Tim Legler on Wednesday night during the Cavaliers-Nuggets game: "Damon Jones leads the league in words said per shot made. ... When he makes a shot, he lets you know."
Legler usually is in ESPN's studio, but he's well-suited to be a game analyst, as well. In that same game, he was pointing out how the Nuggets' Kenyon Martin kept imploring the bench to let him guard Zydrunas Ilgauskas one-on-one in the post, instead of sending over double teams that left the Cavs with open shots. After a couple of double teams resulted in Cleveland baskets, Martin got Ilgauskas to himself. Pushing and leaning on him, Martin forced the Cavs to settle for an ugly, half-hearted hook by Ilgauskas.
