I decided that before we play a team I am going to do a segment where I will share a little recent content from the opposing team's blog. So that we can
know more than Matt Harpring learn about the current situation of the opposing team. Today we take a look at At The Hive Here's a few things:
The dichotomy in excellent and awful play among the starters was particularly noticeable: Anthony Davis struggled from the floor at 2 for 11 and a measly 6 points in his 32 minutes. I had the Warriors feed for this one; any time any person anywhere rants and raves about David Lee's defense, even if this person happens to be paid to generally commentate on and otherwise expound on the virtues of various Golden State Warriors, something has gone horribly awry.
In the backcourt, Greivis Vasquez and Eric Gordon had up and down performances. Vasquez's creativity (9 assists, 2 turnovers) was on display, but so too were multiple flailing, aimless forays into the paint that led to him tossing the ball vaguely in the direction of the rim at best. Gordon was off from the field (5 for 17), something we've become more than accustomed to, but while his free throw rate has dropped this year, he was able to get to the line 11 times. (And speaking of getting to the line, the final minute of the ballgame was probably the most perfect possible encapsulation of the career of Xavier Henry).
- The Times-Pic looks into Monty Williams' and the team's mentality with eight games left in a lost season: plenty of teaching still to do.
- Tom Benson is stepping away from three NFL committees to focus on other endeavors, including the New Orleans Pelicans.
- Jimmy Smith writes at the Times-Pic that Anthony Davis doesn't have enough time to come back and win Rookie of the Year; Jeff Zillgitt argues that he can still do just that.
[Author's Note: I added this because the folks at At The Hive have made some amazing headlines to Game Recaps in an attempt to take the edge of off a dismal season. Take a look.]
