We may be down 2-0, but with 2 straight at home, I still feel good, and feel extremely confident we will bounce back and win game 3.
However, after a tough sequence at the stripe that know one needs to be reminded about, can Mickael Pietrus bounce back?
Probably the biggest knock on Pietrus' is his mental game. He sometimes has a low basketball IQ, and his confidence is easily shaken. With Monta Ellis already struggling, we cannot win this series with the absence of Pietrus, as that knocks us to a 6-man rotation, and loses one of our best rebounders.
So my question is, after arguably losing game 2 for us, how does Pietrus respond in game 3? Some of his early-season traveling and stepping out of bounds with his first step in the corner? Coming off the bench for some clutch 3s and big boards? Or just sitting on the bench, still dwelling on wednesday night?
Keep ya head up, Mickael, it's a whole new game tomorrow!
