I’m guessing Doc Rivers doesn’t read this blog, especially when we ponder why he isn’t using a bench player as good as Leon Powe, but I’m also guessing that Rivers is pretty happy he changed things up last night.
Here’s Powe’s line for the evening:
Playing time: 14:39
FG made: 6-7
FT made: 9-13
ABC also ran a halftime feature about Powe’s remarkable personal background. There are at least a few million people who are aware of Powe today who weren’t aware of him yesterday, and except for the portion of them who are Lakers fans, I think that’s a pretty good thing.
