Clear the bench and see if some of the rookies might play with some heart.

Borrego is **** clueless as a defensive coach. We are playing aldridge like he’s **** lebron and leaving their shooters wide open

Our defense is struggling because we are missing EVERY shot and they are starting every possession in transition. Get the offense going and don't worry about defense for 10 minutes.

Get the offensive black holes out of the game. Coaching 101

Brooklyn is old and its the 2nd night of a b2b for them. They could easily get tired or flat as the game goes on. If the Hornets keep fighting and get their priorities straight its not necessarily over.

I wanted to believe, but in my heart I knew we'd pull a Panthers and embarrass ourselves on national TV.

That first quarter man, there's just no excuse.

meh both are terrible tonight but there's only so much i can say about how dumb it is to think teams will consistently take the martins or biz seriously

just sit down on the 3 people that might be able to score, wait and see if they're on a cold streak, then blow the doors open on the other end

29 point deficit early is going to be tough to dig out of even against a no Durant no Harden Nets team.

Surprise, surprise Monk getting the ball and Cody Martin out of the game and we start hitting shots.

The commentators ironically praising JB as all this is happening :lol:

This has been an issue all season. When Borrego plays his defensive lineups the offense completely collapses because Biz and the Martins are such non threats and they still cant get stops because they are in constant transition D. It compounds on offense again because we cant get in transition without getting stops.

The defense/junk strategy can work with this roster against crappy teams, but its suicide against good teams, especially truly elite ones.
