We’re missing some easy shots and piling up turnovers. Those issues should diminish as the game goes on.


Anyone listening to the Timberwolves feed? I dig their announcers.

O’Neale looked allergic to the ball on that play.

Watching Gobert play defense is a treat.

We’re getting whistles. Is this how Lakers fans feel?

I spoke too soon and much too rashly.

Sloppy play and some easy misses. Hope it gets cleaned up at the half.

That is a horrible 1st half.

Donovan Mitchell not even pretending to play basketball right now. He does not want to be here. Bogey and Ingles same thing. Might as well forfeit if half your rotation doesn't want to compete.

That trio has definitely looked awful. Nothing is more frustrating to me than when Ingles starts to make his lazy passes.

Favors has guarded KAT very well.

That’s the way to end out a quarter. Hopefully Don stays aggressive.

Don't understand why an ice cold Bojan is in there while a productive Clarkson is warming the bench

This MIN team is legit horrible. And we still lost the game because Mitchell and Bogey were worse and Quin allowed them to be worse. Seriously...how can you justify parking Clarkson on the bench in favor of Bogey? Why even show up to the game when your top two scorers and coach don't care to win.

I used to believe in Quin, but really over the years he's proven to be very average at best.

Snyder sticks to his rotation. I really don’t agree with it in this situation.

I actually came away impressed with this Minny team. Edwards looked great and I really like Culver as well. Kat didn't even play well and they still won.

Absolute trash performance from Mitchell, Bogey, and Quin. If any of these three were anything but awful it would have been a free win against a really bad team.

The fact that they almost lost when Bogey and Donovan were this bad, Gobert in foul trouble, and a red hot shooting night shows it all. They didn't do anything to force those two to have horrid games. Bogey was literally bricking 3 foot shots....not to mention their zero effort on defense.

It's very hard to lose when you have two players actively tanking both ends of the floor like those two tonight. They still almost lost. If Quin wasn't so stubborn, the Jazz probably pull it off by simply playing Clarkson or Ingles instead of Bogey.

These Dec. 26 games are trap games. This has happened before. I'm guessing the Jazz didn't practice yesterday or even do much the day before. They enjoyed their Christmas holiday and had a hungry team waiting to smack them.
