I dunno, but he's been lazy as hell defensively all night. He's certainly not doing much to prove he deserves a max. He's got some numbers this game, but if he was more self-engaged, they'd be way better numbers.

We’re lucky cause we could easily be trailing this game by 20. We’re in it. Grind it out then go home.

Not that it matters since he hasn't hit squat.

How the hell did Mobley go 0-11? That's weird. Bamba is a little more understandable because he shoots mostly 3s...I saw he went 2-9 the other night just from 3. Then I checked his 3pt% for the year and it was 40%.

I didn't see most of this one, but I remember Towns got a bunch of soft calls going his way in 2 consecutive games last year....Ayton couldn't even touch him so there really wasn't anything he could do unless he wanted to foul out quickly.

Same stuff tonight I guess?

You weren't lying Qwigglez about shooting. Not 1 person other than Ayton even shot 50% in this game other than Frank, who was 1/2.

Does it seem like Bridges has his swoopy hitch in his shot more tonight then he has recently?

What is Monty thinking taking Ayton out of the game on these plays? I don't get it at all.

5 fouls i guess? Same with putting Nader in for Booker. It's the end of the game, keep your best players out there.

I wonder why they didn't have Ayton on that last play....Towns was in there...they end up taking it to the rim. We have Nader in there for some reason. Ayton could have at least guarded the inbounder. Maybe because his lack of conditioning I guess.
