Like it or not, if Walter was not in the game at all, then Denver never
would have built a lead or started a run that needed to be stopped.
Like I said before.... you can't gloat about patching up a hole in the wall
if you are the one that punched it there in the first place.

I'll echo these thoughts also. Pierce had a fine game for a guy that
the ball as much as he did. Heinsohn has been more and more critical of his
game for a while now, not being critical of what he can do but what he's
incapable of doing.
*Chucky Atkins* was the gear that made the team work. I particularly liked
the many times he didn't pick up his dribble and just created openings with
ball movement. At least the ball hogging kept the ball out of PP's hands
long enough to open something up. When PP's handles the ball too far out
things get clogged up and motion stop.
Like it or not, Waltah's 3's was again instrumental in stopping Denver's
Mihm just isn't showing anything much while Blount continues to make big
contributions. Will he ever be a force for big minutes??
