    He's become a turnover machine too.

    Rondo can't hit a three. Or shoot, really.

    I was thinking Rondo too, but he actually shoots around 24%. Wall is 7% from 3 the last two seasons. Seven percent... And it's always a wide open look.

    Ya, Wall needs to work on his game. He's a freak of nature in quickness and athleticism but he gets out of control too much and contributes to defenses compressing the paint since he's not a thread from the 3 or really even a 15 footer with consistency.

    they really should have traded him then. he's actually not that bad of a player. i can't imagine why they'd just shuffle him down to the end of the bench like that.

    Celtics :)

    man doc rivers ran one of his end of quarter/game/out of timeout plays to end the game. just a beautiful double screen (with pierce being the decoy then screener) and garnett with the ball at the top of the key. jeff green swings around the double screen and is wide open under the basket. game.

    edit: [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    I'm also happy it wasn't a low 60's scoring game that you'd expect from Indiana vs Boston defensive grind it out fest. it was like watching Manuel Marquez use his good defense to counter punch right back.

    I'm pissed that the lakers aren't doing to well against NO at the half. I've got money on them (1.5pt favorites). I know its the 2nd game of a back to back, but NO should be doable.

    edit: damn... whew... :thumbs-up: lakers covered... I think vegas must have lost a ton of money on this game.

    Hope you picked the over, Larry.

    KOBE!

    BTW - is it me, or are the wheels falling off Steve Nash? I know he's being neutralized in the new, stupid D'Antoni system, but a line of 5 points and 1 assist is never a good sign...
