It’s all about Moses Brown vs Embiid.

Is George Hill playing at least?

Brown/Bazley/Poku/Dort/Maledon should be a nice line up to watch

Odd he’s been out so long for an injury that no one really saw happen.I assumed he was ready to return a while ago but the thunder were being cautious.

Kinda wonder how long Baze's shoulder was bothering him before he went out. As someone with shoulder problems, that injury lingers forever if you don't do dedicated rehab. Hopefully that explains his terrible season.

I heard he fell in practice and that’s where the injury occurred. I like your idea better.

I don’t expect a ton out of Moses Brown, but catching simple passes is one of them

I think Bradley should start a few games

We have a lot of guys on this team that are couple of putting up big turnover performances.

Somewhat expected of young guys though?

I only caught the second half. How did Bazely play overall? Looked like he was being super aggressive.

Like an old man, I fell asleep at half time. So maybe between the two of us we can get a complete picture. He seemed to have some bounce in his step likely as a result of his first game back. Made some decent passes and not so decent ones. Players always look better when their shots go in. We’ll see if it can continue.

These games have been varying degrees of painful to watch. Last night's was particularly painful. Just looked like teams from entirely different leagues playing each other, like one of those exhibition games against a team from the Spanish ACB versus an NBA team or something.

Necessary evil, I suppose. I guess the bright side is at most, I can only see this happening next year post all star break if the team is out of playoff contention.

I've trained myself to embrace it for now but I have begun to wonder how fans of the perennial also rans like minnesota and sacramento manage to come back year after year. Those guys are typically actually trying to win which makes it even sadder to be honest.

I think fans stop watching and just check the boxscores. People with disposable income who go to the game are just there for the social aspect, not actually watching the game.
