We've exhibited piss poor late game closing even in wins. (bleep) concerning trend.

Lonzo is the worst shooter the NBA has ever seen. That is not hyperbole.


yep. Even Marion and Kevin Martin ugly shots were decent. Lonzo's is downright ugly and not effective at all.

Embarrassing effort... no excuse to give up 128 to a team playing its third game in as many nights. Wish the season was over tonight.


missing 11 of 12 3-pointers is equivalent to 11 turnovers

I bet a lot of these guys are in vacation mode, no way you can have so many mental errors.. the team is getting worse which isnít a good sign when we need to attract FAs

I'm sorry, Zo deserves all of the criticism that he's gonna get tomorrow. He is flat out no playing smart, and it's costing us games.

And don't get me started on IT! He won't be here next year anyway so, it doesn't matter!

I have no words anymore. There were plays where they left him so open he could've driven the lane. But no, he decided to shoot another 3...BRICK. Douche.

Ball is 11 of 61 from 3 (18%) over last 8 games.....that is an average of almost 8 attempts per game, and shooting 18%.

what's more embarrassing is when there is no defender near you, and they just dare you to shoot all day.

Rondo knows that feeling well but he made that clutch 3 against us. UGH.

Lonzo, don't be like Rondo man. Improve your shot EARLY in your career.

The fact that we're sitting BI for a little too long and opted to play 8! guys tonight and not Deng tells you all you need to know.
We have given up on the season and this is now just a case of letting the Rookies play as much as possible against good competition aka "tougher summer league"

Logic?

He was wide open from the 3 but if he drove to the lane, defenders were already settled there just waiting for him.

The only out for him was to shoot or to move and find another guy. Easiest option is to shoot of course when you're a professional player and wide open. Too bad Lonzo's shot is amateur level.

IT made 5 TOs in the first half... he only made 1 in the second which was a lazy entry pass to Kuzma that Kuz could've caught if he was more aggressive.

The team allowed more points when he was out than when he came on the court. His defense was bad, but he was not the problem tonight. He at least shot the ball competently and had a few assists lost to missed wide open shots.

Lonzo Ball is no good. Not sure when will he be. If Pop had him he would have traded Zo instead of DLo

My thoughts exactly, they donít want to play BI because they have nothing to play for I wouldnít be shocked if he gets shut down for the season

Magic brought in a shooting coach early in the season. Well, start adjusting Zo's form now. Bench him if you want to. This season is over anyway.

8 is too many for even good 3point shooters

You can allow more points and shoot worse or better at certain points.

I blamed IT for the last two defeats... this one wasn't on him.

I was very irritated with his lazy passes early on but he fixed it in the second half. Luke even did what we discussed and benched IT down the stretch, and they still lost. I don't mind blaming him when it's his fault... but this one wasn't on him.

Awful trend by the team since Ingram went down. They got away with it for a couple of games, but overall they've cost themselves some confidence boosting wins. Hopefully when Ingram's back he's effective immediately because Lonzo has absolutely no confidence right now. Losing 4 in a row. This team is way too streaky. Something needs to change for them.
