Danny had a weird game.
Nevertheless, I see this win as a watershed for Granger and for our team. We won a game we were supposed to win. We held the lead, like we should have.
Much of this had to do with Danny imposing his personality and his all-star status on the game. He let Miller and the refs know he wasn't going to put up with cheap shots and getting pushed around and taken advantage of. He had several other plays where he got fouled, got angry, went back and fouled someone else, made a bunch of blocks, and just made his presence known. It made a real difference, and we won the game.
He's gone from proving he's an all-star to using his all-star status to set the tone of the game and ensure our lead was kept and the game was won, ugly as it all was.
