That’s Kobe Bryant-like. So someone has to make that effort to stop him and I knew I had to stop this guy. Fortunately, I was able to do that. I think he wasn’t able to score against me,” said Banal, who limited Herndon to just four points in the final two quarters.With the Thunder flying high in the tourney with an immaculate 3-0 record, Banal believes that the team must stay the course and focus on the gameplan laid out by coach Eric Altamirano going forward.“You know the saying, ‘Why fix it if it ain’t broke.’ I guess we just have to focus on ourselves and keep doing what we’re doing. If we’ll have adjustments, it’s coach Eric’s job to do that and we’ll just follow him and listen to him. So far, I think he’s doing a good job cause we’re 3-0.”ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more
