I agree. But... Neto I think!

Gotta be Gafford while Bryant eases back from that ACL injury.

Neto reminds us why AAU doesn’t develop the best talent. This guy should not be in nba based on measurables- Neto is just all heart and hustle. Bonga has all measurements

Ish, Neto and Gafford just merked the Cavs. That was embarrassing.

What is the record since Gafford has been in the lineup? 12-2? It's a no-brainer, but of course if Brooks is back, he'll go with the same rotation and throw in Bryant for Len. At this point, I would bring back the cheaper alternative Len instead of Lopez.

It was so nasty- it really felt like the wiz were like a much better team.


This is the first time I felt like it was comfortable


GSW and even Lakers could have gone anyway- tonight it was like it was close because we were just waiting for them to miss 2 shots in a row

Wow. The Celtics were down 77-48 to the Spurs at halftime, but somehow forced it into overtime.

That third quarter was a thing of beauty. Great, flowing basketball. Relentless defensive pressure.

Fun.

And btw, the front court combo of Gill and Gafford is really good.

I like TB too. But I mean, come on. Gafford is a massive difference-maker inside. He’s a critical piece of this turn-around. TB is nice and improving, and it’ll be good to get him back. But this team has needed a guy like Gafford for years and years and years now.

Kevin Love is horrible. Westbrook probably leads the league in bone-headed plays, but at least he gives a crap. Even when he wasn't playing well, he was giving 110%. Love is just cashing checks.

On both teams, I think you can see the impact on the young guys of having a guy like Westbrook vs Kevin Love.
Can't say I do.

Agreed. Bonga has some moments on defense but the dude has no idea what is going on on the offense end of the game. Certainly not the caliber of defensive player to make up for that massive shortcoming. I have no idea what the advanced numbers say, but the eye test says it all.

So if RHJ doesn't have a place in the league neither does bonga and I'm ok moving on.

Good game and damn I am loving this team!

Bonga is not an NBA player and I am baffled by his support.

They did what good teams are expected to do. I think this means
we are a good team. Ish Smith played great last night. In fact,
I think the only player who didn’t play well was Hutch. Gill was
the frosting on the cake.

Bonga has the body but shows no instincts of feel for the game. Bonga might be a great guy but he is in the nba because he was blessed with the body and the mind that allow him to replicate the game of basketball... Bonga is the opposite of Neto....

I would get lin or Austin rivers and let bonga go - at least they PLAY basketball and can score. Watching him is disheartening

Austin Rivers is not a particularly good basketball player, by NBA standards.
