Jaylen's D has been horrible. Both Beal and Porter are killing him going around picks.

EDIT: And, man, Kyrie is just providing no resistance to Wall's first step at all. He's got to get better at that.

It's a flaw intrinsic to the C's switching D scheme.  It happens every game numerous times and not just JB.

He can't. Great offensive takent, but lateral movement sucks and he lacks any strength.

Rozier with a 3 off the bench.  He's a rythym shooter.  Hopefully he maintains confidence from the early make.

Looks like one of those Smart games...

Yep, Marcus Smart was the victim right there.

Smart has been terrible.  He's more loose with the ball this season and has been committing a lot of careless turnovers.

Oh good Lord, now we're going to start calling touch fouls refs?

It's resulted in mismatches like KI on Drummond in the paint 3 times in 1 game.
