we have 1 guy who plays defense, 3 or 4 guys who try to play defense and 10 guys who don't know what defense is. we should have beat both dallas and minny with minimal rugged defense, rebounding and making free throws/get to the damn line!We play defense?
Part of the reason they are struggling is having Zion in the starting lineup. It takes time to have chemistry....to know exactly where and what teammates are doingwe have 1 guy who plays defense, 3 or 4 guys who try to play defense and 10 guys who don't know what defense is. we should have beat both dallas and minny with minimal rugged defense, rebounding and making free throws/get to the damn line!
we really need to get about 5 new dudes on the roster.
even if by miracle we get the 8 this season next season we are looking rather good.
we move on from favors or give him a 2yr deal... let frank, moore, jah, kwilliams walk move on from darius miller even if it costs us 2 2nd round picks. the future is bright and if we go a different way from favors we have a lot of min up for grabs next season. Jaxson got time primarily because we had awful depth at the 4/5 immediately out of the gate. Jaxson is a highlight a game, every game but he plays defense like a young rookie... just like zion.
Agree 100%. Plus that means that Etwuan Moore and Frank Jackson get a good amount of minutes. That’s no bueno.I think we miss JJ. That guy stretches the outside so much and runs guys into the ground. He also steals a possession or two every game by being crafty. I love when JJ, Zion and Mellie are on the floor at the same time with Ball. It creates so much space and they all have good chemistry together. I almost wish we could start them and bring Jrue, Hart, Ingram and Favors off the bench in hockey like sets. Do this for a quarter or two then start the 3rd with the lineup we've been rolling with. See if we can't find a chemistry with guys coming off the bench. I'm just not sure you can ask BI to come off the bench after what happened to him in LA with Lebron, even if it's just for a few games though.
I still think we are a really deep team and just learning to play together but missing JJ has been like missing our coach on such a young team.
