I'm looking at the Heat-BKN game.
MIA may very well win this game, but BKN is getting more and more confident.
Blatche already has 12 pts and 5 rebs...DWill has 6 assists before halftime.
Blatche is a good story...I'm happy for the man that can turn it around.
Plus, BKN is giving HARD fouls...I don't know how in the world LeBron converted that And 1, but boy Stackhouse put him on his back with the foul.
We need someone off our bench to not play dirty, but give Stackhouse-like fouls...HARD fouls...without getting flagrants for it.
There is an art to it, too - ask 07-08 James Posey. That man had a GIFT of playing physical and giving HARD fouls right after the whistle and he always seemed to get away with it.
Look at him just maul Kobe after KG's putback here - right around the 30 sec mark:
Raked him right across the arms after the whistle. Try to nail a jumper after that.
We need that once again. Maybe AB can substitute this to a degree with his defensive pressure once he returns, but we DO need to give some hard fouls every once in a while...this is one of the reasons why I miss Perk.
When Perk fouled, you FELT it. I felt some of Perks fouls right here in my living room.
