Maybe over the years my memory of the game has become distorted, but I recall Jalen ruining a good first half effort by a young team by coming out in the second half taking half-assed shots with no real effort to run back defensively which is why he was probably given a seat on the bench.

The game was a big joke to Jalen - most the games were;
He was a disgrace to professional athletes and the game of basketball while in Toronto.

But fuck he had some great moves in the low post. I spent hours immitating his footwork with the high-release - high-arcing shot. He had some of the most creative/unique footwork in the post near the end of his career.
