Poeltl and Siakam are part of a bench that is now shaping up to consist almost entirely of players who are 24 or younger, including Norman Powell (who could start), Bruno Caboclo and rookie OG Anunoby. They’re a big part of what the Raptors hope is a rejuvenating facelift for a group that seemed to have stagnated after reaching the conference finals two years ago and falling back to the East semis last year.
Elite Kids Michael Jordan Jersey Toronto was able to achieve most of what it set out to do in what was a necessary overhaul to stave off the luxury tax and give this team an opportunity to grow. But the one player — Valanciunas — the Raptors were not able to move still lingers, and he remains the biggest question on the team’s roster.
Friday night was a prime example. Hardaway Jr. scored 36 points off the bench to help the Hawks nearly overcome a 25-point deficit.
Sound familiar, Atlanta?
I worked with Timmy a lot, it was great to see him get buckets like that, Korver said. I told him to go get all his money. He’s earned it.
The Hawks are 35-26 after the tough loss against the Cavs. If the season ended today, the Hawks could see the Cavs for the third consecutive year in the playoffs — this time trying to stop a familiar face.
Limited Womens Jason Hammel Jersey It’s hard to be mad at (Korver), Paul Millsap said. I played with him in Utah and he’s such a stand-up guy. He’s one of the main reasons I’m in Atlanta today. As much as I want to beat them, I respect how that team operates and it fits Kyle perfectly.
Easily overshadowed by the vicious dunk in this clip is the All-Star-Game-caliber defense that Holiday plays on Westbrook, giving him an unobstructed path to an annihilation of Jrue’s prized new teammate. He barely moves. Take a look at other highlights from this game and you’ll find Holiday loafing around listlessly on a number of defensive plays similar to this.
This is startling for a player who comes with a strong defensive reputation, and considering the Pelicans defense is 4.2 points better per 100 possessions with Holiday on the court this season.
