I wish we had CJ Miles
Rivers hasn't been bad but look at how the 2nd unit is constructed. If Lance is gonna be running the offense (which he should) then Having Rivers out there is lowkey pointless. We need a shooter to open up the lane so Lance can get to the rim. I haven't seen a team/player yet who can consistently stop Lance from getting to the paint. The lroblem is when he gets there he has to kick it out to Austin and Not only is Austin a bad shooter but he knows he is so he passes up a lot of good, open shots.
Blake played like **** last night and IDK if they picked up on this during the broadcast but I was at th game and there were 2 or 3 times where Insaw him get mad/frurstrated with what Lance was doing. Im starting to think Lance does not run plays the way they're set up all the way through. There was a play specifically out of the timeout where it looked like we were gonna go into the pick n roll action with blake and give black the option to attack or lob to DJ. This dude Lance didnmt even use the pick and as soon as Blake saw that he threw his arms up
i'm guessing that was the issue Doc was having him earlier except now Lance has proven he can help the team so he kinda just has to deal with it.
Lance does a lot of questionable stuff but i'd much rather take his dumb behind the back/no look passes over Jamal's 18 foot leaner or 25 foot pull ups.
Overall I don't think last night is a game any of us can really get mad at. We were without CP3 and lost JJ in the first play. Indy knew they didn't have to worry about anyone else and with Blake having an off night shooting I'm not sure how we stayed in it so long. I haven't even checked the boxscore but as far as I knew we were in the 4th Quarter and Blake still had 0 rebounds
where dey do dat at?
Oh and you know what the most disgusting part of all this is? Whenever PP or Jamal get subbed in they damn near get a standing ovation. Wes comes in and the dudes behind me start booing
