    Yeah Green wasn't bad, +/- is a terrible stat for one game, it's not even that good of a stat period. I think Green's thing is him getting stronger and getting a more consistent shot.

    He'll probably have some games where he'll explode though, at least I hope so.

    I love the closeout lineup of Brooks, Nwaba, Usman, Josh Christopher and KJ Martin. It’s fun to watch them Nipsey hustle.

    Is Josh Christopher making Jalen Green expendable?!

    The problem is not about tall players. The problem is short ones. There are still a few ones write Chet, Mobley etc. here. No. Solution is not them. KPJ has nothing to do with the playmaker role. If KPJ is going to play as a play maker in this team, unfortunately this team's future not looking good. He is quite unreliable with the ball, he is not creative and most importantly, he loses the ball very easily.

    This team needs a real PG.

    Evan Mobley with a good game from looking at the boxscore.
    Cade Cunningham looks like he's been cut from the team from looking at the boxscore.

    Going to watch the Suns play to remember what a real PG looks like.

    I've never seen the Rockets look so disorganised on both ends, Silas is going to coach himself into the Chinese league at this rate.

    Our starters looked bad but they were just getting bullied out there. Nobody who was with us last year, looking at you Christian and KP, look like they’ve spent any time in the weight room over the summer. When the other team can keep up with your speed and they’re stronger by a wide margin it’s not gonna go well.

    Legit think we picked up the best big in the draft. I know, I know, only one game and all. But Sengun really impressed me out there

    And what have they done in the entirety of their existence.

    Only thing I remember about them is mopping the floor with them 4-1 a few years ago.

    When I found out the Timberwolves were opening the season at home with the Rockets I considered getting tickets.

    Boy am I glad I wasn't at Target Center tonight..

    Eh, I got some strong Ryan Bowen vibes from Garuba.

    I was most impressed by Sengun. A little shaky at the start, but settled in quickly and did well for his first game.

    It always does. It's like they're not playing against starters or something.

    You're not winning without a superstar. Right now we don't have one and I don't think we'll ever sign one in the Tillman era.

    This team looks like it's headed in a bad direction. We're spinning our wheels with Wood and probably doing the same with KPJ. I get Green looking rough early while he adjusts and you can clearly see the potential in him and Sengun.

    You just can't see it with Wood and KPJ. They don't look like they offer much of anything. Wood is a big that can't play defense and can't box out. You just can't have that in a 4. KPJ is a SG trying to be a PG. He doesn't have the vision. He is careless with the ball and appears to disengage of things aren't going his way.

    We need a real 4 and a real PG.

    He holds the ball too long and thinks he has an alley oop brewing or drives to the hole in a very prancing manner. Even in the offseason he was getting served L's by street hoopers and he looked fine with it.
