What I see as the problem is that when we get a lead we start slowing things down too much. We aren’t a great halfcourt team offensively. When we are up 10 please stop this iso s***. Still push the ball after made baskets and stop watching the clock!


You can't keep up that pace when you're only playing like 5 guys. That's the problem. We can't play bench players for long because they suck so badly. Our starters play too many minutes it's impossible for them to keep pushing the pace.

Then in the last few minutes of the 4th quarter, they can't close out games because they can't score due to overusage.


Roster sucks lets just admit it lol


Beyond not having a backup C, it’s really not bad on paper...Rondo and KCP have just been awful and Hart has struggled.


I think its bad more because guys dont really fit as well as lack of big men depth

Magic needs to make a change and fast. Lebron cannot keep playing 40 minutes a game or he's gonna be useless in the 4th quarter and people think he's declining...lol.

Win by 50 or 1 is still a W. Given how uncohesive this team is still is, I'll take this win. Let's go Lakers!!

FO needs to get a rim protecting backup 5 that can rebound. Just won’t be able to sustain this too much longer.

Rondo/KCP/Hart need to step up or rotation is going to be a major problem too.

I dont like how the pieces fit

Right now our bench is Rondo, Hart, Lance, no pf, Williams
This line up is Undersized, consists of 2 ball dominant guys, one shooter, and asking to get killed inside and on the boards

Not sure where Beasley is, not that it matters

KCP suddenly sucks this year so that ruins depth.

This is where we stand .. if we want our best guys starting then the bench is gonna be a liability

I'm just telling myself that we're waiting to see what we have with Wagner before looking for backup bigs. It's pretty sad that our backup big is an undrafted 6'-9 guy who really only had one good game. That tells how bad our coaching staff failed with their Kuz playing C experiment and how bad the FO failed to get us a backup C.

We need to just throw Wagner out there. Williams hasn't done much since the first Spurs game. I guess you can't get away with a 6'9" center

I can go with giving Wagner a try, but either way they need a solution ASAP. McGee might crack soon.

I just watched the highlights again, Lebron/KCP/Hart need to play better D. lebrons D on that three that Barnes hit near the end was atrocious.

Interesting how past 2 years Luke was so concerned about the bench that he refused to start what alot of us considered their best lineup...always leaving someone we wanted to start to be an energy guy off the bench

What probably hurts is Hart has taken a bit of a dive for a couple games and he was probably being looked at to be a spark. I think he has good chemistry with Kuz, but with that second unit is with guys that maybe just dont complement him well.

Rondo was a positive plus minus in every game as a starter.

He wasn't good today but people are just looking for reasons to hate.

He did give up an easy layup to Barea... but other than that people are blowing his performance way out of proportion.

The team started out super hot for 6 minutes then slowly eroded the lead the rest of the game.

It was a team near loss.

The inexperience really showed tonight. So many mistakes from the young players. These players with 2-3 years more experience would have won this game by 20.

nope, not Luke, sorry.
The front office built him a bad bench, end of story.

I really don't understand how this team fares down the stretch in games. It's like they completely play the opposite of what got them any sort of length, quite frankly, they look scared.

I watched the Dallas telecast tonight and they made a point as if the Lakers down the stretch were playing to keep the lead rather than just playing.

I know this team is new, it's growing pains but this could have been a nice game to lead from start to finish and gain confidence because no confidence was gained after tonight...just the same old pattern.

That game last night feels like a loss. There is no way it should have been that close. What a choke job at the end of that game.
