Luka is built a lot like Bogey, and he's crafty but not super quick or freakishly athletic, so I'm not surprised bogey could hang with him a bit better then Royce who is always undersized to his defensive assignments and tends to do better against pure iso players.Bogey did a better job on Luka than Royce this game. That was weird.
I thought that's what it is now.This game is only just one game, but it's still concerning.
I love these guys but still don't think the make up of this roster works for a title run. We have too much of the same. Bogey, Ingles, Royce, Niang.
All of those guys contribute, but we need more size, more defense, more athleticism, etc.
We are small with Conley, Don, Royce. I worry about bigger more physical teams in the playoffs. We have no interior game. So unless we are hot from deep
we are in big trouble. Second chance points also concern me.
I think by the end of the season Niang island will be a couple of fat dudes in hawaiian shirts singing Margaritaville.
They played physical on the perimeter and contained the ball-handler. When the Jazz were able to break it and get a good shot, they werent falling. Then they started forcing bad shots.It would be interesting to rewatch this game and see exactly what Dallas was doing. They managed to pull Rudy (and Favors) out on switches several times, leading to mismatches and the paint open for offensive rebounds. The Jazz are usually pretty good at keeping Gobert closer to the rim.
No. Subarus are for hippies.@Nicksti
random ****, but I don't think your username is random although I guess it's top secret if you drive a Subaru STi. I am a Subaru STi owner and have been curious if you are too. I don't know if, although it's part of your username, you feel like that is too much personal info to share on the internet but whatever. Just trying to get to know a new poster.
I was secretely hoping that in the crap game like this Clarkson's streak of consecutive games with a 3 pointer would end so Boler stops getting excited about it every damn game.
Clarkson cant really drive though. The guy doesnt know how to draw fouls and most of his paint makes are from stopping and pivoting into a floater or turnaround.The damn streak needs to end so Clarkson stops hunting for that first 3. I truly think this streak is on his mind and is affecting his decision making. 5 seconds left on the shot clock he'd rather pull up a 3 than try to drive it (if he hasn't made one yet)
How often does Bogie have a good game and Mitchell an efficient one? I would like to see the numbers.Dallas certainly has good/smart defenders, but none of their dudes are lockdown and without Porzingis they have no rim protection. I just don't get how Mitchell played so poorly. In the other two Dallas games the Jazz didnt have Mitchell and they won easily both times. This game should have been an easy 30 points for Mitchell tbh.
