That was a fun one to attend.

Never felt threatened, a lot of really fun plays, swarming defense all night long.

Cannot say enough about Craig's leap. I don't know if it was McGee clogging the paint for him or if he just worked his butt off in the off season but he is sooooo much more confident this year. Up until Booker started cookin, Craig was the player of the game. He dominated that first quarter on both ends.

With Craig's resurgence, Payne, although currently out, seems back to where he was in 2020/21, Shamet has found his stride, Jock is solid, Biz still has it, Saric seems to be finding his legs again and Lee is a solid contributor (which makes sense, the dude did play 20 minutes a night for a title team, hard to believe no one offered him a real deal). This team has better depth than I anticipated.
