While I pretend to know enough about basketball to recap games I watch, it is tough to pretend such a thing off a box score, some quotes, and a quarter's worth of Steve Holman. So a quick meandering of thoughts, points, quotes, and hearsay all in that beautiful bullet form.
Jeff Teague managed to make Mike Woodson smile. I have seen a non-sarcastic smile from Woody twice in my entire life. Either Teague did some great things or Woodson finally realized these games don't count.
- Continuing on the Teague train, from what my friend at the game said and Wake Forest after Wake Forest fan has told me, he goes from incredible to really bad about as fast any player you can imagine. I expect that to only be exasperated by his rookie status.
- Also, 8 free throw attempts for Jeff? I know he can hit the three, but we might want to put the kibosh on that until someone stops him from driving the ball.
- All I want from Teague is his confidence in tact by the time he has some handle of the offense and NBA game. After one preseason outing, good to go.
- A Joe Johnson that does not over push is a beautiful thing even in box score form. 7-10, 4 assists, 0 TOs.
Tough to complain or get overly excited about a meaningless game, but I will take some Jeff Teague style hope any day of the week. First hand accounts, thoughts on my thoughts, thoughts on Steve Holman, crushes on Jeff Teague, all welcome in the comments. Go Hawks!
