Doing things in 2’s.
After weeks of advance pics and video reviews, Dwight Howard finally debuted the adidas adiPower Howard 2 for last night’s Sunshine State rivalry match with the Heat. D12 got up for the occasion in his White/Bright Blue’s, putting up 25 and pulling down 24 as the mishmashed Magic overcame D Wade’s 33 for a 102-89 win. LeBron was quiet, well, for him anyway, with 17, 6, and 10 in his red and black LeBron 9’s.
Up in D.C., the Knicks had no Amar’e and Melo to carry the load. No problem. Jeremy Lin seized the opportunity to continue his prove-the-doubters wrong parade by juking, driving, floating, and flipping his way to 23 points, 4 boards, 10 assists, 1 steal and 1 block for a 107-93 win over the Wiz. He did his work in black and white Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 Lows. John Wall, whom Lin crossed for a drive and dunk, finished with 29 in a pair of whiteout Reebok Wall 2’s.
Other kicks highlights include Chris Paul pulling out blue CP3.V’s for a trip to Cleve, Jarrett Jack showcasing Hornets tinged Nike Zoom KD III iD’s, Joe Johnson trying out the Jordan Fly Wade, Jordan Hill balling in Nike Air Flight 89’s and more ahead in NBA Kicks…
