Guys made it more of a run than I expected. That’s 5/6 losses. Yuck.
Ayton balled out. I wish he was a slightly better on ball defender against bigs who can drive. He wouldn’t constantly be in foul trouble against the zions and giannis of the league. I also wish when he was cooking like today monty would get the hell over himself and pump him the ball.
Bridges showed up early but disappeared late. And his vaunted defense is still MIA. McCollum is a good player but he went off.
Jock just isn’t very good.
Craig is playing his heart out. Took a beating last two games on zion. Wish jones could get off his duff and find us a legit 4.
Paul didn’t look great tonight, but I think it’s funny everyone criticizing his shooting a game after he nailed 6/9 threes. He’s still outta shape and I doubt he’s as consistent as he was the last two season, but he will still bring it now again. No way this squad ekes into OT had he not played today.
I said it last year, that Pels team is VERY good. When they have zion and ingram playing I’m unsure there’s a team in the league that matches their star power and depth. They just keep running 6’8 guys out there that are long, defensive, and can drain threes.
