Hope you are right. Deni and Kispert can play some in the backcourt. That's still a huge rotation.

I hope you are right, but given the minutes and long leash Wes is giving him, I doubt it…

LMAO :lol:

I'm giving Kuz the benefit of the doubt there thinking it was the right basketball move for Kispert to take that shot - not that he was chasing a trip dub. Quite frankly, Kispert is on the floor because that's his shot, and he should have taken it - even if he was trying to be unselfish.

That's a great point. This team could really use better screeners.

Hope you are right. Deni and Kispert can play some in the backcourt. That's still a huge rotation.

Holiday is already sitting, & he's been marginally better than Neto.

It does seem that Beal/Dinwiddie/KCP could easily take up all the guard minutes (as I think nate suggested recently). That way, no need for Deni or Kispert to play the 2.

In fact, those three already combine to average a total of almost exactly 96 minutes per game. But, to this point KCP has played more minutes at the 3 than at the 2.

Given Kispert's recent emergence & Deni's play, maybe we don't need KCP to play much at the 3? Especially since I'm sure we'll want to give Rui a lot of minutes; some of them can be at the 3. Especially if Kuzma continues to average 33+ minutes at the 4.

How the f-ck did he know? He was just playing basketball and not chasing stats for Kuz. He'll get another shot.


Thank you!

Thanks but everyone in the damn near quiet as a church mouse arena was talking about it....including both teams.

People were close up saying Kuz get 3 more assist when he only had 7....this isn’t a winning ball club. People were not cheering for the win as much as the triple double....

Not saying it’s right but it’s a thing.

The wiz are like WWE right now.

Watching Neto and Din just go one on one until trapped all year has to tell you that the point guards on this team are not being coached up to play any form of winning ball.

I love the game and will continue to go (which makes me an enabler) but I’m not going to pretend these guys are working on anything sustainable.

Wes is new but you guys watching offensive one on one ball

and defensive breakdowns

Bertans pulling for 3 regardless of where he catches it

You guys corrected me (and I listened and read up and now agree) that Kuz is actually playing inefficient ball

Din just a guy...nothing special

Trez is our best and most consistent player

Gaff is good for what he is asked to do

Beal has fallen way off what he was last year

Neto thinks he is Kobe

If all this true... I should go and enjoy this for what it is and not loss it when they win against the worse team in the league and one of the players attempts to stat pad for the fans....

Just saying

It's just crazy to me that Neto had 14 shot attempts. I know he hit half his shots, but we really need a passing point guard. And I don't know what happened to his 3 point shot, but he's been abysmal from 3, even though most of his looks are wide open.
