Still early but this will be tough to bounce back if it’s all on Kawhi. This won’t be the team we finish with past the deadline

Everyone has been trash other than Leonard and Batum.

What an opportunity for one or two guys to step up with George out and no one is capable of it.

That's what happens when you don't have an actual coach and when you fill out your roster with scrubs like Reggie and Patterson just because they're PG's friends instead of signing NBA-caliber players.

Leonard on one tonight. Whew.

I held my breath when he took that charge on DeRozan. He usually doesn’t do that. Couple that with the fall on that drive attempt and I’m a nervous wreck.

This feels like the Utah game. Down big early. Climb back. Fall down again. Fight back only to fall short.

I cannot say enough good things about Batum. I was hoping for a Diaw like role but he’s surpassed that IMO.

I feel like you have this line on constant copy and paste :lol:

When anything happens, it's like automatic, "don't have an actual coach, etc, etc", hahaha

And just like that, Lue probably costs us the game by playing a horrible no-defense lineup and by watching the game instead of calling timeout. And people still pretend he isn't Doc all over again.

This team would benefit enormously from getting Morris back and trading Lou. Reggie/Lou/Kennard is way too bad defensively.

Both Lou and Reggie need to go. You can't have three of the worst defenders in the league all playing together on a regular basis. It's just baffling how little this front office cares about defense even though it's a big reason why our ceiling is the second round.

Bill Russell isn’t helping stop this many bad defenders

GM has to take some blame with the front office this never made sense

Mills is just on fire tonight. It was Mike Conley a couple nights ago, now Patty
