Welcome to a special cult movie quote edition of the Daily Roundup.
Said Ray Allen: "I've said all along a veteran big man would help those young guys. We don't necessarily have that at the center position, but Danny is the next-closest thing."
Baron Davis took 19 shots the most on the Warriors. I am convinced that when he leads the team in shot attempts they lose every time.
"He's coming into his own right now," concludes Chiesa. "This is his fourth year, so the learning curve right now is right in front of him. He's always played well. Now is hopefully the beginning of a good year, a solid year for him. He's got game."
"I think he's trying to please too hard," Hill added. "He's all over the place. He's hustling himself into bad position defensively. That's what he's doing. He's such a phenomenal kid and he's such a great athlete and he wants to do well and he wants to please us, but he's overhustling."
"We were really bad defensively," Sonics coach Bob Hill said. "Our pick-and-roll defense was awful. Our post defense was awful. We didn't have any discipline. We got beat on (rebounds) and besides all of that we should have won the game. But there were some things that happened out there that didn't make any sense."
â€œI donâ€™t know if it is the right thing to do to move Johan into the starting lineup after last nightâ€™s performance,â€ Hill said.
â€œWe will have to wait until we get down to LA and see where we are.â€
Ridnour played twice as many minutes (41) as backup point guard Earl Watson and finished with 22 points -- hitting 10 of 17 from the field -- 13 assists, five rebounds and three steals with just three turnovers.
It was a near-brilliant performance wedged into a dreadful meltdown, a 110-106 home defeat against the consensus pick as the worst team in the Western Conference.
"It was probably one of the better games I've seen him scoring -- scoring aggressively," Ray Allen said. "That was definitely a bright spot for us."
