Just Don’t Give Up

Who would have believed it! Just when everyone was thinking that the Miami Heat were almost invincible and just when every team they played could not get anywhere near 100 points, the Utah Jazz come to town and lay down 116 big ones. This happened in an overtime game which resulted in a final score of 115-114. Paul Millsap played the game of his life scoring 46 points, 11 of which came in the last 28 seconds of regulation play and the final two which propelled them into overtime. If he isn’t a top consideration for Player of the Week, somethings wrong. The rest of the team stepped it up as well and considering that they were down by 22 points at one time, that it very admirable to say the least. A lot of us tend to give up when we find we’re getting too far down, we lose the drive and the confidence to move forward. That was not the case with the Utah Jazz in last nights miracle game. They kept up the intensity throughout and it payed off. There’s a lesson in that for all of us.
