That's what being a 6'10 shooting guard can do for you. He'll be able to shoot over anyone.

By the way I like when Danny is agressive but he needs to understand that he has more weapons around him, he needs to stop forcing the shots so much.

I'm hoping Tyler can do some of that. Lance and Tyler had good chemistry last season running some pick and rolls. But nothing can happen with Dahntay on the floor stopping the ball.

Remember that quarter when we shot 20 for 21? Well, if Darren hadn't made that last shot, we would have been 1 for 21, the exact opposite.

Edit: Ended 2 for 22, I think. About 10% shooting. It's amazing we're only down five.

Collison has looked quite good, picking up where he left off from before the playoff injury. I also like pauls aggression. He's fast enough to draw a ton of fouls, which has made up for subpar shooting somewhat.

As bad as Paul George has looked, I look at the box score and he has 9 points and 7 rebounds with a steal at half. That's not bad work, honestly.

He looks completely different. He's going to the rim at every opportunity.

Getting to the line is what makes players such as Kobe and DWade as good as they are... If they can get to the line often, it can make up for poor shooting...

Paul George going to the rim as much he is is phenomenal. His shot will drop. No one should worry about that, his jumper was money all last season. The nice thing is if you attack and get to the rim, you'll manufacture points every night like Paul has tonight. Really excited about that.

Danny's been off, but Tyler looks to be in for a much improved season. DC looks good too and will look solid with David.

Paul hasn't been doing much from the field, but he's been driving and getting to the FT line.

Started off reeally hot. Got rose in foul trouble early. Tyler abused anyone that guarded him. Collisons very aggressive. we went 2-22 to finish the half. Really high tempo. Paul George is super aggresive as well, just cant find his shot.

Summary: if we couldve nailed a shot, we'd be up 10-15. defense looks good though, were playing in the passing lanes alot.

Boylan said the ball had to be shared, and also pointed out fouling jump shooters.

Lance was the only one holding onto the ball to me, and fouled the jump shooter on a 3. That wasn't so subtle.

There is a reason why I think he should start, he could get starting power forwards in foul trouble, way better than getting bench players in foul trouble, his defense is also pretty good.

Moving the ball was an issue with the second unit in general, Dj for instance.

PG on the other hand :confused:

He looks a little bit better, but not much. Tbird called it during the draft, PG is a stiff dribbler. If he could bend his legs or at the waist a little more...gotta think someone on staff has noticed that too, but it can be hard to break that kind of unconscious postural habit. I imagine growing another inch doesn't help with that problem.

On the other hand, if he can find his way to the line this much it'll be OK.
