In case you were not watching (don’t even try to lie and say you were; Santa Claus will hear you!), the team was well on its way to another humiliating loss to the Orlando Magic Tuesday night when they were already down by 20 with barely two minutes gone in the second period. Then the craziest thing happened.
Paul Silas got tossed after trying to argue a call (that’s not the crazy part though), and the guys started to play some real good basketball (that’s the crazy part).
They started to make a show of it in the second period when they started to battle back, and even went on a 22-1 run (crazy, I know).
Cory Maggette might finally be living up to the billing he gave himself at the start of the season when he said he was the focal point of the offense with a season high 29 points on the night. As good a his performance was the night belonged to B-mack, Bismack Biyombo. Not only did he do well against Dwight Howard holding him to 15 points and 17 rebounds (that is good against Howard), but he chimed in 10 points of his own to go with 15 rebounds and seven blocks.
I’m starting to see why this guy was so eager to get over here and start playing ball.
