Otto Porter Jr dominates Maccabi Haifa, rejects shot into the stands
It was the Otto Porter Jr show against Maccabi Haifa. In 35 minutes, Porter had a team-high 19 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 1 monster rejection.
About that rejection, when we featured Houston’s Tarik Black’s 2 hand rejection into the stands, we asked if he should have tried to keep the ball in play. Same could be said for this block. The most common answer was if it’s early on in the game you should try to “send a message” by scaring or embarrassing the opponent; if it’s later in the game, you should try to keep it in play.
