China update: Josh Boone does well (twice again)


Two games (Dec. 28 & 30) were played since the last China update and Josh Boone put up some impressive numbers. Can any team in the NBA use a big at vet's minimum who will provide defense and rebounding?

DECEMBER 28:

The Josh Boone-J.R. Smith team lost, 117-95. There are no other quality players on the team besides these two, and J.R. had only 24 points, 1-5 on threes. Boone had the monster game of the night: 36 points (17-26 fg, the usually awful 2-9 ft). 19 rebounds, 1 block.

DECEMBER 30:

A 97-92 win over the Aaron Brooks team. Josh Boone had another monster game of 29 points (10-15 fg, 9-15 ft), 15 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 blocks, 1 steal. J.R. Smith had an average game of 27 points.

OTHERS IN CHINA:

The other team that interests me is the Wilson Chandler-Peter John Ramos team. In the a 118-112 victory on December 28th over Stephon Marbury's team, Chandler had 44 points, 18 rebounds, 4 assists, two steals, and one block. Peter John Ramos (the 7'4" fellow) had 26 points and 14 points, but no blocks.

On December 30, the team won a 115-85 blowout. Wilson Chandler had 22 points and 9 rebounds in 24 minutes. Peter John Ramos played 35 minutes, with 20 points (none from the line), 10 rebounds and just one block. I just don't know how he'll do in the NBA if he's not getting to the foul line and not getting blocks in China.

SUMMARY:

J.R. Smith (unrestricted) and WIlson Chandler (restricted) are playing as we expected them to play. A scoring small forward like Chandler could really help the Nets.

Josh Boone continues to prove that he belongs back in the NBA, at least as a backup big.
