It looks like the Cav/Wizards series is going to be a physical series and I expect it to go at least 6 games. Already in the first quarter of the game we saw a fight and double technicals. It was a back and forth game and they had to play hard to the end.
Former Celtics Wally Szczerbiak and Delonte West started for the Cavs. I still really like Delonte and was happy to see him do well. He was very instrumental in the win. He finished with 16 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks and only 1 turnover. Down the stretch, he got a big rebound, gathered up a jump ball, drew the 6th foul on Arenas to foul him out, and hit 4 clutch free throws in the final 15 seconds to seal the win. He also played great defense on Arenas in the second half. Wally had 8 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists. I think his bone on bone knees are affecting his shooting.
The more I see and hear from Gilbert Arenas, the more I don't like him. I would love to see the Cavs knock the Wizards out in the first round. I really don't want to have to hear Arenas' mouth running for two series. But, whichever team comes out of this series is going to be tired because it is going to be a tough physical series if the first game tells us anything. Hopefully the Celtics will breeze through the first round and be fresh to face whichever team survives this series.
What a game between the Suns and Spurs! Double OT in the first game. How do you follow that up? I really don't like Manu Ginobili. He is such a flopper. It was too funny at one point when Ginobili was actually knocked down by a foul after flopping for the umpteenth time and didn't get the call, the announcers said something about when you flop all over the court all game, how are the refs to know when a fall is real? On one foul, 3 people all flopped at the same time and it didn't look like there was even a foul. Today's games didn't disappoint but I can't wait for the Celtics game.
