The Goods On The Game, Setting Up Orlando
Looks like changes on both sides of the ledger tonight.
Sitting here in Casa Smith out in Hazelville, I'm hearing Jose's a no-go again and that Mickael Pietrus is getting the night off for Orlando, too.
Pietrus banged up his ribs in a game Sunday in Charlotte and coach Stan Van Gundy doesn't want to mess up his bench so J.J. Redick, who hasn't made a single basket all season, goes into the starting lineup. That lets Keith Bogans to continue his role coming off the Magic bench.
The absence of Calderon, again, gets Will Solomon into the starting lineup for the Raptors, alongside the now-usual dudes: Anthony Parker, Andrea Bargnani, Chris Bosh and Jermaine O'Neal.
Anyway, off to get the bon-bons and sodas ready for the big tilt.
Be back soonish.
