What do you want him to do? Play Reggie Perry? Not play a backup C at all? The starters have been garbage and the bench have been garbage. Unless a miracle happens, we're on our way to another incredibly disappointing loss.

At this point I would give the rook some minutes. Deandre Jordan is just a negative for us in general. Chris C gets exposed on defense, but he atleast scores.

Except Reggie Perry hasn't even impressed in garbage time to give him that chance.

Shamet was a waste of the number 19 pick we traded for him. He can’t do the thing we brought him in to do, shoot threes, and he can’t do anything else. Not to mention his turnovers and TLC like stupid plays.

This is why everyone isn’t bullish on Nash right now. How are we losing to this team?

The offense looks pathetic and our lineups look particularly poor right now.

What’s frustrating about this team is that we have no consistency. I have no idea which Nets team is going to show up from game to game.

Not really, last game he didn't make a shot. Chiozza isn't a guarantee to generate offense either, and he's a borderline NBA player for a reason.

We shouldn't be this bad with the rotation we have. The players just suck right now, with the exception of Durant.

anything is better than Deandre Jordan right now. He gives you no offense, barely defense, can’t catch the ball, doesn’t close out, lazy in rotating. Get the rook some minutes. This isn’t a situation like Allen, where he gives you quality time, but makes mistakes. There’s no point in playing perry under those circumstances. With Deandre however, it’s best to try. Thunder is not some great team, get the rook some minutes

Blaming Nash is lazy. The players suck, and these are the same lineups that we've won games against good teams with.

Chiozza only played 8 minutes last game. Shamet played 22 minutes and was 3/7......

And the overwhelming majority of our games have been at home so far. This team will either bond and find an identity or crater even harder. This is so uninspiring to watch.

And he was 0-4 and a huge negative in those 8 minutes, and Shamet was actually solid.

Brutal fall by Alexander. Glad he didn't bang his head on the floor.

Either way, this hasn't been a good night for us. I'm waving the white flag and watching football. We need Kyrie back.

Our biggest issue is our defense, obviously. Like, with all of our cold spells, with all of our TOs, with all of our obvious chemistry issues...we put up a ton of points regardless, like right now we have what, 95 points with 7 minutes to go? We can score.

But Memphis and OKC are two weak offensive teams, and we let them light us up.

I feel like levert doesn’t know what his game is when he plays next to Durant and Irving. He’s not as aggressive. He needs to change that.

Yep. It's like night and day from how he looked the last 2 games.

I agree with this, tonight's loss is on the players. We're far more talented than them, even with our players out tonight, there are no excuses. Nash isn't the one making these guys play sloppy af out there or making mental mistakes every possession. KD has put up numbers today, and he hasn't been good, actually watching the game.

And he was 0-4 and a huge negative in those 8 minutes, and Shamet was actually solid.

And he has given it far more in time with the nets than Landry has so far, who’s currently at 0 tonight so what point are you making? This is why we losing now, make adjustments. Just because it wasn’t one guys game previously doesn’t mean you don’t split minutes between guys. Chris actually knows how to run the point, which could have actually been worth while tonight. Not even arguing him being consistently better as it wouldn’t hurt to make adjustments. Like what are you even saying. “But he was 0-4...” yea and shamet hasn’t scored a point tonight.

What line ups are Nash supposed to use? We have no serviceable PG right now with Kyrie gone for God knows what and Johnson is out on Covid leave.

I'm not bullish on Nash because the team should have performed better. They got out hustled and outworked. KD isn't on top of his game. Not much Nash could do, as someone else said these are the same line ups that smacked Philly and Utah. We just stunk.
