What is the definition of making a major contribution when your shot is not falling? see Chris Smith.
Check out this stat line:
13 - rebounds led both teams (and at 6'2")
6 - assists led both teams (and 3 times the next best Card with only 2)
3 - steals led all Cards and tied for game leader among all players
0 turnovers - only Card who played more than 10 minutes without a turnover
only committed one foul
and I am not even counting that thunderous drive and left hand dunk near the end for his only field goal. Nice exclamation point there.
Even though I watched the game, or most of it with the lousy ESPN3 feed and freeze ups, when I saw these stats I couldn't believe it. Especially the rebounds. Chris has 13 and Gorgui only has 4? Can this possibly be right? Well, I guess it is.
This performance was the epitome of helping your team win even when your shot just isn't there. I hope everyone on this team takes note of this outstanding performance and emulates it in the future. If they do we have a lot of wins in our future. Great game Chris.
