Notes on a Box Score

Missed the game tonight, but looking at the box score, I got a few thoughts:

1) It looks like I might owe Deng an apology for ripping on his management-favoring reading habits. I think I'll hold off though until we find out who moves whose cheese in his next battle against Tayshaun.

2) Whoa. Seventeen minutes for Kirk? Four for Ty???!!! A win's a win, I guess, and, hell, Du's been better than El Capitan, butI don't know how I feel about this.

3) I caught some of the Game Cast in the 4th, and did my eyes deceive me or did Noah hit a pretty big 20-foot jumper late in the game? I guess the team played better when he came in, but only two rebounds? Whatup with that?

I'd be interested in the thought of people who, y'know, actually saw this game.

Noah did hit a big jumper, and like a 15 footer at that. Noce was getting all the boards in the 4th, so Noah was fine on the boards, a bit foul prone though.

Du played great, Kirk needs to be taken out behind the barn and put out of his misery at this point.

I missed the first quarter, so didn't see Ty.

Whatever, we'll take a road win any way we can get one.

Anyone else see Kirk's face [from the bench] after Noah took and made the big bucket in the 4th? Pretty priceless combination of terror and joy. More on the side of terror.

Least encouraging win ever.

Noah looked pretty good in the 4th. Banged on Gerald Wallace for a layup and nailed that jumper at the top of the key. He was right there for all the boards, but other players grabbed them first. Played with 5 fouls for the last 4 minutes or so.
