It is that time again. Let’s hear from you readers. We had another week of stellar performances. Pick the ONE that stands out to you, and tell us a story.
Filling in for Casey this week on “The Pine” in starting it off with the POTW. My pick goes to IUPUI’s own George Hill now playing for the San Antonio Spurs. He scored 29 points, hitting 5 three-pointers, en route to taking a 3-1 series lead against the Dallas Mavericks. Since Tony Parker’s injury at the end of the regular season, Hill has come on strong as a reliable guard in the absence of Richard Jefferson’s game. Hill is turning into the athletic swingman many thought Jefferson would be.
I know many will ask how I couldn’t hand it to another NBA guy who went for a career playoff high in South Beach today. Hill stepped up much in the same fashion but did so quite unexpectedly (And boy did he need to as Tim Duncan shot 1-9 for 4 points). Besides, Hill’s performance will end up being the dagger while the other’s just delays the inevitable.
So let’s hear it. Who gets your POTW?
