"I jumped up and cheered and everybody was dead silent, looking at me. I just said, 'Hey, you guys score, you cheer. My boy scores, I cheer.'"

Ryan Reaves was rewarded with a four-year contract in January and he's continued to work hard on his game to make sure that he stays in the St. Louis lineup.

"Since I've been with St. Louis permanently, I've tweaked a couple of things and really started to work on things that they want me to work on. And some things I want to work on, too. When you're on a team with as many good players as we have, you always want to be working on the next thing, just to make sure you have that spot on the team."
