Here’s What Metta World Peace Had To Say After Helping Oust The Nuggets
After a 7 game, 20 day layoff (also known as a suspension), Metta World Peace returned to the NBA floor last night. With such a long break, you had to wonder whether the Queensbridge native would able to keep up with his teammates and the Nuggets. But not only did World Peace play well — he was a difference maker in this one.
World Peace started and played a nearly game-high 44 minutes (second only to Kobe Bryant’s 45, of course), racking up 15 points, five boards, four steals and two blocks. But his impact went beyond the impressive stat line, as he held Danilo Gallinari (one of several players the Nuggets rely on for scoring) to a measly three points on 1-9 shooting. World Peace turned what could have been a disastrous first-round exit for the Lakers into a fairly comfortable Game 7 win.
After the game, Craig Sager (he of the ridiculous suits) caught up with World Peace, asking him the questions on everyone’s mind — namely, how does he feel about heading to Oklahoma City for the next round? The answer was typical World Peace.
We do, in fact, already know: World Peace is from Queensbridge, he plays hard, and will be defending like a man on fire for the next few games. It will be interesting to see if anybody, on either team, can match his intensity.
