These back-to-back possessions with Treasured checking Kevin Porter Jr. on the perimeter might be my favorite sequence of the preseason up to now.

I loved seeing Malachi excel tonight, even when it was in opposition to fringe gamers. It wasn’t too way back when he was admirably filling in because the lead guard with Kyle and Fred calling it a season. This was absolutely a confidence booster.
D. Banton14 MIN, 9 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 0 STL, 4-5 FG, 1-2 3FG, 0- FT, 0 BLK, 2 TO, +12 +/-
It has been talked about earlier than, however it looks like he suits this staff higher than Malachi does. I’d like to see what Dalano can do for us defensively on the prime of a 3-2 zone or within the field and one.
D. Johnson13 MIN, 0 PTS, 3 REB, 0 AST, 1 STL, 0-3 FG, 0-3 3FG, 0- FT, 0 BLK, 3 TO, -6 +/-

We could not see Goran once more till the opener! That is the way in which.
The true work now begins for Nick. I’m curious to see how he handles the rotation for the ultimate curtain name.
Issues We Noticed
In previous years, the Raps typically struggled in opposition to youthful and fewer structured groups. I feel that lastly modifications this 12 months.
Bonga over Gillespie? That’s not good for everybody’s favorite midseason Tampa pickup.
With the starters possible sitting out or seeing little or no enjoying time for the remainder of the preseason, we’re about to see some messy however enjoyable youthful basketball.
