I watched the whole game, took notes and tweeted about it. But lamenting some poor interior defense and bad shooting just doesn’t feel right tonight. The lasting image I have from this game wasn’t Jeff Green’s fierce dunk or James Harden’s outrageously effective Eurostep. It was Kevin McHale, who recently lost his daughter, sobbing into Kevin Garnett’s shoulder while the two hugged after the game.
I’ll get back to overreacting to basketball games tomorrow. Tonight, that just doesn’t feel right.
