Ryan Anderson is a maniac. A total maniac. This is evidenced by the fact that he’s taken 126 shots while only accumulating 3 assists. Any other player in the league does that, they would get crucified. Literally crucified. NBA fans are dedicated.
But Anderson gets a pass because his shooting is otherworldly right now. When he gets the ball, the best play is never to pass it to a teammate. His teammates might miss, they might turn it over, things he doesn’t normally do. Just shoot it. Go for 50.
Never mind that it took him 56 minutes to score the 36 points. If he wanted 50 they would have had to go into octuple overtime. Thanks Jrue. Ruining the fun for everybody.
