Not an easy L because of Hayward/Lamelo injuries but we should be fine.

Poku being able to dribble against a guard is huge but damn I'm scared it's gonna be really difficult for him to stay healthy...

This is fun. I wouldn’t be surprised if we get three more quarters of Poku heat checks.

For a guy that wasn’t supposed to be athletic, Theo makes some really surprising plays.

Moses Brown doesn’t look like an nba player lately.

Read on Twitter

Thunder twitter seems to think this is in response to Poku getting upset at a Maledon turnover, good to see Coach D call it out if that's the case

Theo gonna be a pretty good player on both sides of the floor. Probably needs to be way more athletic if he wants to be a starter in this league but his floor isn't that low. I can see him as the perfect back up PG for a championship team.

Poku’s attitude with his teammates has irritated me since fiba. For a dude that turns the ball over quite a bit, him shaking his head or throwing up his hands after someone else’s TO is super annoying.

I have NEVER criticized Poku or Presti for trading two FRPs to draft him.

Last few games showed why it makes perfect sense to rest SGA and play Poku/Maledon a lot. They are both improving (obviously with some bad games) and it's helping the tank.

It's not like we will rest SGA a lot next season (even less at home)

yeah if he keeps playing like that, I don't see why Presti wouldn't offer him a contract.

Hope Poku and Theo will feel tired tomorrow because it's a must lose game if we want to have a shot to finish with better lottery odds than the Cavs.

If our team stays healthy, next season should be a lot of fun (even if we don't get lucky in the lottery)
