It seems like all those quotes about hustle and motor have finally got to Lavoy Allen. Dude went FULL VUCEVIC last night against the Charlotte Bobcats "frontcourt" to the tune of 14 points (on a long two-y 7-16 shooting) and 22 rebounds, 11 of which were offensive. Everyone was literally offended by his 11 offensive rebounds. He played 42 minutes, logged a +18 and I've gotten word that Doug Collins personally gave him a massage after the game.

Equally surprising is the run that Jeremy Pargo got in his first game as a Sixer. "Not Jannero" or "Maggie Not Jannero", if you prefer, played 29 minutes off the bench, supplanting Nick Young in the lineup a whole bunch. Jrue Holiday, as Doug wanted, played an awful lot off the ball while J-Pargs ran the point. He was quick, he was relentless, and he even took a terrible fadeaway contested long two -- welcome to the Sixers, Jeremy.

With 12 points on 9 shots to go with 6 assists and 4 hustle rebounds, we're all very impressed by Pargo. Okay now you can let his 10-day contract lapse so you can sign, like, Austin Freeman or something.
