My favorite part of the game came early in the second half when Uche Echefu received the ball at the top of the key and didn't have a defender within ten feet of him. Hickson and Costner, standing together under the basket having a chat or doing whatever the hell it is they do instead of playing defense, both point at Echefu; neither one moves toward him. So they're both at least in good rebounding position after Echefu misses the three-pointer, but Jason Rich is able to sneak in, collect the miss, and score the bucket.

A microcosm of the entire season, those five seconds.
