It also didn't hurt that teammate
"I was getting on him earlier, telling him that he can't dunk and I would never throw him a lob," Gordon told the
"He's coming along and we really need that kind of play from him."
Of course, Noah followed that performance with two scoreless games, denying him any chance to join this week's top 10 (he'll have to settle for recognition in the "honorable mention" category). Ah, the life of a rookie spark plug.
