Hey TimeLord, uh, hey, maybe let's NOT hang on the rim again, in the closing moments of a blowout? After the whistle has already blown? I'm not sure you (or us) want to sit around for another 40 minutes while Dumb and Dumber go out there and figure out how to use a socket wrench again.

I will forever regret saying JT's handles will not improve a few years ago.

I really think this team knows they have it and can turn it on when they want to. The problem being is they will just have nights where they don’t have the motivation cause they are playing in OKC on a Tuesday night.

I liked this one. It was a team effort. Tatum wasn't shooting well, but did everything else. Jaylen was in foul trouble, but when he needed to. Smart was a menace on defense, and a not fully healthy Luka didn't want that smoke.

But really, this one was about Grant, White and Brogdon. White played great with the starters, and then Grant and Brogdon went a combined +47 in their 53 minutes.

Yup, 100% agree. That's why I was never worried with their poor stretch recently

When Grant, White, and Brogdon play well, nobody beats us.

DWhite has shot 43.5% on 115 3Ps in wins. He has shot 20% on 45 3P in losses.

I'm sure everyone shoots worse in losses but when DWhite shoots well, the Cs are pretty hard to beat because the Jays generate so many open looks.

If I remember right, Luka only had one or two assists in the first half of the first Boston-Dallas game. He only had 3 assists total in this game. It's worked in both games: let Luka get his points but don't let everyone else get going.

@InstaFace, I thought something similar in the moment. But, if it allows him to gently return to the ground and spare his knee more impact, damn the torpedos and hang away, TL.
