Inside the Paint: Opening Night

Via @cjzero
This most likely won't be a daily feature or a weekly feature. More like whenever I feel like it feature. But when these posts do appear they'll be recaps of the most important basketball games of the night. (Home teams are to the right)

Boston 107, Miami 120: The Celtics shot 50% from the field and 46% behind the arc and still lost by by 13 points. I didn't bye into the hype that Miami could win 70 games before the year but when they beat Boston by 13 points when a putrid Celtics offense is shooting 50% from the field, I gotta believe they're going to win 70 games.
Lebron's hairline is disappearing faster than him in the 2010 Finals. 
Dallas 99, Los Angeles 91: Lakers might have improved their starting lineup but woof that bench. When you have the likes of Jordan Hill and Steve Blake coming into the game as relief, you might have some problems. As for Dallas they looked pretty good despite not having Dirk receiving a well balanced scoring attack from their starters and bench.
Nice foul Dwight 
Washington 84, Cleveland 94: The Wizards give me hope the Sacramento Kings won't be the worst team in the league. The Wizards didn't even break 40 points for the first half and needed a late push just to make the final score respectable. A.J. Price who is filling in for John Wall went 2-for-13 from the field and 2-for-9 from behind the arc in 29 minutes of play. Woof. The Wizards shooting numbers a team on the night, 35% FG, 25% 3Pt, and 60% FT. Yeah you're not going to win many games with those kind of numbers. Kyrie Irving lead all scorers with 29 points and Cavs rookie Dion Waiters looked good in his debut.

  1. Lebron should quit fooling himself and shave the rest of his head. That's more embarrassing than Karl Malone sticking with his hair despite it going Tony Kornhiser on him.
