Without Towns, Dlo needed to settle down the team and he did the opposite. I’m sure he doesn’t have a lot of found memories of his time in LA.


Naz was a good Gleague shooter and started shooting well here. But the team tried to change his shot early in 2020 new year and broke his shot. It was perfectly timed with KAT getting injured last year and Reid getting starts. Completely lost all arc on his ball. No one seems to be helping him with that yet. Probably because the coach that should is the one that broke it. My guess anyway. He's avoiding shots now this game.

I agree on Dlo. I kind of think Ryan/Rosas have hurt Dlo/Rubio running any kind of offense here as a team as they've been pushing Culver/Edwards on ball too much in preseason and first two games. I don't know if that's why Dlo just is doing his own thing or what exactly right now. But these coaches better figure this out.

Beasley isn't the point guard. This is on Dlo wrecking the first quarter and never running an offense, just lame jumpers. Edwards taking how many early contested threes?

With Towns out I fear DLo's version of putting the team on his back is gonna be to fire up a **** of contested long 2s.

My two takeaways from the first half. One, a lot of guys are trying to do way too much to make up for Towns absence. Second, the team has no legs on the second night of a back-to-back.

Could be. I think they should sit him given how cold and unimaginative he looks today. Let Rubio carry it. I think they need the DNP guys up off the cold bench early in second half.

This is something JMac could have dealt with.

Often times those wind up being the worse injuries.

This is putrid but we got to be realistic here. We are playing the world champs, they are a much better team, and we are shooting horribly. Lets hope to see some improved play this second half and a better effort next game. Time to see who can bounce back.

If we have the worst record in the league we'll still lose our pick 60% of the time.

I was guessing two weeks before calls for tanks. Can this be considered two weeks yet?

Same idea at the start of second half. I do not understand why rubio is here, seeing team mates throwing thees one on one while he is sat down in the bench corner.

About 3 times a game, I see DLo do something odd and say to myself: "wtf was that?"

So is this the Lakers announcers or the Wolves crew, because they continue rambling about LeBron nonstop for five minutes now

You mean like a hesi pull-up while being smothered with 18 seconds left on the clock? Lol

The crazy thing is, he makes a lot of those. When he's having an off night though, it just exposes how bad of a strategy that is.
