This is what I wanted to see from Doc the boss yesterday. Yelling at guys telling em to wake the fu** up. Preseason or not... I'm never cool with poor effort.

I wonder what Doc said to Ryan Hollins, lol. Doc seemed livid. He's such a fouling machine. He breathes, he fouls.

Mullens might have to fight his way to minutes with how he's been playing. Not in terms of shots made, but effort and energy, but Hollins is his competition, so I don't know, Hollins seems to have gotten in trouble every time he came off the floor.

Hollins was supposed to pressure on the inbound and Doc was signaling him to get up, but he didn't and Doc put his hands ho I frustration. I don't remember the first one anymore.

Rebounding is certainly not so good so far, might be an issue this season.

Vinny would have yelled at DJ about Blake taking too many jumpers Very Happy. See last year Blake worried me too when he kept trying to prove he had range and got jumper happy. It's like dude... we get it, you're expanding your game. But NEVER, I repeat NEVER go away from the place you're the leagues best at... which is attacking the rim/paint. Add to your strength, never stop using it.

I dunno. Seems to me Doc is encouraging Blake to take those jumpers.

Him and Gentry are. The key is knowing that you are never meant to become a jumpshooter FIRST, but rather it's a weapon to open up the driving/paint game. Amare didn't just fire up nonstop jumpers.. if they gave him the lane he was going at your head.

DJ looks like last year DJ tonight. Not just the stats but his focus and energy have been just okay and he's fumbled the ball out of bounds 3-4 times.

I think Blake is just firing up shots like mullens to test his limits. When the games actually matter the entire team will crack down and take more efficient shots

Want To know one great thing I noticed defensively? No more terrible defensive switches that we saw nonstop last year, leading to easy buckets on mismatches for opposing team.

Fu** Powell! Wrap both of Blake's ankles tight nonstop. The dude is spraining his ankles out of nowhere.

Mullens is totally clean-shaven tonight. Perhaps it'll help him play better. Lol

Why isn't Blake going to sideline, just to get retaped real quick? Go get those ankles tightened man.

Uh how did Mullens give that fu**ing layup up? The ball was right in his hands and he got punked by a smaller player for a rebound+putback.

That was Blake's momentum, Foye didn't throw him down. Foye isn't that kind of guy.

Jamal is in. I thought he was being rested. I guess he must've asked to play?

Byron Mullens defense and brick again. Love it. I kept downplaying the drop off from starting bigs to bench ones.... maybe I didn't panic enough about it.

Didn't the bench beat the starters twice in training camp?

Is it possible Doc is coddling JJ and Matt too much? I mean, shouldn't they at least play a few minutes here and there. It ain't like their injuries look that bad.

I have to apologize to those criticizing our backup bigs (especially center). Watching Mullens and Hollins scares the living sh** out of me when I imagine us in the playoffs.

I think he is too, said it before. Things like a bruise can be played through, no doubt. JJ and Barnes have rested these bruises like 3 weeks.

Small ball with Blake at C or a trade might have to be what happens later in the season.

Yea... I'm thinking a trade of maybe Crawford or Green+Mullens for a backup big is a MUST.

Why didn't Jamison chase that? Was it a deceiving angle or could he have easily gotten that board?

Dang, DJ fouls out. So much for playing well in the 4th quarter. I hope this doesn't discourage him.

Yeah, it's a different DJ tonight. He would have blocked or intimidated that drive to the hoop in earlier games. I'm okay with a lack of focus occasionally. Hopefully, that's all it is.

It's frustrating to play such good defense only to not get the rebound.

Dudley is suppose to be defending guys like Miller late in games.
