Well, damn! First game of the series I missed; was just wiped out, went to bed early. These western conference series are brutal! Couldn’t be happier for CJ, and won’t miss game 5! We was very good in game 3, too.
He was bad in games 1 and 2, but has been a force in 3 and 4, with combined 44 points. Tonight will be interesting. Memphis really tough at home. I will be really impressed if he can break out tonight in that setting.
CJ seemed to allude that there was some nerves early in the playoffs. The ankle sprain may have been an issue. It is interesting to me though that in games 3 and 4 he came off the bench but got the bulk of the minutes including crunch time. He may just be more comfortable there.
