Good win, we have two more games this week that I think are must wins before OKC comes to town on Saturday night. Not trying to look ahead too much, but it would be nice to go into that game rolling. But, I could see us slipping up before then.
Great game from our 1/2/3 tonight - can't ask for too much more than that. Sick sick man D from Jrue, which probably won us the game. I have the same thoughts about ET's scoring as I did about Jrue the other night - he's not going to be that hot from the field every night (in fact this was up there with the best shooting nights of his career) so it just isn't sustainable and I want to see him getting to the rim/line more...but it's pretty hard to get upset with such a nice all around game from him. I liked what he did running the point earlier on in the game, too - which was particularly important given the rest Jrue needed from chasing Kyrie around.
I liked JRich's contribution, too - pretty awful shooting/scoring night but I liked everything else he did to (more than) make up for it.
Spencer had some moments, and Thad's energy helped at times, but I wasn't all that fussed about our bigs - hard to praise them after giving up so many second chances. If it weren't for JRich and ET we might've been rebounded out of this one.
Also the exact same thoughts about Nick Young as last night - it's much harder to hate him when he's on fire. 8-11 (4-5 from 3, 5-6 from the line) over two nights. Hope he's okay.
I was also high on spencer hawes. When just about all of you psd experts said he had to go smh.
When you're blindly high on every single player, and never give any reason other than "everyone else is an idiot and not a real fan" then you don't get to criticize other people and claim credit. Sorry, but you just don't.
