D'antoni is a genius for benching Gallo in the 4th!
What a brilliant move to start the 4th with Gallo (the future) on the bench against ORL, in a close game.
Gallo was 4-5 from the 3-point line (5-7 overall).... He was the 2nd leading s corer.... Sure, let's sit him for the do-nothings (Duhon, Hughes, Harrington). The do-nothings were a combined 7-25 at this point (18 points).
Toss in Jeffries and Duhon.... NO wonder ORL extended the lead to double digits.
Gallo never played in the 4th against DEN.
This is so smart of coach. Gallo will be well rested for 2010.
