Whatever. Hoping we get KD/Harden back tomorrow.

This game means nothing.

Exactly. Could care less. If this happened with our full squad I would be upset but today? Meh. It didn't help that Kyrie had an off day from the field.

I give the Bulls credit. They played hard and you can't allow a team with 2 all stars to get scores inside like we did all afternoon.

Kyrie had 15 assists with just 1 turnover, that's extremely impressive despite the crap shooting night.

Claxton with only 8 minutes, while Griffin and LMA get 22 and 26 respectively.

Kind of mind-boggling to me, honestly. Yes, our offense struggled, and Griffin and LMA bring more to the table offensively, but we also struggled on defense, and were getting killed inside all game.

Don't think this game was as close as the final score indicates either. We played desperate basketball in the 4th quarter, and the closest we ever got was 7. We were down by as much as 18, and the Bulls honestly looked a little lackadaisical to even let us go on mini-runs, and then they would promptly answer back.

In my mind, this was a convincing win for the Bulls. Shut us down on offense and got whatever they wanted against our defense.

Very impressive and exactly what you want/need from him.

The 1 TO is impressive given how much he had the ball in his hands, but the 15 assists to me is because he dominated the basketball. I actually think he was still a bit of a ball hog and was taking a lot of contested shots when there were open shooters around him.

C game from him, at best, imo.

Joe didn’t shoot well we needed him to step up today and he didn’t. Doesn’t help that Kyrie shot poorly and Blake and Aldridge gave us nothing.

I'm more worried about the injuries to our backcourt than I am about a single loss.

Chiozza could be in for some seriously increased minutes.

I'd much rather be healthy, but IMO Chiozza can ball. It's insurance policy that might be about to payoff.

Very soon the back court will feature Kyrie, Harden, Brown and Shamet. Possibly even Dinwiddie.

I don't see any need to play Chiozza.

I don't think lack of Claxton playing time is why we lost this game. We got off to a slow start in 1st quarter initially, but we were rolling after that, getting a 9 pt lead early. Then the bench unit came in, and the offense stagnated to a halt, while the Bulls kept chipping away (including getting into the foul bonus situation early). The hope was that the starting lineup would come back in and pick up where they left off, but they sucked and the game completely shifted. Once the momentum slipped away with the extended bench time at end of 1st/2nd quarter, Nets never recovered after that.

Then there's the massive FT disparity today. The Nets shot just 7 FTs, and the Bulls shot 30 FTs. That's too big of a disparity to overcome unless you're shooting significantly better than the other team, which we did not. I'm not saying that Bulls didn't deserve most of those FTs, they did as we foul way too much. However, there were a number of occasions where it felt like the refs swallowed their whistles on the other end.

Well I guess this was bit of an experimentation game for Nash.

I just don't think putting in Claxton more when we desperately needed offense really moves the needle.

We lost because our offense was putrid. Neither Harris or Shamet could hit 3s. Kyrie was off. Everyone else sucked.

The Bulls were also hitting a ton of tough shots.

Sometimes losses are just nobodys fault. It was a bad game.
