It’s night and day compared to the beginning of the season.

It’s like he learned he can use the backboard on layups.

The cavs came away from the press and the magic scored 3-4 straight possessions at the rim. If they kept that press up they would have won this game.

Losing streak is over ...

The debate on whether that is good or bad is on.

We would need a really silly turnover at this point.

I wonder if we lose this game if Ennis doesn't play. We all know as soon as ross come back this team will won some meaningless games towards the end of the season as teams start resting guys.

Is it really a debate at this point?

Might be able to debate if we should've/could've done more to actively throw this game, however.

Let me be clear...

*Of course* this was not the preferred outcome for tanking purposes. But they were bound to win at least one more game this year.

They'll probably win another one before the year is over if we're being honest with ourselves.

It's just not that big of a deal. Teams rarely lose 15-20 games in a row even if they're actively tanking.

Magic Win! Good to win one every now and then but in reality, The Magic also need to maintain their Lottery position. Flipping channels between game and President Biden's Address.

The Detroit game will be the 4th in 6 nights, so we have a good chance at being a tired team.

I tend to agree. But we will only really be able to say after lottery night if this was a big deal or not.

That's what was said every year we've sucked and we have yet to be in the right draft slot. Excuse me if I'm exhausted after a decade of sucking. We've wasted an 1/8th of a human's life expectancy watching this garbage. The FO should be pulling the plug on a lot of these players.

Like what I saw from Cole, our bigs, Chuma and Harris. That is probably the last time we'll see Chuma this season. If we lose to Detroit and Minnesota, we will set ourselves up to land the 2nd worst record.

Disturbing that we couldn't handle a basic full court press though. Hilarious game to watch tonight. Orlando's big lead in the 3rd quarter buffered it enough for them to get the W.

This season is whatever to me at this point.

Can't imagine Chuma playing anymore this season. Unbelievable they didn't foul or call a timeout sooner to get him out of the game.

This is exactly why I think Cole could be a good player down the line. Fearless and can adjust.
