Wait how is it that a game thread has not yet been started? Hoodwink the Hornets!
Crush Charlotte. Or just win. I'll take a win any way I can get it.
Baynes starting and Hayward to the bench. Somewhere benhogan just fainted.
I called for it this morning too. HRB made some very good points against it but idk...I feel like this might work. This lineup is just so much more familiar with each other.
I hope it's as much, if not more, meant to reduce Rozier's playmaker role on the second unit. Dude has been taking a ton of bad shots without even looking to get people involved. Maybe playing off ball will help him find himself again. I'll be pissed if he is still bringing up the ball and ignoring Hayward.
Who approved this uniform combo?
"Get that WEAK SHIT out of here!" ~ Aron Baynes
I'd rather live one day as a lion than 1000 years as Jeremy Lamb.
dont give the ball up for a Baynes 3
Ah yes. Just what we all wanted, tons of Baynes FGA to include an early clock three. That's what we were missing...
Jaylen still got D!
Horford immediately loves being at the four and getting the smaller guys sealed down low
Snark aside, they look much better out of the gate. Scal and Mike seem to agree, too.
have we seen this Tatum/KI/Gordon/Al/Mook lineup before?
I was definitely being snarky about it, but I'm not seeing a huge improvement honestly. Maybe a bit? Still tied with a meh Hornets team with the same exact problem of just missing shots
we're just throwing away the rebounds we do get now? wtf?
What is going on w Morris’s rebounding?
I've seen that more from this team than I can remember
B-Ref has them at just under 12 minutes together and a +49.5 net.
Last 10 minutes or so of the Toronto OT win last week.
oh riiiigght! and someone called JB/Smart/Rozier the Three Sulkateers. I member now.
We’ve looked pretty bad since Hayward came in.
Maybe we'll at least get 20. Yet another first quarter we'll be losing though.
Cool. We suck again.
I see Brad still refuses to play two bigs together.
2/7 from 3, 28%. These things need to start falling eventually!
I know he made it but when does Smart ever shoot anything without complete confidence, Scal?
Alright these refs can fuck off at this point
that's it get that value back up
This is just like the worse case scenario with Hayward, isn't it? Healthy enough to play so we cannot get his money off the tax, but he isn't good enough to really contribute.
If Hayward can’t even make wide open threes he really shouldn’t be out there.
Might need to switch Hayward and Williams...
Jaylen is the king of the almost-poster.
clang clang clang
Alright Terry I see you!
Terry looking like last year for the first time.
Scary Terry making an appearance!
when did Tony Parker get old?
I can’t tell whether or not to be happy when Tatum makes a long two.
Like 7 years ago.
I mean, if the metric for the team this year is making wide open threes, then Kyrie and Tatum would be the only ones playing lol
Edit- add Morris
I like this Rozier.
Sorry what was the foul there on Al?
Why is that a foul on Rozier, but Kyrie did the same exact thing to Zeller on the other end and he didn't get a call
Kyrie initiates as much interior contact as any guard and gets nothing.
I know it's a game thread, but maybe we can wait a couple months before declaring him not good enough
Literally one game removed from a plus game against the top team in the conference.
