    Thanks clutch.

    Just an interesting observing, but that was absolutely amazing defence down the stretch.

    Two of our 3 apparent worse offensive players, Shane and Lowry, were absolutely clutch down the stretch. Battier was unstoppable on offence, and the Lowry was absolutely solid on defence. When Scola flopped on Odom's bump, Lowry made a crucial switch to guard Odom then went immediately back to Fisher, forcing Fisher to force a tough shot as the clock went down.

    And twice, Lowry went straight for Battier for the 3 point shot.

    It just seems like good defence is finally paying off. We may not win every game, but as of now we're actually starting to win games with tough defence.

    Thanks. That was a fun game. The final couple of minutes were surreal. It got me excited, and temporarily helped me forget how much this team has sucked....and their current record.

    Oh well, always GREAT to beat the Lakers!

    He looked like a basketball player today. On other nights it looks like he is trying to learn how to play basketball.

    battier pointing out to lowry where to set up on that first three is an example of what doesn't show up in the boxscore...dont know it that was a mental lapse on Lowry's part or a change on the fly by battier, but that's why a "young" team still needs him...

    Two Shane Battier highlight videos in one week. What are the odds?

    That play where Battier gets fouled on the three-point attempt was really interesting, where Lowry hands off the ball to Battier while both players are on the move. A pretty creative way to get Battier open for the shot.
