    Hell of a win! Nas was great! Worth the price of admission! Keep the win streak going! Justise Gary and Nas are going to change the bench production big time.

    Nas bench scoring can hopefully do wonders. GPII also so proactive in defence, looking good very good.

    Both of them stay healthy and we can hopefully squeeze into playoffs and have a good go at the first round.

    Great to see Nas back and being very active. 3-5 from '3' right out of the gate was impressive as well.

    great to see, but what I really liked is that he blocked a 3 attempt! We really need that type of effort and ability on defense.

    "Can hopefully squeeze into the playoffs"

    You realize the difference between 4th and 11th is so small, right? Lol. There's so many games left, nothing is decided lol.

    Nas getting 10-12 a game would be huge IMHO.

    Last year was almost 10 before they shut him down. He probably won't get that many looks. Might get back up to 8 a game? 22 games this year he is at 5.7 PPG.

    Payton is 4-4 on 3-pointers. Drew Eubanks is 3-4 on 3-pointers. They both look good shooting from the corner.
    I think the TV crew said Nurk is 50%+ from his spot near the middle of the 3-point line.
    Strangely (to me), Jabari Walker is 3-16 on 3-pointers. Does Eubanks have better shooting form than Walker? Not being able to hit those at least around 36 percent will be a big problem for him if he can't figure it out.

    I think Walkers biggest problem is Rookie jitters, indecision, and over thinking on his threes.

    Walker, Keon and Watford are not going to play when Winslow gets back so they need to use this small sample size to figure out what they need to work on.
