Leon Continues to Show up In Preseason
Leon Powe keeps showing improvement in every game he plays. I know it's just preseason but he is becoming more confident with every shot and every defensive stop. In tonight's 90-86 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Leon scored another team high 17 points including a game saving block in the final seconds. Even though it is preseason, making a big play at the end of the game is something that builds your confidence for the next time your in the situation.
Leon's building quite an impressive resume for end of the game plays. At this point I don't know if I'd rather have Larry Bird or Leon Powe at the end of the game :-)
Leon can spark this team on any given night and I think the Celtics know that now. I expect Leon to be the first guy off the bench this season and to see plenty of minutes.
