They're not trying to win next year IMO.

Hampton is playing way too fast. It’s more like “Once the game slowed down..” scenarios.

Orlando actually won two quarters and tied a third. That Orlando lost by almost lost by 20 points shows how much of a train wreck the 3rd-quarter was.

With Wagner's start over Bacon, it is looking more and more like Bacon will not finish as this season's leading starter for Orlando. Wagner's 0-7 shooting line will make many happy, but it is certainly not good for his audition tape.

I guess the highlights are that Anthony and Bamba both played well. Beyond that, this is a very forgettable game.

As I did not watch this game, I ask, "how was Harris bad?"

Was he pressing it trying to force his game, or was it that Memphis was focused on him?

I dont think he was bad. He got a strong defender and was missing some semidifficult shots. Loot at the score i dont think he even forced it a lot.
Goodbye Vucevic, welcome lotttery picks !!!

Mo had a pretty good April. 19 mpg 52/43/70, and averaged 11.1 pts 6.6 rebs 1.4 blocks.

I hear some complaining about his assist to turnover ratio, but if you look back at Dwight, Mo is twice as good.

Pretty rough game from everyone not named Bamba and Anthony. But it was good to get back on track with the tank. The Grizzlies had me worried with how terrible they were at the start of the game. But at least they picked it up at the end.

Almost there. Need this season to end so I can start cheering for wins again.

It just irks me when officials miss obvious calls. You could hear the smack of the ball and the ball went straight down.

I believe they're tweaking the rule for next season. Get 1 challenge - if successful, you get another.

For me, Bamba's block stat-line makes up for his TO line.

75 ORTG for a whole game is quite rare these days in the NBA, pretty dreadful offensive performance by the team. Randle had 50 ORTG in 19 minutes, LMAO. Bacon with 64.8 in 32 minutes.

But Cole and Bamba looked good and we kept it competitive for a whole half, so a positive game overall. Wagner hustles a lot, but his shot is still not there.

Why did Wendel Carter pushed Cole into Brandon Clarke when he was making a layup, BTW? Such a weird play.

His turnovers are nothing like Dwight when he was here.
