Another one of those, "Did you watch the game or are you just looking at the stats?" game.

Really efficient shooting - 24 points on 14 FGA

And we take his rebounding for granted a bit I think.

Booker needs to be a little more efficient - 8/21 FG, 4 assists, 5 turnovers

Had a slow start, but he was playing well in the 2nd half

Agreed. Not sure what the complaints are. I saw consistent good play from him in the 2nd half. I didn't have the game on the first half as I didn't realize it was such an early start.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

He was fine, a good game by the numbers.

He was just doing Ayton stuff like loafing on the glass, being in poor position and slow to react in obvious situations.

Pretty perfect minutes distribution from Monty given who was available.

Saucy, I thought carter was fine. He played pretty well.

If Ayton wants to shoot 3s and abandon his midrange game, I’m totally okay with that.

3s and please work in the paint. He has the talent, he needs the confidence. He made some baffling choices, particularly in the first half. Deer in headlights.

I’m bashing him and he ended up with a great stat line. He can be an all time great. He has the talent.

That's the scary thing with Ayton, he can have a game and stat line like this, but you watch him play and think he could have done so much more... imagine what he'll be doing if he 'gets it'

Thought his attempts were all pretty good today. He didn’t force any and they all came in rhythm and during the flow of the play. He hesitated on the first one that he missed, but he looked confident and let them fly on the next 2. I’m cautiously optimistic that this is gonna be a legit skill for him.

Youtube TV for the win. The unlimited DVR will be nice.

He didn’t shoot enough. He had a half dozen opportunities to dribble the ball with a mismatch in the paint and he Boris Diaw’d it

I was just talking about the 3pt attempts. He did miss a few times to be aggressive and attack the rim.

Yeah I agree.

I'd prefer him to abandon the midranger altogether
