He had magnets on him all night, attracting double-teams every time he touched the ball. And instead of forcing the ball inside – a tough task against Chris Daniels even in single-coverage – Tyler didn’t have much trouble finding the open man. He got into foul trouble early, which limited his effectiveness on defense and, ultimately, his time on the court. But he made two big shots late where he just plowed his way under the hoop and finished with skilled post moves. Expect more in Game 2.
