Shai looks good. Brooklyn’s defense, not so much.

If diallo can play like this outside New York then I’ll be impressed.

can we start losing plz?

At least SGA had a great game. Love Hill trying to mentor him as well (he's no CP3 but it's still good)

That was entertaining to watch. Brooklyn really sucks defensively. Nice to see Shai, Dort and Diallo well. Bazley looks very frustrated. Maybe a sophomore slump.

Lol baze has played 2 bad games.

Too bad cupcake has never played with a pg as good as 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.

More like five bad games. He’s shooting 28% from three this year. He’ll come around but I think he’s three point struggles are probably real.

It’s one of the reasons I love this kid. He should probably celebrate with some ice on his hip.

Also, gotta give it up to Dort. I’m becoming a believer. He’s clearly putting in the work.

Did anybody got stuck comparing the difference in quickness between Durant and Poku? I couldn't ignore it. Durant has Poku's length, Roby's quickness and first step, and Shai's skills with the ball. Durant is bizarre.

I once saw a story from his time at Kentucky where Cal said the same thing essentially, that SGA was the most committed person on the whole roster. (A roster of blue chippers at that school to boot).

I did notice that now that you mention it. He stands eye to eye but Durant just blows right by people whereas most guys that size are moving in sand comparatively.

I feel cautiously optimistic we may have actually found something with Roby. He's not a perfect player but he does a lot of the little things, and not a complete stiff with the ball either.

Right after an Achilles tear.

I like him too, but he seems lost in this offensive scheme, like many other players. He's in a similar level of chemistry with the team and schemes than Poku, which is worrisome for a third season guy. In this offense either you can drive to the basketball, or you won't see many shots.

I miss CP3 badly.
