Doing Lines: Luol Deng Comes Out of Hiding

Every night there are some stupendous, silly, stupid, or downright outlandish individual lines from around the lig. Doing Lines lets you know which one tops the list.

Thursday night we found out that the Cavs and LeBron James aren't invincible. Their Kryptonite: Delonte West's broken wrist and Luol Deng. The second rated player from LeBron's 2003 high school class scored 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds in 40 minutes of play. Not numbers that knock you out of your seat. But considering Deng has been playing like a wet nap the entire year, I gotta give him props. Especially since, you know, he was playing against that locomotive in disguise we call LeBron James.

Roy and Aldridge Provide the Medicine:
Seriously Blazer fans, I really wouldn't be too caught up on your cap space (or lack there of...LOL). Have you seen Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge play? Thursday night Roy finished with 29 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists, while Aldridge chipped in 20 points and 6 rebounds. They just have to figure out a way to get Greg Oden going. It took Andrew Bynum about two full seasons before he could really provide the Lakers with anything, so that might be the time line. But be happy what with you've got Blazers fans.

Thanks For Ruining Our Guide Shaq:Steve Nash had 20 points, 7 rebounds and 14 assists Thursday night in their overtime loss to the Nuggets. Great line by Nash, but it's obvious that this team needs Shaquille O'neal to win. Their philosophy has changed so much, that when he sits down, it's a big loss for them. I do understand and believe in what they are doing by resting the Big Phoenix. I mean, he's been killing it of late. But let's see if it pays off in the playoffs.
