An essential win. Pretty even in the numbers. Bell and Hart must close off Della. I wouldn't be surprised to see Edi play for his defense. Waldo is getting stronger despite loss of a tooth last night. Our bigs must come strong. In these playoffs, defense wins these games. We won last night when the defense was so good!. Offense can fail for a variety of reasons as we saw last night but the defense is something to rely on. We control the defense. EFFORT!

Assuming both teams bring their A game, I think we get a tense replay of the game on January 10 in K2, which means we have to hit our FTs because we will see a lot of contact. We also need to contain either Holt or Levesque (whoever is the hot outside shooter, assuming our primary effort to contain DVD is working again).

A lot could depend on how the game is called and how well the Zags adapt. Don't want to see KO get two quick fouls in the first 10 minutes because of blocking fouls involving incidental contact in the back court when he jumps out to cutoff an SMC guard from turning the corner or squaring up.
