Game 62 vs. DAL: Our bitch-ass white boy > all your bitch-ass white boys…

April 18, 2012

…and your bitch-ass possibly white boys, and your bitch-ass boys of unidentified or mysterious ethnicity. Yeah, I’m lookin’ at you, Delonte.

(If this is confusing to anyone, Delonte West called Gordon Hayward a “bitch-ass white boy” while giving him a wet willy. This is how BAWB was born.)

How do I describe this evening…it was like the highest of the highs and lowest of the lows all wrapped up into one tidy little package of a game.

The lowest of the lows was what transpired above. It was disappointing to me that no one on the Jazz reacted or responded to it. Anyone that would, I suppose, was on the bench in a suit/out of town getting surgery. I know that there’s the other side of the coin in this argument, but this has been happening all season (e.g. Dirk/Favors, JJ Barea/Hayward).

On the other end of the low-high spectrum was the hard-fought +1 in the “Win” column at the end of the night. In between were the heartbreaking missed shots and deflating Mavs’ shots, Ian Mahinmi failing to win a single tip against Al Jefferson in 1/2/3OT, the hilarity of no substitutions other than Jamaal Tinsley going in and out as 1OT rolled into 2OT rolled into 3OT, and the huge Jazz shots along the way from Paul Millsap’s putback dunk at the end of regulation to Al Jefferson’s gorgeous pump fake shot at the end of 3 OT.

And now, onto the best part of the post: Enes D-Fav Cam.

Enes Kanter’s bench reactions were the highlight of the 4OT game at Atlanta, but Derrick Favors’ irreaction (lack of reaction) has become legend.

Love the instance on the right in particular, and how the camera zooms in and zooms in on Dramatic Kanter before revealing Favors quietly standing there, oh-so-still, behind him.

Reaction of the Night, though, belongs to Big Al after Millsap’s potentially game-winning miss at the end of 2OT:

Quotage
** Tyrone Corbin on the wet willy, post-game: It happens. [Bunch of reporters say they've never seen that before.] In a park.

Unintentional Dirty Quote Machines of the Night (UDQM)
** Al Jefferson on the season: Just hope this story end with a happy ending. (H/T @SurlyMae via @DJJazzyJody)
** Harpring on Favors: When he comes in, Nowitzki is going to struggle.
** Harpring on Dirk: Millsap’s up in him…That’s his patented shot, the leg up in the air. You gotta match length with length.
** Harpring: If I was playing now, I’d defintely wear a mouthpiece. Boler: The way they bang now, you gotta wear a mouthpiece.
** Harpring: Devin Harris has a tendency to get off early like he’s doing tonight.
** Boler on Favors: Here’s my problem, Carter’s riding him like a bull…in a rodeo.
** Boler: Jefferson banged inside, no call.
** Harpring: DeMarre Carroll is coming up big.
** Harpring on Millsap and Dirk: Getting up in him, make it hard, be physical.
** Boler: Right now in front of us Vince Carter is laying heavy on the shorts, bent over.
** Harpring: When you get up in the morning, the only thing you can ask a player is did he play his hardest.
** Harpring on Big Al’s block and Millsap’s layup: It starts on one end and finishes on the other.
** Boler to Al: There’s no question, we know why they call you Big Al.
** Brian T. Smith (H/T @5kl):

    First of all- What the hell?!? Who does that? I love GoGo!
    One of my favorite moments of this season was watching Earl challenge Dirk…

    We need more big brothers; I miss Earl and Raja!

    It was nice to get a win, but I’m still sad.

    Also, I love Carroll’s face behind Enes’ dramatic reaction.
