Tiago... meet Mr. Wright

Defensive heat-check: the act of taking a silly risk because confidence is at an all time high in reference to the previous trip(s) down the court.

Wright dribbled around a pick and was met with the steely stare that we have come to know as Tiago.  Unsure what to do with himself, Wright started his shooting motion.  This show of weakness was all Tiago needed and he lunged forward as high and far as he possibly could in order to get that all elusive NBA block.  Too late, he realized that he had been fooled by Wright.  Too late, he left his feet as he heard Pop groan to his left.  Too late, as he attempted to pull a Manu Ginobili and pull his arms back.  Alas, his over-confidence had brewed a bitter opiate to swallow and he crashed into the smaller man sending him to the floor amidst shrieks from the black and white striped carrion birds all around.
