it's hard.. the better the team plays the more it hurts when they lose.
I like DD, but I was actually upset watching him the last two possessions.. he is not there yet in the clutch, he panics. First an air ball.. then he doesn't even get his shot off. I wouldn't mind if he actually took the shot and missed, I could live with that, but to not get your shot off.. that piss me off

I might have to change my display pic after this one

Hopefully it has nothing to do with him being hurt. Amir and Tyler played well in the second half..

Love Demar, but the guy has absolutely no poise in late game situations. It's one thing taking laid back 18 footers the first 3 quarters but he looks flustered with the game on the line.

Sorry to join the angst party but Casey needs to fucking go,
DeRozan should NEVER be given last shot in the clutch, that's Kyle's job, Kyle is the All-Star.

I don't even want to argue. I don't have the energy. I'd rather just sit here and cry until it stops burning.

remember that time in portland, he lost his dribble, in this situation he picked it up cause his handle is weak. if he fixes up his handling, hell be better off the dribble

The only times I miss Rudy.

DeMar man wow, almost always so unclutch when we need him under 1 minute.

Keep the pic. How about being happy about Chicago not getting a shot off. Watch that possession again. DeMar played a big role in that. He played really strong defense all night. The team as a whole didn't have much going for it, but they fought enough to give themselves a chance against a team that is playing as good as any outside of the Clippers right now.

Both teams did a great job of taking away all the options. I thought we could have used more movement to give Demar some passing options, but it's not a bad situation to have learned from.

It hardly mattered anyways, because jeff said it wasn't in the cards before the second half barely started.

I can't see the value in going away from the offence that has been working to iso a wing player on 2 straight clutch possessions. It doesn't help that derozan lacks poise, as Jeff said earlier, but simply going away from Lowry, and away from the offence again and again makes no sense. Why change what works?

He hardly needs me to defend him. He had his team fighting to win a very tough game, when it would have been easy to have been blown out. Do you honestly disagree? Jeff the laughing man who waved the white flag repeatedly - how about you? You wanna disagree or just laugh like a fool?

I somewhat agree with this, but then again, what offense was really working? They had nothing but tough unassisted baskets all night. And they don't get any easier at the end.

The team played hard, but his last two play calls ruin everything he may or may not have done prior, period. Just like Demar, Casey isn't a finisher.
