Trae and Jabari looking good on D???You’d think we have a good defensive teaching coach or something. But it’s already been established that Pierce has no clue and isn’t head coaching material 🤔

LOL!

Rowland said that Parker couldn't play defense...Shut up Brad!

There's some truth in that. That's been the knock on him plus him saying...

Well, I don’t know I just stick to my strengths,” Parker said. “Look at everybody in the league. They don’t pay players to play defense.

He's played some defense in this game though.

This games just shows you that most players regardless of their physical gifts can play defense

Luka and Porzingis 14/35 so far tonight. Does anyone else play for Dallas? lol

Hardaway Jr. with 17 but Dallas is a sieve as well. 7 Detroit players in double figures.

8 TOs for Trae. Collins isn't the only one bothered by Orlando's length. They've been deflecting passes like crazy.

One thing in this game vs last game....you can hear the players talking on defense. So Pierce was right regarding 1st preseason game - no scouting of opponent, just roll the ball out and play.

Kinda hard to watch john out there

John has a hip injury, was probably to play - probably should have sat out. Even basic stuff he's struggling with.

Trae gets one open shot and drills it. Doesn't matter that's right in front of the logo. The real deal.

Trae is doing so much to offset those turnovers though

True. Him going hard on both ends really makes the difference.

Bruno is coming for that starting center spot by mid season. If he starts hitting 3's watchout..lol

I'd be ok with that.

While Trae played a heck of a 2nd QT and defensive game in general, he didn't control the pace in this game and was extremely TO prone. I was impressed with the rookies. All of them. I was impressed with Parker. Not a bad night but we gotta figure out how to limit the turnovers.

Is Damian Jones headed to the G-League? Real talk

I don't think so but I see him behind Bruno to start the regular season off. Len is the obvious starter.
