First Look: Saturday, February 28
Friday night saw the return of Stephon Marbury, who played somewhat well, the Magic fall to the Pistons, Oklahoma City nearly topple Dallas in Big D, and the West’s top two teams go down.
Friday’s best: Gotta go with The Diesel here. The Big Shaqtus had 45 points, 11 boards, a couple dimes, three steals, and a block on 20-25 shooting. Who says he can’t run?
Friday’s worst: Let’s go with Tony Parker here. He shot 3-16 from the field for 11 points. When Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili are out, Parker has to step up, and he has been for the most part lately. This was a stinker, and the reason the Spurs lost at home and were getting blown out of the water for most of the game.
Keep an eye on: Marbury. He had a decent game all things considered, scoring 8 in 12 minutes on 4-6 shooting. He also had two assists, a rebound, and a steal. He turned the ball over 3 times, but that’s to be expected for anyone playing their first game in any uniform. He may get more minutes and a 10-5 with a steal or so line isn’t out of the question from here on out.
What to watch for Saturday: Pretty boring day Saturday honestly. Oklahoma City takes on Memphis and the Clippers host the Bobcats in two lovely toilet bowl matchups. I guess the same can be said of the Bucks playing the Wizards. Oh well, a lovely NBA Saturday.
