Time to give Miles another chance at starting, in place of Hayward. Maybe he is figuring out what he needs to do. The guy turned 23 just this week.

No way, without Monk he 100% needs to play in the 2nd unit and bring that energy/ability to score to that group.

I assume Twin #1 will start if Gordo’s out. Hopefully Twin #1 just keeps it simple though and doesn’t try to do too much.

Eh I disagree. I know our bench would suffer but that’s up to JB to figure out a rotation that has some offense or playmaking on the court throughout the game. You don’t sub the entire second unit in at once, so I’d start Mikes to help make sure we don’t get behind early. We can’t be getting behind by 20 in the first quarter and expect to come back and win regularly. Play your best players the most and up front is what I think is our best bet.

You have Terry, Tae and PJ to be responsible for ensuring we don’t get behind by 20 in the first quarter.

Right - JB figures out the rotation that has offence and playmaking on the court, which is why Miles should stay in the 2nd unit.

Then you’re also not playing out starting PF and back up PF together to start the game.

I see both sides. I’m just super paranoid about not having enough fire power out early. Just an overall crap position with these guys out.

Having three of our five most potent scoring options (Ball, Hayward, Monk) out at the same time and just leaving two others (Rozier and Graham) is just brutal.

Potent scoring and Miles are two things that should not be in the same frame of reference

Good.


Miles is on the All-Athleticism No-Offensive-Aggression starting lineup

Well it'll be interesting to see what Miles looks like when he's depended on for offensive production. His TS% is top on the team since the ASB, he needs to be able to increase volume without cratering his efficiency. Good litmus test to see what type of player he's capable of being on a nightly basis.

Miles will be extension-eligible in a couple months, now feels like "put up or shut up" time. Last game was a nice start.

Read on Twitter


Best when it comes to finishing at the rim, but has the least amount of drives so doesn’t get there enough.

Paging DY Nasty. DY Nasty to centre stage please...

Less than half as many drives as Hayward and triple the athleticism

Turrible

im not crazy i promise :lol:

Spoiler:
its still mindboggling how devonte is a starting, volume shooting PG and he's completely adverse to driving despite how often he has the ball


its obvious that miles is modeling his game after old and busted draymond and its just an awful, awful decision imo. dude needs to stop thinking so much and start launching himself at the rim. his tov% is still higher than his usg% too.

Is that Devonte 10% Rim FG a typo? :lol:
