What I Saw, where Pau was perfect

Only 4 games today, here’s a quick look at what happened:

Boston 101, Toronto 102: The Raptors escape with a win over the Celtics, with Bargnani leading the way, 29 points on 9-20, 2-6 and 9-13 shooting – although he had just 2 rebounds. Toronto edged Boston out on the boards though thanks to Reggie Evans’ 16, and Amir Johnson’s 11 off the bench (along with 17 points). Rajon Rondo missed the game with an injured hamstring and Nate Robinson got the start; he played well and finished with 22 on 8-14, 3-6 and 3-4.

Washington 110, Detroit 115 OT: Detroit eventually takes this one, they were more aggressive than the Wizards and made more free throws than Washington attempted (18-28 for DET, 9-15 for WAS). They also took care of the ball, just 9 turnovers while forcing Washington to commit 15. Rip Hamilton scored 27, tying his season-high (12 of those 27 came in the overtime period), but he’s averaging just 13.5 points and shooting 42% this season. Charlie-V came off the bench with a double-double, 25 points and 11 rebounds while making 4 of 6 threes.

JaVale McGee had a monstrous game for the Wiz, 20 points and 16 rebounds to go with 2 blocks, while Gilbert Arenas had 19 points and 16 assists playing the point in the absence of the injured John Wall.

New Orleans 75, Sacramento 71: Just a horrible-shooting, sloppy game of basketball for both teams. Sub-40 FG% for the game, with the Hornets winning despite shooting just 32%, courtesy of 15 offensive rebounds (12 for Sacto) and forcing 21 Kings turnovers (‘just’ 15 for the Hornets). CP had 14 assists and 5 steals, but only 9 points as he shot 2-12 from the floor. Donte Greene managed 15/10 for the Kings, but he needed 15 shots.

Golden State 89, L.A. Lakers 117: Pau Gasol was perfect in the game, 28 points on 10-10 from the floor and 8-8 at the foul line, and he added 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 blocks as L.A. was too much to handle for the Dubs in this one. Kobe added 20, Lamar 15/10 and Shannon Brown 17 off the bench as the Lakers shoot 56% while holding the Warriors to just 35%. 32 assists on 44 field goals, and that’ll work too for the Lakers.

Thanks guys.
