    One big reason is that they're not willing to run the offense around him the way you have to with a star, so at that point it's better to just have 5 guys on the same page.

    Clearly Brad agrees.

    In an alternate universe, Kyrie could pretty much get a bucket every time down the floor.

    Tatum's threeball looks rougher than Smart's.

    Yeah, it goes against all of Brad's instincts and I get it, but at a certain point you need to be optimizing your star's minutes around that star.

    Different note: I like putting Hayward in for Tatum. This might ultimately be their best lineup in a couple months.

    That Kyrie-Horford dance was magic.

    You are right. The thing I think we as fans, with our crazy high expectations, dont see is that Brad is playing the long game this season. There really was no preseason so he has used the first half of the season working out rotations and seeing what he's got. I would expect more refined line-ups as the season wears on.

    That grab on Hayward is why we don't shoot free throws

    Good looking drive/dish by Jaylen. Nice to see.

    Gotta finish that though. Dunk it.

    Yeah, I think it’s definitely mental, which is the better of the two options. I watched some old highlights the other day, and the aggression difference is night and day. He’ll get better over time, he’s already well beyond a month ago.

    They called him on the weakest offensive foul taking it to the rim earlier in the game too. Just a total joke tonight.

    Probably needs to hire someone in the offseason and figure it out with game film etc. At this point I'm fairly sure it's something about how his game looks to refs, if that makes sense.

    Three times Jaylen has driven on Faried. All three times he got to the paint despite Faried riding him the whole way. Zero calls to show for it.

    I dont know what the answer is but I think its actually Jaylen talking to the refs versus Brad. Contrary to popular opinion, Stevens does jawbone the officials but I think the players have more pull when the address issues directly.

    The officiating is one-sided lots of nights. The next scandal is coming, because sheer incompetence only explains some of the calls and non-calls.

    Hayward with one of his brickfests tonight. At least he took it to the basket a lot.

    Yeah, if you showed me their past 3-4 weeks and I didn't know about the start of the year, I'd think they had picked up right where they left off in the playoffs.

    I think we should get a pick swap with the Nets every year, for old times sake. That was always so much fun. Who says no?

    I know it's garbage time, but it's unclear how the current lineup could score a point.

    Blowout as we thought. Huge test coming up on Wednesday. Indiana has had our number lately.
