Ho hum, another night, another Blazer win. That makes 5 in a row, this time over the Houston Rockets, even surviving a monster game by Yao. The win moves the Blazers into third place in the Northwest Division, and .5 game behind the Warriors for the 8th playoff spot in the West. They currently have a higher winning percentage than the Clippers, Kings, and Hornets. That qualifies as a WATFO moment of the year right there. A couple box score musings from the game:
The return of Brandon Roy, 9 points on 4 of 6 shooting, 3 rebounds, 2 assists in 24 minutes and resumed his status as the Go To Guy late in the game. He hit the game winner with 19 seconds to play.
Z-bo, 24 & 13, funny how that's almost reached yawn status. He has to be an All Star this year.
Jarrett Jack, again almost a yawn at this point to see the point guard of this team go for 13 points, 6 assists, 4 boards, and just 1 turnover. I'll have a the whole team's PER check as I do every month next week, but Jack's is up to 16.47 in his first season as a starter in the NBA, with over 30% of his possessions ending with an assist. Outstanding.
That's all for now, and I will be out of town most of the next week so if you don't hear from The Other Guy in that time frame, I'll be back a week from today. Happy Festivus everyone.
