Ball Don't Lie - NBA


Ball Don't Lie's Two-on-Two All-Star Tournament can see the light. (No idea what I'm talking about? Click here.) Only eight — count 'em, eight — teams remain as we begin round three. Here we go ...

Match-up: LeBron James and Zydrunus Ilgauskas vs. Rashard Lewis and Dwight Howard.

How the Cavaliers got here: Defeated the Wizards' Butler and Jamison (77%) and the Bulls' Rose and Deng (77%).
Last game's play-by-play, courtesy of "yoniekai": "Cavs win 11-5. Editors give Lebron 11 points, one rebound and one assist, becoming the first player since Raymond Lewis to score 11-1-1. But blogosphere posts protest that one cannot assist oneself. So NBA takes LBJ's one assist, and to top it off they remove LBJ's perfect percentage, counting that as one miss. "Irresponsible," says Mike Brown."

How the Magic got here: Defeated the Raptors' Calderon and Bosh (76%) and the Heat's Wade and Beasley (65%).
Game play-by-play, courtesy of "Dan": "Post entry pass to Howard over Wade's fully-extended arms. Drop step, Dunk. Lewis checks the ball to D-Wade. Post entry pass to Howard over Wade's fully-extended arms. Wade doubles post. Howard kicks it out to Lewis for a catch and shoot over Wade's fully-extended arms, swish. Rinse and repeat."

Hypothetical rules: Half-court, offense calls the fouls, "winners out" to eleven (by ones and twos, natch), and you've got to win by two. Also, no jeans allowed.

And if you're in a creative mood, leave us a short description of how you see this game unfolding. Who jumps out to the early lead? Who nails the game winner? Break it down, Marv.

Voting will remain open until late Friday night, MST.

POLLS CLOSED / WINNER: LeBron and Big Z with 52% of the vote.
