Lol has anyone missed with Layman guarding them?

I even saw someone blaming Ryan for letting RHJ go.

Come on!
you are probably right.

Horrific shooting night from Ant but to be expected he’s a rookie.

It would be awesome if Layman or Juancho could get going in this game and gain some confidence.

Add Justin Patton, someone, or forfeit the season. Going to tank any game Towns misses now.

Be careful, Jedzz...if you question our scheme or 1-3-1 around here, they run you out of Dodge.

Ryan has his work cut out for him this year if he’s going to be our coach next season.

Would be nice. But it doesn't appear that either of them touched a basketball during their 10 months off.

Layman can't seem to defend anyone. His guy is able to go to the rim anytime they want.

Well yeah. I know how stubborn they have been with it. But they lost their best player for the game who happens to be the only big they have who can also shoot. Kind of breaks the entire system. They could try to not totally allow an imploding and making all their players lose confidence in the team for once.

Terrible night for everyone. Would like to see more fight, hustle, and hard fouls even tho it’s a back to back and no KAT.

Jmac on the court, Culver is running point. Can't make this team up. Not sure why MN has to do the dumbest possible things in their male pro sports teams. Maybe they need to hire a coach from the WNBA.

The youngest team in the league playing against the reigning champs on a back to back without their star player was always going to be a recipe for disaster.

Yes, it shouldn't be THIS bad and we've been let down by a number of guys you expect better from *cough* DLo and Beasley *cough* but it was always a likely outcome once KAT went down.

I am however always surprised to see how many people are waiting to jam the knife into everyone involved with the team after a bad result though, Ryan's coaching was pretty good the first two games. I think we'd all ticked these two LA games as losses, as a result it was super important to win our first two and we managed to do that.

Outside of KAT the team is relying heavily on a number of guys to produce regularly who are still a little too inconsistent to carry that weight, in particular Edwards, Culver and perhaps Beas. No excuses for D'Lo though, he needs to be better than this. He's the 1b on this team and when KATs out he needs to lead by example. Piss poor showing from him

The coach is allowing the snowball. There is no way around it. Total collapses like this hurt all the players values and everyone's respect for the team, players included.

Stop running two point guards for 5 minutes. Remove the couple players destroying you today. How hard is it? Just stop the unraveling, run some tried and true sets, get your best defenders on the hips of their best and settle in for a fight. Go ahead and lose, but stop the unraveling.

But they won't. They have to make sure to remind us two wins means nothing. Same old wolves.

You don't bring in JMac and add him to a rotation with Rubio and Culver and let Culver or Vando walk the ball up to make a decision with it. This is on the coaches.

The Juancho contract and play is really hurting us right now. What we could have done without signing him could have really helped.

Should have let McDaniels in the game before they were down 30 pts. Free minutes. Could have got a good half in for some of these guys.

True all of that. But the lack of effort is unacceptable. And we got exposed on how bad our bigs really are. This is a D-League rotation. Nothing we didn't know already.

Let's also not forget the Lakers played without AD.

We should't fall in love with our guard / wings rotation in a small sample example.

The team is unbalanced and trades are needed with urgency. I hope Rosas is aware of that instead of being in "love" with his assets.
