Your boy TT stank the place. Why no mention?
I would think next game against Toronto. Thompson will be put on Siakam and Love on JV.
Thompson pulled in 13 rebounds.
Starting lineup shot 27% and gave up 32% from three.

Siakam meanwhile was guarded by Love ending with Thompson on the Closeout who was guarding JV.

I would imagine Lue will put Thompson on Siakam and Love on JV in their next game against Toronto.

Love was 1-9 with Thompson on the court.

yet the starting lineup was -5.

We had literally no defensive pressure on Torontos Guards who were allowed to hit the paint at full speed constantly.

Defense didn't look any better when Thompson was off the court .

Yeah TT needs to stay on the perimeter instead of clogging the paint looking for offensive rebounds when Love is iso on the elbow

I'm not talking about the defense. The offense is the problem.

Look, Tristan's ORTG/offensive impact is largely tied to his offensive rebounding and screen setting. The issue is, is that the new rules don't allow Tristan to be that effective in the 2 areas that were his best suits. Why? because almost all of his screens were illegal and weren't called. Now he has to set legal screens because the refs are calling that shit now...the way he had been grabbing players- he can't do that now.

The other issue is the 14 sec shot clock. His put back efficiency/.PPP will significantly go down now because the offensive efficiency after an offensive rebound will go down if you have to restart the offense, and since TT can't go up right after a rebound it will as a result decrease our offensive efficiency with him on the floor.

He has to be strong in those two areas because he doesn't provide any offensive value outside of that. Now that he can't screen as effectively his PnR efficiency and the ball handler's efficiency that he screens for will also go down. He won't get easy alley-oops, so he will have to develop some kind of range and a mini hook shot. He does have his mini hook shot, but how effective is that really? last game he couldn't even attempt them because Ibaka was blocking his shit.

Tristan last night killed ur offense because our offense is heavy on PnRs, and he was a non threat in this type of play.

As far as the defense, again, it wasn't my issue. It wasn't good by any means, but it wasn't the big issue. The issue is this:

Tristan's ORTG: 60 DRTG:110

Zizic's ORTG: 181 DRTG: 115

And Tristan played with much better all-around players. Zizic had to play with Clarkson, Sexton and Dekker. It's amazing how good Zizic was surrounded by such net negative players and that TT was such an offensive hole with much, much better players.

a one game sample really?

Thompson had 6 screen assist and moved the ball around. not his fault guys forget they were supposed to be pushing the ball instead choosing to let the offense collapse around him.

You want to ignore his teammates shot 27% on wide open shots and single out Tristan as the problem.

keep the blinders on.

Zizic was actually defended on one shot the other baskets Ibaka was double teaming and essentially ignoring Zizic. meanwhile Tristan was actually being guarded.

Tristan didn't have a great game .. he didn't have a horrible one either and the Cavs as a team were just having issues in this game at all.
