Great block by Wiggins and Teague blows by Paul.

I'm such an idiot, I know it probably doesn't matter, but this is exciting.

For some reason, Teague has a real good history vs. Paul.

Rose just sealed it with that 3.

I like it. Not sure how to get Wiggins motivated consistently.

We could easily be leading this series.

Wow! Who would think that we would be on the right side of a blow out?

Great second half.

We matched Houston on made three's.

Not a big plus/minus guy but, after Butler, Teague and Rose led the team.

It appears to me that Wiggins has picked up his effort in this series. Tonight he had the numbers to prove it.

I think this was one of the most controlled, efficient and engaged Wiggins I have seen this season.

Agreed.
Jones' floor time evaporated. He'll be needed during regular season, but Rose will return.

Yay

My family has been anti-Rose, ever since my daughter got some Rose shoes for basketball, when she was in fifth grade.

5 games into their season, she had to sit out a couple of games; the stitching area in the heel had come loose and dug a 3" cut into her foot during a game.

First time in any conversation his name is brought up, she snarls.

I think there is a good chance Tyus isn't here next year. Or he plays on his 3M QO to become a UFA after next season.

That's the problem. Teague is the main topic in the paper today, lot's of praise heaped on him but it's all prefaced with 'When he plays like this...'. Thibs and Butler both said it.

But I won't detract from him today. He's been very good in the series and really the final stretch of the season too. I guess playoff experience really is a valuable thing.


And I won't even talk about Ricky's triple double

Honestly, Thibs is more the focus of my ire over this. He had a master distributor with a massive BBIQ and one of the best defensive points in the league in the middle of 3 scorers. Thibs unloaded him for a draft pick and signed a shoot first PG with a low BBIQ and a terrible defender, eating up considerably more cap space in the process. faTeague is just the symptom. Thibs is the disease.


The single most obvious blown move on so many levels. And for most this is not MMQBing, so to speak. Once we got Butler, there was absolutely no reason to make that move, there aren't enough backetballs, AND Rubio would control the ball enough that Butler wouldn't have to be expending as much energy controlling the ball for entire possessions.
