I have a feeling that Barrett is going to go bonkers.

Who knows? He's wildly inconsistent.

I didn't mind winning some games but we badly need some L. Also a lot of covid cases around the league so we never know if they can shorten the season to 50-60 games or something.

They’ll expand the rosters before they cancel games. They can’t afford to lose money.

Hope Bazley continues his dominance. Tired of Ws though. Gonna get Brooklyn next with no KD and probably no Kyrie

Our offense is effing terrible. Not the execution, the actual offense.
“If you're getting stops and you're making threes and the other team's not scoring, that's when you're going to see a huge point difference there,” coach Billy Donovan said.

At this point I would consider tonight a success if one young guy looks like a competent nba player before the game is over.

It's fine to win when SGA scores 25+ with high efficiency or if Bazley/Dort are showing great improvement but this game... :banghead: :banghead:

I don’t mind if poku struggles but it would be nice if every shot and turnover wasn’t comically bad.

Few ideas for the next 15-20 games :
- Trade Hill
- Rest Horford
- Poku in the starting line up
- Justin Jackson 15-20 MPG

If it doesn't work, panic move and we bring back Billy Donovan

Oh well that's painful. Happy for Diallo thought. Looks like a nice guy. He probably knows he needs a very good season to have a shot to stay in the NBA.

SGA starting to make those 3's.

Gonna start watching the prospects we could pick with a 6th-10th pick ;(

Knicks suck. We didn’t even play well. Poku’s shot was noticeably less flat.

Okay, look, a win here and there is good, but lets not get crazy. I don't want to see a lot of 2 game winning streaks.

That aside, semi-fun game. I wish I could get excited about Diallo's performance but I've pretty much written him off.

And the worst is that we will likely beat Brooklyn on Sunday...

We have a tough schedule for the rest of the month though. Something like 3-8 is realistic.

From what I read going into this game we were dead last in the league in offensive efficiency.
