Why let reality get in the way of perspective?

Good game. Book just needs help out there. No Paul, No Cam, no Crowder. Ayton’s not going to get all his looks unless we have better shot creators or floor spreaders out there. I hope we can swing a trade for Kuzma. I think he’d be a good upgrade from Crowder and would unlock even more potential alongside Book, Paul, Bridges, and Ayton

Books got two players on combined $200M contracts out there with him. They need to produce consistently like they make that. There’s no reason Bridges and Ayton shouldn’t combine for 40 ppg together.

Bridges followed up his sexy 23/9/9 performance with a whopping 13 points. Ain’t cutting it.

I love how we think we can get one of the best players on other teams. All this talk about Kuzma as if he's gettable is just a waste of time.

Nice victory lap after his first engaged half of basketball in weeks.

He got more than 15! It means he cared (a little)!

Oh, right. 15 is the magic number. I was thinking it was 17.

Let’s not go crazy. That would require 10 rebounds, 5 free throws a block AND a steal.

This has been a rough stretch for us. I just keep telling myself that we're missing two starters, and that a third former starter refuses to play for us. That's a lot of talent that isn't out there on the floor for us. This isn't our full team. Hopefully we can just get through the next few weeks and get healthy and then we'll see what kind of team we really have.

Is it a rough stretch? The Orlando loss was bad, but one point losses to the Heat and Jazz is nothing to be ashamed of.

Yeah, asking for more than 5 FTA with a 7 ft. interior player, it's just plain greedy...

If Malik Beasley doesn't go off Suns win this game. At the same time, the Jazz had a red hot start.
