I think it’s probably possible if Fox and Bagley insert themselves back into the lineup correctly. Move the ball like we’ve seen the last 6 games. Don’t be a ball stopper.
That is a really good point... I wonder if Bagley and Fox are seeing that?
When a young player gets injured, it can sometimes be a blessing in disguise. The player can either come back with the same mindset or absorb the game as a spectator and learn where he should insert himself. Fox has not been very good at slowing down. He’s incredible in transition, but he’s mediocre in a half court offense (especially without the ball in his hands). He needs to watch Bogi carefully. Bogi is the smarter player and Fox is more physically gifted. If Fox can learn to be more patient with his moves and have more than one read (like Bogi is doing), then he could be the star that takes us far. I think he’s more than capable of doing this.
Bagley is more of a question mark. Nobody can deny his talent. He’s physically gifted and has nice touch (albeit on one side). He should be looking at how Holmes has found success. Pick your spots, set hard screens, and play with energy. He’s more talented and will be very successful if he just lets the game come to him (instead of forcing the issue).
