    Not his fault..

    Hart never seems to want to pull the trigger on the 3. Same with Bledsoe.

    Never said it was, but the reality is still the case.

    If basketball was a perfectly officiated game, which we all know it isn't, even with the flaws in the offense he'd still have like 2 guys fouled out and have shot 12 FTs by now. That's not helping him either.

    But it is what it is. Not his best game *shrug*
    Cade Cunningham/Usman Garuba/Scottie Barnes/Moses Moody/Brandon Boston Jr endorser.

    Eye test people: analytics people watch more basketball than you do.

    Hart's got some good things going for him. One is the hustle, particularly on the boards. Another is the intensity; he generally seems like he's trying.

    The things that go against him include his complete lack of feel about 65% of the time and his D- tier decision making.

    Which makes it even funnier to me given you have him muted and never respond directly to any of his posts

    I now count 5 wide open threes Hart has had (I mean literally nobody within about 8 feet) that he's passed up for no good reason.

    Not never, sometimes I do. Just rarely.

    Yea, our guards can’t shoot and can’t defend, not a good combo.

If we're gonna lose regardless, I'd rather use this game to try and foster Zion's furthered development. But that's just me.

    i understand that but zion frustrated and not getting the calls..the refs may give him a offensive foul or non call or he could have scored but my thing is, adapt and try to find other players to put the points on the board and regroup for the second half...

    Worse combo: our guards can't shoot and some of them *won't* defend. Like they can but they just don't wanna.

    Calling: Eric Bledsoe.

    Zion, and Ingram have warts.. In regards to facilitating. With Zion you can play 4 feet off and clog paint while he's ball handling. Some defenses can exploit this issue with him. As of late Ingram hasn't been reading the floor as well as we are accustomed to seeing him.

    Bottom line is they're both our best options to orchestrate the offense. Ingram actually does this well when he's reading the floor. Zion also does fine in that regard, tonight he's just facing a team that's guarding him well.

    # 1 = -22, but the problem today is BI.

    CLASSIC!!

    How come Kira isn’t getting any minutes this half?

  16. #116
    Like I said Mr. Nesmith...enter JJ!!

  17. #117
    I feel like I've said this 40 times over the last few games, but why don't we try running the Zion/JJ 2 man game a bit and seeing what happens?

    [email protected] the foul calls on the Pels.. While again.. Zion and Ingram are getting touched on drives with no call.

  19. #119
    Okay Zion, a couple of buckets there, we like to see it. He's hit 3 straight, getting back into some rhythm.
