guaranteed L.


I was shocked when I saw we were playing today. Meanwhile GSW played what Saturday and then donít play again until Thursday. The rich stay rich.

Like, NYC to boston I get but back to back should never ever be crossing more than 2 states.

So 4 out 5 blow outs without Lonzo the savior


bet you when he returns....no matter the score, Luke will never put a lineup on the court similar to what he has out there now, and has put out there every game since Ball got injured.


3 out of 5 starters are out. Even then he's put some pretty terrible combinations out there all season. The team is just bad


ok, bet even if Lopez and another starter is out...this type of lineup will not be out there


What are you suggesting, he's sabotaging the team?


I am saying on Christmas day, we're going back and forth with Minnesota....then right at the end of the 3rd and beginning of 4th....Luke puts out the worst possible lineup from the bench...Caruso, Brewer, Nance....Minnesota goes on a 14-0 run while Luke sets on his hands until a 3rd of the way through the 4th....we could not recover.

against the Grizzlies....we have the lead....Luke does the exact same thing around the same time....they go on a run, and we go on to lose.

we were never really close with Clippers...but we cut into the lead a little...was down to single digits....Luke does the exact same thing around the same time....they go on a run, we get blown out.

Rockets...decent lead...Luke does the exact same thing around the same time....they go on a run...catch up and beat us in OT.

Tonight, similar to the Clipper game....we are down 8-12 points near the end of the 3rd Quarter....and Luke pretty much pulls the plug and brings Caruso, Brewer, Blue and Nance on the court for extended minutes?

One player goes out injured, and suddenly we see these complete new lineups with some pairing of Caruso, Brewer, Nance, Bogut, Hart, Clarkson, Blue, Zubac for extended minutes each game at a critical point for the first time all season.

But they did say he canít guard bigger players. He did fine last night and from what I saw, pretty good against KAT.

For those of you looking for a bright side to this latest debacle:

The Lakers played them even in the 3rd quarter! (No need to focus on the Lakers being outscored the other 3 quarters)...

I'm glad I chose to watch the football playoffs over the live game.

Absolutely atrocious. Don't know how anyone can justify the argument that we are a better team without Ball at this point... It's the difference between hopeless and an up and coming team.

At least Luke had the balls to bench them... this wasn't fatigue... it was pure lazy garbage.
