Well, in fairness, we took Mike Pence off their hands. Taking back Mahinmi is the least they can do.

The Jazz are really good, but I think we match up with them pretty well because we have good midrange shooters and 3-point shooters. Gobert's ability to shut down the lane won't be as much of a problem for us as it is for other teams.

It might be wise to play Jason Smith a fair amount at center to pull Gobert from the basket.

John Wall/Jason Smith high pick and roll would be difficult for Gobert to defend. If Smith is hitting his pick and pop, he'd get shots all day if he wanted.

I think the intensity will be there after losing Friday and getting to play at home. Once again it'll come down to the bench play. Would like to see smith on the floor longer then 4 minutes and Burke on the bench. Wiz 110-96.

From listening to Brooks media conference, it sounds like Satoransky is going to take Burke's minutes going forward. His reasoning is because Bojan gives us the shooting we needed. Let's see it.

Also said they might play together some :(

Won't be able to watch the game today. It's a big one -- don't want to lose 2 in a row & then face the Warriors.

Right the ship, guys!

You'd think Trey Burke would be up for this game but I doubt we see another BKLN game out of him. Time to handover reigns of Backup PG to Satoransky to get em ready for the playoff push. I honestly may take a look at Jordan Farmar as a 3rd PG. In this league Sato may be a 2/3 unless he improves his ball handling under pressure. What happened to Norris Cole? Solid defender adequate 3pt shooter in the Miami days

Also might take a flyer on Terrence Jones as a Rim Runner for 10-15 mins a game. More than we'd get from Ochefu.

Per Brooks press conf. Sato going fwd. If he even wants to give Burke 6 mins, just give it to Mac instead slowly develop him never know if you'll need em down the stretch

For those who watch press conference - any sign that EG wants to hired another PG. I'm not sold on Sato but we need at least 2.5 half quality PG's in case someone will be injuried. Time for a win.

Brooks only said "my job is to work with what we have and put them in best position to succeed"

Ben standig said he's been told that the wizards are looking for free agent help apparently.

I feel like they need to try benching burke, and letting tomas grunt it out at PG I think You need to play kelley at the 2, he can guard 2 guards he has the athletic ability and size to do it. Let him gun a bit at the 2 and see how he does. Play Bogdan at the 3 with him. I think you need tomas, you have Kelley who can shoot, you have bogdan who you brought into shoot, most of our 4's can shoot the 3 (Otto when he plays the 4 ,Morris smith and chris has a not terrible 3 ball. I just feel like tomas, while he is to timid right now, you need to just toss him in the deep end of the pool and see if he swims. Like if he can just give you a a little offence and stop dribbling the air out of the ball he can be a great back up point guard. Like he needs to just be more confident in his decisions with the ball, just play kid.

This dude is a good player, I expect him to have a long NBA career. He's managed to have a 111 offensive rating in his rookie season while just shooting 23% from deep, just wait until he adjusts to the NBA 3 point line. The name change only adds to his legend.
