All the threads lately seem to be about problems: coaching problems, player development problems, tv problems, cancers, trading, blah blah. That's all fine and good, but lets have a positive thread about our players for a change up.
How about that Magic game for our starting guards? Hendo doing a Crash impersonation with 24 points and 10 rebounds. When he actually becomes aggressive, his game opens up, from post ups, slashing, and pull up jumpers. It shows he has the ability, he just needs to tap into that mindset more often.
And Kemba with a 24 point, 7 assist, 4 rebound, 3 steal night. Most impressive was that 20 of those points came in the second half, and his clutch gene shined throughout the end of the game. That step back three over Vucevic had me jumping around, and he nailed several daggers from the elbows in the 4th to hold off the magic run.
But the best play to me was when he tipped that Afflalo pass with his pinky nail, then sped past Nelson like he was Diop heading to the vegetable aisle, corralled the ball, and hit the layup to stop the comeback when it hit only 2 points.
Whatever that magical "it" is, Kemba has it. They just have to be in games in the first place for it to work.
