In Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, Andrew Bogut blocked a Playoff career-high five shots in the Warriors narrow victory.
A block quota of this magnitude was not unexpected given Bogut’s recent history of multiple denials against the H-Town boys:
What was a surprise however, was being informed by basketball Twitter that the last Warriors player to tally 5 blocks in a postseason contest was none other than Mr 13 Inch Vertical himself Chris Mullin, way back in 1989.
Double Surprise? Well, dig a little deeper and you’ll find that Mullin’s teammate in that very game was none other than Manute Bol, who averaged 4.3 blocks per game through the ’88-89 season (Bol only managed 3 in this particular contest, after amassing 18 through a three-game sweep of the Jazz two weeks earlier).
