Why exactly are Al and Tatum just coming back in with 30 seconds left in the half?? Theyíve played 13 and 14 minutes, respectively.

These rotations, man; theyíre baffling.

10 fouls on the C's, 5 on Brooklyn.  LeVert apparently is apparently the new LeBron, getting away with travels and all that.  Maybe if your last name starts with Le you're allowed to cheat.

LoL, I was told in the other thread that's ok. Does it bother you he continues to jack up shots even when he's missing?

For sure itís bothering me. 3 of his misses led to easy fastbrake points.

Goes beyond that: Smart, Rozier, and Theis all have more shots than Al, Morris, and Tatum, which doesnít make sense.

Horrid officiating.  That same play that's a foul for Baynes was a charge for Acy.  No consistency.

Per usual, these refs are a joke. All of those other calls are charges, yet they call that a block?

Thereís just simply no consistency with the officiating.

I feel like after watching and playing as many basketball games as I have...I should be able to watch a play and be able to guess if a foul did or did not occur with some level of accuracy...but the NBA officiating has become a complete guessing game.  Like they've figured out a way to consult chicken entrails while running up and down the court.

Anyone else noticed Tatumís three point shooting has really come back down to Earth lately?

I've noticed that he basically never makes the step-back or side-step 3's.  I can recall maybe only one make for the season, the rest he's missed.  He's much better at spotting up at this point.  I'd like to see him do a 1-dribble mid-range pullup if he's going to pump fake and let his defender fly by.  He's been consistent with the mid-rangers.
