I'm at a loss for this game. Because I obviously hate the Lakers and want to beat them. But I also want to lose and secure a top pick in the draft.

12 games left. If we lose them all I think we're guaranteed a tie for 2nd worst, since we play Detroit and Minnesota still.

Summed it up perfectly, my most hated team, but picture time, best odds for the lotto and build for next year
I still believe in Magic!
Okeke / Isaac / WCJ front court for the future.

If that isn't a 3, Mo should not shoot it. Awful shot selection.

It's hard to watch this product. I just have to be honest. Isaac coming back plus two lotto picks (hopefully) should make it a much better one, but right now there are just too many chucking vets and low ceiling young guys eating up minutes for me to force my way through these games.

These turnovers are pretty ridiculous but not surprised since we have no reliable point guard out there.

Bamba was undercut on that lob, no call. NBA refs being trash per usual.

Wendell and Chuma are keepers. Maybe Cole as a spark off the bench. The rest of the team is hard to watch. Even a vet like Harris. Maybe he’ll be better when he doesn’t have to do as much

Best post entry pass Cole has made and Bamba with one of the best seals I've seen from him. And on AD nonetheless.
