Do yourself a favor and just watch the second half of Q3, worth it.

We threw that zone at them and they looked all kinds of discombobulated. Nice wrinkle by Borrego.

Wound up watching the entire Wizards broadcast early this morning while caffeinating -

- Yeah, that Q3 stretch was pretty.

- We dodged a bit of a bullet. Wiz aren't going to shoot 19% from 3 next time we see 'em.

- Harrell and Gafford got in a season's worth of flexing.

- One of the Wiz announcers when asked about Oubre's hair - "He looks like he's on the run."

- Melo trying to get Bouk to shoot at the end was gold.

- Overall we took care of business against a well balanced team that's also playing very well. Not a lot to hate.

We throw a zone at teams every game and usually they light us up from 3 - which is why we are league worst, or near league worst, from 3 point makes allowed!

It just so happened that in this game the Wizards were stone cold from 3.

I've lost track of the number of times fans from other teams getting to listen to him talk about how much they loved it.
My picks:
2020 Draft (3rd pick) - Tyrese Haliburton, Devin Vassell, or Onyeka Okongwu
2021 Draft (11th pick) - Moses Moody

I can't remember who it was, but during a game earlier this year some opposing fan came either into our game thread or the GD game thread and said the Hornets (Collins) announcers were terrible.

I was legitimately offended.

Funny how this works - I recall the same thing. Lots of posters ragging on our crew until they started getting a little media shine and then, wham, diddly dee, thank you Eric - they're beloved.

that was great 2nd half. glad to see jb/team finally putting together some good stretches of defense. if we can keep up the defense, watch out.

nick was huge in his minutes. i dont hate him at all.

oubre is just amazing or awful. no in-between...

as long as the core can stay healthy, we definitely look like a playoff team now that defense is showing up.
