…sorry to steal a line from British philosophers Soul II Soul, but this game certainly had the feeling of a reality check to it. Especially the third quarter (which seems to be the Raps’ specialty), when Toronto was outscored 28-10.
In case you missed it, here are the
- Sweet pass at 0:14. Does Jose get an assist on that?
- Check out Landry Fields’ defence at 1:01. He’s got the right idea about how to defend Cousins; slowly back away and let a teammate take the foul.
- At 1:26, I can’t help but feel sorry for poor old Aaron “Fifty Shades” Gray. As he tries to stop Cousins, he looks a bit like a kid on the playground who’s hat has been taken by the bullies, and they’re playing “monkey in the middle” with it.
Oh well. The good times can only roll for so long. Things certainly won’t get easier with OKC in town this weekend.
You’re welcome, DeMarcus.
