Lakers Hit 17 Triples; Jamison Scores 33


BRK @ ORL: The first start at C for Andray Blatche went well (14 PTS, 9 REB) and Gerald Wallace had his best game of the year (20 PTS including 5-of-6 from 3-point range) as the Nets rode a strong third quarter to victory. Joe Johnson led both teams in scoring with 22. Jameer Nelson (achilles) sat out, so E’Twaun Moore (13 PTS, 4 REB, 4 AST) started at PG and the Magic never really got going. Arron Afflalo scored just 5 points on 2-for-10 shooting, which suggests that Crash was pretty good at both ends of the floor.

POR @ BOS: With Jason Terry (17 PTS) starting at PG for Rajon Rondo (suspension) I was expecting Damian Lillard to run wild. No such luck, as Portland’s prize rookie was held to eight points. Wesley Matthews (5 PTS in 31 minutes) is playing with a very sore thumb and owners should consider benching him. Nicolas Batum (9 PTS) missed 9 of 11 FG attempts as the Blazers shot 34.8% and were blown out 56-33 by halftime. Jeff Green, who was questionable with a sore knee, added a spark off the Boston bench (19 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 4 STL, 1 BLK) in less than 23 minutes and Courtney Lee (10 PTS, 7 REB, 5 AST, 3 STL) did a nice job filling in for Rondo as a starter.

CLE @ ATL: We thought Jeff Teague (15 PTS, 7 AST, 6 STL) might dominate Jeremy Pargo, but the Cavs’ PG scored 22 of his own to inspire the upset road win. Al Horford (15 PTS, 11 REB, 5 AST) had quite the battle with Anderson Varejao (20 PTS, 18 REB) and Josh Smith (25 PTS, 8 REB, 3 BLK) had another good game, but the Hawks didn’t play well enough defensively and lost on a fluky late shot. Dion Waiters (21 PTS, 7 AST) hoisted up an airball from deep that Alonzo Gee (13) somehow turned into the decisive bucket.

UTA @ OKC: It wasn’t the easiest night for Mo Williams (13 PTS, 6 AST) to return, as Russell Westbrook was on fire. WB came awfully close to a quadruple double — 23 PTS, 13 REB, 8 AST, 7 STL — and Kevin Durant added 25 as the Thunder rolled to an easy W. Serge Ibaka blocked seven shots before fouling out, Kendrick Perkins (12 PTS, 6 REB, 5 AST, 3 BLK) was a beast and Kevin Martin added 19 off the bench. Utah’s surprise leading scorer was Enes Kanter (18 PTS, 7 REB) as Derrick Favors is hobbled by a sore foot. Marvin Williams (concussion) did not play, so offensively-challenged DeMarre Carroll got the start at SF.

DET @ MEM: This game went as expected, with Greg Monroe (17 PTS, 9 REB) giving Marc Gasol (17 PTS, 11 REB) quite a battle, but Brandon Knight (10 PTS, 6 TO) having trouble against Mike Conley (17 PTS, 5 AST, 6 STL). Rudy Gay had a game-high 18, but Zach Randolph was a non-factor for once. Tony Allen (groin) got the night off; his replacement Wayne Ellington shot just 1-for-9 but it didn’t matter.

  1. That game absolutely sucked balls (Yeah I said it). No way that Antawn (or the Lakers) ever repeat a performance like that. Speaking of Antawn, I think that’s the most pts he’s scored in like 5 yrs. SMH Ridiculous. I may be the oddsmaker/sportbooker for our fair group but I lost huge on that bet. Thank god Indiana won, at least. #Shenanigans
