I also think we have too many guys that have nothing to play for and are uninvested in this team.
How can you be uninvested in the team when you’re contending for a title?
One would assume. But TJ and Bazely know they aren’t going to see any playing time and are goners next year. Craig always plays with a meh attitude. Ish and Biyombo are just happy to be on a team. We all know Ayton could care less about Basketball in general.

Sometimes ya gotta win ugly, Orlando has beat a lot of good teams, and the Suns just didn't have it tonight. I'll take the W.
Jones and Vogel gotta go.

What is wrong with Ayton? He had a wide open 10-footer that would've sealed the win and instead tried to pass through two defenders.
He's trying not to be too aggressive.

I think the penny has dropped for some that without KD this team will be lucky to get out of the first round. We aren't contending for a title if KD comes back at less than 100% or doesn't come back at all in the post season.

I missed this one due to the NCAAs and family stuff. Kept half an eye on the box score. Glad to see Payne had a good game, and we got a lot of scoring from the bench. Hope Book and Ayton are okay; this team really needs to get 100% healthy for the playoffs or it'll be a short trip.

When I saw that, I thought it was more along the lines of, "Oh man, I just screwed up at a critical point of the game."

Feels like we've struggled against the Magic before and they're the type of team that can give us trouble - young and athletic, plays fast, a bunch of versatile bigs and quicker scoring guards. I was in and out on the game but Okogie's block at the end is a tremendous play. Really good to see Cam shake loose, he got into a nice rhythm early on and we needed it. Thought Jock had some good minutes, Ross looked better, Book's legs looked heavy.

The team is disinterested or tired or both. I think the heavy minutes are taking a toll and these guys are banged up right now but won't admit. The concern now has to be avoiding burning out CP, Book and DA trying to finish strong and hold onto the 4th spot or even try for the 3 spot. We're just in a tough situation with a thin roster due to injuries.
