Apricot's In-Game Notes
No JFK today, but incoming Mooses
Moses emphasizing on-ball creation. Airball, clanky bank, charge. Not his wheelhouse yet.
Mooses forces a pass down the lane, turnover. Immediately steals the ball back. Bricks another three, but not a bad shot since Mawugbe was under the basket and gets the OREB. Then M fans on a layup and dunk. This is not a serious game or else I'd be readying the Zen post game mind wipe
Jaquori has settled the game down. Nice drive and dish to a cutting Moody (who almost fans on a dunk), then a quick offense 3 for Jessup. Moody looks a bit discombobulated from the bad O. He's started losing people on D. I'd like to see him lock down on D and make his impact there.
For all of the Moose droppings, GSW D has generally been good, and they've used Ayayi as an instant "get the ball back" machine. GSW actually up 10.
Jessup has fully settled in. Pops a 3, then a nice pass to a dunk.
That is a fascinating shape bandage on Cacok's head.
And that is a gorgeous bank shot by JaQuori.
JaQuori's best game. Undisputed controller of the ball and a sweet dime.
Moody, on the bad side, seems completely gun shy from holding the ball for more than 1 second now.
Moody was ultra ball dominant for the first five plays and it wasn't working. Since then, he just doesn't seem to want to handle the ball. I wonder if that "chest contusion" which kept him out of Game 5 is actually bothering him. I assumed it was a made up injury to justify holding him out.
You can watch the JaQuori and Jessup highlights afterwards. They are playing great. The Lakers team is no juggernaut.
Cacok started with a cross bandage. Now with a square bandage. My ESP tells me the next bandage will be three wavy lines.
Moody really does seem bothered when he messes up on O (this immediately followed his turning it over on an ambitious pass to the baseline cutter). At least today.
Mawugbe huge block to erase Moody's mistake to mis-guard the 45 degree cut. Moody finally sees a 3 go in. [Actually was his second 3.] I hope that settles him in on O (and D since his bad O seems to be messing with his D focus).
His current line doesn't look so bad, 4-9, 2-6 from three, 10 pts, but it doesn't capture his erratic play today.
Ah summer league. Jessup was open in the left corner, then under the basket, then in the right corner and finally the ball gets handed off to him, bringing two defenders.
Jaquori and Oliver showing some chemistry on the PNR
Call me a wuss, but I don't think they should play zone or press in SL. Yeah, those are legit defenses, but they are overpowered against teams that have played together for a week.
Kyle Guy has "you have got to be joking" body language on every GSW foul
Moody good cut. But play before he got burned going for a steal in the corner, next play he overhelps off the other corner leaving an open 3.
A bit surprised to see JaQuori off-ball and Guy on-ball down the stretch.
Guy with a very good find of the Moody cut, but... at the other end, Moody again overplays going for the ball fake and gives up the drive and score
Good thing is that I think there is a lot for Moody to look at on film (all the overplays, the pressing too hard, the losing focus on D), so this hyped up scrimmage can be a real learning experience.
