Sorry for the late post, folks, but James had an emergency pop up and I was neck deep in work related stuff. You don’t care, just so long as someone can sing the praises of J.J. Hickson from last night. Ahem. “He’s in the middle without any plans, he’s a boy and he’s a man. He had EIGHTEEN rebounds last night, he had EIGHTEEN points, oh what a sight. EIGHTEEN! He also had 3 blocks. He’s gotta get into your face, don’t go bringing that ball in his space. Yeah!” Thank you.
Andre Iguodala – He missed six three point attempts, keeping his score at 13 while adding 5 boards, 4 assists and a steal.
Ty Lawson – He missed four from behind the arc as the nuggets actually missed all 22 from downtown, which is sad. However, Lawson made up for it with 8 assists to go along with 13 points and 3 rebounds.
Serge Ibaka – Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant both hit for 30+ points (Westbrook fell just shy of a triple double), and the only other Thunder with more than 9 points was Serge, who had 14 (including a three), plus 9 rebounds and 5 blocks.
Alexey Shved – Ain’t just a threat, no, it’s a promise well kept, so when all is said and done, his name is Shved: 12/7/12/1 (with 2 threes). In a word? Shved. Simply stated…Sheved.
Ricky Rubio – Finished with 0 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and a steal. Cue Price is Right failure music.
Dwyane Wade – Took 3 three point attempts (!) and actually hit 1 of them (!!!). He finished with 19 points, 5 rebounds, 6 dimes and a block.
Shane Battier – With 3 of 7 from downtown, he tallied 13 points to go with 4 boards and 2 assists.
O.J. Mayo – When Mayo is bad, it smells awful: 3-14 from the floor (0-5 from downtown), 8/2/0/0.
Chris Kaman – No man is an island, not even the Kaman Island, and he joined his team in sucking last night: 8/2/0 with no blocks.
