Shooting Us to Death

Out of my way

I just had my first terrible game in quite a while. We were playing the Bucks in Milwaukee and I was 7-20 going into the last couple seconds of the game. I did have three rebounds, seven assists and three steals, but I also had three turnovers. We were down by one with under 10 seconds to go when I proved an old saying: there’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance. I was arrogant. Vince Carter was scoring really well – shooting 8-11 with 20 points – and probably should have gotten the ball, but I took the last shot anyway. I ended the game 7-21 and we lost.  Dammit

Too Much to HandleThis was the real story. Michael Redd scored 30 points on over 50% shooting, and we had no one to match up with him. I kept Brandon Jennings quiet, 4 points on 2-5 shooting with 6 turnovers, but Redd was just too hot to stop. Oh well. Can’t win ‘em all, I guess.
