    CP3 with 16 assists on 0 turnovers. Just ridiculous.

    Wonder what the single game record for that is.

    Edit: Looked it up and the record is 20 and it happened a total of 4 times (CP3 did it in 2016 and the last time before that was in 1984).

    I wanted to post a couple more videos of the Cam Johnson dunk because watching Frank Kaminsky running behind the the basket is hilarious.

    It's almost as good as the dunk. We have to name this dance!

    And for those that missed it, Mikal's defensive presence in OT:

    Great 4 or so minutes there for Mikal. Love watching Mikal become more comfortable on offense. He is averaging 17 PPG in the last 9 games and has been scoring in a multitude of ways.

    Chris Paul describes Mikal Bridges with a smile on his face.

    He’s pretty consistent in sealing his defender, getting position and catching passes. He struggles with finishing. Ayton struggles with the first three skills.

    Bingo. Give Frank a mismatch, especially a smaller guy and he can at least get position. Doesn’t mean he’ll finish but he knows how to use his body to advantage when switches happen.

    Ayton still struggles to seal a guy, whether they’re big or small. And his confidence still comes and goes even when he does get the ball down on the block, where he actually has an advantage on almost every one he faces.

    that DOESNT mean Frank is a better player. It’s just mindboggling to me that Ayton doesn’t have that skill set considering his size and athleticism advantages over Frank.

    It was such a startling juxtaposition to watch the team kinda sleepwalk through four quarters and then transform into VOLTRON in overtime. I mean, the blitz of the first few minutes was almost shocking in how almost violent it was. It was like a bully knocking a little kid down and taking his halloween candy.

    They are so confident now that they know how to finish games I think sometimes they forget to apply it. At this point its all experience and we need all we can get.

    That's probably the best way I've seen it described. Had this game been in January then they probably would have choked it away but they know what they need to do now and suffer from looking past opponents like the Cavs. They don't put forth maximum effort until they have to when facing lottery teams.
