Demoting Zu to the bench was a poor coaching decision. He's not the same player.

Kennard is Jerome 2.0. Can't stress enough how foolish it was to pay him before evaluating him at all.

Nice D yes, but it's EFFORT. Outworking everyone on the floor. Like the ESPN guy said, that's winning basketball.

If this team ever gets as badass and hardcore as they talk, it's a title.

They're going to have to figure something out because I'm not taking Ibaka, the better center, out of the starting lineup. I'd even try Reggie at point with Zu for the 2nd unit. Lou Will can't pass nor set up for ****. And Zu needs to be more patient when he gets the ball in the paint. For some reason he's rushing and pressing as soon as he gets the ball.

The team is playing good overall though

At very least, Kawhi and PG need to be staggered more. The all-bench lineups aren't it.

Ibaka blocking shots, dunking offensive boards, and hitting jumpers and 3s... what a luxury to have.

It could be if Morris gets on track. Plus you extend the life and freshness of Kawhi and PG in 4th quarters and for the season. Staggering them all through the season will wear them down. Maybe you give up a small lead shrinkage with the 2nd unit if that preserves the health of Kawhi and PG

Did anyone notice Dahntay Jones is a part of the coaching staff? I'll always like him for bumping into Draymond while he was giving an interview, when he was on our team.

Batum is probably the best playmaker on the team.

Lou at point for the 2nd unit isn't working.

If Lou isn't traded by the deadline, he's going to be this season's Trez.
