eye of the tiger, cutting down the nets
can't stop the rock
Bryce Taylor must have woken up Saturday morning in LA, looked in the mirror and said: it's time. He must have had the steely eyed determination and the "O" logo in his eye, just like they edit in for the pre-game videos for Duck football games on the jumbotron - except that was REAL.
because I have never seen such an unconscious performance in a basketball game, both by a team AND by a single player.
Bryce did not miss a shot Saturday afternoon. Think about that: go outside and take ten shots at a basketball hoop and see how many you miss; add in the pressure situation BT was in - conference title game? check - and, oh yeah, defense...for those that don't know, shooting 50% in a game is ridiculous, so not missing?
quoth NBA Jam: He's On FIRE!
It must be the shoes, then. So it is decided.
