St. John's Game Thread

Postby Anti-Homer » Sun Jan 05, 2020 3:06 pm

On paper,

Both teams seem very similar as they're both 11-3, poor three pt shooting teams (X 29%, Johnnie's 30%), and take too many treys per game (20). Johnnie's resume is actually much better with two strong Quad one wins against AZ & WV, while X has yet to win or play one for that matter. X seems to have an advantage in the post, and hopefully they make this a priority, and Jones/Freemantle convert.

Vegas has X an 8 point favorite which seems high. If X doesn't turn it over, hit their free throws, and limit their number of threes, they win: 74-69.

Do we bark after 3 straight empty possessions for X?

You and AH do.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Carter's threes, one back board and one off of the rim. X is just cold from every spot on the floor. Good to see Kyky early

I'm barking after every careless play and I now have lost my voice. If we don't get back on D we are done against this team.

11-0 run and Steele finally calls a timeout?

One of our most seasoned teams and they have 10 turnovers in the first 12 minutes? So sloppy, how about Steele reiterating to get the ball to Jones that has turned out okay

Doesn't seem like X can score consistently enough to pull away
