I'll certainly be awake for the start of this game but I'm not gonna lie...if Hayes doesn't see some decent minutes I'm going to struggle with choosing this game over sleep.

Reminds me of struggling to stay awake to watch Saturday Night Live as a kid, hoping to catch Mr. Bill.

I really think Josh Jackson is a plus player in this league

Tough to tank when the other team is this bad. Kids are playing aggressive.

Hayes spoon feeds Okafor under the hoop and he misses a 1 footer, hopefully he can get some semblance of touch back.

Okafor is such a nightmare. 2 slick passes by Hayes and not only did he completely barf on a simple layup, but a sweet lob and Okafor was so damn ground bound he didn't even attempt it.

Sigh.

Okafor was drafted by the sixers, two years later they got the no.1 pick. He signed as a free agent with the pelicans, two years later they got the no. 1 pick.

I don’t care if he’s good, he’s only here as a good luck charm.

Not to mention if he’s available, better 4s and 5s can take the night off.

Lol Stewart yelling at Sekou about his defensive rotations.

So Sekou looks a hell out of lot better on offense with Hayes out there, I really wonder how much of a language barrier he has.

Hayes looks very comfortable out there. Looks like he made a big leap forward compared to those first 7 games. Great to see because you never really know how a rookie will bounce back after an injury. Hopefully we continue to see him grow over these last 20 games of his rookie season.

Man all these kids got talent but its just chaos out there at times. Pinball machine offense. They all look good tonight.

Its hard to tell after so few games, but Hayes leading the charge, as a floor leader may have something to do with it.
