    Why don't we do that.
    Back to this, Lonzo Ball is tied for having taken the most shots out of anyone on the team.

    He is 3/16 from the floor.
    Cade Cunningham/Usman Garuba/Scottie Barnes/Moses Moody/Corey Kispert endorser.

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

    Guess we have to hope San Antonio loses. Lol.

    If they have a bit of a chance, don't think Zion can sit again. They always go down more when he sits.

    Got admit... Warriors are doing a good job of not getting called for fouls, be physical, and getting us to funnel shots to our worst shooters.

    Curry 4 fouls early and they will not call another one on him

    It doesn't help that Lonzo has the basketball IQ and shot selection of a wet sponge.

    Being defended by Steph Curry who has 4 fouls and they're in the bonus and he settles for fadeaway mid-rangers. Drive, for God's sake.

    This is why wouldn't pay him $20mil plus he's 3/16 tonight plus four missed alley-oops w/ Zion. Lol. That's actually what he's suppose to be good at.

    There's a list as long as your arm for reasons not to pay him big money.

    Don't forget about him missing almost a third of his career due to injury so far, his complete inability to actually run a pick and roll, or his fear of contact.

    Time to focus on tomorrow night. Hoping for a better showing in game 2.

    Lonzo missing an open 3 with a backboard clank... Poetic

    Zion feeling he has to do it himself because he doesn't trust his teamates. We better draft all guards this year.

    We need shooters on this team and a savvy vet guard (game manager).

  16. #91
    Can we just tank already?

  17. #92
    How bad are we defensively?

    We have exactly eight personal fouls (three by the starters).

    Contrast that with the Warriors who have 25 personal fouls (25 by the starters).

    We are not aggressive enough at all.
    Disclaimer: I would never denigrate or defame Zion Williamson as a man or as a basketball player; he will go down as an NBA great and perhaps a Top 10+ player of all time. Any inference derived from any of my posts to the contrary is your mischaracterization of my words, or a sign of insecurity on your part (perhaps both).

    Respectfully,

    AISI

    Those Warriors Unis are almost perfect. Very nice to the eye

    Lonzo with 3/18 as we wind down, 1/9 from 3.

    Some people are going to look at 8 assists and 2 steals and think he had a good game other than the shooting, but he did not.

    Horrible night for him.

  20. #95
    Put DiDi in!!

    This happens again tomorrow.

    I said it the other night. He is an absurdly streaky shooter. Will hit 6 one night then 0 the next. That’s fine on the bench but it kills you in the starting lineup.

    Not if Ball sits. We lose less by default.

    Endgame: GS win 123-108

    Zion: 32/8/1 with 2 blocks, 50% shooting (0/2 from 3), 73% from the line
    Ingram: 19/2/4, 45.4% shooting, 1/4 from 3, 100% from the line
    Billy: 10/7 with 4/5 shooting
    Lonzo: 7/7/8 with 2 steals, 3/18 shooting (16.7%) with 1/9 from 3 (11%)
    Bled: 11/5/4 on 4/7 shooting

    Johnson adds in 6 points on 3/10 shooting
    Naji contributed a good 12/6 on 4/6 shooting
    Jax with 9/4 on 4/4 shooting in 14 minutes, along with a steal.

    Edit: oh, and Curry got his 40 points. That's gonna happen again tomorrow.
