Jesus, Jaylen is playing out of his skull tonight.
Can't wait for Brad to ice Jaylen and barely play him in the second half.
who is this guy wearing #7?
He's found ways to add value without the 3 needing to go down, which in turn takes pressure off the 3. He also clearly feels way more comfortable that he's going to get his touches in these lineups in the normal flow of the offense.
Reminds me of all those "meaningless" wins the Champion Sox had against bad teams.
Why would he do that? Brad has clearly been going out of his way to find ways to engage Jaylen; it's just been a challenge.
You know what I like? Jaylen has played 12 consecutive minutes, and Brad didn't yank him.
Hoping he's still in there when they come out of the break.
Yep. And then they will lose and someday we will all be dead too!
He can not leave the floor...have him play 40minutes tonight
Otoh Gordon looks real bad. But baybay jaylen is bae 2nite
He's being guarded by Maxwell Smart.
I love having Marcus Smart of my team
Is there a reason Horford played 7 minutes and hasn't been seen since, with Theis and Yabu taking his minutes?
Yabu is back...and he's back bad
They probably don't have a wide angle camera available
To be fair, Aldridge is a tough cover for a veteran defender. Yabu at least has some, er, heft, to make him work. As I noted, Yabusele is thicccccccccc
This game should not be basically tied. Ugh
First unit coughs it up.
i'm just pleased he got as much as he did
Alfred J Horford
Kyrie --->>> Al!
the whole concept of playing Al for 30mins at the 5 was flawed from Day 1
HOW DOES TATUM NOT GET THAT FOUL CALL TO THE BODY? HOW?
He got the make up one. Caps off brother!
Why is smart taking a Kyrie three??? Sigh
its the spurs tho. i wasnt expecting a chicago bull-ing. were you?
Nope, I just feel like we've been the significantly better team so far. Was hoping for a bigger buffer for their run is all.
The Baes are Back
How bout dat awarebess by tatum on the block
It's unbelievable how much contact people get away with on these guys. Tatum literally can't get to the line.
Love Tatum when he goes to the rim.
Tatum’s quick hands on the blocked shot was impressive.
once Kyrie gets treated like a superstar, it's over for you hoes
Kyrie looks like he left his game in Memphis. Thank Red for Jaylen showing up tonight. And for Marcus Smart. We should thank the tiny baby Jesus for him as well.
The C's do not get foul calls when opponents hit them in the body. It just doesn't happen. I don't understand it, can't explain it, but it's like the only time they can get a foul call is when it's on the arms. If I were an opposing coach, I'd tell my guys to body the absolute shit out of the C's every time they went near the hoop.
I really liked that half. Lots of good shots that didn’t fall too.
agreed. Just want Yabu out there setting screens on whoever is covering Ky/Tatum. On defense, like Theis, play super aggressive and at least make LeMarcus work
The defense was locked in, and the offense wasn't settling. They usually win when those two things are true.
Harden had 28 points in the first half tonight. He is en fuego right now.
I want to see Jaylen get big minutes until he either needs a rest, or starts playing poorly. Let's build his confidence on a night like this when he has it going on.
Yep. I didn’t catch the entire first half but it looked to me that Horford wasn’t doing much better defensively on Aldridge than Yabu.
Yeah, but that's against Memphis, and they're not a real team.
Edit: Should also note he's already 9/13 from the free throw line and 5/7 from 3. The C's have 9 free throws as a team, but I guess Harden must have been more aggressive than they were going to the hoop, or something.
He also has eight assists and five boards. Again, at the half. Dude is peaking right now.
Let him lead this team to victory tonight and get his mind right
No time like Dec 31 for a peak amirite
Aldridge has 15 points, but in fairness, he's 6/15 from the floor. I think the C's will let him shoot all night long if he's only going to make 40% of them.
That depends on what kind of game you are playing!
