For those of you that missed it, last night's game was simply awesome. The matchup between Pau Gasol and Blake Griffin was one to behold. Pau has always been deemed as soft and a finesse player. Blake Griffin is a strong, up and coming star, with spectacular jumping and dunking abilities. He got the best of Pau on several occasions, posterizing Pau on 2 killer dunks, but in the end, Pau's tough defense grounded Blake's high flying act. You know... a lot of people are talking about those dunks. How Blake got the best of Pau on two outstanding dunks but I praise Pau for getting in there and attempting to swat it away. I'm tired of defenders just stepping aside and allowing the dunk. Pau at least stepped in there and did what he could to stop them and that defensive mindset is gave Pau the edge late in the game. Kudos to you, Pau!
