Leon Huge Again

leon poweThe Minnesota Timberwolves have played the Celtics twice… and the total combined difference in both games has been Celtics +3.  Leon Powe was HUGE… again… in this 88-86 win.

Leon had 14 points and 7 rebounds until about 1 second left in the game.  That’s when he grabbed his 8th board (off a Ray Allen miss.. which should have been a foul) and scored his 15th and 16th points on the putback. 

An interesting note on that final play.  Ray drove to the hoop and had 2 TWolves there to challenge him.  He made the steal at the TWolves 3 point line and dribbled all the way down the floor himself.  Yet amazingly… all 4 of his teammates were there to rebound the miss… and no other TWolves showed up until Leon had already put the ball up.  Total lack of hustle on their part. 

Box Score  |  Recap 

One note:  Kendrick Perkins left the game with what appears to be a strained shoulder.   They didn’t say anything about it being dislocated or separated…. and the play certainly didn’t seem to be the kind of play where those injuries could happen.  However, don’t be shocked if Perk misses Sunday’s San Antonio game.
