Okafor should be an all star at C if the Bobcats have a winning first half of the season. He is such an excellent defender and a double-double certainty every night....just needs to keep working on the free throws.
I really dont like having both Touche and Felton on the floor at the same time. If we're gonna go small, might as well play Carroll, Dudley, Herrmann, etc... Felton is more than capable of handling the ball.
Yes we were a bit shakey in the 4th but pulled it out in the end. More turn-overs especially from Felton and JRich than you'd like but can't complain as we have been able to win the close one's which we've more often than not (at least when I've watched) not done in the past.
All 4 of our key players has played well both games. Heart was in my mouth when Crash went down but thankfully looked like a minor knock.
I do like to see us getting out and running like Vincent said we would. I also liked seeing Dudley out there with the 2nd team. He didn't do much, but he just gets the game.
Q4 was painful, but I don't think the team knows what to do when up by double digits in the fourth. There was no clock bleeding and I think they got over confident. That being said, they still finished the deal.
Primoz is on Shaq to keep Mek in the game...and he did do a "fair" job. He did spaz totally out in the 4th quarter and gave up like 6 points, but in the end the good guys pulled it out. Touche' is in for his defense...the bench other than him (and Twigs somewhat) have really been struggling.
How's about Jason Richardson!!! The boy was raining 3s!!!
A great start...and now SOLE possession of 1st place in the Southeast!
