Last night during the Milwaukee Bucks 113-105 overtime victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, Bucks guard O.J. Mayo sent the contest into overtime by hitting a tough three-pointer in the corner over the outstretched arms of Carlos Boozer and Wayne Ellington. Take a look at Mayo’s clutch bucket below:
The reaction I had to Mayo sinking the shot simply strengthened the notion that I am going through an identity crisis as a Lakers fan right now. I was ecstatic at the prospect of Los Angeles getting their first road win of 2015, but I was also getting irritated thinking about how the Lakers could’ve potentially lost ground in the Tank Race if they indeed did defeat the Bucks. Luckily for me, the Lakers crunch time offense featured a steady digest of Jeremy Lin and Carlos Boozer with a little bit of Nick Young sprinkled in for seasoning. If that doesn’t put the aroma of “TANK” in the air, I’m not sure what does.
