Maybe they misread that the Spurs were still looking for a big to add to their roster and felt these games would be an audition for that spot? Maybe they slugged back a couple 5 hour energy drinks before tipoff which carried a long buzz throughout the game? Or maybe their number finally came up for their time to be in the spotlight for once in their careers.
Basketball is not an equal opportunity game. If you can't shoot it well, you don't get to shoot. -- Bob Donewald
