    DeShaun Thomas having a helluva game already.

    He is starting to look like a lottery pick... maybe the Cavs should start keeping half an eye on him?

    Matta has to find a way to get Ross looks

    We'll be bounced by the 2nd round If our 2nd & 3rd options are Smith & Craft. Doesn't help with Smith settles for deep 3's

    A Matta team yet again comes out at halftime at starts chucking 3's.

    How many times does this guy get completely outcoached in big games?

    This team just can't shoot. They have decent creators and get some good looks but can't hit any of them.

    Shannon Scott is better than Craft.

    Trey Burke Is better than both of them

    And he was In our backyard

    Matta has to start Ross & Williams ... Idk what Ravenel does good

    Going to have to develop Ross and Williams as quickly as possible. Ravenel just doesn't provide anything but fouls and is undersized against elite teams. Ross is the only guy other than Thomas that potentially has a pure enough stroke to make teams pay for clogging the middle.

    Aaron Craft has been a pretty big disappointment. He's a jumpshot away from being an outstanding player, but that has been the case for 2 years now and no progress appears to have been made. Smith is streaky. Thompson is raw. Scott is coming on, but his jumper is hideous.

    This team really needs to be a transition team that pushes pace continuously. If they continue to settle into half court games, it's going to be a difficult path through conference play.

    Not offering Burke was definitely a huge miss on Matta's part, especially considering he offered JD Weatherspoon who played on the same HS team as him, and he turned out to be absolutely nothing. I don't even know where he plays now.

    I also agree with them needing to run more. Scott - Thompson - Ross - Thomas - Amir/Ravenel would be very dangerous in the open court together.

    With the way this team plays on offense, they're prime for a first round upset in the NCAA tourney.

    If this team is going to run more, they have to start playing better defense to create transition opportunities. As long as Deshaun is on the court, we will never see great defensive possessions. Guy is either lazy or has no awareness whatsoever on defense. Too many times this year I've seen him stand there like he has cement in his shoes and swipe at someone driving right by him, or completely missing a rotation to help out.

    Not sure how I missed this gem...

    I will absolutely vomit if I ever see him wearing wine and gold.
