It’s a shame a defensive specialist hit a game winner like that with no fans in the building. I wonder how many game winners Tony Allen and Shane Battier or even Iguodala have/had in their careers. I may have to google that for myself.
We as basketball and hockey fans miss the sheer adrenal rush of the crowd at a great game. It’s like a drug. It really is.
Beautiful read by Al Horford on the play BTW. It was like an RPO (run-pass-option) in football. He sucked Lu’s man towards the middle then made the perfect pass for a catch and shoot.
It may not get any better than this for the Thunder this season so I better embellish the play as much as possible. Maybe blog about it thru next Tuesday so I have something Thunder relevant to blog about on here.
Should be a really great college game tonight with the Buckeyes at Michigan State. Tommy Izzo’s team needs this one in a big way for their resume. Could be a play in game of sorts for them.
I’m going to put Dort’s shot up again just because the contrarian Justin from the abyss of nothingness… A.K.A. as the Daily Thunder messageboard has been so hard on Lu Dort…no matter what the kid does.
