That block I think was about as good as we could expect from him. He came over and made a tremendous play, but the ball just barely bounces out of the reach of Metta and despite the great close out... well that's been a microcosm of our season thus far.
But hey, the important note is that Dwight made that block. That was a terrific defensive play.
I just think if he can volleyball spike it he can control it as well but I guess it looks better to everyone watching when he spikes it like that.
