Lets hand out some credits where due for this game. First off, Kyle Lowry wrecked havoc on our point guards. His aggressive defense had a lot to do with our poor ball movement. Chandler Parsons showed more energy and as much talent as the whole Bobcats roster. Finally, Sam Dalembert showed up and made his presence felt against our weak interior. I didn't think he could do that.
On the flip:
The refs must have been on "Scola Alert" because they didn't let the poor guy do anything. All his fouls seemed legitimate; just not usually called. Not tonite big fella!
Gana Diop should never ever be given the ball anywhere outside of 5 feet from the basket. Nothing good can come of that. If that should ever happen during practice, whistles shall be blown immediately and wind sprints ordered up for all.
Boris Diaw - les eww, et double eww; la stinky-piooo.
Hey I love to see Biyombo get more minutes; er, check that, it's getting painful. Poor Biz has no idea what he's doing and I think that will be to his detriment if he doesn't get pulled out for some serious coaching and practice in game situations.
The 3rd Quarter of this game was so bad that Dell Curry, lacking any profound color commentary; went completely quiet, leaving poor haha Steve Martin to his own resources.
If Dell would have spoken his mind perhaps a simple "My God, this is awful" might have come up. To which, a simple "HaHa You're Right again Dell!!" might have come from somewhere atop the surface of Steve's play-by-play awareness.
Saving the best for last; with about 20 seconds left and the game effectively over the Bobcats ran an inbounds play that had all 4 players running after each other in a circle; with no one even looking for the inbounds pass. Man I chirped out loud and almost hit the floor laughing.
Steve Martin: "No ones looking for the ball!!"
Dell Curry: (deadpan) "ehhhh lot of spinning there but uhhh no catching"
On a positive note though DJ White, "Mully" (noBJ thank you, the Knicks twitterverse is killing me) and Hendo continue their general awesomeness; with UPS and Hendo each providing a Sports Center highlight dunk.
1. Washington Wizards 1-8 !!!!
2. Charlotte Bobcats! 2-8 (3 teams tied)
