Game 11: Bulls (4-6) at Clippers (6-4) 1PM PST

Why are they playing a matinee game again when the Lakers are on the road? Should have at least played at 5 pm or later. They will likely be down by at least 20 at the half :nonono:

Early weekend matinee game + losing this game would be a disaster both for the narrative and for the morale of the team. I'll be shocked if we win.

Matinee game plus playing down to the competition = lost for us.

George and Bev trash to start.

Leonard with one shot attempt is unacceptable too.

Starters either come out blazing hot or sluggish. We need to find the in between

Leonard the only one awake. The mask off probably has a lot to do with it.

Kawhi asks for offensive IQ to operate. He's not gonna get it as long as he plays with PG and Bev as his guards.

Clippers need to petition to try and get out of these early afternoon games :lol: , especially when playing an Eastern team whose players bodies don't feel like they are still in the early afternoon. As much as one can try, it is hard to get the body as ready, but gotta push.

He's likely not to be honest, PG is not a point guard, and the 5.0 apg to 4.2 tpg with him being used more as a primary facilitator is showing that reality.

Or they could do their jobs like the highly-paid professionals they are. :dontknow:

It's always been pretty soft to me how we can usually pencil in a loss just because it's the early afternoon on a weekend.

Morris and Zu have been trash too. Wow.

As soon s I say that Zu with a nasty block and dunk. Maybe that gets him going again.

Depends on who you play (if it is someone in the same time zone it is better). These are professional basketball players playing other professional basketball players, simply being a little bit sluggish can be the difference between winning and losing. If you work at 3 pm all week and your schedule is set for that, then you have to work at 9 am one day, your energy level is not going to be the same even if you sleep on time and do everything you can.

For the average worker, they have to show up and finish the day, for a basketball player, work is a physical competition, which means you have to not just show up and get through the day yawning and a step slow, but you have to exert yourself physically and perform. So you have to push as much as you can, but there are some physiological barriers. If you've ever had a workout schedule and then changed it up drastically one day, whether you slept enough or whatever else, matching the same consistent energy level can be hard to do.

Looks like either PG or/and Kawhi have be on the floor for the entire game again. Gonna wear these guys out before all star break even comes. Marcus Morris where are you?
