P. Achiuwa18 MIN, 5 PTS, 8 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 2-3 FG, 0-1 3FG, 2- FT, 0 BLK, 1 TO, +5 +/-
Although his beginning spot is in jeopardy, we’d like Treasured to search out his confidence once more. His bounce and flexibility would have been useful tonight however he has clearly misplaced the belief of the teaching workers.
O. Anunoby37 MIN, 23 PTS, 6 REB, 5 AST, 1 STL, 10-21 FG, 3-7 3FG, 0- FT, 1 BLK, 0 TO, -5 +/-
It might have been nice to see OG knock that sport winner down. Probably the most spectacular half has been his skill to learn the place the assistance is coming from. I can’t wait till this new and improved model of him performs with Pascal.
S. Barnes38 MIN, 14 PTS, 10 REB, 4 AST, 0 STL, 7-19 FG, 0-0 3FG, 0- FT, 2 BLK, 1 TO, +5 +/-
Scottie was lacking one thing tonight. His loopy contact across the rim wasn’t there, however we are able to’t fault him contemplating the hand harm. There’s a parallel universe on the market the place Scottie efficiently suggestions that sport winner in and his legend continues to develop.
F. VanVleet37 MIN, 18 PTS, 6 REB, 6 AST, 1 STL, 6-18 FG, 4-8 3FG, 3- FT, 0 BLK, 3 TO, -3 +/-
All the things was fairly strong up till that questionable shot from three late. He guess on himself, and it didn’t work out. Everybody might be higher when Pascal returns, however Freddie would be the one who advantages probably the most, even when it’s simply to cut back his minutes and workload.
G. Trent Jr.37 MIN, 17 PTS, 2 REB, 1 AST, 6 STL, 7-14 FG, 3-4 3FG, 0- FT, 2 BLK, 3 TO, -5 +/-
Gary continues to impress. He hit well timed pictures early and saved us going when our offense stalled. And his consecutive stops on Sexton within the closing seconds have been good.
C. Boucher7 MIN, 1 PTS, 1 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 0-2 FG, 0-1 3FG, 2- FT, 0 BLK, 1 TO, -4 +/-
I really feel unhealthy for Chris. He’s on the market overthinking issues. It might be an absolute luxurious to have the tremendous assured participant we noticed final 12 months in Tampa, however we’re not even getting sufficient play from him proper now.
Ok. Birch30 MIN, 4 PTS, 8 REB, 2 AST, 0 STL, 2-8 FG, 0-1 3FG, 0- FT, 2 BLK, 0 TO, -6 +/-
Birch gave us his all tonight. I do know he missed a couple of straightforward pictures all through the sport however he completely battled in opposition to the unreal size Cleveland has at its disposal. That dive for the unfastened ball late is one thing we most likely pay extra consideration to had we come away with the win. We most likely get blown out with out his hustle and willingness to field out.
M. Flynn7 MIN, 5 PTS, 0 REB, 1 AST, 3 STL, 2-2 FG, 1-1 3FG, 0- FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, +4 +/-
Since placing up additional pictures on the SBA a couple of video games in the past, Malachi has flashed glimpses of what we noticed final season. It’s extremely entertaining to observe our younger guys battle it out. This season has been enjoyable.
D. Banton10 MIN, 11 PTS, 2 REB, 1 AST, 0 STL, 5-7 FG, 0-1 3FG, 2- FT, 0 BLK, 1 TO, +5 +/-
He seemed good within the minutes he was on the ground, however Nurse opted for a bit extra taking pictures tonight to counter how crowded it was within the paint. We might get an prolonged battle for the back-up level guard position in any case.
S. Mykhailiuk19 MIN, 3 PTS, 2 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 1-5 FG, 1-3 3FG, 0- FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, -1 +/-
I assumed we might see a bit extra of Svi tonight however Scottie performed almost 40 minutes as a substitute. He didn’t have it going offensively however he’ll definitely bounce again.
Nurse tried a couple of various things tonight and had it not been for a couple of missed “gimmies” on the rim, we might be arguing that the group and training workers put forth a gutsy efficiency. Pascal and Yuta have to return ASAP, if something simply to decrease everybody’s minutes.
We’ll go together with a B because it’s not like Nurse had anybody on the bench to match up with Mobley and Allen’s size. He may additionally want to start out trusting the bench a bit extra, however I perceive why he doesn’t in the intervening time.
Issues We Noticed
This was the primary time I received to observe Mobley play a full sport within the NBA, and wow. He’s a real unicorn. If he continues to play like this, I’d perceive if he gained rookie of the 12 months over Scottie Barnes. Right here’s to Scottie recruiting him down the highway and we take a look at tonight as the primary time Mobley scored two factors for us.
