Good post.Not taking anything away from NYK, but the Pels are a mess right now.
I don’t wanna turn on Willie but it’s 5 on 4 most nights. This is gonna be a negative post, but it’s just reality. BI is really fucking good. The injury sucked obviously, and was another oddly handled medical situation. CJ is good….he can’t carry though. It’s like the ugliest 20ish point game and I don’t know why I feel that way…it’s like the other night he had 23pts, but like 4pt 3rd quarter. Misses more big shots than makes, but you can win with him for sure.
After that it’s spotty, save the young talent. Dyson Daniels potential is huge, Trey Murphy is maybe the only other “shooter” but he’s a keeper for a role. Herb does everything you ask/want…he’s kinda forced into a fucked up role, but 34 minutes 4 points just won’t get it done. But he’s obviously a defensive/blk/steal etc machine.
So you just have to hope. Maybe Jose’ has a game(like him off the bench for sure). Maybe Naji, etc. The lineups are just weird every night. And we haven’t even seen Zion play much when everyone is healthy. Sounds crazy, but they could totally miss the playoff. Valicunas, man what happened. No true point guard most games or won’t even try Kira in longer stretches.
Jesus I could go on
I do appreciate them giving up all those points (popped over 1h 116.5 five mins into game)
