Parker is the third best PG on that team now. Dejounte Murray is the best PG on the team now. 6'5" incredibly athletic. A defensive monster for both steals and blocks with 19 steals and 8 blocks over his last nine games. Problem with Murray is he can't shoot straight.
If he gets that fixed he is a potential all star. Very big IF of course.

Leonard is a big loss, but San Antonio more than any other team seems to be able to just plug in players and keep rolling. When Popovich retires they should just make the coach of the year award the Popovich Award. I don't know how they do it. I never want to play San Antonio no matter who is missing.

The road uniforms look way better than the home ones. Half of my season is saved.

Butler gave up the shot at the rim to give Taj a 3 point attempt?

We look a little out of sync on both ends, but we're taking 3s.

Maybe featuring Taj a little too much...

Butler. Are you kidding me? That will be on his season highlight reel.

Too many contested long 2 early in the clock.

Defense has been bad, Teague has been particularly awful.

Yeah, Teague, ugh. Looks really out of sync.

The wolves looked better when Butler was initiating the offense and not Teague. I liked Tegue but he's not off to a good start.

Gibson is at his best when he is not featured. Even then, small spurts and tends to fade in the second half.

That short preseason schedule probably hurts us early. No flow at all.

Tyus looks way better on both ends than Teague so far...

I prefer Rubio over Teague for this team, but he (Rubio) isn't exactly making history for the PG-starved Utah team tonight.

Meanwhile Tyus looking more aggressive than he's ever been. Hmm.

I have to try hard to put away my anti-Teague bias, but man, I just don't understand what we saw there.

He's an older, shorter Wiggins, without the athleticism

The Tyus/Crawford backcourt has really stabilized us.

Crawford has passed more in the preseason and tonight than he has in years.

I think he's been forced to change his game because he's lost enough quickness that he appears to have trouble getting shots off in any kind of traffic.
