The Post Up: Magical Sunday

And pretty, pointed toes on that catch.

by Holly MacKenzie

Good Morning!

Congratulations, Steelers fans. And what a game that was. That catch/toe-point touchdown by Santonio Holmes was breathtaking, wasn’t it? He looked like a damn ballerina  pointing his toes to ensure they touched and the TD was complete. Beautiful.

Basketball is my game as you all know, but any sport gets that hype, that excitement flowing through your veins. Last night I was watching the game calmly and then all of a sudden things were on the line and I couldn’t help but sit up a little straighter, lean forward and inch towards the edge of my seat. Great, great game.

Beautiful performance by Jennifer Hudson pregame as well. That one got to me a little bit. Bless her beautiful heart.

On to basketball, only a short (and early), day in the league yesterday because of the Superbowl, but I only got to see the Raptors/Magic game because I was at the arena for awhile before and after it.

I do need to address one other thing that I’m sure Marcel already has covered for us. Andrew Bynum. I was working Saturday night liveblogging the Hornets @ Spurs game over at The Score and my heart just flip-flopped when I started getting the IM, GChat and text messages. Kobe goes to the hoop, goes down into Bynum’s knee and it looks bad. Your dude Bynum looks like he’s As;ldajkfooiajsdf. Really?done. There goes the Lakers season. And many other variations of the same.

First of all, I’m hoping and praying for Bynum’s sake that the injury is not serious. Moreso than a championship, he deserves a full season so he can build upon what he has done so far this year. Second,  mfgkhdksdkidgfjhdfgkj. Really? Really? And don’t even tell me it’s karma for G-Wall. I’ve heard that a couple of times and it just stings my soul.

Get well soon, Andrew.

To anyone wondering the importance of Bynum to the Lakers championship hopes, look no further than Kobe Bryant’s face as he looks down to watch Bynum writhe in pain.

Thoughts while watching the Spurs/Hornets game Saturday night:

- Spurs are really, really good.

- Pop doesn’t mess up his rotations unlike Byron (who I love and admire, on most nights), who sits Chris Paul down in the third for a breather when he’s on a roll. He’s young and in good shape, let him play, Coach.

- Michael Finley’s still got it. Corner 3s, shots to beat the shot clock, it doesn’t matter, just get the ball to Finley and let him bail you out.

- Manu and Tony Parker are each ridiculously fast.

- I really enjoy watching George Hill, but didn’t enjoy liveblogging Spurs and Suns Thursday night and having a George Hill and a Grant Hill playing against one another.

Okay, here we go with some action from yesterday. Also, a note about Friday’s post. Ryne and I had some technical difficulties (read: Somehow the intro didn’t save), so my apologies for the shortened version.

Boston 109 Minnesota 101

The Celtics took down the Timberwolves, 109-101 in Boston yesterday. Without KG who had the flu, it was Paul Pierce who put in work, scoring 36 points to go with 8 rebounds and 6 assists to get the Celtics their 11th straight victory. After outscoring the TWolves 33-20 in the second quarter, they stretched their lead to as many as 21 in the third quarter and went on easily to the victory from there. Ray Allen had 22 points for the Celtics while Glen Davis who started for KG put in 12 points and 6 boards. Al Jefferson led the way for the Timberwolves with 34 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocked shots. Randy Foye had 21 points and 9 assists and Ryan Gomes added 17.

Cleveland 90 Detroit 80

After losing a tough one to the Celtics on Friday night, the Pistons continued to struggle, particularly on Sundays as they were defeated by the Cavs, 90-80 yesterday afternoon. While the Cavs took control in the third, it was a horrendous fourth quarter that doomed the Pistons. Being outscored 32-14 over the final 12 minutes, the Pistons are still looking for answers and it doesn’t appear that Allen Iverson’s got them. LeBron James finished with 33 points and 8 assists while Mo Williams added 22 and Zydrunas Ilgauskas scored 13. For the Pistons, Iverson finished with 22 points, Richard Hamilton had 16 off of the bench and Amir Johnson added 10 points to go with 9 boards.

Sacramento 122 Oklahoma City 118 OT

It was Kevin Martin’s 26th birthday and he wanted a win. He wanted a win so he went out and got one, scoring 37 points to help the Kings avoid a nine-game losing streak and grab the overtime victory against the newly improved Oklahoma City Thunder. The Kings took the game 122-118 thanks to Bobby Jackson who dropped in 6 of his 11 points in the overtime session. This was a wild one to get into overtime as Jeff Green was fouled and had to make the first free throw, intentionally miss the second, then grabbed the rebound and got the putback to tie the game and force the extra session. It was a jumper from Jackson that put the Kings up four with 1:42 remaining and they were able to hold off the Thunder from there. John Salmons was fantastic for Sacramento with 19 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists while Jason Thompson had 15 and Francisco Garcia added 17 off of the bench. The Thunder were led by Kevin Durant’s 33 points and a career-high 34 points to go wtih 8 assists from rookie Russell Westbrook while Jeff Green had 28 points, 13 rebounds and 5 assists in the loss.

Orlando 113 Toronto 90

Dwight, Jameer & Co. came into Toronto looking for a win and hoping they’d be able to slow down Chris Bosh. Bosh had regularly torched the Magic for 30+ points and they knew he’d be the one to focus in on if they wanted an easy afternoon. For once, they were able to do just that. After a close first half that saw the Raptors impress and go into the locker room only trailing six, 53-47. It was the third quarter where things fell apart for Toronto. Giving up three’s left and right, the Raptors allowed the Magic to find their groove, connecting on 7-10 three-pointers in the quarter as they outscored Toronto 34-18 in the period and went into the fourth up big, 87-65. The final quarter was just a formality as the Magic continued to roll to their 18th road win of the season (18-6) and the Raptors again, were booed loudly off of the court. Orlando finished the game connecting on 13 three-pointers as compared to only two makes for the Raptors in a game that never saw Toronto hold a lead. Howard finished with 29 and 14 while Nelson was fantastic for the Magic finishing with 18 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds to just miss out on the triple-double. Mickael Pietrus added 22 points off of the bench and Rashard Lewis scored 15. Jose Calderon had 16 points for the Raptors while Andrea Bargnani scored 12 and Bosh added 11 on only 4-11 shooting.

    Glad you enjoyed the Super Bowl, Holly…..it turned into a great game. I know my man TAD keeps telling everyone in earshot that the Pistons can turn things around…..but after watching about my 10th full game of them yesterday…it’s safe to say thy are a team that has no danger quotent behind them with the current makeup and the DEFINITLEY need to move someone before the trade deadline to make something happen positive. Did I hear right or was it a misquote by one of the announcers yesterday that the Pistons are 4-11 over the last 15 games? That can’t be right can it?

  • http://www.friendster.com/sesa Sesa

    It kills me to say this Holly, but Karma is in the works for Bynum.
    As much as I liked him to stay healthy, he had his karma to pay on Gerald Wallace.

    I gotta say, since I had such low expectations for that superbowl, I was pretty much blown away by it.
    My peeps were debating who they thought the Finals MVP was going to be before the game started, and I sort of pulled the name Santonio Holmes out of my arse (mostly because I love shouting SANNNN-TONIOOOOO).
    Well, turns out I’m a prophet.

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    Jennifer Hudson did look pretty amazing. I’m still amamzed she’s been in the public eye this much after such a terrible family tragedy. Santonio Holmes and Jerome Harrison shoulda been co-MVPs. I was really just rooting for a good game, and we certainly got that.

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    Also, Thank you Jeff Green. What an underrated young player he’s become.

  • mike

    Looks like it would have been better if Bynum got suspended. For the Lakers I mean.

    apropos Hill (s): the ongoing resurgence of Grant’s hops, drive and je ne sais quoi is making me feel giddy. Latest example, see Grant Hill dunki… Nahh, cramming the ball on some fool (noah?) last weekend like it was Detroit 99 up in here. That slam, by a 36 year old with a history of ankle surgeries floored me. kudos as well to Manu for making Hilton armstrong cry for mama. (nasty)

    Poor Detroit.
    The pieces are there, the connection and group dynamic is not. Watching the Cavs and watching the Pistons it was obvious that one team likes each other and is bonded, while the other team is just doing its job. So sad.
    Oh well, maybe things will get better, but I doubt it. The Pistons can still beat Orlando in a seven game series.

    “The Pistons can still beat Orlando in a seven game series.” I don’t know about that Allen.

    Quick thoughts: Amazing Superbowl. Tough love for Bynum, may he get well soon, good too see that Kobe was really looking worried for the young guy’s health and making sure he was alright, instead of thinking about his diminishing chances of a Shaq-less ring.. hmm.. wait a minute what was 24′s reaction again? Although I still think that Mo W. should have made the All-Star team in front of him, I have to admit that Jameer is one feisty little bugger. After watching Det-Cle I just have to say: Like I’ve said before Detroit need to start rebuilding NOW, they’re not close to winning anything as currently constituted (sorry TAD), also Rasheed again disapeared completely against another top team, love Sheed but he’s looking increasingly like he’s going downhill. So overrated at this stage imo.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ BETCATS

    I also do not agree with this karma bussiness. I am actually getting people yelling like its a attempted murder of their idea that it is on a Bobcats Fan website. As much as i think Bynum commited a reckless play, nobody ‘deserves’ to get injured.

    To follow up on LZ’s comment…..I completley agree with Sheed’s playing status at the moment. 90% of the time he’s floating at the three point point line on offense and his defensive rotations are just terrible. I think he’s done in Detroit…..and hopefully it will be by the trade deadline. He’s disinterested and it’s pretty sad. This is a guy who’s skill set is maybe in the top 5 of PF’s throughout the league….yet he’s playing like he’s a career backup that can’t change a game.

  • riggs

    anyone wanna co-sign that people are crazy calling last nights game the best in superbowl history? have they forgotten last years?

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

    And this is all an extension of Curry’s effect (lack of) on the team. And while I hate the Pistons…..I wanted to see them do well with the AI trade…..and that is a fantasy that has no chance of coming to fruition as long as the Cavs and Celts are in the conference (along with 90% of the other teams in the East as well).

  • http://www.ravingblacklunatic.blogspot.com Allenp

    Eboy
    I agree on the Celts and Cavs, I still think the Pistons are as good as any other team in the East behind those two. Believing in Orlando is a sucker’s bet, because it’s not impossible to neutralize Dwight Howard on offense, and if you do that the Magic are a team of jump shooters.
    I agree with you about Sheed on offense, but he’s still a pretty solid defender. It’s the offense and the rebounding that are inconsistent.
    LZ
    The Piston are rebuilding. They have two massive contracts that come of the books at the end of the season. They have a young point guard, a few young forwards and solid vets at the two guard and three guard position. Dumars is rebuilding the right way, not the dumb way.

  • riggs

    @Eboy: sheed shouldve been done way before chauncey, i was more surprised at them not trading sheed than them trading big shot

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

    Well….in theory I agree with Allen…..but in actuality….Detroit is not better than Orlando, with orlando having home court in a playoff series. This isn’t the old Pistons squads that could win anywhere….they might take a game in Orlando….but Orlando can surely take one Detroit as well. And yeah….the rebuilding thing is right there in plain sight…..they just need to pull off one decent deal and they could be in that conversation again this season….regardless of which way they go in the offseason.

  • http://danchamb.com.br/Home/ Lz – Cphfinest3

    Allenp; agree that Dumars have allready taken the first step in the rebuilding process, but he should ship Sheed (as long as he still has value) and maybe RIP out as quickly as possible, and start building around Stuckey and Prince (to a lesser extent Maxiell). To further elaborate on your stance on Sheed, he’s no way a decent defender. For a 6’11 long limbed guy, he is (and always have been) a below average rebounder, shotblocker, and not much of a presence inside. Like Eboy said his rotations are slow and just plain bad. He’s completely disinterested, and it seems that the only thing making him suit up is his paycheck and the chance to bark at officials. Don’t label me a hater, as I’ve always loved Sheed’s demeanor and game, but the state he’s in as a player is just sad these days. Maxiell should play more, at least he’s interested in working up a sweat.

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

    I should also put it out there too that I’ve always loved Sheed’s game too….so I’m not hating either.

    LZ
    I”m not calling you a hater. I just think you and Eboy are misinformed.
    When I watch the Pistons, I rarely see Sheed cheat the team on defense. His rotations weren’t off last night. He was coming from the weakside to help after the other Pistons, like Iverson, misplayed a pick and roll. I saw him trying to get over to help, but also not wanting to leave Big Z for an open shot. When I’ve watched that games, I’ve felt that Sheed is the Pistons most cerebral defender. Typically, he plays solid defense and at times it’s outstanding.
    However, he regularly cheats the team on offense and on the glass. Way too much drifting, way too many three pointers that are not set shots. Sheed has transformed himself into a 6’11″ shooting guard, something I’ve been saying since the trade happened.
    Personally, I think the Pistons are going to have to find a way to bond and stop pouting. They are very similiar to the Suns right now. Everybody on the team needs an attitude adjustement.
    Also, while I agree that Chauney was the leader and his impact on the team is obvious now, I will say that the Pistons have had problems with consistency and effort since their second trip to the Finals. Things look worse now because they introduced a new player and new coach, but the core issues have been there for a while.
    Finally, Mark Jackson is my hero for pointing out that the same people who complain about Iverson’s dribbling and defense (I’m looking at you Doug Collins) rarely make the same complaints about Steve Nash. It needed to be said.

  • http://danchamb.com.br/Home/ Lz – Cphfinest3

    Allenp; I know you’re not labeling me a hater, just wanted to set the record straight, since I was having a pretty strong go at Wallace. Prince is Pistons best defender, by far. We are going to have to disagree about Sheed’s defence, cause I think it’s average at most considering his height, length, frame, and experience. Nash should get a pass, about the dribbling since he rack’s up numerous assists, set up the whole Suns offense, and shoots at a very high %. About his defence you’re completely right though, and I agree that’s just wrong that experts seem to skip that topic. Nash is an amazing teamleader, but a player only playing on side of the floor should never ever have won a MVP (let alone two).

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

    I also loved Mark Jackson for calling out Rick Barry for his Lebron criticisms.

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

    Put it like this….when Sheed is locked in and motivated….he’s a premier PF and the Pistons of old were deadly and the “new” Pistons have the ability to be a night in, night out force. When he plays the way he did on Sunday….he and the Pistons are 2nd rate.

  • http://www.myspace.com/hemantsbeats what

    The Pistons looked pretty good for the first three quarters yesterday. I don’t think it’s impossible for that team to come together before the playoffs (although as a Hawks fan I hope they don’t). But I agree with Allenp about Rasheed Wallace though, he kills their offensive flow. They already have a guy in Iverson who takes a lot of shots out of the flow of the offense, but at least he makes a lot of them. You can’t have two players like that though.

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    Sheed is the ONLY guy I’ve seen be able to guard Duncan, and when he works for that baseline turnaround NOBODY can guard him. I just think he only plays hard against guys he doesn’t like or is another premier PF. When he feels like they’re playing for the ring he goes hard, he might have some doubts about whether this team can go all the way, and now his effort is lacking. Also, I never gave Chauncey enough credit, especially for keeping that circus running.

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    That was confusing… I meant he only plays hard aginst guys he doesn’t like and premier PFs(Duncan, KG, Amare, Bosh). He’s always had issues sustaining his effort, but he’s been especially inconsistent/unmotivated this season.

  • http://www.ravingblacklunatic.blogspot.com Allenp

    Ciolk
    I agree with you that he plays really hard against guys he doesn’t like. Against premier forwards, I feel like sometimes he drifts WAY too much on offense. He doesn’t mix it up at all on the block with the premier cats. Against inferior cats he doesn’t like, he’ll post up sparingly at least, but against the elit cats, he just wants to drift and shoot threes. I honestly don’t have a problem with him shooting shots when his feet or set and he has some time, but wheneve he has to take a dribble, or is flashing off a down screen, it’s just ridiculous. That’s is unacceptable. Sheed should be Garnett, period. There is no excuse for him not matching Garnett’s level of play. None.

  • http://fdsklf.com Jukai

    Allenp, you and Ciolk always found Rasheed to be better than I’ve found him. He’s got a GOOD outside shot, and a GOOD post-game, he’s an ABOVE AVERAGE rebounder… but he never struck me as anything above that. He had his games, btu I always felt like those were him being streaky rather than actually giving it his all.
    That being said, it’s plain to see he’s notoriously lazy.

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Sometimes I think Grant’s injuries were something of a blessing in disguise because he suffered so much less wear and tear. Now that he’s finally healthy, he’s 36 going on 30. Put it this way: Grant has played 772 career NBA games (including the playoffs). Kobe Bryant has played 1,064.

    No argument here Russ, but anytime i hear that argument, i state the fact that he’s 36 and that ankle business could just as well have been the end of his career (not to mention his life, remember the staph infection…yowza). So it’s quite amazing for me to see a 36 year old, fresh odometer or not, scooting to rim, taking off just inside the painted area and making a “big man” eat his frosties. I just luv that kinda stuff.

    Oh, I’m not saying it’s not remarkable. I love watching him play, too—makes me feel a little less ancient. Had you told me five years ago that he’d be getting regular-rotation minutes for an uptempo team and yoking it on people I would have never believed you. Grant’s amazing.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    Jaymes WENT their. Line crossin good!!!

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

    Uhm….I just read 8 to 12 weeks for Bynum….I need confirmation!!!!

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

    For a torn MCL.

    Hey Mcfish, how’s that namechange coming along. You gotta hand it to jaymes here, his whore comment was kinda out there in the amazing category.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    12 weeks for healing or 12 weeks total time including rehab?

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

    Dark….I just read it on NBA.com…..it says 8-12 weeks but doesn’t specify rehab time (I could only assume it includes it)

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Wow. Lakers must be feeling like Denzel right now. Deja vu, b*atches.

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

    It is quite ironic that he injured his knee in the game he should have been suspended for.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Ba-da-Bing! was waiting for the first commenter to jump on that one, TAD. Good on ya.

    Anything for J. Prudifurg…

    While I truly feel bad for a dude that’s been playing so well as of late (not withstanding the Wallace bullsh*t)and can’t seem to get past knee issues….I hope Lakers fans will now back off their ridiculous ray of hope attitudes and realize that seasons can take huge detours in just a blink of an eye. This is not going to stop them….but it will slow them and make their “solid” defense a lot less sturdy.

    Bynum going down has to be a early christmas present for me. thanks santa.

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

    And leaves the door wide open for the Spurs as well.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com DP

    I have faith in Pau. I have faith in Pau. I have faith in Pau. I have faith in Pau. It’s not working…

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Wow, this would be similar in scope to Yao or Howard missing for weeks on end, BUT those yellow/purple boys sure have a deep team. Time for whiney Pau to man up and start his tirades en espagnol to the refs.

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

    The Spurs have to be the favorite in the West now, no?

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

    Yeah…..that whole Pau thing? Keep wishing.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Ok, maybe NOT Howard. Orlando would be truly screwed without his contributions. More like Houston missing Ming, better comparison. My bad.

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    Wow this is like Christmas morning – is it 6 weeks? 8? Double digits? 12? So exciting.

  • http://jamescleaton.ning.com jaymes

    They did ok without him last year..I think they’ll cruise into the Finals even without Bynum, but i can’t see them knockin over the Celt’s without him…

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

    Dark…….basically, if he somehow doesn’t return at the level he has been playing at…..the Lakers are the same team they were last season and while they beat a not so perfect Spurs team….they’ll have a hard time duplicating that feat again if they were to meet and there is no WAY they beat cleveland or Boston without Bynum’s presence.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com DP

    That’s why i said it is failing miserably.

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

    They’ll be no “cruising” without him in the lineup.

  • http://jamescleaton.ning.com jaymes

    They pretty much cruised through it last year without him…only minor away hiccups IMO

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

    Yeah….we’ll see…

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    One more right hand injury for the Mamba and it’s over

  • http://jamescleaton.ning.com jaymes

    I think they can beat Cleveland without Bynum, but mentally i think it’ll be too tough to beat Boston with the same team from a year ago.

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    ^Negative. Big Z’s back and he brought his 3 point shot.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Basically, it’s time for Phil to adopt the “us against the world” stance with the team. But seeing that Hell-A’s mostly warm weather, insanely hot accessible groupies (for superstars anyway) and partés, don’t think this bunch of sunnyboys will embrace the Bostonesque party line.

  • http://jamescleaton.ning.com jaymes

    How silly of me..yeah “Z for 3 for the win” has a nice ring to it

  • http://jamescleaton.ning.com jaymes

    They might to adopt the “us is better than the world” stance Dark..?

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

    Idiots.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Actually jaymes, THAT one they do by heart.

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    jaymes, are you saying somebody on the Lakers other than 24 is clutch? I’m not saying Z is clutch, far from it, but that ability is a definite asset which sets him apart from other bigs. Granted, Gasol makes the right plays at the right times (like against Boston on Christmas day) but when it’s crunch time, Cavs only have to stop Mamba (see: Finals, 2008).
    Having said that, if the Lakers snap the Cavs’ undefeated home streak, I’ll be impressed and scared. Unless they struggle the rest of the season, of course.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com DP

    I still think my team is going to be in the Finals against the cavs but it will not be easy by task at all. Spurs will make a little push and i want to see a epic western conference finals since Ginobli is healthy now. and roger mason…

    Spurs/Cavs Part 2: Revenge of the Bron

  • http://jamescleaton.ning.com jaymes

    Anton, i’m saying the Lakes would probably prefer to play cleveland over boston without Bynum..They haven’t played them over 7 and therefore don’t know how they’d go..They know how they go against Boston without Bynum..And Fisher is pretty clutch?

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    We’ll see, all I know is this season has gotten 60% more exciting.

  • MeloMan13
