When you hyper-extend that joint, you're stressing your gastrocnemius and soleus muscles (calf). When he tried to plant, those stressed muscles wouldn't react for him.


As the trainers used to tell me.... each leg injury goes closer to the ground if you don't heal the first one. Knee issues cut short my career playing college football and when recovering I just strained my left achilles and it took 4 months to walk right again.

Clark?

He was dishing like crazy. He'd have a bunch more assists if people on the other end felt like finishing the play.

Hero - Dwight - fantastic game

Zero - Duhon, ugly as hell out there. Not gonna put Pau, yeah he couldn't score, but he had 16 rebounds and 3 blocks.

I agree he had a nice stretch but I guess I expected him to be one of the key guys tonight, stepping up with some hustle and some scoring. He wasn't really stretching the floor, didn't really score or rebound as I hoped he would
Maybe my expectations were too high, I dunno

I would put Pau's offense and Duhon ahead of him in terms of how bad they were, him being the least bad of the 3

Needs to be mentioned, what the hell was going on with Parker ?
I thought he was high or drunk or something :man10:

I was thinking the same thing. Tony Parker was playing like Smush Parker. He was horrible. Makes me wonder if he's hurt or something.

Hero: Blake. Dwight was dominant but without Blake's 3's and his defense we lose.
Zero: Pau's offense, like others have mentioned. He couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, but at least he boarded well and played good d.

Pau/dwight/blake were heroes.

Meeks is still my zero despite that last dunk. Just useless out there for 52mins.

Not a bad choice. On the defensive end, he tried to flop every time he got caught on a pick from Asik.
