    Yep! Plus, 9 steals to 1 is like the cherry on top. Oh, and might as well add in those 5 blocks while we're talking.

    i disagree like in the other threads. in win now mode....just my sports Philosophy....developmental guys is a waste. uif u doing that them u not giving harden n russ...2 mvps....everything they need to win. each guy on this team gotta be able to be reliable. n i keep saying. tyson will be used. i bet people used to say the same about nene. n what happened...every year in the playoffs he was valuable.

    n again....it may come a time were u need tyson on the court for his iq. toughness n size. think guys. its a reason he n isiah still on this team. n not just cause leadership. in the playoffs mda want guys he can trust. like any coach. he knows if he puts him on embid or jokic he can atleast battle for short bursts...or when u in the same city n no back to backs in playoffs. with guys like nene n tyson. u dont play them in the reg. u know what they can do. n u know they old. u save them for the playoffs.

    watch i bet u 100 bucks tyson will see playoff time. n not in just scrub mins but Crucial times. n it will be cause he a asset at that time thats helpful

    Harden orchestrated that pick play for the WB elbow-jumper, "Cotton Shot".

    I'll call it a midrange 21 or midrange Pistol.

    And why not talk about rebounding?

    The Jazz are best defensive rebounding team in the league (measured as allowing the lowest offensive rebounding percentage 16.3%. The Lakers are the number two squad allowing only 20%). Last night, we were even with them in offensive rebounds, 6 for each team. When we beat the Lakers by 10 on Feb. 7th, we were even with them on the offensive boards (6 for each team).

    While skill-ball does allow teams to shoot a slightly higher field goal percentage, we're not giving up tons of extra shots on the glass. If we can play with energy and keep our shooting percentage respectable, we're pretty dangerous now.

    I wonder how teams will adjust to the small ball strategy.

    Today game vs contender, that is why we need to use Jeff. I hope next game we can see Carroll and Brunco. I think we should rest Gordon next game, we want 100 percent healthy Gordon in playoff

    This small ball thing is really coming together. Team just looks confident.

    Crucial.minutes for Tyson?

    No way.

    If Tyson is playing crucial minutes, Rockets have abandoned both the 5 out offense AND switch everything defense.

    Disaster.

    And the Celtics.

    And the Lakers.

    But they can't beat (fill in the blank) in the playoffs.

    Impressive win last night, I still worry about the rebounding at times (like that stretch in the 4th from the 7-4 min mark where they got a ton of O Rebounds and shots) but when this team is locked in defensively and shooting a high % on 3s they look almost unbeatable. So far small ball is proving my worries wrong. It’s been fun watching them get leads and for the most part keep them finally !!!

    Quinn was adjusting his ass off, to no avail. James just went straight up cold blooded assassin on Jazz.



    And MDA casually makes a small adjustment or two, no panic.
