    One of the flaws of this (otherwise very strong) roster is that it is, overall, on the small side.

    My only concern from last night is that I'd say there's a good chance Lowry's injured, and he's playing through it, and it's hurting the team.

    Other than that: a whole lotta meh. A bunch of the OREBs we gave up were brutally missed shots that are basically coin flips to secure, and the chips didn't fall our way. The refs were not good; inconsistent all night, taking away the rhythm of the game, which benefits a bad team like Brooklyn. Our guys played down to the competition, missing open threes and gimmes that would've made the difference. Russell got real hot - kudos to him - and Dinwiddie made some tough buckets; although again - to what degree what this enabled by a potentially hobbled Lowry?
    We grabbed 80% of available defensive boards with JV on the court. Under 60% when he sat. That’s not luck.

    It is a match up driven league.

    I am concerned that both our Point Guards are midgets.

    My conern is Lowry’s body... at some point in the season and a portion of the playoffs, he may breakdown. Can not afford a Fred Van Vleet to take over especially someone who forgot to play a proper text book PnR. I get it that he misses Yak but he has to adjust. He just cant dribble in traffic and hurl a Hail Mary. Some of his struggles is on Nurse too. Fred should play off the ball but yet his coach allows him to play like a headless chicken with no purpose.

    Defensively is a huge concern for me especially against long/ big athletic guards and Ive been saying this for sometime now.

    This team is still in first place and i totally get it but there some red flags and am sure others can acknowledge them

    Our back up point guard is too small to match up against bigger guards. I hate to say this but the only way for Nurse to not play Van Vleet is when he is no longer around. Masai may have to make a trade approaching after December 15.

    And I love Fred, sentiments and loyalties may have to be off the table when the WINDOW TO CONTEND IS NOW

    Wait what? You’ve been saying this for months and yet you called out some of my posts criticizing Nurse? I am so confused what side of the defense you want to jump in ... OR sitting on top of it and letting the wind sway you in any direction depending on the outcome of the game is what makes your canoe floats.

    You need to stay on track buddy lol.

    Trap Game.

    BKN though are a pesky bunch of guys, during their latest losing streak before the Raps, they had so many heartbreakers that could have went their way.

    Last night against the Raps was their night for vindication. Unfortunately at the expense of the best team in the league. Shit happens.

    But Lowry is in a slump offensively. FVV just cant fully pick up the slack.

    Bucks made a better defensive trade by acquiring George Hill.

    To throw a positive out there: Delon's been showing some nice flashes.

    Yup. I've been saying for 6 months, youi can't just wave a magic wand and make a bunch of guys who don't shoot threes for squat, suddenly into great three point shooters just because "that's the way the NBA is going". We don't have the horses for that.

    Which guys would those be? Might want to take a look at who has been missing most of our threes this year.

    The analytics approach allowing only 3 pointers and layups is fine if you have a team that can make 3 pointers and layups. In this game only Kawhi could make 3s and only JV could score at the rim. Seems to me we've lost a couple of times to teams that made a number of midrange twos and floaters. Remember Jrue Holiday for the Pels and tonight it was Russell. Kyle used to make a bunch of those shots and now won't take them. I'm guessing FVV and Delon must have shot them in college. I understand the "science" of the approach but if you don't have the players who can do it I don't think you can be a slave to it.

    Where are you getting 3/29? They were 6/29?

    Not great obvs, but still... 21% not 10%
    I slept through a few threes lol, I thought that was the stat they said at the end of the game.
    Point is, if they go a stinky 9 for 29 they win, a putrid 6 for 29 they lose. 3 point shooting was horrible again and lost this game. That and inexplicably sitting JV for the 4th in some sort of Casey-tribute-night salute
