Quote of the day
"I'll tell you next year." -- Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni, when asked if the team’s roster manipulations and subsequent big losses (e.g., 31 points in Cleveland on Monday) are worth it
One of these days – and the time is coming – Chris Paul will return to action, and Darren Collison will presumably have trouble finding playing time. But he’s not giving any reason for managers to bolt early, including last night’s 10 point, 15 assist, 5 rebound, 2 steal game against the Spurs. There is no set date for Paul’s return, but it should be in mid-March.
If you are working off an old NBA schedule, we’re approaching the rescheduled date for the Atlanta-Washington game that was snowed-out. This will give the Wizards an unusual stretch of 3-straight games (March 11-13) and 5 games in 6 days. For Atlanta, the extra game falls within a period when the original schedule had only one game in 7 days, so there’s no risk of overwork there.
