First Look: Wednesday, February 11

Tonight saw the Cavaliers drop a heartbreaker on some interesting calls at the end and Detroit fall again.  Besides that, not too many surprises beside a few near-trip-doubs.  Of course, if you happen to be the best player on planet earth and playing the Knicks, you never when a true triple-double will turn into one of those.  Sigh.  At least David Stern made things right today by putting Mo Williams in the All-Star Game Sunday for the injured Chris Bosh.  Cavs fans, you can be seated.

Tuesday’s best:  It could be LeBron James and his 47-7-4 and 4 threes, or Timmy Duncan and his 27-9-8 with 4 blocks, but no.  Why?  We see this all the time.  But Russel Westbook?  Not so much.  All he did Tuesday was go off for 17-9-7 and 2 steals.  Not only that, his team played the Lakers very well in Lala Land.  That’s impressive, especially when it’s his second game like that in a row.  Imagine what this team can be like with just one more piece.

Tuesday’s worst: Marvin Williams: 5 points, 5 rebounds, and 2-10 shooting in nearly 30 minutes.  Just when he put together a few really nice games.  Man.

Keep an eye on: Javaris Crittenton.  Holy smokes.  Only 7 points, but he also had 7 boards and 7 dimes.  But the big thing is, he played 25 minutes.  The Wiz starter, Mike James: 19.  May not be long before we see Crittenton starting, especially when James throws up clunkers like tonight.

What to watch for tomorrow: There’s a heavyweight battle in Orlando involving the Magic and Nuggets.  Should be a great game.  Also Phoenix is in Cleveland (is Amare Stoudemire auditioning?).  And it could be a blowout, but the Thunder travel to Portland in the battle of “Teams That Will Be Studly in Two or Three Years.”
