I like how Sexton got called for flailing, CP3 thought it should've been a flagrant, and the ref gave him the *he learned it from you Dad look.*

It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

sorry, the thought of watching CP3 and Sexton in the same game made me nauseous

Okoro is starting to put it together. He can definitely play the 2 if he keeps this up.

I think it's so funny how Okoros best game as a pro comes playing next to Sexton not DG

Per usual the truth is less funny. Collin assisted on 5 of Okoro's points, 11 were unassisted and the rest were assisted by other teammates.

Great game by Isaac ... hopefully JBB can be convinced to not push him to the point of collapse again, though.

Here's a highlight video for Isaac:


This game wasn't just a case of Isaac finally making shots, we ran a lot of P&R with him as the ball handler and he took advantage of the fact that teams will hide their weaker defenders on him and he made use of Allen as a threat. By the time the Suns adjusted he was scoring over CP3 and even made a crazy shot over Bridges.

Of course it helps immensely that his 3pt shot was dropping, otherwise defenders would just stay back on him; but this may be a glimpse in to the future where we will be able to run offense through as he develops in to a legit triple threat.

Gettin the ball into Okoros hands should be the focus of the team going forward he can get to the rim pretty easy compared to DG trying to play point god

I'm glad to see Isaac having a big game. Earlier in the season he was primarily playing the lawn chair occupant on offense. He still needs to shoot better but I'm hopeful on him as a 2 way guard. Definitely can see flashes of that Jimmy Butler game if we don't ruin his development.

maybe you can call him a guard at times but he is more slashing sf than anything right now, it was nice to see him step up when the coaches had no choice but to ask him too. I think this roster will be a lot better off taking the ball out of both guards hands and giving it to him in the short term anyway. Luckily for the Cavs Sexton can play off him whereas DG needs to be the creator general to have any positive impact. Maybe all 3 find a new groove together over the summer but I doubt it
