Well, that's disheartening. I'm currently watching Postgame Live with a white guy that isn't Marshall Harris and Donyell Marshall, who always sounds like he's drunk. Eddie just said he thought there may have been a "magic touch" tonight. Yeah, I'm pretty sure beating the Nets is magical. He also just said "package" about 15 times in one sentence. Unless he's R. Kelly, I don't think that's ok.
I'm gonna hit you up with some bullet points because I haven't done it in a while and Donyell's voice is putting me to sleep and/or wishing I was tippin back some.
- If you didn't watch tonight's game, congratulations. Watch an episode of Supernanny and it will evoke the same general reaction out of you. Each possession for both teams
- Check out the Louis Williams interview (can't find a link), he sounds so frustrated and fed up with the season. After he was told he'd be coming off the bench tonight, he complained about lack of consistency and how the year hasn't gone well. That's news to us on the site, I've been pleasantly surprised with consistency and the team's play. He ended up with an Eddie House 11 points, providing energy and not much else to a team that doesn't need him. Mmkay.
Jrue Holiday is good at basketball. Similar to the stats from the Knicks game, however, I'm not gonna get on my knees for anybody for putting up some decent numbers against the Nets. The Nets. But I can pat Jrue on the head for playing well and there's nothing you can do about it. 19-7-7 on 8 of 11 shooting and just one turnover. Keyon Dooling and Courtney Lee couldn't stay with him, and didn't particularly try. The media asked everybody how impressed they were with Jrue, and got Domonic Brown-like reactions from them, so his likability is another piece of good news to go with his lovely rookie year. On the offensive end, he's really working on his spin move to get by guys in game action. One thing that's hindering him is dribbling into traffic and coughing it up a bit too much, although it didn't happen tonight because the Nets were doing their best impression of Scott Schroeder defense. I don't think it's absurd to think Jrue can be a capable starter on both ends next season, when we will presumably be an actual basketball team. +18 for him on the night.
- A key to this game was Andre Iguodala taking the ball to the basket. He didn't shoot any three's tonight and while he claimed it wasn't a conscious decision, I believe someone got to him and told him to play to his strengths. At least that's what I would say. 20 points on 14 shots with 8 dimes and a bunch of orchestrating fast breaks. While Chris-Douglas-Roberts-got-the-best-of-him (enough hyphens CDR?) to the tune of 23 crafty points (have I mentioned he's crafty?), he held
