100 points. Two players. This award could go one of two ways.

1. Ben Gordon

2. Ben Gordon and Michael Redd

Do I honor Michael in defeat for contributing to such a great shootout? That’s what I did after the legendary Nash-Kidd 161-157 Thrilla in the Continilla.


Thinking some more…

Gilbert did score 32 and hit the game tying and winning free throws, but Don Nelson was a big part of that. Delonte West had a monster game himself. Wait I’m losing my train of though…

I’ve got my answer…

Player of the D.A.Y. is Ben Gordon. Sorry Michael. The Bulls were in an 18 point hole in the fourth quarter, and the man who we once tried to label “The Late Show” or “The Convection Oven”, got hot. 48 points beats 52.
