I didn't expect this one to be a W...a tough one to win even if we were at full strength with Zion.
They played well tonight, which is a positive. They go cold shooting for long stretches though. Redick is a great shooter. But when he's not on the floor they sometimes can't buy a basket. Etwuan Moore's shot kept clanging off the neck of the rim where it connects to the backboard. I mean...over and over again. My wife was laughing at me because I finally screamed "Adjust your damn shot, man!"
Defense, which has been the biggest weakness of the team so far, played well tonight. Harden was getting frustrated. We just couldn't capitalize and convert some of those moments to points.
