The unofficial box score from tonight's game and PopcornMachine's GameFlow.
Well...at least Isaiah isn't leading our team. That would be about the only real positive from tonight's game. Damien Wilkins couldn't fill in as the #2 scorer, and we were unable to find ways to get Ray Allen open or get good looks for other players since he was constantly double teamed. This was a game where the absences of Rashard Lewis and Robert Swift were noticeable. Rashard because he is such a matchup nightmare for other teams to guard and he's a lethal #2 if Ray is doubled. He gives offensive options nobody else on the team is able to match. Robert Swift was sorely missed as Eddie Curry was doing his best All-Star impression. Roberts size and strength to go head to head with Curry in ways the rest of the guys on our roster were unable to do. Get well soon guys, we miss you!
As a minor surprise, we were only out rebounded by 6 in this game. I would have guessed that margin to be higher. While I wouldn't call it a good game for him, Earl Watson was solid other than his shooting.
