I remember in the Knicks game when Chandler gor the flagrant for the elbow to Lin's face. When asked about it in the post-game arena link interview, Lin just laughed and said he just goes in harder and stronger.
I was thinking the exact same thing watching the game last night. I'm tired of seeing this team get punked. All we need is one guy to be the enforcer and his toughness will spread throughout the team. We don't need a guy that is going to go out and start fights, just someone that isn't going to take anybody's ****.
This team is too nice. Blatant cheap shot taken at Beverley and Lin and we retaliate with nothing. Screw being a likeable team. Would you rather be feared or loved?
Even Tracy McGrady stood up for his teammates, and everyone here calls him a huge ****ing pussy.
At that point - without retaliating - we had two T's to their 0 and they were in the bonus. Can you imagine what would have happened if we did retaliate? They would have gotten 15 consecutive free-throws per some NBA rule we didn't know about.
I agree, but I don't have to be honest. He "shut down" Durant and only allowed him 41, otherwise he would have gotten 30 more in the 2nd half. The only time Durant got the ball was in the inbounds play. Garcia was on Durant like flies on iSht.
