Havent seen him yet

That would be a trade down, as would another PG, Hargraves of Kentucky

He is everything we hoped Frank would be.  An exceptional floor general with high passing IQ who doesn't turn it over.  And he can shoot the three.  But he fractured his left wrist and will miss the rest of his soph season.

BTW - I said Hargraves - meant HAGANS.

Devon Dotson of Kansas has also been impressive (no relation to our guy)

I'd gather that none of them are as talented as L-Mel.  Ball also has Simmons-like size.

I see Haliburton listed at 6-5 (Ball is 6-8)

Interesting

I am looking at Paul Reed of Depaul with our Clippers pick (unless Precious Achiawu falls)

Cassius Winston with Charlotte's #2 - though I havent given it too much thought (Virginia athletic big would fit if we dont get Reed - and Latvian PG is interesting)

Knicks Knox tweaks shot to nix shots not knocked down
« Reply #11254 on: February 20, 2020, 04:59:30 PM »

Knox would go on to mention that he adjusted his shooting mechanics over the All-Star break, hoping to improve on his 36.8 percent shooting from the field.

"One hundred percent," Knox said. "That's something I worked on, just changing up a little mechanics on my shot a little bit. I think I'm a good shooter, percentages don't show, but I know that I'm a good shooter. People around me know that I really shoot the ball. Just little tweaks here and there to my shot that I did over All-Star break and these last two practices, and I think it feels really well. Get back into the game, get some game shots tomorrow, and the rest of the season we'll see how it goes."

The baby guards actually did a nice job overall. The absolute rebounding dominance and our inability to contain forwards who can put the ball on the floor proved too much in a hard fought effort. When playing the Pacers, if you knock out Warren in the first half your chance of winning really improves. He has really come into his own in that team under McMillan.

How do Randle, Barrett, and Knox learn ball security over the offseason?

More than 1/2 the minutes played were given to guys we’ve taken in the last 3 drafts.

Fucking Knox is a horror on both ends.

Nice run at the end

Still cant get my head around Frank starting the second half after being so seriously outplayed in Half 1.  7 point lead grew to 17 - and alas - too tall a hill to climb, even given late heroics.

Intesresing box score from last night's Celts-TW game.

Don't recall ever seeing one quite like it before

https://www.espn.com/nba/boxscore?gameId=401161472


https://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/celtics/2020/02/22/celtics/vd3IaDfFMmusFSLJSA4TvJ/story.html

MINNEAPOLIS — On Jan. 20, 1960, the Celtics stormed to a 144-126 win over the Knicks.

Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, Tommy Heinsohn, and Bill Sharman — future Hall of Famers who that year would lead Boston to its second of eight consecutive NBA titles — all reached the 25-point mark in the game. More than 60 years passed without that happening again.

But on Friday night, with All-Star point guard Kemba Walker out with a sore left knee, the Celtics sent a new foursome into their record books as they snagged a 127-117 win over the Timberwolves. Gordon Hayward (29 points), Jayson Tatum (28), Jaylen Brown (25), and Daniel Theis (25) led a powerful performance by the starters, who combined for 117 of the 127 points.


Box score to the Jan 20, 1960 Celts-Knicks game.

Didn't really need him last night, (no KAT) plus Theis had a huge game
