Despite not being a very competitive game last night it was a pretty entertaining one. And kudos to the crowd for going crazy whenever Dallas forced a shot clock violation.
The good defense last night began with guarding Ray Allen. His one good quarter was the Sonics only good quarter.
For some reason I thought this was a funny quote from Ray Allen.
"Dirk's a warrior," coach Avery Johnson said. "He plays injured. He doesn't just play in pain. He plays injured."
Josh Howard on winning player of the week and the all-star game:
"Just to be recognized, it'll be cool. And to make it to the All-Star game my fourth year, not too many players can do that."
"They pick the same people every year. It ain't no biggie to me, just as long as I can keep helping my team win. Not to take anything away from them, but a lot of players in the league deserve that chance."
Moe Ager has a good attitude about his time with the Fort Worth Flyers.
"It's definitely not as bad as everybody says it is. It's a perception thing. It's a developmental league. You go down there and get better. The competition was pretty good. Each team had at least three players signed to NBA teams. And everybody down there is fighting for a job. It makes everybody hungry."
Injury Update: Stackhouse might play on Thursday vs Indiana, but the way this has been going I'm not expecting it.
