Juancho shot the ball every time he touched it. It only takes one not with the program

How the heck did that third string go -7 in 30 seconds? I blinked and missed it.

I get what Udoka is thinking. He wants to give Tatum more opportunities for rest like he did in the Cavs game when the Celtics blew a 19 point lead late. But damn the bench can be brutal at times especially the third stringers

They don't guard baseline 3. I've been mentioning the last few game threads cuz I see it so much. They have two guys collapse and there is always a guy wide open.

I think he’s starting to learn and see how easy it can be for him to have better shooting nights and see the team become more successful if he becomes this type of passer.


No doubt Tatum will get there because he's just not the selfish type.

And Kanter isn't a good passer out of the post/paint. He's like Thompson that way. Any score he gets is via postups or putbacks.
