Happy to see Kostas, Cacock, and McKinnie, at least.

And, it could be worse. At least we won't lose by 50...I hope.

Geez this team can’t create or score without Lebron. Specially for a team who is suppose to be over loaded at the guard position...

Might be too late from what we’re seeing tonight.


Vogel benching Harrell in the Wizards game because of defensive purposes also can take a toll on the teams chemistry and trust among the players and coaches.


I think Vogel has lost the team.


Nope, he hasn’t lost them. We just dont have the talent


I see lazy players quitting and yelling at each other and a coach that has no answers.

The NBA is pretty predictable. This is no shock.

It's also rare for a the champion to not be Top 4 regular season record team, esp. w/o a big mid-season trade/signing like Sheed.

I said that several games ago

Let’s face it, anyone who expected a win today is probably on some crack, so a loss today doesn’t matter. They just can’t lose the Miami Washington games
. But yet some here think that once we get to full strength we will beat them in a series. Just as illlogical.

Playoff doesn’t start today, and today was no measuring stick, I am fairly confident we can beat them in the playoffs at full strength.

Maybe we can do what the Bucaneers did. It keeps me optimistic.

Something about Harrell; he doesn't seem to be a "locker room" kinda guy. Not sure if he gets along with the team at all. He seems sort of detached.

I actually forgot we had a game today...Probably a good thing that I did. I know its the broken record thing to say...but we need to sit Lebron a few games. I'd rather throw a few games, than continue to wear him down.

The problem with this group starts with outside shooting even before the lay up line issues.

A few of the things he said in his post game pressers have given me that impression. Not specifically that there’s any problem with the team or his teammates but that he’s just kind of a loner/individualist kind of guy.

That said he got along quite well with Cookie. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hey! what channel is showing the Jazz getting the Championship trophy tonight? Sure was an impressive win...at home...with fans...at full strength.

Ok...
So emotions aside...
And no “trade the whole team” talk...

What should Rob “try” and do to fix things?
Please, no pipe dreams

We need some real bonafide shooters and a rim protector....

Trez and AD are buddies. I never see Trez and LBJ talk to each other. I also see AD drifting away from LBJ and start hanging out with people his own age on the team.

There is no issues with Harrell and the Laker players but Vogel and Trezz? That’s a different story, sucks that we might have to cut loose with Harrell cause of how much Vogel doesn’t trust him at certain points.

I don’t blame him. We been needing his scoring, specially the last 3-4 games. Vogel continues to play him the same way and under use him even while short handed. I think we win both Wizards and Heat game if Vogel stuck with him longer. But Vogel been doing it to Harrell all season long.

Good thing we have a large cushion of games to play with but it's shrinking rapidly. Portland is gonna be another tough game. The 4th or 5th seed is worst case scenario since we would have a tough first round opponent. Last year, 4th/5th seed got Utah/Denver in first round.

I'm starting to wonder if there was no bubble, or if it was any other team but the Heat in the finals- we don't win the title.
Call it dumb luck, but maybe our guys bonded closer than any other team in the bubble so Chemistry is what won it for us.

I don’t trust AD to stay healthy. If he were to come back and reinjure himself we would likely miss the playoffs. We definitely need a third star. Lavine is young and has developed a nice jumper. He’s become a dangerous scorer. I’d give them anything but Bron and AD
