The Big 3, Minus 3

Just… dammit. Bosh got hurt in our latest game, leaving a lineup of me, Mario Chalmers, Mike Miller, Kurt Thomas and John Francis. Wow, huh? I would complain more, but that lineup just helped put away a big, bad foe – the Lakers.

Of course I chipped in, too. In fact, I was pretty much at the center of everything. In the first half I orchestrated our offense and got my shots when I could, but I turned it on after Bosh got hurt, because our offense stagnated.

We won the game by 11 (66-55), and I finished with 30 points, 5 assists, 2 steals, 1 block and only one turnover on 57% shooting, hitting 2 of 5 from deep. Kobe got 20 in the first three quarters but when I guarded him, I shut him down. In the first 4 minutes of the fourth I threw a shutout on him. He got four more points when I was switched back to point guard and then sat with 2:28 to go, never to be needed again.

Wow, I was ready for a beating, but I didn’t think we’d be administering it – especially after Bosh went down. The Lakers only hit one three pointer the whole game, which helped. We also rebounded like monsters out there.

I’m kinda sad to be leaving this bunch.
