With 22 seconds to go, Suggs brought the ball up the court and let some time tick off the clock. He drove to his right, directly into a defender and lost control of the ball. The clock expired as Suggs was in a fight for the ball, resulting in a 101-100 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. Despite coming up short in that sequence, Suggs showed that he was not afraid of the moment. He looked confident with the ball in his hands and did not back down from the challenge.
The play, as Suggs said, gave him a great learning experience to build on. “I feel extremely comfortable and I want it in my hands. It has happened to some of the best players in the world in that same position. For me, it’s all about learning. You can’t really learn and get a feel for it until you’re put in a position like that. I’ve been there before but it’s different on this level. We had a guy on the single side with a shooter in the corner. I just need to understand next time to attack that side instead of the middle way where the defense is already set up.”
