I think Russell believes turnovers are a part of the triple double.

Russ was hoping the turnover out of bounds counted as a turnover for him, but it didn't.

I want Russell Westbrook to agree to donate his game salary to charity every time he commits 6 turnovers or more.

We are a .500 team so it played out about right.

For some extra context Lebron was on a run of 30ppg for a few games, and he just missed 2 free throws in a row, that left him sitting at 26 points. Russ was trying to get him the ball so he could get two more cracks. Then Twolves score and Lebron gets 2 more whacks at it, possibly, maybe.

But yeah he took the 5 second inbounds violation instead because good lord what couldn't go wrong

THT +10. Johnson might not hold onto that starting spot for long.

Games like tonight where AD being back will help. Hope we're showing AD a lot of tape while he's out. Where he can fit in. We don't need 30 ppg post up AD. We need AD that many hate, which is to hover around the perimeter and then slide in and be aggressive into the paint off the ball. We need AD making some 3s. Most important we need AD defending like Stanley is, only because AD is a much better more talented defender (and rebounder) he can help a ton on this alone.

Ideally as soon as AD is back, Stanley comes off the bench and AD takes his role. Does it better.

I like Stanley's hustle. But since WB experience is what it is, there's no way we can get away with benching Monk. We need Avery's defensive energy. So that means Stanley's going to have to sit when AD comes back. We need some 3 point threats and the paint open, and we won't be able to run AD/Stanley/WB all in the same lineup. Not enough shooting. Alas, the RW experience.

Frank Vogel says he had to “resist the urge” to go big when they were getting killed on the glass. He feels the Timberwolves are a great “perimeter crashing” team so going with a bigger lineup wouldn’t have changed much.

That Houston team in 2020 was the perfect ensemble to maximize Russ's strength. A superstar who could shoot it well.

surrounded by shooters that could defend well.

Tucker
Gordon
Covington
House
Jeff Green

Even the bench were filled with shooters.

And they barely made it past OKC and got stomped by us.

The gameplan against Russ is already written and implemented.

We win a chip with Russ im willing to put Lebron as the Goat.

But it's never going to happen because winning with Russ is an impossibility.
