What I Saw, where LeBron and Wade on the same team is ridiculous

9 games, here we go:

Orlando 91, Charlotte 88: Dwight and Rashard led the Magic with 22 apiece, and as hard at the Bobcats fought in this game, they threw it away with 16 turnovers; Orlando had just 7.

Cleveland 107, Washington 102: Mo Williams led the Cavs with 28 points, 10-19 from the floor, 1-6 from deep and 7-10 from the line. Boobie Gibson came off the bench to throw in 19 points on 7-11, 2-2, 3-3 shooting, and he continues to shoot the ball insanely well to start the season. For the Wizards, John Wall had 13 points and 10 assists; Thornton was good with 23; Blatche had 16/15; and JaVale McGee had 11 points, 10 boards and 3 blocks.

New Jersey 89, Miami 101: LeBron and Wade were clowning in this game. Do yourself a favour, go check out the highlights.

Houston 121, San Antonio 124 OT: The Rockets probably should have won this game, Courtney Lee missed two free-throws late that would have put them up 115-111, making it very hard for San Antonio to win. Instead, they lose it in the overtime, with Tony Parker taking over and finishing with 21 points and 14 assists. Ginobili hit the shot to force OT; he had 28, while Timmy added 22. RJ had a double-double with 19 points and 11 rebounds. For Houston, Kevin Martin led with 24 points on just 10 shots (7-10, 3-5, 7-8), and Aaron Brooks had 18 points (7-13, 2-4, 2-2), before needing to leave the game with a sprained ankle after just 17 minutes of action.

New Orleans 87, Milwaukee 81: The Hornets stay perfect; now 6-0 on the season as CP continues to do whatever he wants. 14 points, 9 boards and 6 assists on the game. David West added 25, 10-12 from the floor and 5-7 at the line. Belinelli had 14 and Ariza and Okafor added 11 apiece, putting all the New Orleans starters in double-figures. Bogut led the way for Milwaukee with 19 points and 14 boards.

Denver 103, Dallas 92: The Nuggets were hot from deep, 13-21 from three, with the Mavs making just 4-15. Dallas couldn’t take care of the ball, with 21 miscues to 12 for Denver. ‘Melo led the Nuggets with 27, nailing 4-4 triples; Terry had 26 and Dirk 23 for Dallas.

L.A. Clippers 107, Utah 109: The Clippers just couldn’t hold onto the ball, 22 turnovers to just 10 for the Jazz. They stayed in it because Utah shot just 41%, however. Deron Williams led the way with 30 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists (and it’s amazing that we don’t talk about him more when listing the best young points in the game), while Paul Millsap added 25 points and 13 points. For the Clips, Eric Gordon had 27/5/5, while Blake Griffin is ridiculous, 16 points and 17 rebounds. He is averaging 18.1 points and 11 rebounds for the year, which are All-Star numbers. Seriously.

Toronto 84, Portland 97: The Blazers held the Raptors to just 37% from the floor, and just 6% from deep (1-17), while making 45 and 25% themselves. Brandon Roy led with 26, LaMarcus Aldridge chipped in with 22 points and 10 boards, Nic Batum scored 20 (3-6 threes, it feels like it’s going in EVERY TIME he shoots from deep), while Camby had 16 rebounds and Miller had 13 assists. Not much to look toward for Toronto; I saw that Bargnani had a dunk, but it was probably a typo.

Memphis 100, Sacramento 91: Good bounce-back win for Memphis after letting that game slip away in Phoenix. Rudy Gay jump-shot his way to 32 points, 11-19 from the floor, 1-4 triples, and 9-9 at the stripe; he’s 4th in the league in scoring right now, 26.3 per. Zach Randolph added 20 points and 11 rebounds, but the bench contributed just 14 points. For Sacramento, Tyreke led the way with 30 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists, along with 4 steals, 12-20 from the floor to go with 1-3 threes and 5-7 free throws. It’s not inconceivable that we’ll be seeing a few Kings-Grizzlies match-ups in the playoffs in years to come.

Before I go, I link to this article on John Wall, a great read on how the rookie guard is finding his way in the league.

Thanks for reading.
