What will we do now? Is that Wilson, a 6 point scorer with a minute left in the game, going to take that pivotal jumper...oh no! Oh no!
So, let's see, we just worked the ball around and a good jump shooter created a little space from the defender and takes a very makeable 15 footer. Swish.
No "star" insisting on earning his mega contract and so needing to take that shot, no role players too hesitant to shoot that last minute shot for fear of incurring the wrath of coach, team star or fans.
Really, there was no more pressure on Will on his last shot than on any other previous shot. Just take a good shot, that's all. What a concept.
And a little more on Will, he had 6 blocks(!). A small forward with the energy, timing and athletic ability to block 6 shots, wow.
If nothing else, just getting Will and Gallo has provided so much flexibility, no wonder GK feels like a creative kid with the largest container of Legos available to him.
And still, S Bayless intones, "They're going to miss Carmello in the playoffs." I guess meaning they'll do worse than the usual scenario of being trounced in the 1st round. What are they going to do, quit before the 1st round series starts?
