        Yeah sucks for McCaw. Wonder how long he'll be out for?

        Kyle and Fred ended up playing 35 and 42 minutes respectively last night. Masai has to get another PG or Nurse is going to kill our two guys.
        Wasn't everyone under 29 minutes the last couple of games? This was a must win

        • My thoughts on McCawgate:
          - Nurse wants to get him over-the-hump, playing to a level he's "capable of" (think Norm and his growing pains)
          - Nurse likes to experiment over the course of a long season
          - Nurse wants to make Davis work his way up the pecking order, learn the playbook before being handed a bigger role (McCaw basically being used as an obstacle/placeholder)

          Game on.

            Very thoughtful take.

            But it caused way more damage than anything productive. Failed experiment. Keep it that way especially now that they are still looking for a face mask to fit him.

            Van Vleet at least for some “newborn baby” reason had a major turnaround of his game with his accuracy and clutch shots outside of 22 feet. Though the drives against length can still be frustrating.

            Davis like a once young late bloomer Norman Powell just needs consistent minutes. Both guys have the pedigree to become one of the explosive 2 way guards in this league.

            Two productive experiments are enough, lightning dont strike 3x if I am Nurse

            • Terence Davis is firmly behind Patrick McCaw in the rotation. Nurse cares not for your net ratings DanH

              “I know his plus minus is high and all those kinds of things has been good,” said Nick Nurse. “I don’t know if it’ll develop into a bigger role or not. I think that, you know, we have Kyle, we have Fred, we have Norm. Those guys have been around here a while and and pretty darn good themselves, right?… We still have Pat McCaw, as well, so there’s kind of a number of guys in there that play.”

                I'm just happy the Pat McCaw mention was in the "guys that play" section and not the "pretty darn good themselves" section.

                  It's like Nurse just goes out of his way to downplay Davis. The Spurs mentality is rubbing off on the coaches as well it would seem.

                  • There might be a psychological thing there with Davis. Earlier in the year Nurse was sort of trashing Davis too.. "he played 8 minutes.. maybe 5 too much". Next game he was huge for us. I think Nurse is using psychology here to help get Davis to become a stud.

                    Whatever works man.

                      Thing is, coaches know what makes different guys tick. Between practices, games, film sessions, travel time etc, coaches end up learning a lot about each one's personality in general. We'll never really know but this may be exactly what Davis needs to keep him hungry and motivated.

                      Davis went out of his way to ask not to be drafted in the second round, because he was so confident he would have his pick of several teams as an undrafted free agent. He had the confidence to turn down multiple football scholarships because he knew within him that he would be a solid NBA player. From someone just watching him on TV he strikes me as a guy hungry for challenges rather than hand-me-downs, and it this may be even more evident for those being around him every day.

                      I have no facts to back this up (it's just a theory) but what looks to me is they're trying to get the most out of him through husky, tough-love, challenging player development (as opposed to, say, a Kevin Knox that came in as a lottery pick, got pampered and fawned over the NY media all the time, but turned out not so hot). I'm cool with that if this is what Davis needs and they see him playing here long-term. Problem with that approach is that by not giving him the minutes he should have based on his play, we might lose games in the process.

                        I was typing my post above before you said it, but that's pretty much it (we thought the same thing)
