From last night's action:
Donyell Marshall, Philadelphia: 0 points, 2 boards
Carl Landry, Houston: 6 points, 7 boards, WINS SERIES
Glen Davis, Boston: 23 points, 6 offensive boards, 10/18 FGs, 53 minutes
Rashard Lewis, Orlando: 29 points, 7 boards, 5 assists, WINS SERIES
And, of course,
Ray Allen, Boston: 51 points, 27 3's (well, it seemed like it), 59 minutes
Not to mention, Wally Szczerbiak and Delonte West, just chillin' at home waiting to get it on in the 2nd round. It's crazy how the players involved in that Ray Allen/Jeff Green trade have gone on to such stellar playoff success this year (West/Wally S. in Cleveland, Davis/Allen in Boston). Except, of course, the guy the Sonics got (Jeff Green), who is likely mowing his lawn today.
Long-term, the Sonix will be fine, and all those draft picks (and their relatively cheap salaries) will be fine, but, man, doesn't a team made up of Kevin Durant, Ray Allen, and Rashard Lewis sound kind of exciting? Sure, they'd give up 120 points a night, but exciting nonetheless ...
