I haven’t actually seen this game yet. I’m writing this from the airport in Fort Myers, Florida at around noon. On my way back from Thanksgiving at Grandma’s, y’all. So when this goes up I’ll be coming home from the airport or something. Just wanted to make sure you all got your precious immediate postgame post. Here’s a speculative recap:
What a game, you guys. The starters were awesome, but the bench kept it close. One rotation player was injured and will be out for three weeks or more. Glen Davis drew a charge. KG appears to have purchased Rosetta Stone software to prepare some Spanish profanities for Jose Calderon ahead of time. And Shaq…I mean, wow. He was something. What a wild ride.
I’ll be back with a full recap soon. But check it out: I figured out how to link to the ESPN box score even though it’s not up yet. I did that for you guys. See you in an hour or so.
UPDATE FROM BRIAN ROBB: I was going to update this mini-recap with some real analysis but Hayes was essentially spot on with this, minus the injury and Shaq taking a charge instead of Big Baby. Look for a full recap later this evening.
