After seeing the Spurs’ Robert Horry hit another big 3-pointer in his illustrious playoff career in the waning moments of Game 4 Monday night to seal a win over the Nuggets, I ask myself, “Who on the Rockets is capable of being the role player on the Rockets who could be the next ‘Big Shot Bob’ or ‘Big Shot Rob’ as they say?”
My vote is for Shane Battier. The guy seems to have the knack to knock ‘em down in clutch situations, which he did in Game 5 making 5-of-7 treys.
Plus, I love the sound of “Big Shot Shane” or “Big Shot Battier.” His name – and his game — was built for making big shots. Now let’s see him do it in Game 6 for the series win. If he does, remember you heard here first my nickname for him.
