I like this more aggressive, driving Bridges

Cs are knocking down a bunch of 3s, 2nd unit is still shaky. Jerome got the hook early for Carter. Payne looks good again, plays with a good pace, pushes the ball up, nice size going down the lane. Frank the Tank is back and looks pretty good. He looks a bit bigger and stronger.

So this game isn’t on fox sports? Fuck out of here
I was trying to watch it there too. Ugh. If you have the fox sports go app you can watch it there. That's what I resorted to. *Edit* to add that in the app it says PHX vs MIN for some reason
Thanks.


Aytons 3 was exciting but are we just going to use him as a spot up 3 guy now??? Can we get some post plays??? Hello??????

We have the worst rotation of guards in the league after the starters. Not even close.

Bridges is going to be a star. He just is.

I know the sample size is small but he’s our best 3pt shooter now. Lol

Would love to see DA average more free throws than 3s, but maybe that’s a lot to ask.

Double-double watch: Book with 17 pts and 7 dimes. Ayton with 11 pts and 7 boards.
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone

Jerome just isn't an NBA-quality player at this point.

He isn’t an NBA-quality player at the other positions either.

I know it’s just a scrimmage, and the Celts have a lot of weapons, but giving up 94 points through 3 is really worrying.

Payne may turn out to be decent, but it was really weird that the Suns didn’t bring in some depth at the 4. Dario’s injury leave us really thin up front.

I get adding Payne with Rubio and Okobo being unavailable.

But I'm still trying to figure out why Jonah Bolden wasn't retained. The one game he actually got playing time, he was a difference-maker.

It just means we will see more Frank, and more Cam at the 4. Diallo will now likely get all of the backup 5 minutes.

I’m behind the action but a pretty good first quarter after a slow 0-7 start.
