Grill and Jacobson
I think I could score 63 points off that olé interior defense and that sagging perimeter defense. Of course, I'd need 163 shots to do it and no game clock, but I could do it ... eventually.
Griffin looks similar in height to Solo when he stands next to him.
For anyone that thinks these games don't matter to these guys, you all should have been there last night. There were a lot of heated moments, especially out of Jacobson and Lewis. Bolton was also very upset to lose. George had a scary moment where he landed hard but it didn't slow him down after walking it off.
I loved seeing that competitive fire.
It is fun to see all of the players joking around and getting along. But last night they were all kind of crabby . I didn’t see what got Lewis and Mike worked up but they were sure going at it.
I'm not positive but I think it started between Mike and Reed Mells who played on T-Lew's team during a timeout. Then Lewis got involved after the timeout ended.
They play harder than people think they do just from watching highlights. Rasir Bolton got a technical, Mike had a bad foul called on him late and took himself out of the game and walked by the ref and said, “that’s f****** bullsh** dude.”
If you could 63, I’m surprised all the other players don’t. Obviously 63 is inflated because it’s the summer league but it’s still impressive.
Jacobson may not look like it but he is a bulldog on the basketball court. Probably my favorite player this year.
Last year's game against Iowa was where I REALLY became a big fan of his! His reaction (i.e. "not backing down") to the classless play of Pencilhead and The Entitled One was priceless!
It’s impressive no matter what. But he did it on so few shots.
Lewis has to be the all-time CCL player.
I hope he puts it together when it matters.
The little blonde ref was annoying last night I didn’t recognize him from other days, but he’s probably been there every week
If Lewis can put together his game on the defensive end, he'll be on the floor enough to make an impact on the offensive end. Matt Thomas had similar issues, figured it out, and was virtually impossible to take off the floor. Hopefully Lewis does the same thing.
Have you ever tried or thought about streaming these?
Not just recording it and posting the chopped-up highlights?
I’ve never been as high on Lewis as most seem to be on here based on CCL. He scores a lot but he takes a ton of shots and doesn’t seem to involve his teammates.
That all being said, I would have bet cash money that they wouldn’t have won back to back games last night. That’s impressive.
I was more impressed with Johnson last night than I had been previously.
Hopefully that’s the case. I don’t think it’s only defense though.
I think it's safe to say our starting 5 is tournament worthy if Bolton is eligible. Haliburton/Nixon/Bolton are a very nice trio. Conditt/Young/Jacobson are all solid. Nothing earth shattering here, but it's going to come down to the development of Griffin/Lewis or a freshman surprise.
I like where this team is headed if we get Bolton eligible
It's probably not, but it all starts on the defensive end. It doesn't matter how talented you offensively if you can't figure it out defensively. I think right now is his time to shine.
I’m so excited to have Bolton for 3 years. I said after his first CCL game that I thought he had Monte’s smoothness. He just plays with the same ease that Monte did when he was young.
