We went big, played great defensively during that stretch, and turned the momentum.
CBS should do this more often!
Did you notice Stevens seemed to be coaching with more of an edge last night?
He benched Hayward in the 1st half. Put in two bigs. Benched Tatum in the last 20 seconds of the game to send a message about his effort...
It was kind of awesome
And that's how it should be. Reward those playing well with minutes and if you're either not playing with effort or playing like dog crap, take a seat.
I do also think at at all times, Stevens should have either Baynes, Theis or Williams on the floor. Sometimes, he fields these maddening lineups on the court like Kyrie, Rozier and Smart all the same time. Why would you do that??
We need size, rebounding and defense to complement the scoring.
Anyway, nice observation.
