There aren't any boxscores to share, but both Anthony Morrow and Damion James competed this weekend in benefit games. Morrow played in the Louis Williams Charity Pro-Am at Atlanta Metro College while James played in the John Lucas Houston Lockout Celebrity Game at the University of Houston's Delmar Field House.
Morrow, as he has in several celebrity games, was among the top scorers. A Hawks fansite reported, "Anthony Morrow had the hot hand early as he hit shots from all over the gym for New ATL." He finished with 38 points. Williams hit for 40 and the game's biggest name, Allen Iverson, matched Morrow with 38. Dwight Howard coached Morrow's team.
No word on how much James scored in the Houston event, since no individual stats were kept. The 6'8" Texas native has been picking up his pick-up game schedule in recent weeks, being recruited by his old friend, Kevin Durant.
