Ballin’: JaVale McGee Has Ridiculous Hops

NBA , Video TheBigLead November 22nd. 2010, 10:25am Detroit 115, Washington 110, OT: Can you believe Rip Hamilton has been in the NBA for 11 years? The cagey vet made five straight shots in OT and the Pistons rallied to victory. JaValelevator McGree collected 16 rebounds, scored 20 points, and even though he’s still raw, the kid consistently produces highlight-reel worthy plays. Agent Zero had a career-high 16 assists. John Wall missed his 4th straight game (foot), and based on what Blake Griffin did over the weekend , he’s lost the ROY lead. There’s plenty of time to rally, obviously. Toronto 102, Boston 101: Friday, the Celtics lost to the Durant-less Thunder when Delonte West missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer; Sunday, Boston led by three with :21 left before the Raptors stole one . Amir Johnson made two free throws with :02 left to drop the Celtics to 9- 4. Johnson, Toronto’s big offseason acquisition, recorded just his 2nd double-double of the young season (17 points, 11 rebounds). Orlando now has the best record in the East. LA Lakers 117, Golden State 89: Pau was perfect (10-for-10 shooting, 8-for-8 FTs, 28 points), the Warriors fell behind big early and never recovered. Golden State was missing four power forwards due to injury. New Orleans 75, Sacramento 71: The Hornets are 11-1 . You may have missed it over the weekend, but they traded Peja (expiring contract) and Jerryd Bayless to Toronto for Jarrett Jack . The move left many scratching their heads, because when you’ve got an expiring deal like Peja’s, you try to get plenty back in return. Jarrett Jack is a nice, solid point reserve point guard who will spell Chris Paul .. but couldn’t they have gotten more? Remember that 3-1 Kings start? They’ve lost 9 of 10. Start thinking about the 2011 draft. Leave a Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
