No heart. Lakers should look to try and punk another team into giving up an all-star player for him while he has any stock left.

Had 2 steals, and could have had 10 assists and more if players didn't blow his good passing.

If Zo doesnt change that awful mechanic motion, should consider dealing him already. Bron needs that spacing.

Until Zo learns how to shoot the basketball, I still think highly overrated as a number 2 pick. Should have been top 15 or 20 maybe. Broken ugly shot will haunt him if he doesn't try to fix. Who cares if you can pass the ball when you have one of the most broken shots ever. I could slap his stupid father letting him develop that god awful stupid ass form.

We would be selling low if we trade him now.

He doesn't need a shooting coach... he needs a psychiatrist or an exorcist.

Why else would he shoot 41% from 3 in college... then shoot poorly his first few months in the pros... then shoot well for two months... then shoot poorly again?

It's mostly mental... otherwise he'd just stay at a generally mediocre level and not have bursts of competence.

it's really not that crazy for rookies as they are trying to figure out the NBA game, and scouting reports are chasing them all season, requiring constant adjustments, etc.

Oh yeah, I haven't given up hope on him... I just wished he'd keep shooting instead of hurting his teammates by allowing defenders to cheat on his passiveness. I feel for him right now, but I think he'll come good.

Disappointing effort. Another winnable game goes in the loss column. Too many of those lately...similar to early season problem.

Hopefully they save face on Thursday. Can’t lose to a team on their 3rd game in 3 nights and 5 games in 6 nights. On effort and rest alone, they have to win that game.

I missed most of the game. Saw we had a good start then went downhill, especially in the 3rd qtr. Oh well, for me this was an expected loss as is the next game.

Zo gets 6 assists in the first quarter. Now with 3 minutes to go his has 7 to go along with 4 points (single digits in 5 straight games)


he does a good job at setting a pace early....but he needs to get better at resetting to pace later in game when he returns and it has slowed....its like when he comes back in, he often just either chooses to play at the pace at the time or cannot force his pace back onto the game


Yeah, he pushes the pace relentlessly to start the game but goes with the flow when reinserted. I wonder if it has to do with him letting IT run the point. I said it before. For being so quick, IT plays slow.


no idea....I see what I see, but rarely know how to fix or alter....I identify problems....not resolve them


So, you are not Mr. Wolf?

Can’t believe I’m saying this but our point guards have to be better.

I worked too late to see this game, but looking at the box score I have to ask: what the hell happened to our backcourt??????

Totally missed the game due to obligations...

Did we just give up or what? Noticed BI was out again. Really don’t have much to add without a film session on this game.

It wasn’t lack of effort was it? That would be the main thing with me.
