Adam Silvers first huge imprint on the game should be to get rid of hack a whoever. What a vibe killer. Fuck that was awful.

This team needs a brake desperately. Amir seems to be totally out of his game, JVal has hit some kind of a wall, Ross hasnt had a decent game since the 51p performance and even Lowry seems to be tired and not playing that well lately.

If I was Casey I would use more Novak and TH in next few games, just to have more energy.

I didn't really think about that part, but basketball is supposed to be a free flowing entertaining game, and doing that bullshit for half of a quarter made my friends and I turn the game off because it was so painful to watch.

If the NBA made hack-a-whoever and flops 2 shots and the ball, the game would be so much better.

Thank god Brooklyn and Washington had even worse loses tonight. I

just wish we somehow win one of the two next games and get re-energized after all-star break. At this point Im starting to think it was good that Lowry didnt make it and that its unfortunate that Ross is dunking and JVal in rookie game. They would need the rest too. At least Amir will get rest.

Jack made a good point about lack of practice time effecting the defense. They have a chance to tighten that up now. This just looked like the end of a long trip.

Before this 5 game swing I thought to myself, 'I'll be content with 2-3'. But the blase effort bedeviling this team early in road games is too troubling for contentedness . And not just on this west coast trip. The Raps have dug big holes for themselves on Eastern stops as well - Boston, Charlotte.

Either way its still 2 points. I see player's get hitched on a dunk attempt lots of times.

Seeing Amir fade away like this is sad. If he's hurt,just sit him until he's healed and start Tyler. Johnson needs to quit shooting the 3 too,its making him laid back.

I wanna see more consistency from Ross on offense. Specifically with attacking the hoop and putting the ball on the floor and stepping into his shots.

Yet again the Raps did not show up on the defensive end last night. Only positive thing is we now have 6 home games the rest of this month and only 2 road games.

With the teams we are scheduled to face over the next 8 games, I don't see why we can't go at least 5-3 though I'm pushing for 6-2.

the worst thing about hacking is that it's not even working, unless you really want to stop the flow of the game. Jordan shot 50% or so on those FTs, and allowing 50%FG is not all that efficient.

slowing the pace of the game, and taking Griffin and Crawford out of the flow was the main requirement that was answered. Had Toronto hit more freethrows and a hit on a good four or five in close that rimmed out, it would have had a really good chance of working.
