Stewart is far more developed offensively than I would have ever imagined. Crazy to see him out there hitting 3 pointers. We all knew he would work hard and the knock on him was he was a more old school "traditional" center instead of a newer big who can shoot from outside but he's been doing pretty good from outside. Crazy he is getting there and comfortable with it in year one.

Yeah it's Karl Malone-ish.

Yeah it's almost like the GM was able to project a skillset and talent level of a guy. Go figure.

His attitude of outworking people ranked higher than him is awesome but I do question his BBIQ at times, especially offensively.

That's likely due to Casey's weird system where bigs can be all things regardless of skill set but still it's on Stewart to break down each play and learn where he needs to be.

I'd really like to see us run a motion based offense with, not just cause it's "modern" but because it fits our guards and wings much better.

Hayes, DSJ, Lee, Diallo, Jackson, Bey & Grant would all be better off playing in a system where we take advantage of their ability to attack the seams as opposed to hoping their 3s connect

I got amazed of how Diallo moved. He was in control of his body and of course he was superior than his rivals. It kinda remind me of Butler's game.

Diallo looked more agile than everyone in the team. Add to that, his movements are very purposeful and direct. He looks like yet another great addition to this roster.

While Diallo was showing us some of his game, Svi got the start for OKC due to injuries, 27 minutes, 16 points 7/10 shooting.

Glad Svi gets a chance to reboot and happy we made that trade. Diallo looks like another youngster who's ready to contribute.

Watching this young hard working bunch growing on the court has made the losses much more palatable than most tanks. No complaints when they lead us to a win here and there.

But svi has been largely the same inconsistent player with them. His two previous games he was a combined 5-21 fg. If he’s not hitting his shots, he brings nothing to the table. I don’t get that impression about Diallo.

Back to Toronto, yikes. I figured they would lose, Powell scored around 40 points in each game vs Detroit this season. Watching some highlights they looked like they are just trying to finish the season. I don’t get why they didn’t try to get anything for Lowry.

Saddiq calling glass was awesome

As for Lowry during our last 2 games against Raptors, he didn't looked like an All Star at all, barely a NBA player to me. I don't know how he'll get the 50 millions on 2 years he wants.
