Should've been Toronto's ball. Shhh....
At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

Go arbitrary assortment of athletes! Beat the other arbitrary assortment of athletes or my mood will suffer!

Barnes is clamping the hell out of him tonight, he's become just a spot up shooter as evidenced by his 0 2pt attempts. Having said that Barnes is probably one of the worst matchups for Cade in terms of length, speed, physicality, quick/active hands.

Its probably an unpopular opinion, but I think the offense looks better at the moment with Hayes running as the lead guard, Cade has had plenty of open looks tonight that he would usually make, and the rest of the offense has looked a lot smoother. If Cade can get 7 or 8 good looks from C&S 3's with some secondary playmaking responsibility I think it would help our team cut down the turnovers and help develop Killian at the same time. Allow him to grow slowly into a potential lead guard instead of just thrusting him into that role

right on cue though, a nice aggressive take by Cade


Barnes and Cade were also high school teammates so Barnes likely has more experience playing against Cade than anyone else in the NBA as they likely went at each other all the time in HS.

It may be sacriledge to say in Detroit, but Drummond might be exactly what this is team is missing. I feel dirty saying that.

Cade is the closer. So valuable.

Casey just has Nurse’s number.

A PnR big who can rebound is exactly what this team lacks. It's why I support a trade for Bagley.

55% from the field and 43% from 3 as a team. We even shot well from the line. I hope our historically bad shooting is in the past.

And you should. Drummond still tries to do stuff he just can't do.

Hmm, someone said Killian and Cade would be the best backcourt in the league in to years. Oh, that was me. I still believe it. I posted Killian's highlights from last year not because of his numbers, but because of the way he can create space for himself to shoot. I said I saw nothing in his actual physical body, motions, form that would prevent him from being a good player.

Gee whiz, he still hasn't even played FORTY GAMES IN NBA after being in the French league, I call it the Gentlemen's league. .

We could definitely use his big body and rebounding for sure...hell we just need a big 6'11+ center that can help Stewart inside the paint defensively and getting rebounds really.

It's necessary when the crow eaters don't step up and say "Man, I guess I blew that one." Throw a little mea culpa out from time to time and I'm not gonna break balls. You don't and I'm gonna rub it in your face until I get tired of doing so. Which is likely never when it's some knee jerk hot take. Examples must be made.
