Down 8, but despite Nova making 7 more 3's, X is still within striking distance. Scruggs only has two points, which will change in the 2nd half. Hankins and Jones only have one foul between them, and X is taking care of the ball. When was the last time we still had hope at Nova at halftime?

Harden - when he makes a 3 in a game , he is 10-15 from 3 in those games.
When he doesn't make a 3, he is 0-13.
He goes 0-2 in 1H.
Needs to stay on the bench in the 2H
Wow, that's telling.

5 dimes for Naji.
He has made some great passes.
He is now below 20% from 3 for the season.
Easy solution - quit shooting 3's.

Only 4 TO's
Would love to see Welage get a little warm
I would put the ball back in Scruggs hands in 2H.
Let Q play off the ball

Hankins gets the ball down low and dunks... Jones try that more.
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.

Proud of how the guys played in the 1H.
Not playing scared.
Need to have a few more shots go in and make sure the right guys are taking the shots.
Solid half for Castlin - 5 points on 2-3 shooting, 5 boards and 1 assist.

Unlike Hankins, Jones has a tendency to bring the ball down instead of going straight up. He also waits for the double.
