Eric has the most hot-cold personality while playing. Can be totally unfazed one second and screaming wildly/flexing like a madman the next.
I would not want to match up against him in a pick-up game, much less a pro basketball game, I’ll tell you that much.

On/Off ratings so far this year:
On – 186 minutes – (minus 5.1 net)
Off – 1,024 minutes – (plus 11.4 net)
Though it should be stated that he’s been slightly better on v. off in the last five games. Only a positive net of 2.9, but the team is at plus 2.7 with him off the court. Restrict it to his last three games and the numbers look even better.
You can dive a bit more into how he’s done offensively (increases in PER, TS%, 3PArate, etc.), though I think we’ll find more value in a week or two if he sustains a level of play that forces Bud to defer to him in place of DDV/Patty C. Suffice it to say he’s getting into a groove on both ends.

Anyways, a wonderful win that will have repercussions months from now with the tiebreaker implications
Thought the team hung tough when the offense was gummed up and the Raptors fighting their way right back out of deficits.
Giannis coming out firing in the third was a huge boost. The offense moved away from set-ups that would feed Giannis in post-up situations and a quick Toronto double to something more open allowing Giannis to jam his way through lanes. Glad he hit the rhythm three to start the game and generally pleased he was able to find a way to get going even when human walls were thrown at him.
I was telling this to the other BH staff, but you can’t help but get excited seeing how committed the team is to moving the ball possession after possession. Sure, it means there will be times where a guy who has a chance at an open three defers to a drive-and-kick or something like that, but wow do I have to fight the urge to stand up when defenders are stumbling trying to keep up as the ball moves from right to left and left to right.

Both solid ideas
This was her first crack at trying something like this, so I’ll be sure to pass your suggestions along for the next edition!

Only recently discovered in this country
We had to find a guy who knew a guy who was the cousin of a foreign grape merchant to get them to Minneapolis for our event. Worth the effort, though.

Further, I submit to the People's Court photographic evidence of what a proper homemade cheese & meat board should look like...
Missed opportunity by me to say something about them not having me write to defend. I’ll get it next time!

Bledsoe-Connaughton only 140 minutes together, but a net rating of +25.2 is… a lot. Add Giannis with those two and you’ll only get 103 minutes to work off of, but the rating increases to +28.6.
Tough to get a feel since those groupings have only gotten about a fifth of the usage of other lineups, but the Connaughton Conundrum is an interesting one to look at.

Eh, fair enough. I, too, didn’t like how weak the defense was, haha.
