His performance included a free throw, a 3-pointer, and a one-handed dunk in transition, all of which fueled his emotional outburst towards the crowd. While Watson acknowledged that he doesn't usually celebrate in such a manner, he felt it was necessary to release some pent-up emotion in that moment. His coach, Michael Malone, commended Watson's passion and energy, emphasizing that it showed how much he cared about the game. Overall, Watson's performance was a testament to his resilience and ability to turn adversity into motivation on the court.
