I can't believe we lost that game. Up until the last few minutes, the title of this post was going to be "Where Did That Come From," referencing the huge first half. But no, the Wiz had to go and throw it away at the end, wasting a 70 point first half in the last few minutes, losing the game AND ruining what was sure to be an awesome blog post.
It was like we couldn't miss in the first half and all the Warriors could do was rim out. Then, as expected, the Warriors start hitting shots. The lead dwindles, and before you know it, DeShawn Stevenson is brickin' ugly layups and jackin' terrible 3's while Stephen Jackson saves the Warriors, hitting a clutch 3 off a rebounded free throw. How do you not box out there?
Why is Stevenson taking shots in the clutch? He obviously wasn't shooting well, going 5-18 in a little over 40 minutes? I understand why he took the last shot, but all those others? The better option is Nick Young with a spin move in the lane? I know we have lots of injuries, but either Eddie Jordan had nothin' left or no one was listening. They made soooo many mistakes at the end. They lost their hustle and as a result, they lost the game.
We need help. Like now.
On a happier note, Gil reiterated his comeback schedule during a half-time interview as well as mentioned this fantastic blog, stating he'd come back, "once he gets his swogger back".
Note: The latter half of the above statement is a complete and utter lie made up by the author because he felt like it. In fact, Gil only mentioned needing his trademark, "swagger," back, which in no way is a reference to me or this blog, as I had implied above.
