* So, at shootaround today, Nelson got a little irritated with answering questions about Brandan Wright’s minutes. He said “I’m tired of answering questions about that.”
Guess who started? Yup. Brandan Wright. Again, he had a poor start. Two fouls in two minutes. First guy off the bench? No, not Anthony Randolph. Nor Ronny Turiaf. But Rob Kurz.
* Mickael Pietrus is back, but he’s coming off the bench now. I have a feeling he’s going to have a big game. Anyway, I was thinking … Azubuike is pretty much playing MPs position (since Maggette is an entrenched starter). Who wouold you rather have, MP or Azubuike?
* Jackson said his hand is improving, but he still doesn’t know if it will be OK by the Boston game. He was out tonight. And he’s on the bench this game. Last game, he was in the locker room. I asked him why does he sometimes watch games in the locker room. He said he does when he doesn’t have a blazer. Really? Seems like he could buy a blazer.
He said the games are much better from the bench than the locker room. He watched Crawford’s 50 from the locker room, but was on the bench from Atlanta, often the first one to greet Marco.
