A tip of the hat to Mike Muscala………..
Job #1 tonight: Limit (can’t stop) the effectiveness of this guy. How, will be the question. Speed to the basket, double-team ploys, takin’ it to him in an effort to draw PFs, or a new scheme Reed might employ, who knows? One thing is for sure, however. We need to see the Gabe of old and not the Gabe who went a combined 8 for 22 with 6 boards and 22 points in his last three games. How he bounces back will tell the tale. I guess it’s fair to say that all eyes – including those of the NBA scounts present – will be on Number 31.”
