As stated a couple of game threads before, I do trust this team.
When you have watched all games this year, you can clearly see this team taking many steps forward. And with winning, this team gained his confidence back, which is essential to this young team. Offensively I really like this team right now with Hickson and Faried. They can not really defend their positions, but offensively those 2 are one of the most dangerous duos at PF/C.
I gotta say I thought we were tanking, but now, with us having the better of ours or the Knicks pick, and the Knicks are awful, it seems like we are gonna get a good pick regardless. I think Shaw is doing a decent job, when he rolled out the Ty, Robinson, Miller, Arthur, Faried lineup to close out games, I thought that was a message to the league that we were tanking. Now though, it seems like he was just really experimenting with everything. The fact that we have a new rookie coach, with a new system, are missing Gallo and McGee and Chandler just is now getting back and we are over 500 in the tough western conference is encouraging. Imagine if Ty had made that game winner in Sac and Durant missed that 3 in OKC, we are 9 and 4 and looking good. I think, over time we will make our way back to the Western elite.
Ty Lawson, has turned into a top 5 PG in the league, there is a lot of talent at the position but the guy has been better than Wall, Parker, Westbrook, Rose, Curry, Lillard, Irving pretty much everyone but Chris Paul. It has been awesome watching him turn into a star, he has been straight balling.
21 and 10.5 and 3 on 53% from the field, 47% from deep over his last 5 games. He's been unreal.
