After resting up Monday night, I was planning to go to see the Knicks play the Magic at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night but the game was postponed due to an asbestos scare due to the on going construction of the latest renovation.
Wednesday night I went to the Prudential Center to see the Nets take on the Charlotte Bobcats.
The Nets appeared to be headed to another home victory but they blew a 10 point lead midway through the fourth quarter and they lost 85-83.
Boris Diaw lead all scorers with 24 points and Gerard Wallace poured in 20 to pace the Bobcats.
Devin Harris had 19 points while Brook Lopez added 17 in the losing effort. Rookie Derek Favors had 11 points.
After another night off Thursday, I went to the Garden Friday night where they deemed it safe to play.
The Knicks hosted the Washington Wizards who have John Wall, the number one pick in the draft who was making his NBA debut at the Garden.
As for the game, the Knicks won easily, 112-91.
The Knicks were lead by Toney Douglas who had 19 points. Amaure Stoudemire contributed 18 of his own in the win.
As for the Wizards, Andray Blatche lead them with 22 points and Gilbert Arenas had 19.
As for John Wall, he was erratic in his debut. He wound up scoring 13 points and he dished out 7 assists but he committed costly turnovers as the Wizards tried to back in the game. He's got a bright future. He's only 19 so in time he'll learn from his mistakes.
Saturday morning the King and I and our friend Frank went to Motown for the weekend.
Please stay tuned as I go into further detail regarding the getaway.
Thank you for reading.
