AMAZING! It seems the team can get itself up and motivated to play an early Sunday afternoon game.... as long as the opponent is a good team?
This was such a huge win for so many reasons.
1) Once again the team thrives in the 4th. It doesn't falter or fold. And it did this against a quality team, not a sub .500 squad! It had plenty of opps to fade, but the team perservered! AMAR'E picks up his 5th foul and sits with 10:40 to play. The team fell behind at one point. Then the see-saw back and forth, then we pull away only to have Billups tie it with a 3-pointer. STILL, we keep making plays!
2) A COMPLETE TEAM VICTORY. Another 30-point performance from STAT. 19 and 17 from Felton. 27 & 7 from Chandler. Fields with 18 & 9. Gallo with 16 but draws the charge that wins it. EVERYONE made plays, everyone chipped in when the game was winding down. Douglas with 13 off the bench. Turiaf some stupid plays, but he battled and brought toughness!
3) THE CRWOD WAS ROCKING. You think Carmelo noticed that? Come on Anthony. You see CC and the stars sitting courtside. You see the good young team we have, the duo of Felton-STAT, and did you get a whiff of that atmosphere. BRING IT!
13-1 the last 14 games. 16-9 on the season.
NO MORAL VICTORIES today baby.... Just a W!
My biggest fear was going 9-3, but hearing about how tough we played. No we play with confidence, and house money Wed & Fri. Just beat BOS or MIA and we are off and running.
As long as Felton-Stat are healthy.... We are a playoof team.
Dare we dream of a 4-6 seed? Get ATL or something in the first round?
