Oh, I'd give Kawhi more credit than that, he's not an idiot. He surely saw that JV was out there to give up the lead, and was ALSO out there for the run they made to take it back before subbing out with an 8 point lead. If he wanted to give that answer he's much less aware of what was going on out there than I'd assume.
Now, JV had a bad game for sure. But he was hardly the one reason they weren't playing well for some stretches and didn't prevent them from playing well for other stretches. Still, yes, I was about to throw my remote at him on the screen if he bobbled another chance on the roll into a turnover.
I did really like seeing the bench unit get to work not just with Serge but also Pascal for stretches. They looked way better than they usually do, but when the pieces fit that's what happens.
Bench had shots falling and played their best game this season but still had issues with being passive, over dribbling and too many possession that went nowhere. But notable improvement and hoping more will come regardless of who starts.
As for Jonas, it is annoying how he still takes way too much time to make non trivial decisions on offense and it is discouraging to see him still struggling to decide and execute passes out of rolls. But I'm not expecting him to improve there before December. He just need a bit more than than rest of the team to adjust and integrate. But this has been the best start to a season he has ever had so that is solid. Rejuvenated Ibaka on the other hand is kicking some major ass on both ends although he also needs to improve his decision making. He has been rebounding well lately, 8.4 rbpg, 2.2 offensive.
