Hickson plays double digits in the first 3 games of the series and goes 11-16 from the field in those 3 games. I'm not sure if Mike Brown is saving Varejao for the 2nd half but under no circumstances should Shaq have more minutes than him at this point. What is so hard about putting Varejao and Hickson in the game at the same time? Also Jamison is a complete scrub. You know how they talk about certain players who thrive in the playoff atmosphere, and those who disappear under the big lights? Jamison is the latter of that.
Cavs are only down 2 at half, but I still fear they are in trouble. I don't see Mo Williams having another half like that and Pierce wasn't on the court for a bazillion minutes in that 1st half. Cleveland better find a way to run the floor every possession (this means less Shaq Coach Brown) or there won't be a game 7. Oh and just to go OOAL if the Cavs don't win this series Lebron will be in a Bulls jersey next season with Phil Jackson coaching!
Kind of a summary of what we were saying, why play slow and old guys (Z and Shaq) against a team full of slow and old guys that is prone to regressing as the game comes to a close when you have athelticism like JJ rotting on the bench? He seemed like a much better counter punch to the Celtics attack.
The one factor that has really mattered as well is the fact that Jamison was dominated in this series. Just a bad matchup with the Celts for him.
