First Look: Monday, March 2
The ABC doubleheader Sunday saw both the current conference champs fall to teams who I called “has-beens” yesterday. Not only that, both were without their star point guard. Maybe, just maybe, there’s something left in the tank for the Suns and Pistons. Maybe.
Sunday’s best: In a losing effort, Kobe Bryant was easily the best, going off for 49 points and 11 rebounds. Also worth mentioning was opponent Matt Barnes who scored 26, and had 10 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals, and 5 threes.
Sunday’s worst: We’re gonna go with TJ Ford here. He was 2-12 from the field, scoring just 4 points with 4 assists in 29 minutes. Good news for him is that the Pacers still upset the Nuggets.
Keep an eye on: Joe Smith. He was bought out Sunday, and if he signs somewhere, he’ll likely have value. This is especially true if it’s Cleveland he goes too, with the Ben Wallace injury. Keep your eyes glued to see if it happens, and gladly scoop him up when it does.
What to watch for Monday: A Dallas/Oklahoma City rematch should be somewhat interesting, given the Thunder took the Mavs into OT just days ago and Jason Terry is back from injury. Also, LeBron James visits Dwyane Wade’s Heat. What are the chances one of them ends up in this article tomorrow?
