(1)No Blake ,.......(hopefully next playoffs healthy)
(2) they were not hitting 3pt shots from the wings.......(now solved)
(3) Andre Drummond for some reason had problems that spilled onto the floor......(will this ever be solved?)
(4) Needed another scoring PG......(now solved)
(5) The deep bench was Horrible as a group ......(now solved)

#1 - lack of talent. #2 lack of talent #3 lack of talent.....

We lost to a much, much better team. A healthy blake and a lucky shooting night might have let us avoid a sweep, but we were going to get rolled hard no matter what.

We had no real business being there considering how out matched we were. It was a travesty.

That and everyone seemed to have floundered in the playoffs. It's where real good players make their mark, and really nobody on our roster did. Luke shot well and looked composed in some games but meh.

Minus Blake, they were a bad basketball team. That's why they got slaughtered.

Have they upgraded so far? Yes, marginally.

Rose in/Ish out,
Snell in/Ellington out,
Kieff in/Leuer out,
Sekou in,
Hopeful improvements by Kennard, Brown, other young players.

Nothing has been "solved" here. Unless maybe if Sekou breaks out, which is highly unlikely this season.

Yeah. We aren’t good enough. It’s not hard to diagnose. We can’t handle playoff intensity when the good teams ratchet it up a notch.

Blake might have been enough to make our home games close.

I’ll go one step further...minus Blake they were an awful basketball team, not only due to lack of talent but lack of smarts, effort and consistency. The latter being what made them so hard to watch. I can stomach a team getting beat that’s just outmatched even when giving 110%. But watching that combined with dumb, lazy and illogical play was just unbearable for me at points.
