Wes going to wait down 35 to go to the bench. Just put Isaiah Todd in. Who cares? Throw that kid out of the game.

OMG. This is like middle school basketball. Dinwiddie is like that 13-year old pulling up for 3 and you know he can't make it.

I'm getting quickly sick and tired of Dinwiddie. If he's injured or not 100%, sit him.

To me, a good coach does something. He doesn't just stand there with his arms folded down 23. He doesn't have to yell at them. He can Dean Smith them and pull the entire lineup out. They act like they don't care they are constantly missing and consistently throwing the ball away. Because there's no punishment for their actions.

For whom? Nobody is remotely better behind him. Neto is not even playing like an NBA rotation player and Holiday is a pace guy and not much else. I actually miss Ish Smith and I know he's not the answer.

Good point, I dunno, but how many games in a row does a guy have to play lazy for us to maybe say we have an issue?

I know most coaches do that. It's a mental thing that you hope your guys wake up because you're showing confidence in them. I doubt Pops, with a good team, would consider staying with guys that aren't giving effort on defense.

Unseld's answer is to keep with status quo and insert our knight in shinning armor Neto?

Gafford is not in the game to catch ally oops. He's in there for defense and rebounding. If he's not doing that, then Thomas Bryant will have a chance to play when he comes back.

Please get Neto the f-ck out. Put Kispert in at the 2. Anybody else. Beal tapped that rebound out and he literally stood there instead of going after it.

No idea with playing Deni minimally or Kispert not at all? I just haven't got Wes's game plan tonight.

Deni has played 10 minutes. Bertans has played too much, but you know Kispert was out of the rotation when Bertans came back.

I'll take the glass half-empty by saying this could be a long losing streak if we lose to Ok City. Even if we beat them, but start out slowly, we're going to lose like 15 of 20. This team just doesn't care enough and is too lax. Like they think they'll just show up in the fourth quarter.

Bertans has single-handedly make a mockery of this third quarter. I would bury him on the bench forever. F-ck his salary.
