After a string of mediocre games, The Manimal scored 21 & 10 against the Suns on Tuesday night and followed it up with a game high 26 points on 11-15 shooting against the Bucks last night.   What’s been the inspiration behind his recent play?

“My mother challenged me,” Faried said. “My father even stepped up and said, `Play your game and do what you do.” “My family came up to me and said, `Hey, do what you are paid to do and that is play basketball.`Stop worrying about everybody else, stop being nervous, stop being timid and play your game.”
