Moon man stylin'

Jamario Moon swore up and down that offence was nothing he was even thinking about, but given the opportunity at an open dunk from midcourt on Saturday night, Moon couldn't completely pass up the chance to show a little of his own style.

Moon went up with two hands and came down with legs splayed looking somewhat like a Michael Jordan tribute. Turns out it wasn't.

"Playing in the United Center, I had to bring back an MJ moment. I guess," Moon said before correcting himself. "MJ or Scottie (Pippen). That's who I pattern my game after so it may have been a Scottie Pippen dunk. I wouldn't say MJ. My teammates didn't like it. They told me after I should have given them something nasty. Right now I'm just trying to work my way in. I am not trying to do anything spectacular, just do the simple things and work may way in. Later on if those opportunities present themselves, I will make the most of them."

GUARD PLAY GETS NOTICED

Rarely does head coach Sam Mitchell pass up the opportunity to praise his guards' play and Saturday was no exception.

T.J. Ford and Jose Calderon combined for 23 asssists, just three turnovers and took just three shots between them.

"I tell our guys all the time. 'You have the best of both worlds. You have point guards who can score the basketball but would rather pass the basketball first.' Tonight was a perfect example. They knew the other guys were making shots and they got them the ball."

RAPS TRULY GLOBE-AL

Moon is one of three players in franchise history to play for the Harlem Globetrotters. Clifford Rozier and Oliver Miller both played with the Globetrotters after leaving Toronto.
