Ibaka needs to get good quick or he's gonna find himself shipped out for another player with a longer term contract so that the clips can roll the contract into future seasons as trade ballast or if we're lucky a player with better fit.
Batum has been amazing so far. Imagine how much better the team would be with a healthy Morris chipping in. Clips forced to play small and play Bledsoe, who hasnt sucked for once.
Down night for Kennard, but tbf they were glued on his ass like white on rice. Kennard is respected as an elite shooter so no chance the other team will let him get rolling with some open shots. However if it means it spaces the floor, then thats value of its own.
Overall, im super impressed by the grit of the team. These dudes aint quitting and are hustling on every play. It's similar to those Pacer squads that PG13 led back in the day. With better health, i can actually see this team complete for a 5 seed with a chance at 4th.
Luke saw a couple of double teams and even a triple team on the attack it was nuts. Find more ways to get him open but the gravity is clearly there even on a slow shooting night. The biggest thing is he kept trying on defense
