I'm only watching this game for the possibility of seeing more from Z.

Zizic = 0 minutes on the 1st half of a pre season game with a bunch of inactive players... Seems like he is just not in the plans of the coaches... Feel kinda bad for him cause he produces when he is given opprtunities
Lue wants to constantly switch everything, and that doesn't work with Zizic (not that it works that great either way).

Dekker still falls under player development

Hood is out today.

Preston is playing the other PF minutes.

Cedi tweaked his ankle and is out the rest of the night.

Nwaba and Clarkson are also out tonight.

Who should be “developing” tonight ahead of JR/Korver/Hill?
Late to reply but I would think guys like Zizic and Simmons would get more minutes here since they obviously won't be getting them to start the RS..

Yeah, thag is why if they won't even give the guy any opportunity then I just hope he gets traded or released even if I like him... He can play and he plays hard but the coaching staff will not play him because of they are so hung up of their scheme

One of the things I hope to enjoy this season is when we play spoiler and beat some team and the media who wrote us off. Those small victories matter too.

How’d the Young Bull look?!
Had some good passes, couple good jump shots. Want aggressive enough driving, but got some assists in the drive and kick. Pacers were really good defensively.

People are sleeping on the pacers. I think they might go to the ECF . Could see them beating Philly or anyone. They are just very good defensively. There looked pretty good. I like Sabonis a lot. Great modern center .

Seemed like he was hesitant to attack the paint as well - every time he got in the lane he was looking to jump and dish. That's commendable, no doubt, but he did seem to make a deliberate decision to pass the rock more often than not in this one.

Kobi Simmons is the worst defender I have ever seen. He put Zizic in impossible PnR situations.

Not sure I see much future wit hhim unless he improves his perimeter defense.

I don't get why Lue inserts his two way contract, camp invites and g-league players before Zizic. This is some very disrespectful shit. Waiting till the 8 min mark in the 4th in a blowout game where TT plays like absolute shit..? :/
