Celebrating because getting beat by a gassed team of 8 players even after help from the officials would’ve meant meant an inconsolable Jokic sobbing in the locker room.

MPJ is still pretty unplayable in meaningful minutes come playoff time. He is a flat-out awful defender still. There is really no denying it.

Holy crap the refs took a beating from poppa jokic. He almost grounded his children referees by not playing by the rules.

Hopefully next time these refs learn their lesson when poppa jokic comes around. Gonna spank that ass and take tons of verbal abuse. All in love of course. All in love.
Yet even amid the suffering that results from sin...god's love is revealed.

That’s how you properly tank. WCJ since starting for us has been averaging 19/11/2/1/1 on 55% fg, 86% ft.

Guys, the next game, we see Cole and Gary Harris!!! No more Randle, and hopefully Bacon. I think MCW should be healthy by then too.

Ennis/Ross

I had a good time watching this game tonight. I got some feel good moments from Okeke, Carter, and Hampton. And we got the L. Sole position of 4th best lottery odds. Great night.

Great effort tonight by the very short handed Magic. In the end, they ran out of gas to a very good team who will contend for the Western Conference Title. It was an exciting game most of the way and really about as much as you could have hoped for under the circumstances.

Now, The Magic get a few days off to get healthy and beat this damn flu bug. Cole Anthony will be back soon and hopefully Gary Harris too.

I'll take a star player of that caliber on my team that cares that much about winning.

They have a somewhat interesting decision to make with him. He only has one more cost controlled year left after this one.

He's a good enough scorer where they almost certainly are going to have max him (or come damn close) to retain him.

But that would be their third max contract *and* Gordon would be up for a new deal the same year.

If they don't win the title this year or next year, how comfortable will they be diving deep into the luxury tax to retain a core that may not be able to win it all?

Plus like you said, MPJ specifically is so poor defensively that the best teams in the league are just going to relentlessly put him in the action and take advantage of him.

This is a better fit for Gordon. He can be spoon fed buckets all day and not be asked to create his own shot which he is incapable of doing. They are definitely going to need AG to play like that every game because the better teams in the West are definitely going to attack Murray and MPJ in that lineup. Both of them are very suspect on the defense end. Also Jokic will need to man the **** up. Dwight was basically bullying him in the series against the Lakers and completely took him out of rhythm.

As for us, I feel confident in saying that I really like the trade we did with Denver. We actually got more for Gordon than I'd imagined. I stopped liking Gordon honestly after our first playoff series against the Raptors.

Almost perfect L....young guys are playing well and gaining experience.....WCJ has been a revelation and Hampton showing flashes of something greater however he still needs control.....what can i say about Chuma? he doesn't play like a young player he's like a Vet however for him he might need to watch some film on Carmelo on how to bait people at the rim as tonight he got stuffed a few times....All i need now is for Ross and the rest of these vets off the team so the youth movement can REALLY begin
