On a night when Lebron James faced off against D Wade (sans band-wade) the NBA decided to keep the rest of the schedule low key. This match up was must watch television, but most fans if you are not internet savvy or got the deep pockets to spring for NBA League pass missed out because somehow the game did not make it to National Television… Travesty! The game itself was everything you expected and more, but at the end of the day ‘Bron has a supporting cast that can actually pull their own weight. Wade’s performance was typical of the way he has been playing but at the end of the day Lebron had the better game and he did what was needed to bring his team back to win the game.
The Night in numbers
1 Triple double by Russell Westbrook v/s the Mav’s (first of his career)
83 Points between Lebron James and DWade
61 Total 3 pointers made in the NBA tonight with Lebron going 6-7 from distance
4 Minutes played by Antonio Daniels – not sure if he is being under utilized or just a bad fit??
5 Assists by Kidd to add to his 10,001
2 Players in double digits for Dallas – not acceptable when you holding on to the last playoff spot in the west
8 Turnovers for Wade on a night when he did everything but win then the game
18 Points by Kyle Weaver as he filled in for KD in the beatdown on the Mav’s
4 3 pointers made by Michael Finley in the 3rd Q v/s the clips – Think this is his last year?
40 Rebounds by the Wizards – with JSmooth and Al how does a team with no real C out rebound you??
0 Minutes played by Juan Dixon – maybe he needs to look into other careers?
33 Double double’s for CP3 including last night – only once has he had double digit assists without double digits in scoring
Heard last night: “They are fast friends”… really the last phrase I expect to hear during an NBA broadcast. On most nights Ralph Lawler is screaming “BINGO” or talking bout Lawler’s law but last night during the snoozefest that was the Clippers v/s Spurs he was fishing for things to talk about and decided to throw out this doozy. does one really refer to your friends as a fast friend? do we even say that anymore??
My LOTN Pick: Indiana Pacers -2 @ Sacramento Kings
