    Too many threes, too much 1-on-1, too much Brooks trying to dribble inside, too much Green and FVV overdribbling. Leaving Reid wide open on defense was also a weird one. But overall defense wasn’t the issue, it was offense.

    In MDAs first season here the league average team took 27.0 3s per game. The Rockets took 40 per game that year and the number two team took 33.9 per game.

    This season the league average team takes 35.0 3s per game. League leading Celtics take 42.6 per game. More than half the league takes at least 34 per game and EVERY team takes more than 30.

    We were way ahead of the curve using math in our favor back in the MDA days.

    I called it a bounce back game

    The reason why Green fared well was because he was like 8/11 from two, and as you mentioned his 3 ball failed him but he still did decent defensively and the boards/dimes was solid

    Sullivan is going to be On overdrive this summ

    If he can keep this up and the Caruso/Bulls performance he may be on to something, and give us super saiyan mode like Twice a week going forward to let mofos know

    I failed to watch this game on time:(…but man i enjoyed it a lot after watching - what a great combat between two elite teams, one well-structured WCF contender, the other is a uprising power house.
    ngl im so proud of the performance from our players for keeping their own tempo of game against full-fledged wolves (through 1st to 3rd qrt), and never shrinking back from challenging the alpha dog of WC in most part, their eagerness for surviving from the wild wild west could hardly be ignored.
    can't believe there were many on Twitter crying about flaws of our D and TOs of our young during the last 2min, it's unfair, put aside intensity of the game and how well balanced our opponent of this game wolves is now playing, c'mon they've been at their peak, it's unfair for both our vets and kids who gel together for first season, also it's the first year we got a legit HC not to mention we having been sucked, rotted, hit rock bottom for three fvcking yrs, so imho for this game, the process is much meaningful than the result.
    Shout out to Big Heart cAM, Corner Stone aMen and Babe mamba JG4, shout out to our vets esp Captain Fred.
    I have a confidence air that, led by coach Ime, second season we gonna stay around top eight with hands down and run for WCF as long as we can stay healthy and Stone does sign&trades right this summer. BELIEVE.
