PG Cleveland: Win 

Post#1 » by MickeyDavis » Sun Jan 10, 2021 3:20 am

That was one ugly game. I'll take the win but we're 10 games in, hopefully we get it together soon, the schedule will be getting tougher starting late next week against Dallas, followed by the Nets and Lakers. And the way we're playing Orlando and Detroit will be tough as well.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

Really uninspiring W. Depth issues makes it much harder to sleepwalk through games this season.

I don't know if the Bucks aren't good right now or aren't good period.

Cavs didn't really have any of their players so not much to take away here.

One part is good that we can see once more how effortlessly Middleton can score when needed, even when he doesnt plays well but the rest is chaos.

Im not worried about our starters at all bar Brook, we need to trade him, he simply cannot be starting C on contender...

Bench is ****, nothing else to add there

Roster needs some tweaks. And if we're going to play like ass on defense, might as well have it be the rookies who can splash threes.
still learning the game

Just going to keep telling myself the rookies are going to take over the second unit and Diakite is going to be a thing.

I guess I never really watched cedi before, but he didn't look like an nba player and I think some people wanted to go after him. Thanasis and portis vs thon and mcgee underwhelmed. I expected some comedy and only got that 4th quarter center lineup dominating us. Hopefully at some point we can address our bench and brook around the trade deadline if this is how they continue to look.

Jrue, more than any other Buck, looked exhausted from the back to back. He had nothing and played poorly.

Portis is just a good player, and can actually pass.

DJA shot poorly, but at least seemed functional and pesky tonight.

DJW was good, he absolutely has to play over Thanasis.

Forbes has no business on the NBA. He's simply too short plus too slow. Every metric describes him as terrible, as does my eyes.

Cedi Osman is terrible, and making $8 million. Relieved is not from us.

I can see why Horst had interest in Damean Dotson. Versatile well rounded contributor.

The team at full strength is definitely good, just not title level. If I had to put money on it I'd say 2nd round exit.

Need Bud to not be so damn fearful of playing Nwora, Merrill, and DJW.

Who are the likely candidates for the buyout market this year?

Our bench is thin. Hardly a revelation but hopefully there are still some moves we can make before the deadline.

Good game for Middleton. Bad game for Paschke, who seemed oddly fixated on Drummond's rebound total in a manner reminiscent of Gus Johnson talking South Philly.

Isn't there a 100+ point home streak alive or did that end? I was kind of sweating it as Holiday rattled in the hundredth point on a shaky FT, but I may be living in the past. If there is such a streak, it would have been nice for Paschke to mention that instead of Drummond rebound watch.
