Tbh Luke makes just as many mistakes in crunch time as the young core.

Just from a tactical perspective, questionable moves and kind of deer in headlights.

This was a massive loss because of the back 2 back vs the clips. I hope lebron and rondo come back after tomorrow and we only lose 2 games in their absence. Not good.

What happen to Zubac, did he get injured, he didn't play at all in the 2nd half, was it a injury or horrible judgement by Luke.

Damn tough loss. Hopefully Svi can be our Bogdonavic one day.

I think that if KcP never switched with Tyson at the end he would of guarded Bogdonavic a lot closer. Ah well gotta move on get ready for the Clippers tommorow.

Hopefully we’ll get our revenge on Sunday against Sac

20-15 and we dropped to the 5th seed

No sure why everyone is so upset at the players or coach, even though I don’t like Luke, but he is developing as a coach, and I can see him long term right now.

But this game it was close was mainly because of the ref, it was a string of bad calls in closing 5-6 minutes.

We could have won by 10-20 points if it was called fairly, completely destroys our momentum and let the Kings back into the game.

That was some BS calls on Tyson for moving screens.
It was at least 5-6 bad calls that changed the momentum of the game.
Props to our guys finishing tough, and Kings made a prayer in the end.

Games like this I don’t even get emotional watching the NBA since i know it is a business, and it is in the interest of the ref to keep game exciting and down to wire.

We will make the playoff for sure, Lebron is too big of a star for the league to not feature him, mostly likely we will be in the second round this year as well, the key now is develop another star, and trade for a superstar by next year.

We blew a 13 point 4th quarter lead to the Kings!


Those effing cockroach refs had a BIG part in that. Creating drama... Ugh. That crew reminded me of early 2Ks.

However...another pissed away lead, another blown game. https://drinkslinger.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/urinalcake.jpg

Doesn't matter the roster, they were doing this crap with Brawn, too. I think of Pat Riley of old on this team. They'd have single digit losses. A fan can dream... Luke is truly dumbfounding. "We shoulda learned". You're still hoping they "learn" after 3 years of the same sh. Maginka please get rid of him.

But Ingram was the primary suspect/culprit.
His turnovers and misses fueled their run and he barely made the first key FT and bricked the second.


His ceiling is low. At least til he stops the Jekyll and Hyde act from game to game to game... He got shoved and pushed all night. Looked like he was trying to lift a car off the ground when he tried to drive on a defender in the 2nd quarter. Needs to eat a lot of calorie dense weight gaining bars. He should have one in every pocket. He is awkward as hell.

Couldn’t have said it any better. Can’t believe some see a star in this guy

Still a tough loss to swallow. Some minor adjustments, remove the iso dribbling until the late clock, and making free throws would have made this a win.

17 turnovers. 6 from Kuz, and 5 from Ingram.

If Lebron and Ball make a few turnovers it's because they're throwing eye-popping passes. Ingram was just getting stripped and Kuz was flat out throwing it straight to the Kings players

I had to rewatch that one Kings possession over late where they missed what seemed like 2 easy layups because I felt lucky that seemed to ice the game, wrong.

Horrible way to end the game, but I really liked the play up until they blew the lead. Everyone was clicking, and it showed on both ends. I think once the Kings made that final push the confidence faltered and that wrapped it up.

I expect to get blown out by the Clippers but who knows. Maybe Rondo gives it a go and wants to show up his old coach.

worried about

Kuzma shooting everything trying to play hero
Ingram forcing dribbling too much with no Lebron
Lonzo crawling into a shell with added pressure
Zubac not looking as good with no Lebron
Hart fouling a 3 point shooter


1. There was some of this ...but overall I liked his aggressiveness.
2. Bingo! was fine for 3 quarters but in the 4th you were 100% correct.
3. Absolutely wrong, challenge accepted and met by Zo
4. Zubac was okay we went away from him for Tyson's vet leadership
5. that would be Kuzma and their young guy made all 3 Ft's while BI missed his

I actually had trouble going to sleep after that devastating loss. I wonder if it had any affect on the young team? I thought we had a win even after losing a large lead. It was the most disappointing loss of the season for me. A 3 point pray answered for the Queens. It's the same-o same-o this team can't close.

FTs were our killer.

1. You nailed the biggest issue with Kuz
2. Yep!
3. Noticed this too. It seemed prior to his breakaway layup as if ZO's confidence was quickly sapping from him in the 4th while Fox was gaining. On a couple of possessions, in the fourth you could clearly see that Fox was in ZO's dome.
4. Zu has never played well with ZO. Just doesnt Mesh. Was true last year as well. Also tonight, it seemed like he was getting clobbered with no calls.
5. The bonehead mistakes were huge down the stretch.

I think this was the last time we lost at triple zeros since Jimmy Butler did it with the Bulls in 2014. He has so many clutch shots, I can't even find the clip of it. I dunno if he's underrated as a clutch shooter. He's got a lot.

Prior time to Butler was a couple in 2009. Iguodala hit one at Staples and we got beat by a ridik tipin by Troy Murphy of all culprits at Indy.

That's so long ago, it's in the "unviewable video" era of YT:

Lakers blew a 17 pt early lead, so they deserved this. I remember them playing as lazy as possible until the final minute.

Iguo. That one sucked, too. Trev, you're not even gonna make him bat an eyelid by not jumping, dude:

I was looking at bbreff at 2009 scores and I've got some good news.

We lost twice to Orlando that year and still won the title (against THEM, no less). That means WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS! this year, yayaaaaaaay! We're gonna play the Magic in the Finals in June. S'gonna be good.

Mark those words, peeps. It's a sign.
