Connolly picked up his first preseason point Tuesday, but head coach Jon Cooper was more impressed with his overall game. "There are just so many little things that are getting better about his game," Cooper told the Tampa Tribune. "Iíve been really pleased with him and heís a better player today than he was a year ago today."
Bishop (wrist) had no problems with his surgically-repaired right wrist after playing the full 60 minutes of Tuesday's win over Dallas. "The full game, it felt like it was midseason," he told the Tampa Tribune. "Iím ready to go."
