Doesn't even seem like Westbrook has 14 assist.

A Westbrook led offense looks constipated even when he plays well. No rhythm whatsoever.

Another L in the books to drop to .500.

Only highlight of the game was winning that third quarter. Downside is that the 2nd and 4th quarters were garbage.

Only silver lining in this loss is that THT looks amazing. I’m gonna be pissed if we end up trading him.

So... how many shots did Davis get in his last run? 2?

The individual assist is a worthless stat. Proven yet again by Westbrook.

We had an opportunity. We had wide open looks, missed them. And had 2 or 3 absolutely horrific calls go against us.

My ultimate highlight is Nosebleed actually mentioning a highlight :nod:

I really haven't watched much of the NBA over the last couple of years. The Bucks don't look like a contender at all. Is this the same team that won it last year?

Lakers missed their last 16 threes to end the game. Are these guys serious lol :nonono:

Missed five straight to end the third, went 0-11 in the fourth, finished 12-43 for the game. Sick of this **** team and their threes.

Not expecting this type of game from THT every game but I'm just excited that the Lakers finally has a legitimate threat at the wing position.

Pretty much, but Kris Middleton just played his first game of the season, and Brooks Lopez and Ryan Arcidiacono are both injured.

Didn't watch the game was at work ...

But yeh agree with the above with both... I believe Bucks only Won the chip because a lot of teams were injured and I mean a lot of teams were

It's gonna be a long season right...what's up with AD? I feel like I've been asking myself this for a full year now.

Awfully quiet around here when THT plays good. :lol: :lol:

Might have to dig up some summer "takes" when I have some free time.

You seem elated. Congrats on getting this one right. Most predictions/takes, including many of your own are nearly always wrong.

I was a huge THT skeptic. Thought his ball dominant ways and poor shooting didn’t fit with the starting unit. Thus far THT has looked very impressive. He’s looked much improved from last season; both shot and defense looks way better. I’m most impressed with his confidence to let it fly. I’m very happy for the kid!

THT looks like he’ll have a break out year like some predicted. However, the team as a whole is looking very shaky. I no longer look forward to even watching this team play… so many issues.

Even before what appears to be a groin injury, AD does not look healthy. He’s just way too soft on both end of the court. It’s absurd to even think this version of AD can protect the paint. I’d definitely look to trade AD before I trade THT.

I’m still do not like the fit of THT and Russ playing together. Frankly, I doubt any wing on the roster fits well with Russ. Russ needs to come off the bench…doubt the coaching staff has the balls to do it though.
