    Kemba 2021: The Jour-knee Begins

    He’s been able to finish at the rim all season. So far this year he’s shooting .679 at the rim and has never been above .600 in any season in his career. He’s also now shooting in line with his career averages from 3-10 (a poor .333). The issue this year is much more that he hasn’t been getting...

    Kicked in the calf.

    This was a very easy call live.

    2/23 - Celtics @ Mavericks

    No. Most double teams aren’t against one of the best passers in the game.

    2/23 - Celtics @ Mavericks

    In a 2 point game that is the right play. If you miss, a foul and 1/2 gives you another chance to tie. Either that or run an ISO for a 3 to win, which I know is this Board’s favorite play.

    2/23 - Celtics @ Mavericks

    Because then someone gets an open shot instead of Luka needing to make difficult contested step backs.

    2/23 - Celtics @ Mavericks

    Celtics played great defense the last 4 minutes, which is encouraging. There is no defense that stops those last 2 shots. Those are the tough looks you want to force, but they went in.

    2/21 Pelicans Streak-Starter Thread

    I would like to see Timelord get a lot of run defending Zion.

    Kemba 2021: The Jour-knee Begins

    I had made a formatting change and forgot to delete his entry. The 31 mpg is accurate and I edited my post to remove the extraneous Thompson entry.

    Kemba 2021: The Jour-knee Begins

    Also, not saying I find this terribly meaningful given sample size, but RAPTOR now rates Kemba as having the second best season on the team behind only Tatum (WAR, not wins). Unsurprisingly, no one on the team is playing at the level we need 1 or 2 guys to get to (5+ WAR) if we want to be a true...

    Kemba 2021: The Jour-knee Begins

    I’m in general agreement here, but also find this post confusing because it seems to conflate minutes actually played so far and minutes a healthy team would play. Of course, part of our problem this year is that teams frequently are not fully healthy and we have no wing depth so missed games at...

    Help me buy a modem or router or whatever this is.

    I guess my question is whether I should do this or get a cheaper mesh option like the eero that would give me Ethernet ports in offices and guaranteed coverage without deadzones. I’m not looking to spend $500 on an overkill system but am happy to spend a little more to future proof or add useful...

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    He also has a really positive impact on other possessions by the eye test though. I guess the big question is, are the metrics wrong? It’s certainly plausible they are given the small sample size and the easy to spot breakdowns he is responsible for. Or are we putting too much emphasis on those...

    Help me buy a modem or router or whatever this is.

    Are there recommendations here for best approach to extending/reinforcing my wifi network? The current scope of options has passed by my general understanding of routers and I am hoping SoSH expertise can help point me in the right direction. We have a 2-level, 2,000 square foot condo with a...

    Kemba 2021: The Jour-knee Begins

    Kemba is not the problem. He hasn’t been himself yet, but he still has graded out as a net positive on RAPTOR or a modest negative by RPM. BPM also has him right around average so far. Statistically, setting aside 2P%, he’s also been fine. His rebounding, passing, steals, 3P%, turnovers, etc...

    2-14 @ Wizards

    Tatum has upped his usage again this year without a corresponding drop in efficiency, has lowered his turnover rate, and has increased his assist rate. He was awful today, but complaining about his overall body of work is silly.

    How does that stand on review? This is a joke.

    2-14 @ Wizards

    Silver lining: Nesmith played 12 minutes and didn’t look lost. Considering the serious need at wing, that’s a great sign.

    2-14 @ Wizards

    To be fair to him, the only offense that is remotely working are his isos and Kemba’s. I guess passing to guys who miss open threes isn’t that appealing.

    2-14 @ Wizards

    Brown keeps driving into double and triple teams without even thinking about passing.
