Huge free throws by MaMo to make it a 4 point game. I love it when guys make their free throws. LOVE IT.

Only because there's nothing I fucking hate more than when guys don't make their free throws.

Unfuckingbelievable. Ish Smith and fucking Bullock making fucking shots like their Steph Curry. This is why you put teams away when you have a chance, you don't steal minutes. All it takes is a few lucky shots and you can turn a win into a loss. Fucking A. I didn't need the Pats game to be a rock fight and I didn't need this tonight after 3 nights of agony from the Red Sox.

Pistons played them much tighter tonight which should be expected after they got annihilated at home the other night. Pistons aren’t a bad team...wouldn’t be surprised if they’re a playoff team.

Smith should have been called for a fucking foul first. Almost cost Kyrie his fucking knees by letting that play out.

Tatum nails the free throws, Smart gets in the way, Irving snags the loose ball.

Eh, sometimes the other team just can't miss. Nice to win when that happens.

This team is so freaking good when everyone focuses and locks in. I wouldn't feel terrible if the playoffs were starting tomorrow.

Thursday night will be a great litmus test if Giannis plays. Can’t wait to see how they look in a game they’ll be extra “up” for.

Bucks smoked the Raptors even without the Freak
Thursday definitely a test.

I think what turned Kyrie's game around was the haircut. Reverse Samson effect.

I hope they see someon slip in the 2019 1st round and Danny trades Rwill. I lost it with that dumb play at the end of the first half. He's just too dumb to play on this team

Baynes with a +9, this guy is so underrated
And he really fills an important role when they go against a traditional center like Drummond or Embiid. Is there a place that tracks what Drummond’s rebounding was like with Baynes on the court v. Baynes odd the court?

In his limited minutes Baynes +/- probably leads the team. Aron changes the dynamic when he's on the floor. The defense improves and so does the offense, it was the same when Theis played his limited minutes. Brad is forcing this small ball lineup to start games for some odd reason. Not starting Gordon while he is on a minutes restriction and working his way back is the obvious answer.

Heck, the team that popularized small ball (GSW) doesn't even start the game with their Hampton 5

I only saw the fourth quarter. How is Gordon Hayward progressing? He missed a few shots, so I hope he gets better later in the season.

I think he looked really good. He missed a lot of shots but it looked like he was having no problem getting to his spots and getting good shots that just didn't fall. He also made a lot of slick passes and played pretty good defense. He got switched onto Blake a few times and mostly held his own.
