Should have rested Lebron and conceded the game like I've suggested. I knew we had little chance of winning. Now we're pressured to win the next game and overuse Lebron even more.

He's LeBron freaking James, single covered with an open lane.... and he throws it to Caruso? At the very least LeBron going to the basket and trying to finish I'd have preferred.

But he threw it to Caruso who hadn't had a shot in how long?

Single covered???

I tell myself beforehand that the Laker's could be in for several losses before the break, but losing always hurts the same.

I expected an L anyway and I’ll keep expecting one until we become a competent three point shooting team again. Under 30% is becoming a norm for this team.

I think he and AD had a pretty big voice in its construction. But, minus AD and DS what you see is no reliable secondary score, and no one else who can reliably create their own shot. Kuz has his moments but is hit and miss on offense.


Oh definitely. I think most of us would have made the moves that Rob made too. Now with the benefit of hindsight, I think Lebron and AD must know their chances of a repeat this year isn't as favourable as they would want.

Expecting some moves to be on the way, if not already.

One dribble to the right, olynek would’ve picked butler, that was no real double team, but bam was there waiting. The best thing he could do is one dribble and take a 3

LeBron made the right play, Butler sagged off Caruso to double-team LeBron the moment he caught the ball.

Just watched a replay. After recovering the ball, Caruso took too much time dribbling aimlessly. That pass had to get to LeBron early before Butler could double. I think Caruso panicked. This team really needs to work on late game scenarios. Guys panic too much

YIKES to the maximum


Monday will be a challenge with no DS. They can win it but they need to shoot decent from 3 (35%) and play solid D. Will be a tough game regardless.

Jazz game is a loss. No DS.

DS I believe returns for the warriors (or maybe next game). This puts the Warriors, Blazers and Suns games in reach.

BTW, I would like to see Rob get an additional body in.

Also, if I was coach, I would seriously consider giving McKinnie some run while DS is out for next 2-3 games.

Why was AC just dribbling like time wasn’t running out? Either pass it or shoot

It just shows you we can create the best shots, but unless someone knocks them down, it is a bad shot

Caruso isn’t that dude. He won’t take that shot, he is looking for Lebron to make that play 100%. You could tell he wasn’t ready. Same with Matthew’s bricking the play before.

Those guys don’t want that shot.

I’d rather see Lebron force it. Or worst case Kuz, he might miss but has the balls to take the shot with confidence.

To revert to Kobetan’s point, Yikes to the maximum would be Nets, Clippers and Sixers on back to backs.

Totally with you Doc on giving Mckinnie some burn.
Gotta get something. At least showcase him for a trade

Guys are just not pulling their weight.

Down 13 at the end of 1. The slow start bad habit continues and there isn’t an AD or Schroder to help LBJ save the day late.

Trezz and Kuz are the only ones semi-consistent.

Oh and the wizards aren’t as bad as that record. Bertans is back to being a sniper and when you combine that with Beal...

Looked more like Igoudala was waiting. And yes, to the right on Olynyk who wouldn't have been able to stay with James.

But LeBron called for a pass he was never intending on shooting based upon his body language.

But if I had to choose between LeBron forcing up a shot over Iggy or trying to create a shot for himself against Kelly Olynyk I'd have picked both over him throwing the ball to Caruso for the game tying shot.

LeBron 100% takes the shot if AC gets that ball to him immediately and not dribble away just to come back. Wish we had a timeout to settle down. Great deflection
