This was the old Portland Steve Blake that used to do that to us.

Let's be honest... Blake's production & ability to run the second unit has been probably the biggest difference maker in our season... Keep it up Stevie...

For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Amazing, just amazing! Props.

Did Blake find a way to mention Jesus Christ in that interview after the game? :man11:

Amazing game from him today. :bow:

Yet as I watched him Monday, I could not help think how little it mattered and how right he is. He is not fading into the shadows. He does not know how to go out that way.[.]

It was funny. I missed the beginning of the interview, then I turn around and Blake stares into the camera and says:

"... Jesus Christ."

I have to admit I laughed. :man10:

i remember someone making a joke earlier in the season about the whole "we just need __________ to come back from injury" whether it was nash, dwight, pau. then at some point we had them all back, and we were still struggling. someone joked we just needed blake to come back. it was no joke.

Anybody got a line with Chooka to cap the clip of Blake denying Tyler the ball in the 3rd quarter (I think it was)

:man10:

What a game by Steve. Dude has HEART. His game isn't the most consistent, but he's usually pretty smart out there and NEVER gives anything other than 100% effort. Nice to see him really shine like he did tonight

WOW! Blake was great tonight. Hit some huge 3s (5 to be exact) along with 6 rebounds, 7 assists, and 4 steals, while only turning it over once. Still can't get over what great chemistry he has with Dwight and Jamison.

Blake is a "free" offense PG. Playing for Phil/Triangle and Mike B./Snail really took completely out of his comfort zone. With Mike D. he can let his balls hang freely and just make plays.

I agree, it wasn't entirely those systems, because they didn't make him miss shots, but he's at his best when he's just put out there and they let him do his thing. I think with the triangle and Brown's "system" he was thinking too much, hesitating too much. Now, he's just letting his shots fly like he used to, no hesitation, he's making great passes and playing with a purpose and I still think he's playing pretty good defense overall. Most nights he's not looking for his own shot, but he's still setting guys up for theirs in great spots, putting up 5, 6 , 7 assist games regularly.

I don't know, but he thanked Jesus Christ right after the game, and I have the utmost respect for him because of that.

He's playing like he did when he was in Portland. He's always had the ability... just needed to find a system he's comfortable in.

Great to see him step up with Kobe sidelined. I had a feeling he would. He really seems to be a great fit with D'antoni.
