Andre Miller and Nicolas Batum share the same favorite memory of the 2010-2011 Trail Blazers season.
I’ll give you three guesses to figure it out and the first two don’t count.
Yep, you’re right. Dre-to-Nico. The heart-stopping alley-oop to seal the 98-96 comeback victory over the San Antonio Spurs on March 25th.
“The San Antonio game,” Miller said. “That’s prolly the one moment for me. It was a lot of tension, it was a unbelievable comeback against one of the best teams, franchises, of all time and it’s tough to do that, but it happened and that was good for everybody.”
Batum didn’t feel the need to elaborate. He knew Trail Blazer fans would know exactly what he meant when he said, “San Antonio.”
After a bit more coaxing Batum elaborated, “When I scored the last shot. San Antonio was the best team in the league, you down six, that was a great moment.”
When I think back to that game my mind gets fuzzy, I’m still speechless. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. If that’s the case then a video has to be worth a gazillion. Feel free to watch this over and over. It’s completely understandable.
