After a tight game between Bob Cousy and Robert Parish (which Cousy won), Sam Jones took the Ultimate 1-on-1 court and waxed Dino Radja with more than 80% of the vote. Jones will face off with Ray Allen in a few days.
Today, we stay in the White Bracket for a matchup between #11 overall Dennis Johnson and #22 Ed Macauley.
(11) Dennis Johnson
1-on-1 Advantage: Defense. DJ was a tremendous man-to-man defender. Could also score and finish at the rim. Before his Celtics days, he would regularly finish with dunks.
1-on-1 Disadvantage: Size, speed. At 6'4", 185, he can be susceptible to bigger players backing him down. He was also not the fastest guy on the court. Could be burned by a quick first step.
(22) Ed Macauley
1-on-1 Advantage: Scoring, height: At 6'8", Macauley can get his shot off against guards. And he, like many others in his day, had a pretty good hook shot.
1-on-1 Disadvantage: Speed, bulk: Not the quickest guy on the floor, he can be burned by a quicker player. He's also 185, which is skinny for 6'8". He can be muscled by a stronger player.
