The J rendered me somewhat speechless (good way of course) by putting up 44 points on the Kings in the 3rd quarter. Having DWill on the court makes all the difference and Memo is helping me look like I knew what I was talking about when I told everyone during the summer that he was going to have a career year this season.
CJ on the backboard dunk: “He (Williams) told me he was gonna throw it when we were running,” said Miles, who added Williams has been trying to make such a play for “about two-and-a-half years.” “He said, ‘C’mon, I’m gonna throw it,’ so I kept running.”
Ronnie B also has his say: “I said, ‘C.J., you stole my dunk. I stole the ball,’ ’’ said Brewer, who would love to have finished Globetrotters-style – but who also knew better.
And then we have Jerry bringing us back down to earth with a little old school throwdown: “We have thrown more alley-oops than I’ve seen in my career. John Stockton never threw an alley-oop in his career. How many have we thrown away trying to make those plays? We’ve had some of them go right, but when they go awry, what does it look like?”
Call me crazy, but I think the combination makes for a winning AND exciting Jazz that totally works for me.
