Suns 137, Nuggets 115.
Marcus Banks: 7-for-8 from the field, 7-for-8 from deep, 2-for-2 from the line, 23 points.
Last I remember in Boston, this was the kid with the great speed, beautiful penetration abilities and defensive potential, but this was also the kid who wasn't going to succeed because he had rocks in his head and couldn't shoot a lick.
The jury is still out on the rocks. But as of late, it hasn't been on the shooting.
Banks came into last night's game against the Nugs shooting 43.8 percent (14-of-32) from behind the arc. The 7-of-8 performance pushed him to an even sweeter 52.5 percent from downtown. Unreal.
And the former Celtics head case helped spearhead it all. Of course, if there were ever a season to allow me to take those sorts of stats in stride, this would be it.
Keep up the good work, Marcus.
