Seriously. I mean, I have the utmost respect for Kidd, but you aren't going to see another game like this that came so... unnoticeable, for a really long time.
Almost all of his assists seemed to come from passes to Carter coming off screens for quick hitters (any PG could do that), and just playing within the offense and moving the ball. His points came off open 3's and fastbreak layups, with a few nice moves thrown in here and there. It really didn't seem like he attacked from the halfcourt set much at all, from what I saw.
Again, brilliant statline, but after watching it, meh.
Any PG could do that, but how many are actually doing it? Again, 19 assists! And how many PGs could grab (or bother to grab) 16 rebounds? Just give the man his props, he played great.
He would, that's the only difference between him and the other top players. He's every bit as talented, if not more so. I was relatively close to the action (at the game) I can tell you first hand the man was on a mission, when he took it to the rim, there is not a man on this earth that could've stopped those moves last night.
That's insane. anyone ever got 20, 20, 20? If not who came the closest?
Wilt once (1968) had a 22/25/21 game. That's the only official triple-20 in history, although he probably had more such games, which weren't recorded, because the last "20" represents blocked shots, which became official only after Wilt retired...
