The Goods On The Game, Vol. 25, pre-game edition
You know how excited Nathan Jawai is to be able to work out? He couldn' t come down and talk to the grunts before the game because he was up in the practice gym with Eric Hughes and Keith D'Amelio -- working out.
Whadda guy. And, no, he's not dressing for the game. Jake Voskuhl is, though, with Hassan Adams moving to the inactive list again.
Little gamemanship before the game here. Visiting coaches usually give their starters to the official scorer about 90 minutes to tip, hardly ever later than 30 minutes before but Dallas's Rick Carlisle kept his under wraps until the last possible minute, which by rule is 15 minutes to tip.

That's got you caught up. Be back once we start.
