Winning 101 - what to do when your shot is not falling

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.

Go Cards.
