Joakim Noah: big time finish
I take a break from the college basketball to say I really should not have paid attention to other people’s status messages and turned on the Chicago Bulls game. I was dead tired, completely exhausted, but I wanted to see a little bit of this “whoa” game that people were talking about.
And it would not end. Big shot after big shot. Players fouling out. Big Baby Glen Davis ballin’ like we knew he could – that big man is something.
At the end of the third overtime, Joakim Noah came out of some sloppy ballhandling and used that agility to dribble his found basketball to the hoop and get fouled by Paul Pierce – one foul away from disqualification – in the process. So Pierce fouled out. From the Sun-Times:
”Words can’t really explain it right now, but at the same time I understand that we haven’t accomplished anything yet,” Noah said. ”I’m just really excited that we’re still alive. We were really close to death today. I feel like every game’s like that — it’s such a roller coaster — but I’m having so much fun right now. I really feel blessed to be in this situation.”
Big play by Mr. Noah, great activity – that was some of the best of his game. Sometimes haphazard, but always balls out.
