The boxscore for this game lists Aaron Brooks as having blocked two shots. Damn good for a midget like him, right? That’s what I thought. So I check out the first one and it’s like 90% steal and 10% block. I cannot articulate the disappointment that I felt when I saw it except in the form of an emoticon. :'(
You can imagine my reluctance to even look at the second one. I almost skipped it, such was my melancholy. But the play-by-play was tantalizing. Alexis Ajinca getting blocked on a layup by a manlet? Through teary eyes I viewed the act. It wasn’t Ajinca, but it was Brian Roberts getting totally demolished on a transition layup attempt. Such joy, my friends. I have been delivered from darkness into the light.
He also hit 6 threes, which is more in line of what we expect from him.
