They are legit absolutely awful. Hard to watch Paul as he's been one of my favourite players but his days of being an elite starter are over.

Jumping the gun a bit early ? He was absolutely outstanding last season at the Rockets. Would be horrid news the Rockets if that was the case given the contract they just signed him to, but I wouldn't be ruling out Chris Paul this early, it was only 5 months ago if he stayed healthy for another 2 games the Rockets probably win a championship.

I don’t want to get carried away but Evan Turner has been very good this season from what I’ve seen. It seems like the shooters we have surrounded him with on the bench is maximising his talent.

Still not 18 million worth but he’s been good.

Collins needs to rebound better. Geez he’s deadly from deep though

Yeah was going to say the same thing about ET, but it only has been 8 games so I don't want to jump the gun. I won't judge him for not being 18 million good as that's unrealistic, but current Turner was the Turner we saw in his final season at Boston.

Good to get the win but hard to know how much to take out of it with Davis missing.
Yea after last year it's hard to take too much out of anything. We got an absolute heap of teams with their best 1 (even two or three) out. Then got swept.

Bench has gone from one of the worst in the league to one of the best.

Yeah that's the thing I actually have taken out of the season to this point, our bench has improved.

Yep guard depth and rotation is ridiculous. There is now very little let up for opposition. Also bench defense, rebounding and hustle been good with the young Collins (he is stupid good for a 20yo) and Swanigan.

Responded well today. Although sounds like the Wolves have checked out
Disappointed in the Wolves. They were a nice young team on the way up. Now they're a mess where talent the calibre of Towns and Wiggins look like they dgaf.

I do think he is heavily overrated though if I'm being honest.

Two more games in the homestand with Clippers and Boston.

Would be great to go 5-1 at home and head back on the road at 10-3
Yeah then I think we head for a 6 game road trip which finishes up with games against the Bucks and Warriors.
