve got a good chance at doing it again tonight as they face Toronto at home. I’m pretty sure Calderon isn’t making the trip either.

  • http://lastknickstanding.blogspot.com Bryan

    Theyre * f*ck.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Holly, i’m quite sure Shia was referring to Mike’s 10:19 comment, not your commentary.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Hey Holly, if the Raps continue to struggle, what do you think the chances are that Bosh bolts in 2010?

  • riggs

    hey bryan take the sand out of your mangina please.

  • Myung

    If the Celtics go 43-0 the rest of the way (making them 73-9), then the 72-10 Bulls record will be bested by the 2008-09 Celtics squad by one game. Right.

  • http://allday-fadeaway.blogspot.com nbk

    hey Bryan its January and they are not missing the playoffs, and that swag that made them “lose” also got them a ring, and i am pretty sure the ring is what is making other teams play w/ more intensity then normal not their swagger.

    Wow, really Holly? Awesome. Joe Dumars better have a large check prepared.

  • http://lastknickstanding.blogspot.com Bryan

    Its easy to be right when nobody is disputing the point you try and bring up. Excellent prediction Kreskin, a team that’s currently leading their division by a mile is gonna make the playoffs. Why are you just a commentor? You should really get paid for these bold statements you make everyday. If I haven’t said it before thank you for blessing us with gems of wisdom every single f*cking day.

    Beating the Celtics now is like sleeping with Paris Hilton – it was impressive at first but now anyone who feels like it can do it.

    I guess I don’t mind NBK nearly as much as some of you. Maybe I’m in the minority, but I like what he brings to this site. I also happen to like him much more than Mr. “Play wit it,” but maybe that’s just me.

  • http://lastknickstanding.blogspot.com Bryan

    You’re dead on again. Your comment had nothing to do with my comment , man you really are in a class by yourself. No one , myself included, ever said anything at all about the celtics missing the playoffs. No one. So once you create an argument to try and sound like you know what you’re talking about like every other day. Hey I have one , Shaq is going to the hall of fame I don’t care what any of you say. I must know basketball because I know Shaq is a hall of famer, everyone respect my knowledge about the game , if not I will create more controversy with another bold prediction about the lakers making the playoffs.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Clearly, being a Hawks fan all these years has beaten Myung’s soul into a we-are-the-world mindframe.

  • Myung

    Well, you can slide this time since the Hawks are finally respectable after 20 years, Myung.

  • Myung

    Sorry, B Long, but I can’t agree. Then again, I’m wondering if DP didn’t write “play wit it” at the end of every post, I might have actually read what he had to say.

    The Raptors should fire their coach. That might give them a much needed jolt.

    “I’m an idiot”. You’re welcome, Allen.

    Clearly coaching was not the only problem in Toronto.

    Just because.

    Colangelo will figure out what is best for Toronto Holly don’t stress. Sam Mitchel lasted as long as he did only because of that one “break-out” year even though i think their low expectations made their achievement overhyped. It ruined everything Mitchel would do after that unless he took them to the ECF

    Kobe… and I’ll throw in a Mamba just to cancel out Farmer Jones.

  • Boston Baller

    Don’t worry too much about the Celtics, they’ll be ok. As far as them being paris hilton that was funny. I’m sure some of the same hatred was being tossed at The C’s even after they won it. I’m sure the same people were saying that they suck, I’m sure they c’s cared what they thought as they were passing the trophy around. lol.
