Better play from last night: The Suns or JaVale McGee?

We saw two plays last night that are guaranteed to be on the 2010-11 NBA highlight reel. 

So which one was better?  

First up:  Steve Nash, Marcin Gortat, and Channing Frye combine in the second of three overtimes versus the Lakers:

Or is it JaVale McGee who not only blocks Wesley Matthews' dunk attempt… he cradles it and rips it from his hands:

Tough call.  I think I'm partial to McGee's block, actually, because it's just got a level of nastiness to it… but that Suns play was awesome too.  And that one was basically three clutch plays in a row from Nash, Gortat and Frye.

    dear Steve Nash, Please consider finishing your career with a token year or two with the Celtics and I promise you a ring.

    To me, one of the best plays in basketball is the controlled block. There was once a distinguished gentleman who played for the Celtics who made it his signature play. McGee’s block is a fine example of such craft. bravo.
