Congratulations to our old friend Leon "The Show" Powe, who led the Cavs with 16 points in their win over the Pistons tonight. In the absence of Shaq and Big Z, Leon seems to have made some fantastic contributions, and I'm happy for the big fella.
That said, I'm not rooting for him when he faces The Green.
From Brian Windhorst's beat blog:
"Delonte West came down the lane, drew attention from Pistons defenders, and slipped a pass off to Leon Powe. With a clear lane to the basket, Powe pushed off his recovering left knee to take a step and then slammed down his first competitive dunk in nearly a year.
"My brother and my father keep calling me and asking 'can you give me a dunk?' said Powe, who led the Cavs (56-15) with a season-high 16 points.
"I told them I don't know if I'm ready for that yet. But I saw the opportunity so I went and tried it and I dunked it. It felt good off the leg, it didn't bother me afterwards so I was happy about that.""
