Game of the YearPosted on February 28, 2014 by Ted Leonsis
We are now two games over
500 after winning what I thought was the best game of the year. 19 ties, 15
lead changes, triple OT. A disallowed game-winner at the buzzer at
the end of the second OT. Five players fouling out of the game. Great
plays in big moments by both teams. This game had everything.
And it was a huge
road win for us with Nene and Seraphin out with injury, and Toronto
looking for a season sweep over us in their house.
I was impressed by our
calm on the floor, and how we stuck to a system. We ran so many pick and
rolls that were successful last night in half court sets that I lost count.
Gortat was huge for us last night.
And I thought John Wall played a complete and dominant game. He has a real sense of confidence now, and is leading the team like a great player and an All-Star .
It was a shame that one team had to lose last night. We took a big step forwarded mentally I thought in closing that one out. That was a game we would have lost in the beginning of our schedule.Posted in: Sports
