Great play on the win streak. Hes put the team on his back scoring wise. We needed this. THe only thing that concerns me is hes playing a heavy load of minutes. But were catching our stride 15 games about .500. 1/2 a game back from Houston. Only 3 from San Antonio and our schedule after Dallas is not too back.
