Watching another game (against Minnesota where Bogey goes nuts).
For everyone wondering how he'll look, watch this video of Conley, Bogz is perfect to play off of him and we are going to have a nightmarish offense.
- Showed a variety of nice passes, behind the back bounce pass to a corner three, a few bounce passes out of traffic to the perimeter
- Not really scoring but putting pressure on the defense, defending a combination of Okogie and Wiggins and doing fine, stays in position, doesn't really try to get steals or blocks, just be in the right position.
- didn't really score, took a contested floater and missed, I think he hit the opening three but missed it
- checks in w/ 6:09 left
- immediately hits a layup off a nice cut
- hits a challenged three on a kickout
- he's playing power forward w/Sabonis out
- they have him running in to double KAT now, he moves really well, makes the right rotation after the ball is moved
- offball screen on the left side turns into Bogz turning the corner on the defender after getting the ball, knocking around smaller guys like they are ping pong balls and easily finishes with contact
- Saric tries to post Bogz up, gets forced out of the key and has to give it up
- KAT has 26 and the quarter isn't over, Bogz is keeping them in this
- takes Saric inside, loses the ball but recovers and kicks it to the corner for a three
- goes up for a layup on the break, Teague absolutely trucks him and he still finishes, misses the freethrow
- switches from Saric to Wiggins, stays in front of Wiggins no problem (also, god Wiggins sucks)
- has lost Saric cutting to the hoop twice, but it has ended in a turnover both times
- they are having Bogz be a screener to get Teague to switch on him, turns the ball over this time as Wiggins pokes it away from the weak side, but does a nice job backing Teague down...he's furious no one called wolf
- cleans up a miss on the fast break, runs it perfectly (great spacing) has been one of the first people on the break every time
- moves Okogie wherever he wants, runs him straight into an off ball screen, catches it open, taunts the defense and drills the open three
- immediately beats Wiggins down the court, fouled
- he had 16p in the first half, I thought he had 11 ... am I not watching this close?
- if you look away for a millisecond, he notices, back cut for a dunk, runs Wiggins right into Towns
- takes Okogie 1:1 can't get around him on his own but off of a pnr puts Okogie and Taj on an island, draws a third defender and kicks it out to the open shooter
- again, draws two defenders on a drive, moves it to the open man who is fouled
- tries to box out Towns but just not big enough to keep him off the glass
- Okogie overplays Bogie's cut, he comes off a flare screen and hits a three
- loses Wiggins on a back cut who overplays him coming up for 3
- close game w/3.5 mins left
- nails an open three on a kickout
- secures a rebound at a key point (Wolves within 5)
- just hits a rediculous reverse layup on a drive with a defender on his back and Towns challenging
- playing power forward again, making the right reads about who to box out (Taj vs. coming over and helping on Towns) not a good rebounder, but making some decent reads
- gets past Wiggins after not taking the screen, Wiggins goaltends and the foul
- misses the and1
- hits two freethrows to ice it
Bogz was fantastic in this game. If he hits a dumb defender he will absolutely annihilate them. Physical, extremely competetive. On defense he really isn't hurting you, but he's also not elevating your defense either, just kinda there, mostly in the right place. I absolutely love him, he's going to be great on this team. I don't know if there is another player in the league who plays so well within their limitations, he just knows what he can and can't do. 37pts 7rbs, split his time between the 3 and the 4. Also, absolutely punishes smaller defenders, he is really physical on his drives and does not care if someone comes up to challenge him.
