Decent first quarter.  I liked a lot of what we did.  OKC is in the game because of hot three point shooting... and I'd say that it should normalize over the course of the game, but the Thunder as a team have been unconscious from three lately.  Just have to contest as well as we can.

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

Happens whe you bring out a rusty Hayward and a happy trigger Rozzier off the bench.

Frustrates me when one guy beats the Cs...much like KD and the Warriors. Today looks like Paul George's turn

Have to slow him down

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.

Pg13 finally looks 100% healthy this year. I hope Hayward doesn't take that long.

Have to admit that every time I see a good performance by the Jays it makes me think the C's are more in the driver's seat to get AD -- if they want him.   But I do love both Brown and Tatum.  Brown has been terrific lately -- needs more minutes.


Opinions?   Rank Tatum, Brown, Ball, Kuzma, Ingram, Williams and Zubac.

Bench defense has been good. Brown's been chuckin' big time for what 3 weeks now?

That is my hope also.

Rozier scrubbing it up again, to nobody's surprise.  What an awful pass to Theis.

Was getting ready to say this. Every single time in the first quarter that they take Smart and Al out and leave Kyrie in with Hayward and Rozier as the secondary playmakers, the playmaking quality DRAMATICALLY drops, usually leading to a loss in the lead.

We need Rozier to step up his assit game the movement was good with Smart and Irving in.

And Rozier picks up where he left off - starting the second quarter with a dumb pass leading to a turnover  >:( Follows that up a few plays later with terrible D on PG.

Please, Danny, please - let him be someone else's problem on Thursday afternoon.

Paul George vs the Celtics at this point.

Rozier is sorry off the bench.

Rozier is just a different player when he starts.
