Travis Outlaw career-high (again) 36 points 20070418 Golden State Warriors

This game belonged to Travis Outlaw. He really has became a scoring machine recently. What I particularly like is his aggressiveness to drive into the lane. In the early part of the season I was impressed by his much improved jump shots. But then when he settled with more and more outside jumpers I became somewhat disappointed on his inability or unwillingness to drive to the basket. (Guess I was a little greedy) In the last few games of the season I finally saw what I'd like to see from Outlaw's game - a swingman who can score in a variety of ways: fastbreaks, perimeter shootings and also scoring or drawing fouls off the dribbles. I do think he still has not reached his ceiling yet. Hope our beloved new GM Pritchard can do whatever he can to bring him back next season.
