Morris is a giant black hole. When he is on the court with 4 other bench players....fine. But when Kyrie, Brown and Horford are still on the court with you, you have to move that ball

MM has never seen a shot he doesn't like.  He's disrupting the C's offense with little to show for jacking it up nearly every possession.

Ya when he gets the ball he's gonna shoot it. I like his ability to go one on one and get a bucket but does he have to take so many long twos?

  • Be the posts you wish to see in the world.
We're in a weird place with Morris where he usually sucks but we need his offensive ability desperately enough that we let him keep trying.

Offense hard to come by for both teams tonight
I hope Eddie gets some minutes.  Needless to say there might be some PT available for anyone who can make an outside shot consistently.
I would be surprised to see Eddie getting playing time before he is released. Given how many guys are in Portland right now, it wouldn't surprise me that Eddie was signed to be nothing more than an extra body to practice with while the team is on the road.

Morris shoots a lot, but he's the only one who can seemingly put the ball in the hole outside of Irving.

Speaking to Morris they need him to score. No one else on this bench can do that consistently. Only way to score is shoot. I don't have a problem with him firing away - better him than Smart.

He's shooting so 41.5% this season. Granted he's had some injuries problems but he isn't actually that good at putting the ball in the hole. On the other hand he's way better than Smart or Rozier.

Man, I'd love to have Lou Williams on this team. He's exactly what we need with Hayward out. Imagine always having either Kyrie or Williams out there offensively.

Given how the East is looking right now, I think Danny should look real hard at giving up the DPE and something like the LAC pick for him. Hell, I'd even give up some of the younger guys like Yabu or even Rozier, and that's even knowing that we probably would lose him this summer.

God, Smart's shooting is such an enigma. Both of those jumpers that he hit tonight looked really good, smooth, and within the offense. Why can't he simply do this on a more consistent basis, even if it's only to the tune of 15 or so points a game?
