Getting beat by 50 isn't good.

Ya I had a feeling the game would be pretty unwatchable.

One player that's really struggled is Roby. He's a turnover machine. I like him but I'm not as optimistic for him being here long term.

Never been high on Roby. He works hard and I like the kid but I don't see a good NBA player in him.

Glad Bradley got more minutes...he needs to play 20-25 MPG for the rest of the season.

I had thought and hoped he could be a guy like Noah Vonleh was a couple of years ago. Maybe not a guy that wins you many games but he doesn't lose them either. It's still possible but I'm less optimistic.

Assist to TO ratio is even (1.8:1.8), which isn't terrible for a young player (basically a rook). Him and everyone else's TOs are likely to grow as the team tanks. I wouldn't draw any conclusions. 7 TOs in a game where your team is blown out by 50 doesn't really mean anything. He's had 4 games this season with 5 or more TOs, which skewed things.
