Gay Can Play

Rudy Gay indicated prior to the Jim Calhoun Charity All-Star Game that he hadn't been cleared to play (by the Memphis Grizzlies, we're assuming). But after sitting out the first half, Gay played in the latter. Boy, did he ever.

Here's one particularly impressive sequence, in which Gay fiddles, diddles, steps back and hits a 3-pointer. After a defensive stop, Khalid El-Amin lofts up an alley-oop pass and Gay glides in for the jam, bringing the crowd of about 6,500 to its feet.

Update: White Team pulls off a 126-118 victory over the Blue Team. Ray Allen was named game MVP with 20 points, though is teammate, Ed Nelson, might have been robbed. Nelson poured in 22 and grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds!

Charlie Villanueva led all scorers with 26. El-Amin had 16 points and five assists, Rashad Anderson netted 13, Stanley Robinson 14 and Jeff Adrien 10. Jerome Dyson had 18, Butler 14 and Kevin Ollie 13 for the White Team.

Off to hit the blackjack tables. See ya ...
