GAME DAY, BALA! GAME 37: SPURS AT BULLS, 17-3-2021, 7PM (CT)

Our RRT continues on the East swing as we pit our better play versus a surging young team. While they'll be playing a second game in as many nights, we'll be without our leading scorer and facilitator. We will have to start strong and stay resilient; impose our D-out transition game and run back with the same hustle; make every possession count with newer players stepping up. Movement and mindset for purposeful play are key.

Another slow tentative start by everyone not named Jakob. Lonnie's nice drive is a flicker of light. Let's get it going, Spurs!

Well. Another slow start and we got less confident and tentative and it rolled on both ends.

Most of our shots have been front of rim misses, and up until late we were not driving hard at them. We are getting foul calls, but not making these well either (8-12).

Meanwhile, we keep miscommunicating on their P&R's, we get three Spurs under they basket and the get open shot after open shot. Lonnie's not rotating well.

DJ's taking too many shots he's missing. Everyone's missing, and then finally Derrick (along with Keldon, as always) drove right into their bodies.

They keep backing us down in our key. We're afraid of fouling, especially our bigs as we don't have a lot of bigs to begin with, but we did collapse better as the game progressed.

We have to go hard at them on both ends plain and simple.

I was about to make a rage post about Derrick White playing like ass. Then he took the headband off and turned back into Derrick White.

That was as excruciating early to middle as it was satisfying middle to end! OH YEAH!!!

I can't believe we pulled that off, we need to be more consistent
