Something you almost never hear of a Mike D’Antoni coached team is winning with defense. But that’s exactly what the Mike D’Antoni coached Lakers did last night during a nail biting victory over the Memphis Grizzlies.
And there was no other play that best symbolized the Lakers’ spirited effort than Earl Clark’s rejection of Memphis swingman Quincy Pondexter.
It’s such a great highlight that only Spanish can properly capture the moment.
To say this was embarrassing for Pondexter is like saying the Rutgers athletic department wished it had a mulligan. Getting blocked is one thing. Getting pwned at the rim is the hoops equivalent of getting stood up at the altar. Quincy, your bride was the hoop and Clark came in like Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate to steal your pride.
