Re: Kings@Blazers game thread
this was a great win, and this team is playing their best basketball of the season! this was a must-win imo to followup on friday's performance. they're rolling right now and the reason why is because they're focusing on each team and taking it game-by-game instead. Ron Artest came up big late, and the Kings have not been behind a single point this weekend, including friday.
Why We Won:
Free Throw Shooting: They got to the line and took advantage of it, they shot 21 of 22. they were all important.
Valuing the Basketball: they had 21 assists and only 9 turnovers. taking care of the ball is extremely important when you're on the road on a back-to-back. points in the paint also helped balance what we outrebounded by.
Great Games By:
Kevin Martin: 11 of 19 shooting, 33 points he was fantastic tonight and picked up the slack for Mike Bibby. what i liked more about his game was the 6 assists. made all his free throws.
Ron Artest: shot 10 of 16 from the floor for 23 points, only forced it once. had 9 rebounds, and made all the big shots down the stretch, he stepped it up.
btw...Mike Bibby hurt something, whether it was his wrist or shoulder...but it might have effected his game, did not shoot well at all, we'll have to keep our eye on that.
