Last night Thornton had trouble with his jumpshot, so he started putting himself in a postion to make layups. He is strong and plays around the bucket with quickness to overcome his size. There are some lessons in last night's performance that other players would do well to emulate. I have been a fan of his since he showed up in Sacramento. Thornton, Thomas and Cousins lead the team in competitive drive. I hope it is contagious.
