Return of the Kardiac Kids
Well, the Mavericks didn't dispatch the Warriors last night as anticipated, and Golden State wasn't even tired when they showed up at the Ford Center: the Hornets opened up leads as wide as 15, but still found themselves behind by 1 with five minutes left. It's probably a good thing I missed this game; I don't know if my old heart could take this sort of thing. The Bees prevailed, 97-93, and it was a lot closer than that sounds.
Issues: the Third-Quarter Drought persists; the bench wasn't quite as effective this time around. The starters, though, shone, with all five in double figures and three pulling down double-doubles: Chris Paul dropped 22 and dished up 11 assists; David West picked up 16 points and 11 rebounds; Tyson Chandler scored 10 and grabbed 14 boards.
And who would have figured that one week into the season, there'd be only two undefeated teams and the Hornets would be one of them? Not me.
Thursday, it's a rematch, and this time it's on Golden State's court.Posted at 9:33 PM to Net Proceeds
