As our friend, Zach Lowe, opined over at CelitcsHub (our TrueHoop partner), Semih Erden likely produced his biggest play(s) of the 2010-11 season with his efforts in Turkey's heart-stopping 83-82 triumph over Serbia Saturday in the semifinals of the FIBA World Championships (setting up a Turkey vs. USA showdown for the gold Sunday).

Sure looked like Erden was channeling his inner Kevin Garnett as he exulted in the face of Serbia's Marko Keselj after a late-game dunk that helped Turkey escape with the win (but not before Erden's last-second block preserved the victory).
