First-half observations: Sheed has built several houses in the first half with all his bricks. Remember the song "Rudie Can't Fail" by the Clash? I like this tune better: "Rudy Can't Jam." Glad to see Jarvis finally made a shot. Hunta still looking good. Amir looked lost to me in the first half. One thing I hope to find under the tree at Christmas: Tay's offensive game. I'm beginning to think the NBA's structured offense is restricting Darko's free-wheeling game.
