Roy didn't appear 100%

All I've been hearing is how badly LeBron outplayed Roy down the stretch last night.  Am I the only one who felt Roy wasn't anywhere near 100%?

Sure, Brandon isn't to LeBron's level.  Who is?  Not even Kobe Bryant--we saw that the other night.  But Roy is closer to LeBron than he appeared last night, IMO. Remember, two days earlier Brandon had beaten the Hawks practically single-handedly with a 103 degree temperature on a night when his teammates still seemed hung over from the road trip.  How long would it take you to recover from an exertion like that?  Then last night, because his nervous teammates couldn't throw it in the ocean, Roy had to play longer and harder during the first three quarters than he's used to--while LeBron was coasting.

Down the stretch, Roy appeared completely gassed to me.  So of course he got dominated at both ends by the best player in the NBA.  Not to worry; the Cavs will be in for a big surprise in the rematch game in Cleveland later this season.  Brandon's "supporting cast" (I hate that phrase, but it does apply) will be free of national t.v. jitters.  And LeBron & Co will encounter the real Brandon Roy.  IMO, the Blazers will wax 'em.
