    Everybody is making fun of Clint's shot, but as soon as I turned on the game he nails a FT. Don't let em get you down Clint!

    His first shot was a serious brick from 17'

    But, staying within himself, he had a nice drop-step into reverse layup, starting from about 4' post position.

    Gotta admit this is strange to watch with no commentating.

    All whistles, sneaker squeaks, and crowd reactions.

    that's how summer league streams used to be back in the late 2000's.

    How good is our scouting team that we found the only player in Switzerland that's worth a ****? Daryl Morey should pat his other hand that's already patting his own back.

    That's typical for a SL game... not for a FIBA or professional game. At least not from what I'm used to.

    This is cracking me up watching SUI on offense. The guards act like they have the gravity of Harden while they should be using the gravity of Clint to their advantage. They need a real basketball coach so bad it hurts.

    Clint really turned on every part of his game in the last 4 minutes. That was fun to watch him dominate.

    @heypartner thanks for the feed. Enjoyed watching Capela mix it up with something lesser than the Rox. Watching him elevate his game near the end gave me hope that he knows how to elevate his play in big moments. This feed makes me even more hopeful for the season.

    The version of Clint that said, 'I'm going to go make something happen' really made me even more hopeful. Hakeem used to turn up his play when it mattered most. He's just gotta figure out how to do this in the playoffs. Hakeem the playoff-god would be proud.
