    y'know...... Turner's shooting % must be pretty high. He hits that turn around, fade jumper .... a LOT !!

    He’s been playing well since starting. Honestly he’s looking like the guy he was in Boston, just with less responsibility. I’d still trade him in a second if an opportunity pops up.

    No kidding. Possibly the most pathetic shot I've ever seen in a basketball game, at any level.

    Unfortunately, it was a harbinger of things to come.

    See here is where Nurks inexperience should be noted. Collins grew up being coached fundamentals by his dad, a division one basketball player. Nurkic didn’t even start playing the sport until he was 15. Nurkic instincts for the game are actually pretty amazing considering how raw he really still is.

    Speaking of Collins, and this has probably been talked about since it’s so obvious; this was the perfect game to play him heavy minutes at either center or power forward. He’s athletic enough to guard Tucker and would’ve created mismatches offensively. He was playing well but of course robocop had to put Aminu back in there.

    Btw I die a little inside every time Aminu, Turner, and Davis are on the court together.

    I actually kinda think Meyers shoulda played. He's been working out every game day like mad just waiting for a shot and tbh, hasn't been that bad this yr in his limited time. With so many dead legs, he and Moe shoulda got some run. They both move the ball around a bit more than some of our dudes.

    Not me. I love me some Davis on the floor......... and Aminu should be out there unless he is resting.
