Wonder If Luke will finally rein IT in (I.E. not play him in crunch time).


if he didn't do it tonight....when it was obvious not the ideal time for him to be on the court....I do not see it happening


I agree that when Hart is here and we have the lead, that he should be closing... but IT had done well until the last couple minutes so there was no need. Just a team comedy of errors towards the end, but it ended up a character building experience hopefully. I think Luke was trying to help him bounce back from last game and it backfired.


I am just saying strategically....have a healthy lead under 5 minutes in game...make sure you have a good defensive lineup on the court

The past 2 games clearly showed how they miss BI. Some godawful decision making in the last few minutes of both games.

we need Hart too; we are literally depleted. Caruso and Wear are G-Leaguers for a reason.

So true. Lakers had no business letting that team hang with us.

I'd understand if it was a rookie thing, but KCP, Brook, IT all at the heart of it.


I'd understand it if a dude like Lillard just goes off. That dude went mamba. But against the Magic? That's what bothers me.

Seriously, if this is what a call is every time, why doesn’t the home team’s scorekeeper do this all the time?

i think team is starting to feel the absence of bi and hart,who in a way
neutralized and balanced our game.now we depend more on players like
IT ,Brook who are capable for best and worst at the same minute.
its a win,its a 6-1 run,but i think we are running out of gas

I'm actually not sure. I was too distracted by the clock and then the jump call. You're probably right.

either Luke is getting pressure from the FO, or he does not have the backbone to sit IT.....we had the lead under 5 minutes....IT should be on the bench


Yeah I do not understand why the (bleep) does Luke close with IT and a high offense, low defense unit when we're trying to close a game and we have an 11 point lead late? Or at least when we're up 7 with a couple minutes left?

Two games in a row, we blow 11 point leads in the final minutes.

Frustrating AF. Worst win of the season. But at least it's a win.



And what choices did Luke have actually? Play Caruso instead? Well, maybe. Caruso was +15. Or would you have liked to see some Ennis there?

Yes, if somehow our 2 max plan fails and he ends up with us... that should be the default setting... especially against playoff teams.

I'm totally in agreement with intelligent use of IT.

Lonzo grabbed the ball. That’s why so many of us were pissed the clock guy started the time early, since we thought it would be a reset and the game should have been over.

Same here. The team should be humiliated at how poorly they played at the end.

It was a joke "and if it's Wednesday" was the clue.

People are missing the fact that Lonzo knocked it out of bounds - There would have been 0.2 seconds left MAX, if the clock ran properly. They would have had to try a lob from almost behind the basket.

IT was balling in the 4th quarter up until the last couple minutes. Then he turned it over with dumb plays. Seems like he's done that a few times now.

Gordon had 28 and 14. Randle sure was in the last year mode on defence.

And yet no one acts like it happened, this call will be talked about for a good few weeks.... just makes you realize that we shouldn’t freaking feel sorry for anyone.

this is what I thought...Lonzo touched ball before it went out of bounds....some time would have came off.....Magic would have ball under rim with almost no time to do much
