Default Michael Grange with a "Zinger" in his blog today

Check out Grange's 3rd reason on why D12 won't beat the spread on tonight's "over/under" on offensive rebounds.

Everyone else in From Deep land can have the ‘over’. Go ahead. My reason for taking the under are as follows:

1. After throwing up all over themselves, the Raptors have a fairly good track record of cleaning up nicely. So two nights after giving up 18 offensive rebounds to Charlotte, I see a general tightening up by the Raps as they express their shame.

2. More minutes for Rasho Nesterovic with Bosh out. Watching Rasho defend Howard should be mandatory viewing for anyone who thinks that savvy and under-stated toughness (read: the willingness to take the odd elbow to the chops and/or get dunked on) are no match for outrageous athleticism. I mean, I’m like you: I’d rather have the outrageous athleticism – I was talking to an advance scout for the Magic who suggested Howard might be the most athletic (defined narrowly as speed, power, size – though he’s pretty co-ordinated too) person on earth. I can’t argue, really. Rasho is not that, but he’s heady and determined and relies on a fairly simple formula to defend Howard: meet him early in the possession to make it hard for Howard to get deep post position and then box him out almost to the point where he sacrifices getting the rebound as long as Howard doesn’t.

3. More minutes for Brezec. At the least in the six minutes it will take Primoz to pick up his six fouls, there’s a chance that Howard will be too busy giggling to be tearing down the rim.

We should put Joey on Howard. He can play center afterall.
