Are we just going to ignore the play of Garrison Mathews?

    Dude showed some promise in garbage time at the end of the last game and is coming out swinging and playing really well against the Thunder, taking 2x charges and hitting a 3.

    He's playing under control and in the flow of the game. Unlike Brooks...

    I mean, he looked ok skills-wise and plays HARD. Not bad for someone we just picked up. But the fact that he’s already seemingly supplanted KJ Martin in the rotation tells me more about the coaching staff than Garrison Matthews

    They ran a few pin downs for him which looked promising.

    Was Josh Christopher hurt? Seems like a perfect opportunity for him to get minutes...

    Matthews only had 10 turnovers in 1038 minutes last year. In addition to his shooting, this team could use a "turnover every 100 minutes" guy.

    The dude looks like a legit 3&D guy, shame he’s here. Few guys that could help playoff teams

    He’s a better player than people on here want to give him credit for.

    If Al P not playing, House's minutes should have gone to a shooter like Garrison.

    I just like that he comes in and plays under control, within his means. That says something about maturity.

    For all the talking up of Brooks' shooting ability he just comes in and forces everything. So frustrating to watch.

    More plays drawn for him than sengun ? Cool, i am waiting sengun would lose it and ask for a trade after his rookie contract.

    Another young guy that deserves minutes. House, Augustine, Brooks should all join Wall on the bench the rest of the season. There is absolutely no excuse for Sengun getting 5 minutes and House and Theis gettng a combined 36. Matthews got 24 mins which I’m ok with just to get a look. If you want to start a small lineup then make it KPJ, Gordan, Tate, KJM, and Wood. Second unit Green, Matthews, Segun, JC. House, Augustine, Theis, Brooks should rarely see the floor. Garuba should be at RGV.

    Toxic hate for brothers but the 'white' boy gets praise. Filthy savage hypocrites.

    Just know great white hopes are not moving the needle to any franchise championship level success. All of your hopes lie on the people you hate most, brothas lmao
