A Sweet Nothing We All Like

Wow. In many ways, that was one of the more entertaining games of the year. For those of you who missed it, the C's beat the Heat by 30, and it was not close from the end of the first quarter onward. KG and Ray were both absent, so it was a very gratifying win to watch - although it means little, saying that the C's are going nowhere without Allen and Garnett, and the Heat are absolutely terrible. I can't over-emphasize this enough - the Heat are probably the most disappointing team in recent memory. So as much as this evening should belong to Powe, Rondo, TA et al., it equally belongs to Miami's wretchedness.

Leon (25 and 11 tonight) has played so well as of late it is a wonder that he hardly played at all earlier in the season. One can't complain because the C's did better than fine without his presence, but we absolutely can complain now when Scalabrine steals his minutes and the C's lose a close game. Scal played 17 minutes tonight, and the only reason that is okay is because the game was extended garbage time for all of the second half. Scal has lost almost all confidence in his shot. Meanwhile Baby returned after a DNP-CD on Sunday to have 23 productive minutes. Basically everybody played well tonight. This was a nice treat, because given the injuries I could easily have seen the C's walking away with a loss - at least until I actually watched the Heat play for a quarter. Jesus...
