I know its going to be impossible to maintain this level of play; but what the hell its beautiful to watch in the meantime.
If Gerald Wallace continues to come out hitting jumpshots early like he did against the Suns; the rest of the NBA is in trouble.
The Suns aren't actually the great team they're thought to be. After a huge November, they went 7-9 in December and now 3-5 so far in January. The roster they put on the floor against the Cats really wasn't so scary. Who is JRich going to guard? Jax? Murray?
Goran Dragic? What?
Grant Hill can't run with us. Channing Frye is soft as Puffs.
BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM 39 POINT LEAD. I'll give this game 10 WHOA's because I think that's at least how many OMG's and WOW's it got from me sitting there watching it. It was the best tonic I could have wished for to treat my Bobcats basketball frustrations. I'm so happy I went to this game.
Stephen Jackson has been a revelation. The confidence he's exuding now has burned into Wallace and together they're a couple of incredibly bad mofo's. I've not seen anyone on the Bobcats ever be so vocal around the bench and on the court. During the game he'll be talking to the coaches as he moves by. With intensity. He wants answers. He gives answers.
I watched Felts one time working the ball against Nash outside the 3-point line. As Jax runs by he cuts behind Nash and pushes him in the back as he goes by. It was very stuble, the refs sure didn't see it; but Nash stumbled. It made me wonder how much of that crap Nash has to take, and very happy we were the ones giving it.
When Jared Dudley came into the game for the first time, he had the misfortune of standing next to Gerald Wallace at the free throw line. Wallace literally turns his back to the basket and with a big smile starts talking right into Jared's ear. Wallace was totally enjoying the moment. Jared smiled back but seemed a bit nervous. He was clearly wanting to be somewhere else.
That carried on later in the game as Crash continued to enjoy spending time one-on-one with Dudley.
LB was coaching his freaking ass off. The big lead didn't matter. At one point he was clearly upset with Derrick Brown for allowing the Suns to score inside and another time with DJ for well being DJ I guess. Hey, its coaching not criticism.
This team is having fun right now and working harder than I've ever seen them (or anyone else) work. The Kings on Monday will likely be a more difficult test than the Suns were. They've got a much bigger backcourt with Tyreke Evans and Kevin Martin both 6-6 or over. Should be fun to watch. They get smaller though when Udrih goes into the game.
