Would have been nice for Rozier, Graham and Washington to not suck ass though.

If it hadn't been for Bridges, Zeller and Hayward (before he went out) we'd have been pooched.

More likely to be due to high-performance shoes with poor ankle and especially foot protection. There's a reason old-time players wore high-top shoes.

There are some things this season that I never would have predicted. Ball playing like he did is at the top of that list. Second on the list is Cody legit having minutes taken by Biz at any point in the season. Truly bizarre, and I'm hoping Cody gets back in the rotation and we give all of Biz's minutes to small ball C PJ.

No idea how we can beat the Celtics without Hayward, Ball, and Monk but this team always surprises me. Road trip halfway over just need to survive this month and get healthy.

On a sidenote the Wanamaker trade for tonight anyway has turned out genius.

They get two entire days off after the Boston game. That hasn't happened since the all-star break.

Miles Bridges is one freakishly gifted human being. I don't want to see anymore 4 point 2 rebound games in 28 minutes. Punish people, even if your shots aren't falling.

This. Really needs to stay this aggressive going forward. If Gordo's out, think he'd start at the 3? Or would JB throw Cody Martin in there :lol: :lol: :lol:

Really, really big win tonight. Zeller and Miles were just huge lifts off the bench. Zeller seemingly taking his reduced role personally. JB lit a fire under him and he's responding. Awesome.

Wanamaker was very solid! For a free player, he's really nice for our guard depth. I'd rather have him out there than a Martin twin any day of the week tbh.

Crazy how we won this handily with Tae and T-Ro shooting how they did. Since Melo's been out, we've (generally) been holding teams to lower totals. It's how we have to win now.

Great bounce back game, another sign this team can be legit. Every time Indy made a little run to get back into it in the 3rd/4th the Hornets answered with a little push of their own. I just hope Gordo isn't too gimpy now, we're running out of guys at this point.
