These last two 4th quarters have me angry.
A shameless unwillingness to win, from the coach right through every player that surrendered.

He definitely worked hard on his game this off-season after falling off badly last season.

Herro shined last night. Pistons might have the worst offense in the league, but they're not shabby on the defensive end even with Beef Stew out. I think fans should be upset at blowing the big lead against the Lakers for sure. Losing to Miami? No, not at all. Miami put on a clinic with a team of proven vets and Herro and one of the best coaches in the league.

Miami might not come out of the East because like everyone it will come down to matchups and injuries and all that, but man, they're clearly in the upper echelon of the league.

Lakers? Not at all. When your coach is all like, "Beating one of the worst teams in the league after our best player takes a cheap shot and gets ejected is the kind of thing that can turn a season around," you know you're screwed.

They player a top team even until the end and then got beat by a better team. Can't be too upset with that.

This "offense" is just killing me though. When the ball moves and players move, we look pretty good. When we stand and stare at Grant or Cade and just hope they do something?

I watched the first three quarters on the craptacular Bally Sports app.
I quit while we were ahead.
I win!

Saben Lee seems to be a player that needs enough minutes to get comfortable. He's been very productive when he gets heavier minutes but doesn't play well in spot minutes here and there. His play last night didn't help his cause.

He needs work on his vision and decisions, but it seems worse when he's inserted for just a couple minutes, trying to do too much. I still think he can become a solid backup and a high energy change of pace. It's hard to see him getting enough minutes to settle in as long as Joseph is here. I'm beginning to wonder if he'll eventually move on or be moved before he develops further.
