And you know Dame will be salivating to finally have a breakout game from his shooting slump.

The (bleep) was that lineup in the 4th quarter? What was Frank thinking? That prayer would make the ball go in the hoop for the Lakers?

They say wait for chemistry to develop, but they are losing to these really bad teams. These are teams without the star power but have young players running circles around this team.

Lakers are the number 1 remedy for shooting slumps

The Oklahoma Thunder is now officially known as the Charlotte Bobcats 2.0.

Like Charles Barkley said,"that's about sucky as it can get."

Why everyone blaming Westbrook?


WB ain't the only one to blame HOWEVER.

Crunch time stats dude had like 2 crucial TO's and a bricked 3. This is your (bleep) PG playing out of control. He played out of control first half as well contributing to the dwindling lead.

WB takes a huge chunk of the blame. So does Vogel.



And dude doesn't play defense but like others on the team overloads AD on that end expecting him to bail them out. Plus he counts 44 million on the cap not the less than 7 the above four guys do. With great money should come great responsibility and results.

Because +/- is often a pretty meaningless stat. Malik Monk was +6 too. Did he impact the game at all?


There's a reason I only posted Westbrook and AD, both those guys played heavy minutes so +/- is more telling about them.

Also I watched that last second 3 by Russ. Melo was on the other side of the court and Reaves man was right on Melo when he starting to curl. Not sure what Reaves was doing there instead of clearing out.

It’s remarkable that someone with Westbrook’s athleticism and speed is so mediocre on D. He loses his man way too much. Why is Reaves out there D-ing up everyone? He’s closing down players all over the floor, coaches, trainers, equipment managers, no one is safe from the omni-present D of HBK. I love watching that kid. He provides such a brutal contrast of effort compared to the “stars” we have on this team. It makes their absolute lack of effort on D so much more obvious.

This lose hopefully wakes the team up, I don’t want us to be in a position were we are making trade scenarios or asking Vogel to be fired, I want this team to win the championship really bad we just gotta hope it gets figured out.

Why is Westbrook taking the last shot, people!!!!

I hate this coach….

It should have been Carmelo.


Why would you conclude that was a coaching choice? Russ walked away from the inbounds so someone else would have to pass him the ball, dribbled to the frontcourt and took the shot.


Truth
Yup he wanted to be the playmaker and definitely wasn't willing to inbound that. Disappointing and frustrating. Hope he gets called out in the locker room. Maybe some fire will wake this team up.


If a coach cannot decide what happens on the court in the final play when it matter, he is of no use and should be let go. Period.


We all know coach will be blamed and if they lose enough he'll be canned but let's be real Russ was going to take that shot no matter the coach.


Ok, so it’s not on Vogel or Westbrook, that poss poor last shot then.
I am just angry and wanted to vent on someone…

Nothing will wake the team up unfortunately.

They are a vet team with championship aspirations, so if the previous OKC loss didn't wake them up, no way this one does.

Well that was another F’n fiasco!

They just folded again. Westbrook was horrible down the stretch. Already tired of this crap.

Why would this loss wake them up? We lost a lead of 26 against the same team did that wake them up?

Team is not winning anything with this roster. If we somehow win a chip this year it'll be because Lebron replaced every part of his body with some new wakandan technology. And gave AD titanium legs.

Dude this team might not make it out of the first round.

Who is going to guard the Lillards or the Bookers?

Don’t be so sure, and it’s not a coincidence that our leader was out in both games were we lost to the OKC Thunder, I said it before and I will say it again leaders find a way to help there team propel to a win even though the Rockets games were tough LeBron being there made things more relaxing because you know we will find a way at the end.

Just be prepared that it may get worse IG. With lbj the team squeaks by the rockets. This game minus lbj blow a 19 point lead vs just a bunch of guys. This team has issues that a tht or a nunn are unlikely to solve.

With that said just gonna have to grin and bare this. I will say this:
this teams identity was reshaped to fit russ; gone is the gritty physical d from start to finish (with occasional lapses) replaced with mainly soft listless d (with occasional good d). This team runs up and down the court, often chaotically now, and these are the results.
