What a block by Hayward!

Tremendous D this quarter.

And man, where would we be if RW could stay healthy and continue to progress. What an athletic beast of a player.

RW is progressing well. It looks like he put on some muscle too. He's looking like a taller Marcus Smart lately.

I miss Perkules sitting in the middle of Gorman / Scal.

When Hayward plays well this team is unbeatable!

I thought the same! Giant Smart!

We're looking really, really good right now on both ends of the floor.

GWill has really struggled lately on the defensive end.  Still makes good rotations but has been getting torched by smaller players.  Brad might be asking too much of him to try to guard them out on the perimeter.

Unfortunately, there are no good answers for the modern pick and roll.  The Celtics choose to switch on picks, and it leaves G Williams on guys like Paul more often than we'd like.  The alternative is to let the guard try to stay with their ball-handler around the screen, which is a losing proposition against a good shooter.

IMHO they should look at the rules on that particular action.  It's a bit too easy for the offense and a bit too impossible for the defense.  If nothing else, get back to calling moving screens.

Amazing 2nd quarter! Love the balance. Bench with 10 points!  :o

Ugly last minute of the quarter but still a great quarter nonetheless.

Disappointing final minute after building the big lead.

Good second quarter.  OKC cut into the lead a bit in the last couple of minutes, but we still did some good work.

Langford and R Williams gave us some very good minutes off the bench.
