Not entirely what I want to see from my team, but it was not all bad.
Lows – where to start?
Al =20 minutes 3 rebs, 2 points, 1 or 8 shooting.
Haward = 17 minutes 2 of 10 shooting.
Mo Wiliams = 3 of 9 shooting 4 turnovers when it counted.
Favors = 22 minutes 2 rebs, 0 blocks.
Now the upside, which though the above looks bad, the upside looks good.
Held them to 83 total points while they shot 46% from the field and 20% from the perimeter.
Paul Millsap – same Sap 4 of 7 shooting 6 reb and 13 points in 20 mins. 1 or 1 from the perimeter.
Mo Williams – 6 assists 11 points in 22 minutes. 2 of 2 from the perimeter.
Ma Williams – 4 of 6 shooting, 3 rebs, 13 points in 22 mins.
Hayward – 6 rebs in 17 mins.
***Kanter – 5 of 12 shooting, 11 rebs, 12 points, 2 blocks in 24 min
Carroll – 4 of 6, 3 reb, 9 points in 23 mins.
Tinsley – 3 rebs, 6 assists.
There were a lot of positives, although many will gripe about how several of our players did not play well. So what…. They did a good job. Minutes were evenly distributed between 11 guys on our squad, while they had 3 starters over 28 points and Lee at 36 mins. Guess for them pre season means something. I pointed that out for those of you who were worried about us losing a mean nothing game.
My disapointment came when Favors didnt come out and play like he should have been starting. Maybe he isnt the player we all thought he could be. I hope he doesnt cruz like boozer did. I am not worried about Al or Hayward, since everyone has a poor night. I just hope Al doesnt wait until Christmas to come out and play as we know he can.
Well tear it up, but I think I nailed it down good. Its nice to see the Williams both play so well together. i hope Kanter wasnt just a fluke, and I hope Favors was just having an off night like Hayward was seeming to have. Its easy to get excited to see how things improve in the future with time to gel.
