Hmm no JBB and they go off ? not a good look for him even if it really wasn't the reason it definitely could have played a role in the players being more relaxed.

A whole lot of factors to sort through:

1) playing at home where they shoot better;
2) Nance, Allen, Love, and even Delly playing a little better;
3) second shot at the same team in a week
4) JBB calling them out to "grow up"
5) Buckner calling/drawing up some new plays
6) Sexton and Garland both playing well

But main thing I was seeing was better floor spacing allowing them to exploit Vucevic as the last line of defense and White as the front line. Why was that? Was it simply a function of our shooters making shots? Allen actually completing his lobs? Or was there some adjustments I didn't catch?

It was a Sexton Love 2 man game in the beginning that threw them off then after that it was easier for everyone else.

Windler is having knee surgery and is out thru the summer. Non ACL/MCL injury.

It would just be nice if they showed a little consistency as they close out the season, rather than the constant 1 step forward, 1 step back.

With both Collin and Darius heating up in April we should get a better idea of what the upside of the team could be when both players are clicking.

Or maybe we're just not allowed to have nice things ... just as the team is getting healthy we find out Windler and now Prince are having surgery performed. Could be related to our playoff odds dipping down to nearly impossible.
