Would've been nice to get it under 40 at the break for their mental state.

Mosley isn't getting fired. Team has competed decently in most games and he has so many young guys and vets that don't do much.

Imagine having a team that sees the opponent laugh and have a great time on their home floor and then delivers a 41-point halftime beatdown as revenge. Maybe one day.

If this was League of Legends I would be in all chat asking the Magic to uninstall.

Howard Mass wrote:The Magic keep taking the first shot they see.

They are not moving around the ball much to try and get a better shot.

The Magic seem ready to go home tonight.


Frustrating because if we're not going to win, we should be slowing the pace and keeping the margin as respectable as possible.

High pace + being a lot worse = huge loss.

Then there's the benefit of actually running an offence. smh.

I get that people want Suggs to get as many point guard reps as possible, but he's such a limited ball handler that it feels like there's virtually no way he can have sustained success in that role right now.

Hope that changes over time.

Did Franz forget how to play basketball? He has been plain horrid the last couple games.

His handles even limit is playmaking. When he has an opening, he makes great reads/passes but teams are playing him tight because its been an identified weakness already. The only way out of this, IMO, is to become a great shooter. Put in the work that RJ did with Mike Miller.

These kinds of games were expected. If you didn't expect these kinds of games from time to time this season, then you are an extremely optimistic person.

It's hard to look good when you don't have a competent ball handler that could get you the ball and you don't have good quality players surrounding you.

God... I hope Markelle's shoulder is fully healed. We need Washington Fultz badly

We really didn't need that injury as impetus. We have no facilitation. We don't have anyone to run our offense. You need someone that can get you into sets expeditiously and someone that can get the ball movement started. We don't have that on our roster at all. Ball-handling is fine, but you need someone that can give structure to your offense. You can't develop this overnight. You draft years out for what you need.

The defense has been awful tonight, but it's difficult to fairly judge anyone's defensive performance tonight given that Milwaukee hasn't really had to face a set defense very often due to all of the turnovers and bad shots we are taking. There is absolutely no structure at the offensive end right now.

Would love to see us throw the ball to Wendell in the post. I might be wrong but they're going small against us at times. We can at least try and punish them for that. Wendell should be able to get a double team against Connaughton and kick it to a shooter.

To put this in perspective, we were down by 41 at halftime and Milwaukee scored 41 in the 2nd quarter....
