Dead wrong. Sorry to be so harsh but 99 points sounds good...40 % shooting is awful. 29% from 3 just as bad. You can blame the offence. They Shot 33/82. If they made 5 more of those shots they'd shoot 46%. That's at least +10 points probably more because those aren't opportunities for fast breaks against us. They had 15 turnovers, take 5 of those away and even less opportunity to run it down and get an easy open look because our defence isn't set. And to prove just how poor our offence is how about our Assist totals: 13 last night vs. 31 for the jazz. Our offence stinks!!
