Home court is beginning to take on a whole new meaning for the Cs


This was not a game to lose, but after a number of home court embarassments, it was beginning to look that way again, all through the first half. However, after seeing a 35 point mid third quarter lead vanish, and have the young Sacramento team beat all the odds the other night with that amazing comeback, I kept my hopes up; after all, we were down ' only  ' 15 at the half.

  Sure enough, the Cs showed us what championship teams can do, even when they're having a collectively bad shooting night. They put the brakes on the Indiana offense, and a couple of key players, mainly P.Pierce and Ray Allan started to get their act together.

The final outcome became inevitable, in my mind, at any rate, when we managed to tie the score by the end of the 3rd. quarter. One main thing that stands out, in my mind, and the statistics will bear me out, is that we had an incredible night at the free throw line, with a better than 92% finishing rate.

Doc Rivers must have taken one of my former messages to heart, and kept R.Rondo and K.Perkins practising at the free throw line for a good number of nights, as they were a combined 12 for 14 from the line. Kudos to both of them for  a fine game. It was also well noted that the turnover rate was down to a minimum- probably their lowest this season. 

Defense and timely offense made the difference this game, and yes, Kevin Garnett was greatly missed. Hopefully, he'll be available for the matchup against Orlando.
