Tonights Box Score Insights

February 23, 2008

A new feature to halfbloghalfmazing.  Here are observations on some of tonights games based solely on the box scores.  Note that not all of tonights games are finished.  Here we go:

Orlando vs. Philly

  • Outside of Iguodola, I cant find any promising talent on the 76ers
  • isnt it amazing how Hedo Turkoglu is outplaying Rashard Lewis on a nightly basis?  Yet rashard is Orlando’s 100 million dollar man!

New York vs. Toronto

  • knicks actually won
  • Eddy Curry played 9:29 despite having only 1 foul.  at the end of last year eddy showed all star potential.  isiah trades for zach and kills eddy’s confidence.  eddy cant play anymore and we will be lucky if we get .30 on the dollar

Wizards vs. Lebron

  • Lebron beat the wizards tonight
  • damon jones played his first good game  in 3 years
  • even with arenas i dont like the makeup of the wizards

Denver vs. Chicago

  • Is george karl just a really bad coach?  The nuggets have AI, Melo and Camby yet they still lost this game.  The AI Melo experiment is not working….
  • call me crazy but steve blake was a very important piece of the nuggets core last year.  its a shame they lost him

Atlanta vs. Golden State

  • Atlanta blowing them out right now.  Bibby was a fantastic pick up
  • webber proving that he is worthless
  • where is Stephen Jackson?

Boston vs. Phoenix

  • Suns up 13 at the half and nash has only 2 assists!
  • Shaq has 8 boards and 1 block at the half.  took only 2 shots.  I like this.
