juanc, please don't tell anyone, but this is happening more and more often...

Sloppy passes, horrible defense,... And that is not the teammates fault, it's on Luka. I hated how he forces a slow tempo(this game, and the 2nd half vs Boston). The team just somehow colapses when that's happening.
Brunson was phenomenal, JRich was also solid, Maxi and his defense on Randle was great.
Also Quickley was artrocious. Just shooting without any rhytm... Is he realy better than Green?
The simplest explanation is that it's about that stage of the season where he shows signs of fatigue. His biggest weakness is that his effort/focus/energy level isn't always "at the top"... in some games he goes through passages where he looks like he is 60 years old.
He is in a tough spot because he is relied upon to do so much, but he there is definitely still a lot of room improve as he manages emotions better and gets better physically.
With all that said, while at times it feels like his level may have dropped, the numbers are very good over the last 10-15 games. With the exception of the free throw shooting of course and maybe tos.

And just like that... Kings get destroyed. Can't ever rely on those cats to do anything useful.
