The whitest dynamic duo in modern NBA history?
It doesn’t look good for the Rockets (it never really did), who played tough but couldn’t capitalize on their chances. Now they have to go into the toughest building in the league down 0-2. Here comes another long off-season for T-Mac, who seems to me like a legitimately good dude. I don’t know what that team needs to get to the next level—an elite point guard? Skip to my Lou was very solid this season, and his absence hurt over these last games. And Scola is a baller (San Antonio couldn’t use him a little against the Suns?)
Can the Jazz win the whole thing? A quick sweep would certainly help their chances in the west.
Boozer and DWill form a great one-two punch. Kirilenko and Okur are unique and talented but mercurial, not exactly guys I’d love to be relying on in the clutch. Korver can shoot with anyone, Harpring seems to be exactly the same solid role player he’s been for his last 40 years in the league. Millsap, Brewer and Price are good pieces, but young but untested (though Price nailed a ginorm three at the end of the third quarter that turned a two point deficit into a one point Jazz lead.)
That doesn’t seem like enough to win the whole thing, does it? But this team is young and fresh, and really good at home. This core should be good for a long time (though they’re going to have the misfortune of battling Kobe, Pau, and Bynum until Kobe retires from the league to try pro tennis.)
Regarding Wizz-Cavs game two, I think Lebron’s 30, 12 dimes, 9 boards says enough.
