  • Casey misses Delon too that's why he plays Zo Brown. That's the only explanation
    Only one thing matters: We The Champs.

        Because he is playing 13 minutes lol.

        Casey yanks him out of his starting spot and giving him a short leash in minutes.

        You’re quick to respond on my post but not comprehending lol
        Do you really want Powell playing more than that right now? He was hurting the team when he was out there, you can't blame Casey for not playing him when he's playing that shittily. You can argue that Casey maybe shouldn't have taken him out of the starting lineup permanently when he got injured, but the starters (with OG) have been crushing it lately, so again, can't blame Casey for keeping it the way it is.

        Also, Miles is playing less than 20 minutes a game too. Casey's love for the two point guard lineups means less minutes for the wings in general. Powell has not been playing better than DeMar, OG or Miles lately, so he's going to have less minutes than them right now. If he improves, his minutes should as well.

            Short leash is deserved..he is really off his game right now..
            Agree with another poster that Wright will help Norm..Delon will handle the ball where norm is struggling with it..Hopefully Wright will get him some open shots and clear path drives to the rim....
            If norm struggles off ball..the leash will not only get shorter..it will get tighter.
            And with the 4th overall pick the Toronto Raptors select..... Scottie Barnes.

              I am not sure if you just started watching basketball...it’s common sense that when a player who just recovered from injury it takes a period of time to get back in rhythm. Compound that with the coach demoting him and limiting his minutes.

              I do understand though if this is new to you lol.

                Casey could have done managing this better, IMO.

                But what can you expect from a stubborn coach

                • I acknowledged the fact that Casey might have made a mistake by taking him out of the starting lineup permanently. For better or for worse, however, that's in the past now, there's no changing it at this point. I do know that it takes a while to get back to 100% after an injury: I'm not saying that's he's trash, and I believe he will turn it around sooner rather than later.

                  That said, you cannot justify giving him more minutes RIGHT NOW, which is what my original point was. As of right now (i.e. this game) he is playing badly, and should not be getting big minutes. I believe 100% that he should continue to get minutes so he can get back to the level we all know he's capable of, but if he's actively hurting the team he has to come out of the game.
