ESPN Dallas-Boston and Heat - L.A. Clippers.
* In the 4th quarter, Nowitzki drove and scored right at Garnett several times. KG was playing tight defense too.
* Rondo is good at fastbreak layups. I hope Tyreke Evans can be as efficient someday.
* Garnett is so good at screens for Allen.
Miami - L.A. Clippers:
* Jordan only played a 29 minute game, instead of a 54 minute game. He didn't do anything in the first half. Reggie Evans played a lot better than Jordan in the 1st half and part of the 2nd.
* Paul didn't get going until late in the 2nd quarter either. He wasn't aggressive with drives. He said a few years ago that sometimes he doesn't get as aggressive when a lesser PG is guarding him. Chalmers and Norris Cole were guarding him today. But when Paul got going in the 3rd and 4th, he really got going. He has an awkward motion with his jumper, but he does use the screens well and can quickly change directions and fire off a jumper.
* Butler played great. He didn't have any defensive lapses on James, and scored 20 points on 6-11 shooting. He only had one bad shot.
* James was off on his FTs, going 9-17 from the foul line.
* Chalmers and Battier are going to hit a lot of killer 3's for Miami. Watch out for them.
* Clippers tried isolating a little too much in the first half, it just wasn't working.
* I don't think the Clippers defense was that good overall, and it was only decent in the 2nd half. Despite it saying that Miami shot 39.5%. Overall, Clippers defense has been poor this season, so far.
* I'm a believer in James new post game.
* Wade can still draw fouls, but if you can get him to take a FG, he's going to miss right now.
the clippers heat game was a good one. Good to see LBJ struggle at the line.
LBJ is sooooo average in the clutch.
That's an understatement

Bryant is a career 31% shooter in game-winning opportunities.
