Monday, Monday. Can’t trust that day. It was almost a sweep for road teams, except for the Celtics, who finally ran out of gas in of all places, Charlotte.
The 15-point final margin suggests Miami won fairly easily, but this was a 3-point game until the final four minutes. The Canadian patrons relentlessly booed Chris Bosh (28 PTS, 5 REB, 1 BLK) — more knowledgeable fans would direct their wrath at GM Bryan Colangelo, who managed to get nothing at all for the perennial All-Star.
The trade fallout is still settling for the three teams involved. Jose Calderon is the most likely to appear in his new uniform this evening; media reports in Toronto suggest that Rudy Gay won’t arrive until late afternoon and will definitely not make his Raptors debut until Sunday.
Mark Cuban recently said the Mavs will be “open for business” at the trade deadline, which is less than 5 weeks away. What exactly did he mean by that?
