TJ Warren has played 30 minutes already and taken 20 shots
Booker has played 28 minutes and taken 19 shots
Bridges has played 30 minutes

Tatum and Kyrie are at 26 minutes each and 16 and 14 shots respectively. I really wish Brad would extend these guy's minutes on games where we are shorthanded like this, at least.

If Brad does that, they'll each play 35-36 minutes. I don't see it happening. Brad has to get these guys their rest. Fuck the regular season.

The fact that they just had like 4 days off doesn't seem to matter, I guess.
Playing over 35 would kill them, clearly. Ideally it won’t matter in the spring if the team is at its full potential, but it would be great to have home court for at least one series.

Fast break, 2 on 1, ball finds Terry who stops the ball, kicks it back to Kyrie. Never even considered a, you know, layup.

I know people here have been screaming about Al playing too much 5 this year but this is a game where you see what he adds in that position. Williams is a great contester of shots but is constantly out of position on the boards. Theis isn’t that much better.

Why can't Al play the 4, with Williams or Baynes or Theis at the 5? I think that's what everyone is asking for when they say they don't want Al at the 5.

Al can’t chase around stretch 4s all game, which almost every 4 now.
Since when do they chase anything around? Right now, he plays the 5, and within 3 seconds on every defensive possession, the other teams runs a pick and roll with the 5, and he ends up guarding the 1 or the 2, because they switch everything.

I never thought Time Lord would be a good free throw shooter. I admit that idea never even entered my mind. In fact, I was expecting that we'd see some Hack-A-Time-Lord if the situation presented itself down the road.

Time Lord can’t shift the time space continuum to make free throws fall.

Kyrie has had a lot of bad turnovers tonight. Narrowly escaped another there. I feel this has been a recent pattern.

Good job Smart. I was yelling at Kyrie to call a timeout.

By the way, where is Kyrie going there? That was ugly. Almost Terry-like.
