Wait... are we up by 5??? Why don't you all quit your whining?
Yeah missing too many easy layups at the basket
On his way towards a triple double by the looks of it. Also, Dame is way better than CJ, it’s not a debate. CJ is a great player but them together is redundant. We need a legit wing.
Pretty much Nurk's only weakness is finishing in close. The guy has an amazing nose for the ball and off the charts BB IQ>
And hacking the shit out of motherfuckers and not getting called for it
Our bigs needs slow down under the bucket we should have over 20 point lead.
Dame's only triple double was against the Rockets.
A lot of it is down to the way they defend the arc but it’s been annoying that all three games so far have been opponent three point barrages where they’re making them at a good clip. It’s an annoying brand of basketball to watch.
I think a read a stat somewhere where teams shoot an extraordinarily low % at the rim against the Rockets relative to what you would expect. Not sure if players just rush their shots because they think bringing the ball down low will get it stripped, but our guys just need to take their time.
I'm not sure how many more times Lillard is going to have a subpar first half that people flip out about only to have a great second half before people start to understand that the game is more than 24 minutes and more than just points. It blows my my that people still doubt Dame.
We are wide eyed and rushing shots inside, just need to slow down, focus, and use our size.
So you guys saying Dame is playing for Stats against his nemesis Westbrick?
Rockets are "small" but they're strong. That's part of it too.
I still can’t get over the play late where Melo was stripped going up and came back down with the ball and the ref called traveling. IT WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU!
Yeah probably because they're playing teams that are playing fast and shooting a lot of 3s because they're playing from behind.
It's not even finishing because he can do that and do it well. He just rushes it sometimes. He used to always just flick it up as fast as he could, he's getting better about having more intention with his shots inside but he still has improvement to make.
Westbrook isn't Dame's nemesis. It's the other way around.
People, as in Trolls and Snowflakes?
