Kyle Anderson has been struggling. Just a little off, the past couple games.

Really bad defensive breakdown by Anthony Edwards to end the half. Minnesota is lucky Brandon Ingram is rusty.

I sound like a broken record… don’t make stupid mistakes, box out rebounding, better guard defense, better 3pt shooting. Most things are fixable but we haven’t been able to fix them. It seems we struggle when KA or Prince doesn’t play well. Hopefully Pelicans keep missing 3s.

Rudy Gobert is feasting, tonight. It sucks that Minnesota has choked away six games to the bottom four teams. If Minnesota took care of business even four out of those six games, they'd be in contention for the third seed.

I love the 3rd qtr 3:43 Timeout call in that we didn't wait until we loss the lead before calling a timeout

Was thinking the same thing. Might be a bit of fatigue since he's been playing a lot more minutes as a starter. He's been great this 3rd quarter though.

Ha! I forget, sometimes I watch live but it’s on my DVR too, so I go back to watch certain plays!

Forget to catch up to LIVE during the commercials!

I really don't like riding Anthony Edwards the whole twelve minutes in the third-quarter. He clearly gets gassed around eight-to-nine minutes in and starts to unravel.

I just don't understand how this team performs how it did on the road vs the Rockets and then shows up like this tonight. They are so unpredictable.

It's rare. Maybe Finch it a flame under their asses. They can't seem do it by themselves.

Yep. The guy has tons of heart though.

How about Rudy tonight? Long overdue.

Only up by 6 now.

All of a sudden, we're letting the crowd get to us. Ant needs to take over and drive to the basket.
