You can tell LeBron is getting annoyed of playing PG.

Not sure how Vogel can put a lineup out there that doesn't have at least 1 of Bron, AD, or Kuz.

Vogel is hoping Green gets out of his slump. Dude is so trash right now.

If we had one person that could hit a consistent 3, we would be dominating.

He looks frustrated not getting calls and seems fatigued. It's taking a lot of energy driving to the bucket like that.

Exactly the way I was hoping this game would go... put Bron on the block and give Waiters some burn.

We have looked a lot better this game so far.

Defense has vastly improved. Lillard is not getting the ball too much either.

His touches look about the same. I think we're just doing a much better job on those high screen and occasionally sending two guys at him.

Lebron is still arguably a top 5 player, but you can definitely see his game is slipping a bit.

The adjustment of back to back plays with Lebron posting up on Trent after he started picking him up full court was brilliant - Credit to Vogel / Kidd if they did it.

Loving the AD v Whiteside adjustment too. Whiteside's been so limited, which is good for our shooting percentages at the rim and Nurkic has 3 fouls already.

I think part of it si spending too much energy just bringing the ball up court. He looked better the last 5 minutes of the half just posting up and waiting for Dion to give him the ball.

Bit by bit through the last 4 years. He's been finishing awfully at the rim since the restart.

Our defense is what's winning this game. They've locked down Dame just got to keep it up.
