Melo drop 49 against the Wizards

Allen Iverson admitted that this was one of his easiest games ever. “I was out there watching,” Iverson said after the Nuggets beat the Wizards last night 111-100 last night.

He had Carmelo Anthony to thank for the night off. Carmelo took his team on his shoulders last night and was all over the Wizards in the process. He finished the game with 49 points and he left the Wizards Coach Eddie Jordan so frustrated that he decided to double and triple team him in the final minutes of the game.

“I thought it was very classless to close the game out,” Jordan said. “I have my opinion. I can say what I want to say. That’s what I thought it was.”

Anthony took it all in stride though. He didn’t feel that they disrespected anyone and that he also said that he felt that none of the Wizards players could guard him one on one, which was true last night.

Kevin Garnett comes back home

Even though Kevin Garnett couldn’t play last night, his former hometown fans showed him a lot of love when he made his first trip back to Minnesota since being traded to the Celtics last summer. They gave him a standing ovation and signs thanking KG for all his hard work could be seen all over the stadium.

The main story of the game was not Kevin Garnett’s return though. Surprisingly enough, this was a close game between the team with the best record in the league and the team with the worst record in the western conference. It came down to the wire but with some last second heroics by the Celtics they won 88-86.

The Timberwolves had the ball with the score tied 86-86 with 28 seconds left. Marko Jaric missed a 3-pointer and teammate Craig Smith rebounded the ball and tried to kick it back out.

But Ray Allen stepped in front and stole the pass and raced the other way with the clock ticking down. A frantic scramble under the basket ended with Powe putting back a miss just before the buzzer sounded. Crazy.

Lakers bonding nicely

Kobe Bryant and newly acquired Pau Gasol are starting to play some good ball. Last night was Pau’s third game with the Lakers but he ran the pick and roll so effectively with Kobe last night, you would’ve thought they’d been playing together for years.

Kobe finished with 36 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists while Gasol complimented that with 30 points and 9 rebounds. That chemistry lifted the Lakers past the Magic in Orlando last night 117-113.

This is the kind of help that Kobe has been waiting for, for a long time. We are seeing a very happy Kobe right now.
