I don't think he was lazy and just wanted to cruise and stickhandle, as he did backcheck and play hard on the defense.
His two shot blocks had me laughing. Ending up sprawling on his back trying to avoid the shot on his first attempt, and going head first (but blocking it at a key moment) was gutsy. I think the crowd also put a big burden on him mentlaly
