I gotta say this was one of the best games I've watched so far this year (League Pass rules, BTW). I just want to bring up some brief notes:
- Tayshaun Prince with the gamewinning THUNDERDUNK. I wish I had recorded that. It was SICK. - Rip Hamilton had 30 points on 5-18 shooting. How is THAT possible? 20-20 from the line. - Detroit only had 8 players available. Sheed,Rip and McDyess fouled out and they were down to 5 which means DARKO~! got to play. - He did little to nothing for my team, but picking up Antonio McDyess was a great move for Detroit provided he stays healthy. His rebounding and scoring payed dividends here.
- The Cats had numerous opportunities to win this but they turned the ball over and missed key free throws. Expansion team so it's understandable but this is fundamental stuff here - especially the free throws. - I've come to the conclusion that the Cats really aren't as bad as the 1-8 record says. They bust their asses and try very hard - but they're just not very good and can't close games out. They probably would be 4-5 right now had they won the games they were in a good position to win (including this one). It was 102-97 Cats with about 40 seconds when Sheed hit 2 CLUTCH 3s and sent the game to OT. - If Emeka Okafor hits that wide-open last second shot, people would be talking about how an expansion team beat the Champs. He looked pretty down after the fact. Poor guy.
Anyone else catch this game or the highlights?
