Can't tank with shai
“If you're getting stops and you're making threes and the other team's not scoring, that's when you're going to see a huge point difference there,” coach Billy Donovan said.

Post game thoughts-

Dort- who would have thought he would be our most consistent player?

Diallo- we should have left him in the game. He’s an amazing tank commander. Just some incredibly dumb shots.

Bazley- cold, hot, cold.

Shai- see my comments from every game thus far.

Theo- something about Theo has been bugging me and I finally figured it out. He avoids contact like the plague. He doesn’t drive to the basket if anyone is in front of him. If someone sets on a screen on him, he avoids it’s by several feet. Once I finally realized what he was doing it was pretty blatant. I’m guessing the physicality of the nba is an adjustment but this needs to change.

Muscala- he’s just a really likeable player.

Horford- it’s good we want to lose and don’t need any more assets.

I didn't get to see it, but it sounds like Baze had himself a game. 20 and 12 aint bad.

So this ankle that Jerome is coping with must really be something.

He had 11 straight points to start the third. He got hot and was pretty confident. He was pretty cold the rest of the game. Kind of a strange performance but still a good one.

Im guessing maybe a high ankle sprain like Morant has that knocks you out for 3-5 weeks.

Muscala is criminally underrated. There's no doubt he's a 25+ MPG player. I don't understand his subutilization.

I suspect George Hill and Theo Maledon aren't sharing minutes enough. Is this just an impression, or fact? I think it would help Maledon a lot. Should play Hill less with the first and more with the second unit.

I haven't looked into the numbers, but my eye test has had the opposite impression of muscala. Especially on the defensive end, it feels like we hemorrhage offensive rebounds and he never gets in front of anyone.
