01/09 Afternoon Minute: Vote For Boobie

with 2 comments

OK, I’m pretty sure that there is no way to really “vote” for this, but I think we as Clevelanders need to start lobbying for Daniel Gibson to be a part of this year’s three-point contest.  And yes, sinking five more treys last night helps the arguement a bit.  But so do the numbers.

While Rashard Lewis and Jason Richardson duke it out at the top with 95 threes (each) made on the season, Gibson is in third place all by himself with 81, ahead of typical sharpshooters like Mike Miller (72), Ray Allen (71) and Steve Nash (66).

01/09 Morning Minute: Six of Seven and Blocking in Hawaii

with one comment

While LeBron James’ fourth quarter average went up a bit against Toronto, last night may have brought it back down – but this is a good thing.  James was able to watch the fourth quarter from the bench as the Cavaliers rolled over the Seattle Supersonics 95-79.

James finished with 22 points, but it was his teammates that deserve the credit in this one.  Sasha Pavlovic finally woke up during his 22 minutes of play, finishing with 13 points – his first double-digit game since December 11th.  And he’s the starting shooting guard, people.  Boobie Gibson knocked down five three-balls (Got it! – Tait), Larry Hughes actually wasn’t that bad (4-11, nine points, three steals) and Andy Varejao finished off the solid night with 14 points and nine rebounds of his own.  Well done, boys.

This is six wins in the last seven games, placing Cleveland above .500 for the first time in quite a while.  The next three contests (at Atlanta, home against Charlotte, at Memphis) are very winnable.  I would love to have nine of ten games in the “W” column before heading to San Antonio to face the Spurs.

And the final Cavs note, this piece from the Globe and Mail is worth a look as it discusses LBJ’s hecklers from this past weekend.  Best line of the article:

“She’s free to do what she wants,” [Raptors forward Chris] Bosh said of his No. 1 fan. “But I said, ‘Don’t talk to LeBron any more.’
