50 is doable. Harden is the only active player who has ever scored 50 in back to back games. Booker looking to join the club.

From what I found, it looks like only Booker, Harden, Bryant, Jordan, Iverson, Jamison, and King have had back-to-back 50 point games since the 1976 merger.

This loss is completely on Igor. How idiotic to bench Ayton for no reason. Holmes has been awful on defense.

Crunch time is when Ayton shines defensively. So stupid to have your #1 pick sitting on the bench.

Booker was crazy good again. Love watching him when he plays that well.

The rest of the team and coach is a dumpster fire. Add Thomas f*** Bryant to the list of Aytons kryptonite. Like really dude? Thomas Bryant is garbage. Ayton had no idea how to stop him or even box him out. Aytons such a panzy and I think Igor just got tired of it. Unfortunately Holmes didn’t do much better for whatever reason.

Bender is so frustrating. He plays really well tonight and makes everyone think he’s going to turn the corner. Not me. Not me anymore. I’m done. I just want him off the team for the sheer fact he won’t be able to get my hopes up. He can go to whatever team and be an all star or whatever. I won’t even care. He’s too maddening to try and figure out.

I’d be interested to hear the conversation from management to Igor about Jimmer not playing. Igor going to get himself canned for losing and then not following orders on top of it.

Melton. Man he’s bad.

Why does this team at times on offense look like they e never played with one another. Throwing passes into the stands or passing to a player who’s not expecting it. Sheesh.

I can't see Igor keeping his job after tonight. I'm sticking with what I said awhile back, if he can't even get 22 wins he has to go.

Coach only has 2 starter quality players that are healthy on the roster.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

He has nothing to win games with. You can't win games with a young roster and one exceptional player anymore. LeBron James just missed the playoffs. The Lakers have had back-back-back #2 picks.

After Monday night I'm not surprised that Jimmer sat. Booker seemed ok with it after Monday's game, but I could absolutely see him talking to Igor in private and him benching Jimmer.

Wow. Another masterful performance by Booker. The 22 year old is amazing. Next year is going to be fun.

Booker is on another level right now. 50 points on 66% FG, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal and 1 block. Believe it or not, his ability to score reminds me of Steve Nash if he had been more of a scorer. Great control of his body, doesn't have the athleticism of other elite players but knows how to create separation and has a knack for hitting circus shots, beautiful shooting form. How can anyone call Booker an empty stats player when he's so efficient?

Not sure how I feel about Booker's big games coming in the last 2 weeks of the season. These past two games, the 70pt game against the Cs last year. Feels a little bush league/AAU considering our record and the fact we don't win those games or get blown out. I know the roster is depleted but still...it makes him a target and make the org look small time.

What would you prefer he do? Sit? Pass the ball to guys who can't score so we are blown out by 30? What is the other option?
