    In order to win games you don't have to be genius on offense if you play defense, hustle and play for your teammates

    Why do halfwits always feel compelled to denigrate one thing in order to uplift another?
    It reeks of insecurity.

    Anyway, the team is playing with more clarity and purpose which is definitely enjoyable, but the offense thus far has been shtty to shaky and has to get better if this team is to compete seriously long term.
    Fortunately it's still early and they appear to be headed in the right direction.

    Calm down everyone I am excited as well but this 4 game win win streak are not against heavy hitters. The Blazers were not at full strength.

    most importantly, this offense AND defense are sustainable when "playoff" basketball refs make their yearly appearance. in fact you could argue this defense gets better in the playoffs when it can get away with even more.

    I agree to an extent. I think the difference is the ball is moving more, so OPEN threes are easier to come by. The 3s don’t seem as forced.

    Part of Moreyball was not moving the ball too much, because it is increases the chance of turnovers. That's been thrown out the window.

    The other thing is of course we are pushing the ball a little more in transition.
