    2019-2020 Official Regular Season Thread

    I think that is what cliff wanted to give up. I think it was the coverage call. Personally, I would have blitz or trapped, but I think that is sometimes by design. The truth is, our defense is not the issue. It is the 30th offense in the league. Our defense has been good and vuch has not been the issue there. He closes out our defensive possessions with this rebounds in and out of space. He is long and can get in passing lanes. He is fine on defense. We need to fix the offense by yesterday. (Dont get me wrong. Our shooting as a team is the reason we have lost a lot of games. That is not on the coach. I blame the players in not hitting open shots. Though, I do think our pgs can get us easier shots.)

    I like the ball going through vuc, but sometimes it is not a good option in the post because of the matchups. Marc gasal is an example of a bad match up for vuch. In that type of match up we need pick and roll or pick and pop with a play maker like fultz or MCW. We are not using our PGs good enough. They can create offense for everyone. I hate when Cliff talks about Fultz because he tells us how great he is in the lane and with the ball. I dont want to hear words, show us by calling his number 20 times a game to make plays. Increase fultz usage rate and let see what happens. Tell the kid to attack the rim down hill. I dont want his usage to be bring the ball up, pass to someone, and sit in the corner. Give me some kemba walker plays on multiple positions. I know you have the plays cliff. Dont play with me.

    i have been consistent about liking Vuc. I like him as a piece for us. I like what he does and dont think his defense is as bad as advertised. I wanted to resign him and happy we did. I think we need to build on Vuc, Isaac, Gordon, Fultz, and ross. Outside of horrific shooting, I do think some of the issue has been coaching. In the half court, I think the coach could use fultz better. I think we have not continued to go to the hot hand on offense. example, gordon having like 19pt vs dallas in first half and we barely go to him in the second half. That is on the coach and play calls made. We should have had continued to attack with gordon. We need to continue to find our gamely miss matches and feed the hot hand. I think Doncic does not go off in the second half if we dont allow him to rest by not attacking with gordon. It just common since. Feed the person who has been scoring and has the best match up. We fail at that so we fail to score and we fail to win.

    it matter your thoughts on Mo. I guess because I dont see DJ returning. I also think Fournier may opt out. Moe is they only risk we take, but he is not ready to start this year or next year.

    My boston trade would be Founier / DJ / Bamba for Hayward / Edwards http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=y6x2g5k4 Vuc / Isaac / Gordon / Hayward / Fultz Kim / Chief / Ross / MCW Edwards is also another good young PG and he can shoot. Reminds me of a younger DJ.

    that would be a good trade for boston but I think turner and warren would be way too much. I think the pacers look at turner as a big big piece for them.

    it is a joke. the refs are just trying to save face. It is getting to the point that New York will need to look at challenges because the court refs can not make unbiased decisions. You made a bad call. Do not make it worse buy doubling down on another bad decision. It comes down to pride sometimes. These refs need to be humbled.

    Fultz: Heart to Heart

    Yes, fultz does well finishing at the basket and making good plays in the lane. We just need to run more plays for him to do it.

    ross and evan have those things, they just need to get back in rhythm
  11. I agree. We also need ross healthly because he was a big factor for us last year.
  12. still early. We looked good last night. We just need to hit more shots and to mesh with fultz.
  13. plus on charge was a bad call.
  14. I think it is more on coaching. The coach does not seem to tell the team to ride plays until they are stopped. It is my main issue with fultz. If you are calling fultz our best playmarker and perpetrator why are you giving Fournier (the black hole ) the ball. Why is fultz crossing half court, passing, and sitting in the corner? The coach needs to make sure we are feeding the hot hand and giving the players with the best playmaking ability the ball. Our best player makers have been vuc, fultz, gordan, and MCW. I am still waiting on ross to show up and Evan to pass more.
  15. I really dont want fournier 2.0, but I am not a moe fan. I would not mine the 1 rounder and bogdanovic. Fournier contract is also coming up. He could opt out this summer.

    Fultz: Heart to Heart

    Game 41: Dallas: Fultz did great getting in the lane. He had a nice lobe to Gordon and he played good overall. He is shooting very well from the FT line and I still want the team to give him the ball more. The bad thing this game for Fultz was JJ barea. Though, the bigs did not help Fultz on a lot of the screens. JJ give fultz buckets. It was a turning point in the game.
  17. I am not a Mo fan. Bogdanovic is more of a sg/sf. He has not shot well this year but I like him. I am not giving up a pick. We would need the pick. There is a big age difference between mo and bodgdanovic. Though I dont like mo, I dont want to get older. He is one of our young pieces. If we get a 1st round pick. I would do it. Otherwise, I would pass. Ross and Fournier are better than Bogdanovic.
  18. i want to see MCW as the pg. Augustine has not impressed me this year. His offensive production has not justified his defensive short comings. I need more offensive production from him, if he is going to be on the court. If he is going to shot 40% fg and 26.3 3p%, we just need to play mcw. (Dj did have a good game last night vs dallas but I just think MCW is has more impact.)
  19. I think you have something against mcw. you called him a bad player in the past and you keep saying we are not getting things from him. MCW has been a difference maker on the court. He has really been our best PG and the best player off the bench. (Since Ross has been a no show.) He is the most energetic on the team, second best defender, and he has even been scoring. The only thing holding MCW back is playing time and coaching. I would personally like to see him play back up pg more mins. starters: vuc, isaac, fultz, gordon, fournier bench: mcw, ross, cheif, moe
  20. we need every player back from last year. I think we were top 10 in 3pt %. We would have won vs Dallas with that alone.

    Fultz: Heart to Heart

    Game 40: OKC: Fultz had one of his better games. He was aggressive shooting and pushing the ball. He played with good energy. He had like 3 rebounds in the 1st 5mins. He took ten shots in the flow of the offense. He did not pass up shot. Good game for him. Now we just need to get a win with him as a starter. 50% shooting.

    Fultz: Heart to Heart

    game 39: Fultz got his first start on the magic. He played well on def and had a few nice plays on offense. Cliff needs to put fultz more in pick and rolls. He got a few steals and ran the offense. There was key turnover by fultz that hurt us late. But over all, he looked good with the starters. Cliff needs to run the offense more though fultz. When he gets in the lane good things happen for the team.

    Fultz: Heart to Heart

    game 38: Bucks: No one on the magic played great in this game. Fournier scored a few points and that was about ti. This game reminded me of the knicks game for fultz. He did shot a few shots early in the game, but that was about it. Nothing great to speak about.

    Fultz: Heart to Heart

    game 37: Knicks: Fultz was a ghost in this game. He really did not do much. He was not really aggressive to the basket. Their was a stretch, with the second team, were really needed him to make plays, but our offense just kept doing dumb dribble hand offs and quick flare screens for quick threes. I think the coaching staff needs to call more pick in roll with fultz. I would like to see some kimba walker style plays ran by cliff for fultz.
