The only thing that could be better than the smack down we put on the Honey Bees would be getting some revenge on the McNuggets. The rivaly is renewed on Wednesday night and I have good feelings that the Jazz will make a better showing.
In honor of the beat down that Linas Kleiza put onthe Jazz, I offer the following player for player comparison of the Nuggies and the Peanut Gang
Linas Kleiza vs. Linus Van Pelt:
Advantage: Kleiza - Van Pelt would trip on his blanket too much.
Allen Iverson vs. Woodstock:
Advantage: Woodstock - Both are very small and very quick, but Iverson might get arrested at any point so Woodstock becomes more reliable.
Carmelo Anthony vs. Peppermint Patty:
Advantage: Push - Both are the best players on their team, but also the dumbest. Peppermint Patty thinks that the Beagle playing shortstop is a "Funny Looking Boy" and Anthony is a "Funny Looking Boy"
Kenyon Martin vs. Snoopy:
Advantage: Snoopy - Martin tries to be "Joe Cool", but Snoopy IS "Joe Cool". Plus Snoopy is more durable, has a better contract and comes through big in the clutch.
Marcus Camby vs. Lucy Van Pelt:
Advantage: Camby - Both are loud, bossy and wine when things don't go their way, but Camby can block shots and I don't see Van Pelt being able to do that.
George Karl vs. Charlie Brown:
Advantage: Push - The matchup here is purely physical as both are round and bald. Both try to lead their teams, but always seem to come up short.
The final tally is 2 for the Peanuts, 2 for the Nuggets and 2 ties. Seems fitting that this matchup would come down to a tie, both teams are merely good on paper. My prediction for the game is the Jazz will exact a portion of revenge and take a close game with more defense than we saw the last time they played. Final score will something like 105 - 99.
