In almost a game and a half, we have not had one pass to the rim that wasn't tipped or fumbled away.

Ricky's ability to pinpoint the ball exactly where he wanted it to go might be his most underrated trait.

My initial look at Tyus on Wednesday is that his strength/athleticism have noticeably improved. The and-1 in transition was nice, and his defense seemed better. Anyone else see the same thing? (I admit I didn't see a lot of him last year.)


Tonight his lack of strength is standing out. Utah is just way too physical for him. He's getting pummeled.

Taj has very little touch on his shots or around the basket.

I think the idea that those close misses in game 1 would soon start falling is fool's gold.

To his credit, he's passing up a lot more looks tonight than in Game 1.

Our offense is all post-ups and Isos. No ball movement, no passing, no cutting.

Holy shit Wiggins!

That 4th rebound was a MAN rebound, and then the calmness to dribble into the long 3!

Through 6 quarters Wiggins has been our clear best player.

I hope KAT and Jimmy join the party soon.

Taj can't shoot, but he's doing a lot of work tonight.

Better game than against the Spurs.

I was biased against him when we signed him, but my dislike for Jeff Teague continues to grow.

I swear on those back-to-back Hood 3s, he started the shot before getting the ball and Rubio dropped it right into his motion.

12-0 run to end the 3rd.

Ball movement is much better with Tyus and Bjelica in the game.

Was Rubio this much of a flopping pussy in MN?

He needs to be flagrantly fouled for being such a baby.


Crawford en fuego is fun to watch.

They're playing better when he's not on the floor.

Thibs going small was what killed us down the stretch against the Spurs and its doing it again tonight.

Get Bjelica back in.

If you want to be able to effectively play small, don't spend 30M on Taj and Dieng...

This 13-3 Utah run is on Thibs.

His Butler at PF lineup let the Spurs blow open the game and now its let Utah back in.

OMG....

As good as Wiggins was in the first half, he’s been as bad in the 2nd.

Crawford 17 2nd half pts, and Bjelica did a lot of good. Wiggins had a real brain fart foul at the end.

We're going to have to play WAY better on Sunday.

Butler had a handful of huge plays, but didn't have a great overall game.

Wiggins had a strong half.

KAT wasn't good again. He looks a bit out of shape and he clearly misses the easy looks Rubio got him.

Taj was mostly solid.

Dieng is playing in molasses.

Both PGs were not good.

Really Bjelica and Crawford were the only guys who really played well.
