No local telecast of this one? According to the channel guide, there is no telecast on NBCSB, just the coverage on TNT tonight. Uggh. Not sure I've seen that this year, or at least I don't remember it. I thought Gorman and crew did every game, even when ESPN or another national outlet has it.

Chuck is making an absolute fool of himself, and clearly hasn't been watching the games at all. This is kind of sad/awkward/embarrassing to watch.

What the hell was that possession? Kyrie fumbles the ball up to Morris, who then drives to the hoop and misses the rim completely on the layup. Al is on the backside for the rebound and doesn't even seem to know it's coming. Leads to an open 3 on the other end.

Come on Tatum. You got Whiteside on a switch, take him to the hole. Don't make two dribbles and then settle for a 15 footer on the baseline.

After they start hitting shots after moving the ball, you can see them battle in their head (Kyrie, Tatum, Marcus x 2 ) whether to work the offense with passes or take a quick open shots because they have been hot - and then they start missing shots and let the other team catch up

I don't understand why Brad plays Kyrie after he brings in Gordon and Theis. Gordon runs the offense, and Kyrie just stands in the corner most of the time. If you really want to manage his minutes, just bring in Terry and let Gordon still run the offense, and you'll at least be better on the defensive end. I also don't know why he brings in Kyrie on the other end, while leaving Rozier on the floor running the offense. if Kyrie is in the game, the ball should be in his hands, IMO.

It’s going to have to be the Kyrie show tonight, which is like watching Iron Man, and that’s fine, but you’d rather watch the Avengers, where everyone is involved and has a role.

There's some nice stuff they potentially could do with Gordon & Kyrie combined. The thing is, there isn't any practice time right now, so they have to just try and work some of it out on the floor.

It's a way of "resting" him while he's still on the floor. He doesn't have to handle all of the playmaking load.

Why bother leaving Kyrie in for the full 12 if Terry is going to come in and “take over” anyway?
