Who need Kevin Durant or a triple-double from Draymond Green or an offensive explosion from the Splash Bros when you have JaVaaaaale McGee.
During Wednesday’s 29-point beatdown on Portland, the Shaqtin’ a Fool favorite looked like late 90’s Shaq dominating Sabonis and the Jailblazers in the playoffs. In just 13 minutes off the bench, McGee was a perfect seven for seven from the floor, one for one from the free throw line and had five boards, four blocks and one steal to go with his 15 points.
“That’s my whole thing, I just try to be efficient out there,” McGee said.
Efficient is an understatement. He’s shooting 91% in the series and for the month of April, he’s made 37 of 45 shots! He has also scored in double-figures five times in those eight games while never playing more than 18 minutes.
Here’s an amusing postgame interview with McGee and Draymond Green that starts off with an amusing response from Green when asked to talk about the way McGee played. Watch for the milk theft!
