Motor City Cruise Games

Instead of making a thread for each game, figured it might make more sense to have one to discuss games. Figured interest will be high as long as Lee and Garza are down there.

Tonight the Cruise have their first ever hone game against the Herd. 7PM and can be streamed on ESPN+.

Cojo was laughably bad last night, it’s only a matter of time before saben takes his spot permanently.

Sirvydis' stroke is very clean.

Saben with 33 points to follow up his 42 point performance. 4-8 from deep and 9 assists. Solid game for him but he did have 6 TOs.

THe guy getting the 2nd most attempts and points per game has been Garza and it will certainly be interested to see how Saben does if Garza gets moved back up with the Pistons due to the injury of KO.

I was surprised Garza got 36 minutes last night with the Pistons playing tonight. I guess the Cruise home opener was a the reason but he will likely be in the Pistons rotation tonight.

Did Deyonta Davis not report or playing elsewhere (ie overseas)?

This is my biggest bone of contention with Casey right now. Cojo continues to play like absolute ass and Saben is still with the Cruise. Same with Lyles and Pickett. Now, admittedly I don't know what it would take to be able to bring both Pickett and Lee up; I'm assuming with Diallo apparently gone that opens up a guard spot. Don't know about swapping out Lyles for Pickett.

EDIT: Diallo may not be on the way out after all. There's nothing in the news today so maybe he just got a stern lecture.

Yeah he looked good in the action I've seen from him, great shot, drove to the basket. Looked tall/big too - almost as big as Garza.

G-league team against our bench, who wins?

Saben Lee, Sirvydis, Livers, Picket, Garza can all shoot better than our bench guys (with KO out, who was the best shooter on the team).

always has been, it looks effortless. I know he gets a bunch of flack from the board here, but I think he’s good enough to make a roster based off his shooting alone. he just looks like he moves in slow motion :lol:

I mean, it was always clear from the jump that Casey was gonna lean on team Canada to stabilize the bench/young guys. it’s clear that at least SOMETHING has to happen, and i’d put my money on saben time.

and the diallo thing, I think was about his frustration with playing time, but also weaver letting him know that he needs to hold out for another month, and weaver will try and find a new place for him if the situation hasn’t been resolved.

that was a very long sentence.

I noticed that isaiah livers played one game for the cruise and missed the next 3 or 4 games.

Did he have a setback as far as his injury?
