$2 million Chuck Hayes neutralizing $100 million Amare Stodemire. Classic effort.
That settles it.
Lowry is da man. Clutch said so.
sorry, had to rag on you some more Dada.
Great to see Lowry and Miller playing like their normal selves again.
Great to see Chuck doing what Chuck does.
Great to see the ball movement that can often be lacking.
Great to see Rockets basketball again.
very valuable situational player
I kept thinking Bill Worrell was going to say, "Hayes has Amar'e Stoudemire bamboozled!"
mind bogglingly good defense. wow.
The Knicks announcers, particularly Walt Frazier, were raving about his defense all game.
That there is a man's man.
Glad to see Chuck show all the doubters what his value to this team is. Miller, Scola, and Hill couldn't stop Amare AT ALL.
Too bad this still wont stop all the complaining by the 'Smartest GMs' and 'HOF coaches' here on Clutchfans about Rick playing Chuck over Hill ("cause Hill is taller and athletic").
Defense wins the championship for you, the same is true for a game. Lowry and Hayes won last two games for us because they can play good defense. Martin, Scola and others were playing the same level before, but we were 0-5.
Clutch didn't use an opportunity to pick sides, or backhand either guard. It could be because he has a mind capable of rational thought.
Watching that was brutal because Amare is on my fantasy league and I needed points and field goals to win. thanks Chuck lol.
If it makes you feel any better.. I was in the same boat! Groaning and cheering at the same time.
It's been a long time since I've seen someone just completely shut somebody down like that.
I remember seeing sometime in the 1st quarter that Amar'e had 14 points, and he was killing it. With 4 minutes left in the 1st quarter, Chuck Hayes entered the game.
Amar'e finished the 1st half with 16 points. That's how much he shut Amar'e down.
It was great, and the refs were letting them play a BIG key to that kind of defense.
I think the key words were, situational defender.
I know you must be very proud! :grin:
