Loss vs Sacramento at home, 105-95. Back and forth game but we lost it in the end. Our offensive struggles continued and this time our defense was not that good. Hawes had a big game with 24 points, 9 rebounds, 4 blocks, 2 assists and 2 steals. Marion added 15 points, 4 rebounds and 1 block while Iguodala had 14 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds and 4 steals, but shot just 5 of 18 from the field. Haslem had 8 points, 11 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and block and Chalmers fouled out in 19 minutes.
Win vs Atlanta at home, 83-82. Ugly basketball. We had a 15-point lead at halftime and almost blew it. Hawes led us again, this time with 19 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks. Chalmers had 17 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal, while Marion added 14 points, 6 rebounds and 2 steals before fouling out in 34 minutes. Iguodala added 9 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds and 2 steals, and Haslem had 8 points, 8 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 assist and 1 block.
Besides having Gibson still out, now Speights goes down again. Still second in the East with 27 wins and 14 losses. Washington (19-20) comes to town next. We better improve our offense or we may have another tough game.
