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.

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.
