He's their love child. You can't say a bad word about him. Boy was crying the whole game lol.
Cousins cries just as much if not more than blake and CP.
On the floor slapping the floor begging for calls.
Regardless the kings are playoff bound as long as they stay healthy. Knew it wasn't going to be easy.
Good win. Solid execution down the stretch. Lance fits with the starting lineup.
Build some momentum. Get this one tonight.
JJ has some chemistry issues with both wesley Johnson and Lance. Especially when they run their floppys. Noticed it even during the preseason. JJ was so in sync with matt, and Lance sometimes (like Last night) gets caught not knowing what to do, running the wrong routes, etc.
Nothing to really be worried about though and I imagine that by the 15th game or so of the season there will be a flow and chemistry there.
I don't know how I feel about the Smith / Pierce small ball second unit. Going back to the preseason, we are getting killed on the boards with that. It's hard, but I wouldn't be opposed to giving cole a look and as wavy said, staggering the lineups a bit because I do think this will be a problem going forward. But offensively, from Jamal to Austin, to Josh Smith, Wes Johnson hit a corner three, they appear to be playing within themselves which is great. I love what I see on that end.
Even though it's the 2nd game of the season, these games are important man. I know we are far from a finished product, but we still need to rack up these wins. They'll prove vital if / when we win the conference or finish with the second seed.
Loved what I saw last nite. BG played as instinctive as I've ever seen him play, no hestiation.
The added dimensions (J Smoove's shot blocking, PP's offensive arsenal and Lance's chaos, both good and bad, ) to the squad are going to be fun to watch.
Co-sign on the bit about Cousins. Looks like dude is never gonna grow up, his tantrums and complaining are pathetic.
I'm higher on doc than most in here I think (as a coach at least), but since he's gotten to LAC their offense has been incredible. Clippers, Warriors, and Spurs, run some of the best stuff in the halfcourt. The improvement that the Clips have made in the halfcourt over the years has been really great to watch.
Now just gotta get guys like blake to not become a tight *** in the fourth.
Note: This is also why you have to look at process vs results. The Results don't make us much better than when Vinny D was here but the eye test tells a lot here to me and our team under Doc is lowkey worlds better than under Vinny D.
Hopefully you're right.
It's like when it gets under 6 minutes in the fourth, he starts thinking and as you alluded to, his instinctiveness just goes out the window. He takes the midrange jumper with so much confidence prior to crunch time. Once those moments of crisis come, he starts to revert back to old blake. The BS fadeaways without making the defense do anything, (He did this against Rudy a few times on opening night in the fourth) or just bulldozing his way to the rim only to throw up some caca. More than anything, he starts thinking, and then his composure goes out the window when he gets scared.
No Slip ups. Hopefully we take care of business tonight and get to 4-0. Won't be easy though. Phx has some players and Bledsoe always wants to show out against us.
Looking for Blake to keep up his torrid play, and for CP to regain his shooting stroke.
Alright, on to Wednesday.
**** man, I hate these ******
We've been pretty cold from deep to start the season minus JJ this season so far. (Even though JJ was ice cold last night too)
I look for CP to play great on ball d on steph and for the Clips to blitz steph curry on Everything. (Even though they haven't done that nearly as much as they have done it in previous years) Pin downs, when he's playing P&R, just say the hell with it and bliz it.
Relatively speaking, doc and lawrence's schemes on hot shot score first PG's is pretty good. Normally keeps them under control so we'll see how they do.
Good point. At times in past years they've hid him on Dudley, and Barnes. Making him work is definitely a way to go at him.
