Pass the [dang] ball Tatum

He got raked on that one attempt going to the hole. Never gets the love he deserves from the refs.

Though he should've taken the one baseline three to the hole, as nobody was anywhere close to him.

He could of passed it to a cutting Kyrie before the foul

They have no answer to the Kyrie/Smart and Al PnR.

Speaking of Smart, he's improved in pretty much every aspect of his offensive game - shooting, scoring at the hole, taking defenders off the dribble, passing, etc. - all while still keeping his elite defense.  He really has been such a major part of our success this year.

Kyrie is on another level offensively.  Imagine if he got the usage that Harden gets?

Yeah -- Smart has been soo impressive this year.  Earlier many of us were complimenting Morris as C's most consistent player.  Smart has been very consistent and is contributing in all phases.

That's twice now that Kyrie has not gotten out to close on his man shooting the three. Has to be better.

Uncle Drew and Davis play n pick n roll would be unstoppable.

Thank goodness for Brown's buckets.  Momentum has been shifting.

That was pretty good D by Kyrie, too. He kept him in front of him and didn't let him drive and score/kick, but PG just hit a big shot over him. Maybe could have had his hand up in his face earlier, but that's nitpicking.
