Pat Bev, Rondo, Reggie, and Mann locking down the opposing star guard they they did Lillard tonight could be a huge game changer for us if they too can stay healthy. Good to see PG have a game like this. Kawhi battled and muscled up. Reggie said he's not going to fade to the end of the bench with new additions added. This is a good thing for the team. Good game overall. I knew Portland would make a run. It wasn't going to be smooth sailing all game long. Lots of talent on this team now. Lets see if Lue can find the right rotations.
I was pleasantly surprised by Cousins. He has such a huge presence in the paint, and he was just gobbling up those boards. Was able to finish inside, and hit a deep 2 as well. I just worry about him staying healthy... With his injury history, every time he runs down the court I was holding my breath... But I agree, if he stays healthy, he gives the team a different look inside, and would be perfect matching up with bigger guys.
To go from having 8 guys in the Orlando game, to not having enough minutes for everyone (still missing Ibaka!), feels good man....
I'm looking forward to the Suns game. Hope Rondo can get CP3 ejected, lol.
