You can tell how easily our offense breaks down when Snell is dribbling the ball more than 3 seconds looking confused.

Thank God he's shooting it though

Didn't McConnell have like 30/10 against us once?

Pacers looking like they get every transition basket or foul call. They're running us out the gym.

Called the game too tight too. Bad game to watch overall

Doesn't every 7th man on a team go off against us or some rando starter break their slump against us? It's either of those two.

Blaha giving the producer a little guff. "We know the answer, but the producer is asking us to wait for the official announcement." That's as close to a Blaha complaint as you'll get.
At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

One thing that having all these players out has done, is that Kennard has absolutely solidified his role as a starter, and damn near all star player. Not just a shooter, that's for damn sure and he's only going to get better.

He is a third piece to the puzzle, and the push to get a real PG has to begin now.

Yeah he needs to be the 5th guy offensively with blake, Dee. Luke and Reggie or rose .... asking him to create offense isn't going to be good for us.

There have been a number of positives from this 4-6 start without Blake, really. But it also shows that, even with Kennard and Drummond stepping up, there isn't enough talent on this roster with Blake and Rose hurt. Not enough to contend with them healthy, either, but it'd be a decent team with them around.

Honestly I'm surprised we've done so well considering Blake, Reggie and Rose have been out.

Brown & Luke stepping up, Snell & Galloway have been better than I thought & obviously Dre has been on that contract year stuff.

What it shows is that this team, full health, is two pieces away from legitimate contention and I dont think it's possible to add two more pieces when looking at assets, and money available.

Need a legit starting PG, and SF. Add those two, and you've really got something.

Reality? Unless you can work some kind of miracle deal for a legit all-star PG, Blow this bastard up.

I think that once we get rose back, we can legit start brown at pg and just go forward with that. The hole is our sf and backup center position. If we somehow could add Baynes and Morris (I know its not really possible right now) for instance we would be going to at least the 2nd round with this team.

Yeah, this Sekou complete miss (at least so far) really hurts. Nice to see the Kennard pick paying dividends, but we've in general drafted so poorly since Drummond that we have no expendable, tradable assets.

I get it, but there absolutely has to be a game changer available at one of the two positions of need, PG, and SF. Backup center is fine, as we have Blake who can play some, and Wood(s).

I still day Russell can be gotten out of Golden State with the right mix of picks, and expirings. You land him, and then add even a marginal starting SF you can do some real damage in the playoffs.(Morris perhaps)

I'm not sure what players would fit perfectly with this current core(Andre, Blake, Kennard)but I sure would appreciate a try, and after the December deadline, I expect something to get done.

It's frustrating knowing how good the team could be but be saddled with a poor front office, and coked out owner.
