Semi is huge!

Would you say he's built like a.... semi?  ;)

His frame is so absurd, it's only semi-realistic

Interesting game.  When Brown went down the team began to fall apart, but Jackson and Bird stepped up nicely.

As excited as we all are for Tatum, you could see some areas he needs to work on.  He needs to diversify his offensive game, right now he uses mostly the mid-range shot and can only mix in the drive and stretch to the cup with his length.  His 3-point shot is not there yet.  He has work to do on defense.  He got winded due to major minutes and many games in one week, but that is easily fixable.  Clearly he needs to add 15-20 lbs of muscle.  I am no less enthusiastic for his future, but he is a 19-year-old rookie.

Zizic looked better but geez those hands, awful.  Game is still too quick for him.

Semi Ojeleye is starting to come into his own with the shot and some decent play.

Intrigued by Lucas as a big.  Need to see more.

Jabari Bird making his case for the team.

Sounds like we should get used to seeing Semi

Stevens on Ojeleye: "His flexibility defensively is going to be enormous." Says he can be one of C's better defenders right out of the gate.

Zizic was impressive tonight. Good stuff. Hope it continues.

13 rebounds! He was grabbing rebounds that guys last year could not get. Very happy with his rebounding and toughness inside.


Flop tough guy

Jackson sucks. How can you throw should a terrible entry pass to the post from that distance at his stage in his development?

That was like a foot too high...

Too many pro guards out there can't pass into the post now. 

Even him thinking that was a good angle...

I agree though.
Is that the pass where Zizic was going to get triple-teamed on the catch if the ball were anywhere close to him?

Let's just face it: Jackson is not an NBA player.

Yeah pretty much, plus it was from the top of the key right to the block which is basically never ever the angle where you make that pass from if you know what you're doing.

Reminded me of playing C in high school lol.

Good to see Ante getting it.

Bird has played well and is more efficient than guys like Nader.   I think he has earned a two way contract, he can  shoot and is bouncy.

Semi has improved a lot since the first game.

Tatum continues to impress.

Guess you didn't miss Nader?

Be surprised if he's not on the roster

Brad Stevens called Semi Ojeleye's defensive flexibility "enormous." Believes rookie will be one of Cs better defenders right away.

Tatum was good in spurts, but had some really, really bad reads. Seems to like the pull-up jumper an awful lot, and didn't look great in isolation when they cleared out the side and gave the play time to develop.

I only saw parts of the other games, so perhaps he had a bad night?

Nope, I did not.   I did not miss all the blocked drives.

I saw him double teamed some.   He looked to me like he is wearing down and is tired.   He is hitting the SL wall.
