With only three games left on the schedule, Mark and Caitlin reconvened for one final episode of “Start, Sub, Sit” to discuss why the close of the season has felt like preseason.
Recapping the week in Pacers, the idea is to create a basketball-themed version of love it, like it, or leave it via specific moments or trends from a specific set of games, whether on court or off. In essence, Start means “more please,” Sub is “cautiously optimistic or on the fence,” and Sit is “enough already.”
- Ranting about how to evaluate games when the games technically don’t matter
- Tyrese Haliburton getting to the free throw line and showing consistent effort
- The good and bad of Isaiah Jackson (finally!) defending at the four
- Buddy Hield throwing grenade passes
- The final 8:28 seconds of the loss to Detroit, in which Saddiq Bey, Isaiah Stewart, and Killian Hayes did not play and everything that implies
- Questioning what, if any, habits are being built on defense
