    He'd have more assists if guys could finish or not fumble the ball close to the basket.

    In looking at Butler's offense when T is passed the ball the flow stops. Yes, he has 5 assists, but against this team that's not much. Also, his defense off the ball is lackadaisical - as a player shoots from outside he closes with an outstretched arm no higher than the opponent's chest. He used to close defensively but this year he doesn't seem to care.

    We've made some really good plays. The 3s will come but no excuse for the missed layups.

    I think the Dawgs are bored with substandard competition. As a paying fan I know I am.

    It looked like they came out with LJ telling them to push tempo as much as possible against these slugs, but when they started missing wide open shots (like Harris and Taylor from distance) and inside little bank shots then it all went to hell again for offense... unfortunately coach can't will them to pour in the baskets they are supposed to have the talent to make!

    Thompson has shown much more energy in the first 1.5 minutes of 2nd half.

    I wonder if they are just starting to develop a little chemistry. Remember one or the other was hurt for a while during the offseason/early season. It's kind of amazing that we haven't seen that combo hook up more for some dunks or easy buckets.

    Thompson felt a little too cocky there, lol. So did Bolden, who left where the rebound went to run back with 3 fingers in the air like that was cash.

    How many alley-oops will Butler have by the end of the game?

    Nice to see Tate getting ready to come in. Good game to knock some of the rust off.

    Was def hoping to feel more impressed than what I am seeing.

    We are going to need a player like Harris to go off for 20 plus a game if we want to be In games against better competition
