Yeah that is a big gamble for a guy who is never healthy for a full season (AD) and for a guy turning 35. Plus all of the other old guys they have on their bench.
Not much else they could do after swinging and missing on Kawhi. Limited options with an aging Lebron and pressure to convince AD to stick around long term.

Trae Young is going off. 26 pts with 4 minutes left in the first half.

Malik Beasley just fouled on a three point heave and Rubio made three free throws to send it to OT.

Such a stupid play. Beasley is still in though.
They tried to give it away again in OT, he played the whole time. If only they had a Pg who never turns the ball over and always makes the right play...

Do you know if he is expected to play? I haven’t been following other than I knew he made the team.
13 minutes tonight through the first 3 quarters with 6 points (2-3 3; 2 Reb). Got in before we blew open the game too. Awesome stuff! Might have to turn some of yall to Raptors fans

KP and Luka combine to go 7-26 from the floor and 2-14 from 3, and the Mavs still beat the Nuggets in Denver. Weird stuff happens early in the regular season.

I didn't watch this one very closely, but I assume Gary Harris defended him. Harris has really put the clamps down on Hield and Devin Booker recently.

What is wrong with the Pacers? Jeez, that is looking like a bad call by me.

I don't know. I haven't been able to sit down and see any of their games yet. Just watching highlights and reading g box scores, but as far as I can tell it's just being without Vic and figuring out the rotation on the fly. I find it hard to believe that TJ McConnell is a better option than Aaron Holiday at backup PG but I guess Nate McMillan disagrees.
