I took a business partner from Australia to the game last night. It was his first ever basketball game. I spent the first quarter explaining the rules and at some point during the third quarter, He said " That number 24 guy is really good is he the Jazz' best player"? I replied "Tonight, he is".
scored a career high with 32 points and missed a triple double by 3 assists. To say that he was chomping at the bit was an understatement. He also hit on 10-11 free throws. If you missed the game you missed an amazing night by Millsap. I know it was against the Kings but the point guards weren't at their best last night so at times the offense was dead. Really there were stretches when the offense was lying on the floor.
broke out of his slump just liked I hoped he wouldn't
showed us again why he will be the rookie of the year by getting to the line 15 times. Stupid.
struggled last night so much so that Sloan finished of the Game with Gaines at the point who did ok, not good, but ok. I think 13 shots 24 minutes would be forcing a little bit.He did have some on ball steals that got the Jazz some easy buckets.
Andrei Kirilenko played circa 20o4 here is his box line.
Other than his free throw shooting, I would take that stat line anytime.
I don't know if they aired the Hot Rod Ceremony on T.V. but it was awesome and I think that Hot Rod was truly touched. On the Jumbotron they had his former partners give a little statement as well as John Stockton. I recorded the ceremony on my flip cam and should have it up by Monday if you missed it.
Great Game Great Result.
