After a while I was getting tired of hearing the TNT announcers and watching a
constant shot of Nash on the screen. He is a great player, perhaps the best they
have. I think that he is fast becoming washed up, however. He is getting quite
old in NBA years and the TV actually showed him laying flat on the floor during
his down time. He was exercising his legs and looked uncomfortable. I think that
he might want to start looking for a retirement plan shortly. Good player, great
person but a TON of hype.
While containing Nash was a priority, we won this game with our defense on
Gortat. He had his way with us both times we played them this year. After we
blocked his shot 6 times, he no longer had any motivation to try any offense
inside. He even looked demoralized enough that his defense was lacking.
Jefferson took charge of the game when things were hanging in the balance.
Excellent game. Now pray that Denver loses both games to end the season because
I would much rather play OKC than San Antonio.
I have never seen Harris be as aggressive on defense as he was in this game.
Did not realize he was capable of that. Just makes his casual defense earlier
in the season seem even lazier. He is obviously more motivated now. Will be
interesting to see if he will be able to do anything to disrupt Tony Parker.
I'm not optimistic, but Devin did surprise me last night.
