That's one of the plays of the year… and the man behind it is Jason Maxiell. I think Jason Maxiell should have been 6th man of the year… mainly because Manu Ginobili isn't really a starter.
For some reason… he only played 17 minutes against the Celtics in game 1. Considering the Celtics have obviously, and correctly, decided to attack the rim… I don't understand why Maxiell wouldn't get a few more minutes back there. But hey… who am I to question a playoff-tested genius like Flip Saund….er……
The benches are going to be big in these games…. and they need Maxiell. Lindsay Hunter and Rodney Stuckey did fine jobs in game 1… but if the Celtics are going to attack, attack, attack…. you would have to expect Maxiell to have an impact.
Then again… maybe he's still afraid of this:
