After Steve Blake practiced with the Los Angeles Lakers Saturday Mike D'Antoni stated that the point guard had a "shot" at playing Tuesday against the New Orleans Hornets. Our lofty dreams here at Silver Screen and Roll are coming true, it seems, as he has now said Blake will "definitely" play in Tuesday's final home game before a 7 game road trip, per Mark Medina.
Mike D'Antoni says Steve Blake definitely will play vs. Hornets, but wouldn't say how many minutes or if he'll be main backup behind Nash— Mark Medina (@MedinaLakersNBA) January 28, 2013
In other news, Mike also reiterated his love for Steve Blake, and how he wanted to acquire him for years but couldn't find a way to land him.
Mike D’Antoni is a @steveblake5 fan. "I always tried to get him for years," he said. Thinks he’s an excellent fit for the offense.— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter) January 28, 2013
Steve Blake back, everybody.
