He's tired. He faded later in the season last year. That was a tough road trip.

Clutch 3 tonight, but he got abused by the Bulls playing as a big

Agree he needs to be involved more and he really should be the go to guy if you need a catch and shoot 3. Him handling the ball maybe not, but getting him involved in the offense is a good idea.

Might be off-topic for the forum but Cedi tweeted that he will donate 100 $ for every 3 made in tonight's game vs Bulls for the victims of the earthquake that happened in Elazıg, Turkey. The reason why he set a relatively low amount is that he wanted others to participate in the donation by following him. It worked like a charm as many others, most of whom are soccer players, were inspired by him and they also said they will donate the same amount. This might be usual stuff for you guys in USA since your athletes do a lot of charity stuff for the community and the less fortunate, but in Turkey, no athlete does anything publicly for the society. I like him as he will be the starter of change in this matter and he will encourage those like him to lend a hand for those who need it in Turkey.

I just hope that he (and the other guys) doesn't shoot bricks tonight, and it will be the first step to get soccer and basketball players in Turkey more involved in helping the community, especially in times of crisis like this.

Cedi and Garland should be the bench unit. Start Sexton at PG and start Porter Jr at Sg or SF.

I think Cedi disliked his role for Beilein and how much freedom others had to develop outside their box. Beilein wanted him to be 3 and D.

I'd like to see some of him and KPJ together trading ballhandling duty for their bench units. Mckinnie at the 3.

I am betting we see a better Cedi in this 2nd half.

Really good game by Cedi he basically saved the game at the end of the second quarter. It was a little disappointing he didn't take a shot in the second half until the end of the 4th quarter when he was cold but all in all a good performance.

It is weird that sometimes he is a great rebounder and he clearly has the ability to rebound well but oftentimes rebounds so poorly.

I think most of his rebounds are unopposed where he just sneaks in and the ball bounces his way while the opposing big man is wrestling with Thompson or Drummond. I saw a column today that said he's not viewed as a future starter.

The contract he accepted kinda hints he doesn’t either

Know thy role.


Cedi, like most, is a very useful player when going towards his strengths.

His best setting in my eyes would be a motion up-tempo offense and a trapping scrambling defense.

It's not easy to take rebounds from TT and Love. I think he gets more at the end of games when guys are tired
