Wow, talk about a motivational tool!
Goran Dragic follows up a live chat on BSotS with his best overall game as a Phoenix Sun: 16 points and 10 assists to help the Suns beat the OKC Thunder ON THE ROAD. This was an OKC team riding a 9-game winning streak. And sitting higher in the standings. And without Steve Nash to smooth over any rough patches. Easily the most important game of the year for him.
Then Robin Lopez follows up his own live chat on here with HIS best game as a Phoenix Suns: 19 points, 10 rebounds, 4 blocks and LOTS and LOTS of forced misses at the rim. I was at the game, 12 rows up the corner from the Suns bench, and I'm telling you it was beautiful to watch. The Jazz missed layups badly, and Boozer missed a lot of his little turnaround fadeaways, and it seemed like every one of those had a Lopez hand in close proximity. And only one foul till the fourth quarter. Really cool stuff. Oh yeah, everything he said in the chat that he wanted to do, he DID it in this game. And he even predicted a blowout.
So 2 chats, two HUGE games by the chatters and 2 HUGE wins by the Suns against playoff competition.
So when's the next chat, Seth? And who will it be? I'm thinking Lou or Duds. And, can you time it so it's right before another big game?
