We were beating the Lakers all game when we played them and they went on a 17 point streak. You know who stepped up? Terry. We still lost but he made it close.
We went into overtime with New York. You know who stepped up? Dirk.
Like Silent Mav said, in the 4th defenders clamp down on Dirk and double or triple team usually when he actually gets the ball. Its happening even more so this year with our lack of scorers and shooters. Terry's taking advantage of that and driving in those open lanes as well hitting open shots thanks to Dirk's defenders never leaving him.
Still though I agree that Dirk should be more aggressive in the 4th. He settles for the fade away jumpers way too much at times.
Oh and Terry's one of my favorite players. He's been the best player for us for sure during the last 2 or 3 games. The whole season so far though? Cmon.
