Ballin’: A Glimpse at Life Without Steve Nash

NBA , Video TheBigLead November 19th. 2010, 10:30am Orlando 105, Phoenix 89: So this is what life looks like without Steve Nash (groin). Only 15 assists (they average 20.9 per night), and 3-of-18 from deep (season average of 37.5 % thanks to Nash setting things up). Perhaps Goran Dragic needs more run this year so he’s ready to take over in 2011. The Magic are 8-3, 2nd best in the East behind Boston (9-2). Too bad all anyone remembers is Orlando getting destroyed by the Heat and collapsing against the Jazz. Jameer Nelson had 12 assists and zero turnovers . Indiana 107, LA Clippers 80: Who’s ready to eliminate Vinny Del Negro’s team from playoff contention? Sure, the injuries hurt, and this is the youngest roster in the league, but we expected much, much more from the Clippers, who are now 1-12. The Pacers hit 14 three-pointers, 4-apiece by Brandon Rush, Danny Granger , and James Posey. Portland 86, Utah 83: Wesley Matthews started for the second game in a row in place of injured Brandon Roy, and scored 20 points and collected 10 rebounds. More importantly, he played suffocating defense on Carmelo Anthon y (5-of-15). Meanwhile, ‘Melo continues to talk about the Knicks . And this time, he took a bit of a shot at Chris Bosh. And we can’t tell if LeBron took a shot at Greg Oden , or he just can’t spell the kid’s last name. Leave a Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
