Another embarrassing effort. If Deandre Olowokandi starts next gave I might throw up. He's pathetic. Have some f*** pride.

TJ needs benched too. Start Oubre.

I can't believe I saw Josh jump in the air and throw a baseball pass to a guy 5 feet away From him. I appreciate his energy but at what level of basketball is that considered acceptable?

I just don’t understand how we look so lazy at times. Maybe we need to start some of our energy guys to get us started on the right track energy wise.
I think we just have to tell them we’re down 30 at tip off. That’s the only time they start bringing some fire.

Warren really needs to learn how to throw the ball to warren when he’s all by himself under the rim. Not asking for any complex passing, just the simple lob or drop off pass.
He’s already good at that. He needs to learn to pass to others.

We finished at 53% from the field, almost 50% from 3, but you gotta play defense and grab some rebounds.

And you can't wait until you're down 20+ points at halftime before you start putting up any resistance.
The pattern has been to start playing hard with 3 minutes left in the 3rd quarter.

I'm starting to think that the winning streak might have been an outlier.

Knicks, Celtics, Mavericks, Magic, Wolves, Nets, Wizards, Clippers, 76ers, thunder, nuggets, warriors. Before we played these games, if you knew we’d win 5 and lose 7...which games would you pick as wins?

I’d guess most of us would pick 5 teams similar to the teams we actually beat. Knicks, Mavs, and Magic for sure. Celtics were the only real surprise win...maybe pick the wizards instead of them.

I don’t think the win streak was a fluke, we just finally played some beatable teams. We have been playing the best teams in the nba this homestand. Literally, all the teams we’ve lost to in our 5 game losing streak are top 10 teams that we should lose to. We’ve played with each team for 3 quarters...it’s just been 1 bad quarter in each game that has been our downfall. Earlier in the year we weren’t fighting back and just getting blown out the whole game. The Charlotte game on Sunday and the Kings game on Tuesday will be good tests. Those are winnable games.

Kinda makes you wonder why Igor wanted to draft this guy over his own boy Doncic.

I think the 3 shots had more to do with Ayton. He didn’t have it last night...didn’t play with energy, and ended up sitting and watching Holmes play extended minutes in the 2nd half
