- Perk went for a career high of 25 points, with 8 boards to boot. Krep did most of his damage in the first half, putting up 17 and 4 and in first 2 frames. Kendrick was the beneficiary of a number of nice dimes from Rondo, but he also got a few of those buckets on his own too.
- Rajon had 10 assists at the half and finished with 15, to go with 5 board, 4 steals, 4 points and only 1 turnover. The turnover was unforced too, he just took his eye off a pass. I think our pal RR should start looking into flights to Phoenix in mid-February. Book them soon Rajon, you'll get cheaper fares.
- Ray also had 27. Really a quiet 27. I was surprised when Mike mentioned his total was so high. He's so smooth.
- TA had a wonderful windmill dunk. All we needed was the post-dunk blackout session from TA, and it would have been just like old times.
- For discussion. Would you rather have Leon or Noah on the team? I think this is an easy choice.
- Another big, early first unit lead was blown by the second unit. It is good to know that this team can still get better, but its also starting to frustrate me that the first team has to bail out the second team frequently. This game should have been a 30 point blowout at the half, not a 2 point lead.
- Again this game screams for nicknames for Rajon and Perk. We talked about it here earlier in the week. My tops picks from that thread after the jump.
My picks for best ideas so far from the thread.
Pondo | Prondo | RORK | Fast and Furious
and a few suggestions...Swatman & Rondin or Hunter, Gatherer (that's a chat room special). Obviously both are quite lame.
