Hilarious.

Masai is gonna gut this team very very soon.
Coach should be most accountable for the awful utilization of players. This lazy dibble dribble shoot offense is the result of no system installed during training camp.
Rudy and demar can only do so much when they arn't hot enough to score 1v1 and whole team stands there like a pylon.

Credit to them for fighting back and taking it to OT2

I can't remember exactly when Ross got fouled out, but Casey took Ross off of Harden and switched Gay on to him despite Ross clearly doing a superb job; and Ross remained on the floor for atleast 10-12 possessions before he got fouled out.

IMO that lost the game and it didn't really make any sense at all to me. I would say that TRoss' defense on Harden was one of the primary reasons we even got back in the game, and Casey took a match-up that was yielding favourable results and threw it out the window.

Scary thing is, Rudy might even be more stupid against the Grizzlies tomorrow night.

Perhaps because we beat the Jazz, Celtics, and Bucks? Two terrible teams and one well below average team? And looked awful doing it, with the exception of the game against Utah.

Meh

If you want to know how we've been progressing since Jay left, it's been better. Hell even when Smitch was coaching people still complained like we've had it bad.

I understand that fans are desperate. But shit happens.

lol that is what you call a ugly 30 point performance

but yea.. I like how hard they played yesterday.. but the raps are beating themselves.. Rudy and his bad shot selections are just as bad as turnovers. 37 Shots, and how many of those were ill-advised

It was a good game but a loss that shouldnt have been. I swear Lin's has got some nice foot work in his Iso.
He's healthy now and he's put the work in on his shot as well. Good for him. HOU might have found themselves a solid 6th man.

well I know Adams will be a player for OKC eventually already showing signs as a rookie, mean while lowry is turning into a back up pg, or average starting pg, a guy we won't even sign back in free agency

well I guess if you really look into the trade Houston won because they got Harden, then OKC got Lamb, Adams, and we finish 3rd with Lowry,

to bad BC didn't target Lin in the first place instead of Nash, we could have kept that pick and Masai could have drafted the Greek Freak

Harden would be somewhere else, and who knows where Howard would be, league would look different,

I think you misread me. I wasn't saying he wasn't a trainwreck on offense, i was saying that he at least contributed something. And for what it's worth he has been much worse offensively.

As much as i just want to hate on Rudy, i really want him to gain some value for some other team at some point. Casey really needs to get results in a hurry, or they should bring in someone who does not need to annoint someone as the best player on the team.
