Who was the last sorry scrub that was tasked with guarding LBJ? Joey Graham?

Moral victory tonight. But the fact that Jordan Clarkson is our number scoring option in the last four minutes of tight games is why we're not a good team. If you don't have a true No. 1 scoring option, you can't win tight games in this league.
It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

Also, I really like the attitude and energy TT plays with. He's a good player to have around young guys.

It’s too bad we didn’t have Love this game. We most certainly would have won. I’m still confused why TT didn’t roll to the basket with Sexton during the closing minutes. It looked like the lane was open to me.

I'm ok with Clarkson as the default, go-to scorer during clutch. It showed during the game that he can hold his own, although he still doesn't have the respect of the officials whenever he gets contact. But it'll come.

Wish Larry fielded both TT and Nance down the stretch and have those 2 with Clarkson abuse the PnR, with any combo of Hood, Osman, Sexton waiting for the kick out or drop.

The problem is Clarkson makes zero effort to keep defenses honest. It's practically impossible to play him with Korver because he won't pass it to him.
