Phil Pressey was absolutely awesome today. After the first half of game one on Sunday morning, Pressey has improved each and every day. His 11-point, five-assist, three-steal game today was easily his best. Putting aside the stat line, it's the way Pressey was able to make plays for his teammates that made it so special.

Pressey didn't play full court press defense as much as he did against Peyton Siva and the Detroit Pistons, but he was exceptional in the half court again today. Pressey doesn't have long arms but is extremely fast moving laterally. He has supreme instincts and seems to have perfect timing when going for a steal. The prime example came with less than 20-seconds left in the game. He was matched up with Pacers point guard Donald Sloan on the perimeter and suffocated him, forcing him into his help defense, Colton Iverson. Sloan missed his shot attempt; then Pressey grabbed the loose ball, got fouled, and hit two free throws to win the game.
