Hope you guys are over the 0-2 start…I know I’m not. Last Night’s loss to the Pacers is a tough one to swallow. Being up by 10 or 9 throughout much of the 2nd and 3rd quarters only to let it fall apart in the fourth quarter is troubling. Danny Granger led scoring with 33 points but he was playing with 5 fouls much of the 4th quarter, fouling out with 44 seconds left in the game. The killers in this game were Josh McRoberts and TyTy Hansbrough. Combining for only20 points, they made the runs that kept and put the Pacers within and beyond striking distance. No one blocked out on McRoberts while he had a string of putbacks through the 3rd quarter. The Bobcats were up 8 and the Pacers were MISSING shots, “who’s on the white kid from Duke that’s played in 84 total games over 3 years and averages 2.5 rebounds and 3.3 points?” ”Don’t worry about it, he won’t” Wait but he did and the Pacers all of a sudden have life.
Next on our list of unimpressive honky ass white boys, Ty Ty Hansbrough! Didn’t do much, didn’t enter the game until the 7:42 mark in the 2nd quarter. 8 points for his tenacity in the 2nd and a timely 4 more to end the game in the final minute. I actually saw a headline “Hansbrough beats Bobcats.” How can captain vertigo singlehandedly beat a playoff team? Better figure it out quick Larry cause tonight, a team most people say was greatly improved this offseason looks to duplicate the feat.
Mille-wau-kay, obviously an evil place if they can elect 3 Socialist Mayors, got a kid with a goofy haircut or 4. Bogut is from Australia, which I don’t like. Let’s go over this “much improved” comment. ESPN’s pre-season breakdown has many saying they will be 5th seed entering the playoffs. Adande calls them “The league’s most useful roster.” To me, hanging Corey Maggette, Drew Gooden and John Salmons as massive improvements and “the most useful” is a bit inaccurate. They have yet to gel in the cheese state and I’m not fully impressed.
