There and Back Game Grades, Part 1

So, Kobe Bryant murdered the Suns. Again. So predictable… So… So… Predictable. However, they did let Shannon dunk. So who gets good grades, who gets bad grades? Here we go:

Marcin Gortat: A+
Gortat may have made his greatest case for All-Star consideration, as he outplayed Andrew Bynum scoring 21 points and grabbing 16 rebounds. He also destroyed Troy Murphy with a vicious dunk. The Polish Hammer at his best, ladies and gents

Steve Nash: A
Nash was not entirely dominant, but he did manage to hand out 17 dimes (turning the ball over a Jeremy Lin-like 7 times), while scoring 11 points. Just another day in the office for the Canadian.

Shannon Brown: B+
Shannon was solid, providing a spark in the 4th, starting a rally that never ended. As much as I hate to give him props… Well… Props, Shannon, props.

Markieff Morris: B+
Markieff stole the ball 3 times, blocked it twice and scored 14 points. All while Channing Frye was terrible. I know he struggles as a starter, but with the way Channing has been playing, I’d give it another shot.

Grant Hill: B
Grant did his best on Kobe, passed the ball well to reach 4 assists, and scored an efficient 8 points.

Jared Dudley: B-
The Junkyard Dog made some timely baskets, played some D, hustled… But it wasn’t enough. Too bad.

Michael Redd: C+
Offensively solid, defensively below par. A mediocre game for Redd

The Rest: F
Particularly Channing Frye. Absolutely no input out there whatsoever.
