Jazz running a top 5 offense with Gobert out...

He's the best defensive C in the game, but you just can't play him, Favors, and Rubio together. The offense dies...

UNLESS MITCHELL DROPS 40 EVERY NIGHT! drymount - the kid is a pit-bull! Happy for the Jazz to hit gold in the Draft.

Meanwhile the Thunder win (yay?), but Russ was atrocious once again. Put me down as very concerned.

The Jazz starters only played 6 minutes together in this one - 3 minutes to start each half. Snyder then hooks Favors so he can play the 5 on the second unit. Jerebko checks in to give the team more spacing.

Worked fairly well tonight... and I imagine we'll see it a lot.

No Johnson + Hood either - that's some serious offense still to come back. Jazz looking damn good - but Mitchell has really been the key.

Andre Roberson out = Thunder defence gets destroyed by the Hornets. 17/24 from 3!

Russ, Melo, and Abrines, are trash defenders. Melo is washed.

I guess I'll be cheering on Harden to try and knock-out the Warriors in the playoffs...

Thought I was going to be able to make it to the new year without hitting the panic button. Does Billy survive as HC for the year?? does he even make it to the all star break?? Or will the big 3 before moving him?? Is this the beginning of the migration back to Seattle???

Starting Patterson over Bum Melo needs to happen.

I've been campaigning for that from the get-go. It would help this team enormously.

But it won't happen... and we'll continue to see this offense fudge the bed and ignore Adams in the 4th quarter.

drymount.

Anyway, time to watch Harden kill the Hornets...

Even the wins are frustrating. I have to agree with some of the talking heads, it's a strange feeling to enjoy watching the 2nd team play over the starters. The stark difference in ball movement is astonishing. I don't know if I'd want melo ruining that. Maybe continue to start him but bench him sooner?? Adams is a national treasure and the real MVP.

Trade Adams to the Bucks. You guys can have Henson and Delly.

As a Thunder fan, noooooooooooooo.
As new admirer of the Bucks, man! that would be nice squad. But honestly I could probably say that about any mid level playoff team that would add Adams. He's that efficient.

Fine, I'd be willing to toss in Mirza.

Yeah, I've liked Adams for a while now. Bucks are in desperate need of a rebounding big that can just catch and finish at the rim. With the attention that Giannis/Bledsoe/Middleton draw, that guy would eat. fudge, even Henson has seen his offensive production shoot up since Bledsoe arrived.

Roberson with the game winner - lol! Played great defence as well.

This should have been over in regulation, but Russ proceeded to brick Philly back into it, going 0/7 in the 4th. :vomit:

Glad we got the win. Embiid was terrific, yet Adams played him well! Embiid just crazy good.

Not sure how the Thunder get up for the Knicks tomorrow. They're going to be dead...

Rockets are currently killing the Spurs. Good to see Kawhi back anyway.

Gobert injured again. Oof. But the Jazz still manage to win without him, and Favors! Snyder = damn good.
