Just a little update
Okay, I hear it's cold back home but it's about 40 F here in Dallas and the locals are treating it like it's the end of the world. Me? Golf shirt and light jacket. It means something to be a hearty northerner.
But, as usual, I digress.
Just back from the shootaround and Shawn Marion wasn't there, back at the hotel dealing with "flu-like symptoms" was how they put it. Jay said with lots of rest and fluids (sounds like something a Grandmother would say, doesn't it?) Marion should be able to go tonight.
And Joey Graham, he of the wonky hamstring, is now "probable" for tonight, came through Saturday's light practice unscathed and he was just going to do some light work this morning.
Can you imagine if neither of them could go?
I guess they'd start Kapono with Calderon, Parker, Bosh and Bargnani and the bench would be Ukic, Banks, Voskuhl and O'Bryant.
Oh, and why the 9 p.m., 8 p.m. local, start? Blame the pucks.
Apparently the hockey team here has a game this afternoon against the Pittsburghs and that's why Mavs-Raptors has been pushed back.
No real explanation why the basketball couldn't get the early game with hockey going at night but I presume it's got to do with TV or some other entity that doesn't give a hoot about beat Grunts and their deadlines.
That's it for now, gotta go turn up the heat in the room.
