Looks like he's doing what he's supposed to. 6/8 from the floor and 4/6 from the line. That's an efficient night.

I'm starting to lose some faith in Yabu, though.

I want to see Williams covering Leonard.
Williams will make him cry
Seriously if he can really do the "wait calmly after the shot release and still block it" (did he?)
He will likely never have to gamble on pump fakes and is literally impossible to score over

Williams just 25 minutes. He has to be on a minutes restriction. Boston still must be worried about that knee

From the highlight package I saw there were at least two Williams allyslams, not sure if they both can from Wanna or not though.

Yeah, hugely disappointing.

Maybe Yabu is the type of player that looks better playing with better players? He doesnít seem like a one on one player so maybe that hurts him in the D league, but has shown glimpses of nice passing, outside shooting, nice blocks on D ect with the big club.

Most likely wasn't one of the 13 active players which would make him the only healthy scratch on the team. That speaks volumes for how Stevens sees his readiness to contribute right now.

Brad seems pretty clueless about how to right this team. Poor coaching. What heís doing hasnít worked.

seems like Williams is always  in Street Clothes, is it an injury issue?

Well in the new millinium its important that everyone play in the game.  So Brad was right on with that tonight.   ;D :D. So if Williams was active he would have played.

More than any other person that is part of this team, I don't think anyone has struggled as much as Stevens. He clearly has misread which players should be in what roles and is so stuck to his system and rotations that he doesn't see bad groupings, when he freezes out hot players, how to call the number of hot players and when to go to a different philosophy when the one you are using just isn't working for the first 30 minutes.

The C's have had a horrid schedule. Their strength of schedule has to be one of the worst in the league through 17 games. Stevens really only had two players playing to their ability in Kyrie and Morris. If blame is to be assessed for a 9-7 start to a season with such a tough schedule, Stevens deserves the most blame.

But also, dang, he can't shoot wide open shots or easy layups,vthats on the players and a bunch of them have been pretty bad at that, too.

Our players get open shots, and they miss them, that is not on CBS!

He deserves some blame because our guys are clearly not motivated but he can't shoot for them.

Yeah, literally the next sentence in my post said the same thing about open shots. Why did you not quote that?
