Watching Eli's game blossom has made him my favorite player on this team.
I have found myself having so much natural confidence in him – one of the best pure guard on-ball defenders we have had, and he is so understated about it.
Thinking about the start to the second half, everyone, including Eli, seemed to have the go-ahead to take shots. I hope Tad pumped the team up after that ugly first half on offense and told them to fire away. Even though Maddox & Eli laid a few bricks, it opened the game up.
All that to say, still looking for Eli to press more on offense as his problem is confidence not ability.
