"El Busto" was incredible on D in game 2! If he plays like that all series long it will make Kidd think twice about penetrating! And without that, what else do the Nets have?

Was that a fluke or did he wake up?

Jemel, you may recall that this guy was a throw-in on the Nick trade with some upside potential, and I was looking forward to see how he would do in a Lakers uni.

Then West unceremoniously dumps him, sending him to Boston for Travis Knight.

Not one of West's better moves. :rolleyes:

Yeah I remember. I don't know if I would call him a "throw-in" considering the only other component of the deal was Tyronn Lue.

Battie just seemed to be in the right place at the right time almost every time down on defence. Hopefully, he can keep it up

Batman has improved over the season. Last year he had a really bad high ankle sprain that curtailed his improvement the 2nd 1/2 of last season.

This year he was backing up VPot and then when Vitaly got injured, Batman has blossomed - big time. He is a tough one, stands his ground and is a primary defender, but also has a nice little jumper every so often. Hard worker. :yes:

I've been impressed with Battie's hustle on D and on the boards, he looks really hungry for those rebounds.

I think this playoff run will really help his experience, and just imagine if he was playing beside a real low-post threat like say,,,,Duncan.

Do you think his rebounds would improve more with a low post threat? :)
