The Defining Moment

It wasn't the first quarter surge. It wasn't the 21 point lead that saw the Kings firing on all cylinders for the first time in the series. No, it was when the Sonics made their run and got within seven points. Everyone there new Mike Bibby was "in the game", but when he took the ball and drove straight down the lane, drew the foul and completed the three-point play, Bibby was making a "statement". It was deliberate and defining. The Sonics knew it. The Kings players knew it. If this game was anybodys for the taking, Bibby was taking it. And the whole team responded as a "team" and finish the Sonics off like they used to when they knew it was their game to win. The Kings may or may not win this series, but they won this game as a complete unit. And that was fun to watch.
