Really we should be 3-0 vs GSW and Houston..

This team could be .500 right now honestly


With better FT shooting and lineup management (like START KUZ) I believe we'd be the 8th seed right now possibly 7th

I'd be ok if they were 0-4 (Rockets thumped them in LA) against these two as long as they had beaten Phoenix at home, Sac, and the Clips.

Ah well. Young team and all that. THREE ROOKIES started and a 20-year-old 2nd year player? Kudos.

Our young guys play solid defense. Lonzo can be an elite defender down the road. Hart is solid right now. BI's length and I think Kuz can develop to a good pick and roll defender

Would've been the cherry on top if Kuzma had gotten 40.

DEFENSE is the key.

so basically lopez needs to be Deng'd rest of season. Bogut at least sets solid screens and plays tough


Lopez stalls/slows down the offense and takes looks away from Kuz, BI, etc. Bogut knows his role doesn't try to much. Better flow.

When are KCP and Lopez coming back? Can we pls keep this lineup for a few more games to see how it performs over a larger sample size?


Can we please trade Lopez and KCP.

And the most important aspect, he doesn't get 3 pt trigger happy like he's Curry. He knows his role.

It's no coincidence we get a quality win with Lopez and kcp out. Get a clue Luke.

Umm there was a guy called Kuzma in this game.


He didn’t defend Harden


Really? Kuz couldn't even make co-player of the game? Lol these guys make it so obvious

Kuzma was fantastic tonight. Brewer and Nance were also really really good.

JC and BI were awful.

I’ll be the first one to say it. We have 3 really low BBIQ players...JC/Randle/KCP



Ingram when plays as Raging Bull II is the 4th

Given that he scored 51 points, I'm not sure that anyone "defended" Harden.

Defense was on point tonight. The parts I saw, at least.

If we just hit our freakin free throws at 85% we would be at +9 in points right now and this game would be a blowout. How does a team stay perpetually bad at FTs? Is it the curse of having Shaq and Kwame on the team? I hate giving up those free points.


This team is physically so gifted but mentally so weak... when they gain the maturity to match their basketball abilities... they will be able to compete with anyone.


Last time I checked they are a young team with lots of rookies.

Really bizarrely paced game tonight. I didn't feel like Houston established their tempo at any point during the game. As usual we made some dumb mistakes in the final minutes, but fortunately we had a sizable enough lead to fall back on.
