Theo John. Set the tone defensively, seemingly denied everything inside and grabbed every rebound. Not pretty on offense, but played aggressively and earned his points. By far the best game of his career so far.

Undoubtedly Markus. Flirted with a triple double and absolutely ran the game like a lead guard. Shooting was off but was on in every other way and made every other player on the floor better. Easy choice.

I'd have no problem with Theo, Markus or Sam.

Knowing that Markus and Sam will win a bunch of these makes my heart want to give it to Theo ... something that's easier for me to say because it wouldn't be charity at all.

Theo had a heck of a game.

Thought the ball stuck too much with markus. He had an open guy a 5+ times and held the ball too long.

Not concerned about his shooting. Just wish he'd move the ball a little quicker. Too many times he took 4 stationary dribbles and passed to a guy who was no longer open. Maybe that decision making improves with time on the floor.

I'd go with Sam. Theo/Markus HM

Markus will have plenty of SOTGs but you can't tell me shooting 2-12 and 5-16 warrants that consideration. You've gotta know when to fold em and he didn't.

Buddy I was with said it felt like they were trying to pad his stats towards the end of the game. I wouldn’t blame them if they were. Gotta have big numbers if he’s to be considered for any of the end of season awards.

1.  Markus had a great floor game.  He's not going to shoot 50% or better for the year behind the arc, but he had 7 assists and only 2 TOs.
2.   Theo was a beast.

Theo for sure.

Markus looks much improved in leading on the floor and handling the ball... but I thought he took a couple shots that didn't need to be taken and didn't get the ball to teammates at all the right times.  These are small and nitpicky thoughts though, as more often than not he'll make many of those shots and his passing/handling game is so much improved.

It was, but he was in control. You could see that from the jump. He was surveying the court better, getting inside to grab boards, and even his improved defense, he was simply the best guy out there.

Theo had a great night, and Sam was also good, but Markus was the most indispensable guy on the floor.

My vote: Theo

I'm excited by the prospect of that guy being completely opened up now to playing his style. Who cares now with so much depth.

Imagine going up against this guy? Very intimidating and he was going up against some super weak-looking guys. Setting a physical tone down there impacted the game significantly (UMBC, but still, a good sign).
