It’s a good sign when Max, Theo, Hermann (!), and Stuckey are outplaying the opposing team’s starters. So far, so good. Six minutes left in game one.
Also, despite my reservations (why take the minutes from my boy Amir?), Theo is playing great—and youthful!—basketball.
I skipped most of the Raps-Magic series, really the only first round series I ignored. But Dwight looked much better than this late in the regular season. And they’ll shoot much better than this (from three and from the line) later in the series. But, still, so far, so good.
