I Wish My Elbow Hurt That Badly

by

LeBron James had an off night Monday versus the Boston Celtics.  He scored only 24 points on 47% shooting, and grabbed only seven rebounds, and handed out only seven assists.  I mean, if he keeps that up, he might not put up the greatest playoff performance of all time.  You can always play defense though, even if your offense isn’t clicking.  LeBron embraced that adage, and got three steals and two blocks.

Sarcasm aside, the real problem last night was not LeBron’s elbow.  Though, why he took four threes with his sore shooting arm is beyond me.  The real problem was Mo Williams, Anthony Parker, Jamario Moon, and Delonte West combining for 5 buckets.  That’s pretty bad.  Really bad, actually.  So those guys need to set up.  But as far as the elbow goes, if the worst thing that it does is make LeBron drive all the time, and play post up basketball to the tune of 15 free throws a game and 24-34 points per game, then it’s not a problem.  It’s a boon.

Celtics didn’t choke the game away in the 3rd and 4th quarters last night, a bad habit they developed in the regular season, and put on display in game 1.  We’ll see how self-satisfied Rasheed Wallace is come game 3.  My feeling is he will disappear just when the Celtics needs him.

    Did you hear that KG had a little chat with Sheed in the shower saturday night. Oh yeah, I’ll see if I can find the copy.

    “Or a shower. Kevin Garnett revealed on the team’s radio broadcast following Monday night’s 104-86 Game 2 win in Cleveland that he accosted Wallace in the bathing area after Game 1 and said the team needed more out of him. Garnett specifically requested 10 points and 10 rebounds, but the 17 with two boards were good enough.”

      Not sure how many days in a row I’d be crying if KG came and harassed me in the shower . . .
