As Hans Gruber once said, 'Shoot the Glass'

Looks like Coach Crean and Dwyane Wade were also paying attention to the well-dressed, celluloid villain.

ESPN.com's Pat Forde offers well-deserved props to TC and DWade for emphasizing one of basketball's lost art forms.

Here's a link to the article -- a terrific write-up that includes a number of comments from Rockets' GM Carroll Dawson, including how Tom Crean's system better prepares his players for a shot at pro ball.

Finally, here's the box score from the game.
