Didn't get around to watching the entire game until this evening (thanks tivo).
I have to say I was very impressed with the play of our perimeter players. Kobe was great. Kobe was great as usual, I really liked that steal he had against English which turned into a fast break slam.
Wade looked surprisingly good out there. He has put in some work on his J, ended up 7-10 FGs. That fast break dunk of his was the second best play of the night.
Paul and Williams are maturing at a rapid rate right before our eyes. Both had a jaw dropping, cross over layup at the end of the 3rd. If they continue at this rate, their minutes will really keep Kidd fresh and he'll be able to keep his legs. The two PG unit with both of them on the floor really worked well. I'm looking forward to seeing how successful it is down the road.
The closer 3 point line really makes things too easy for Redd. He couldn't miss from deep. He made all but two of his 8 attempts. Considering we don't have a lot of shooters, he's going to play a HUGE role in our success this summer and I think he'll end up getting a lot of playing time off the bench.
I didn't think our bigs looked good. Melo was the only one who really dominated against Canada's weak frontcourt. He got more easy dunks and second chance buckets than I can count.
Boozer didn't look bad, he had a nice stretch for 90 seconds or so in the 4th where he got that block and then a hook/J on the other end.
Dwight had a couple nice jams, including that alley from CP3. But he should be getting more than 7 - 6 - 3 against those scrubs, especially with Kidd, CP3, and Deron lobbing him passes.
Bosh didn't do much outside of providing us with the highlight finish of the game. That full court heave from Kidd to Melo who shoveled it back to Bosh for the monster jam was a thing of beauty.
The quietest player was Prince. I forgot he was out there on the court most of the time. He's probably going to lose most of his minutes when Bron returns.
