    You can have 5 players like that can keep healthy. Woods, Cousins, John, Gordon and Dipo Contributing with young players making big strides. Get at least 1 of those guys stepping up on any given night, you might have yourself a playoff team no doubt. Hope for the best thou.

    Truth of the matter is, there aren't too many teams playing good basketball right now. We are 2.5 games out of fourth in the conference. I blame COVID. All this bs wears on everyone, even pro athletes.

    Coach needs to reduce PJs and Oladipos minutes. No reason those two guys should be playing more than 32 minutes with the depth we have. No more House. More Mason Jones. More Tate.

    Kristaps injured early and Covid protocols have a lot to do with it. They lost a lot of their regulars due to covid.

    We have to keep in mind that we went from being a team that had a legitimate chance at an NBA title for the last 4 years, including the 2017-2018 season where we were the #1 seed in the Western Conference and had a 3-2 lead in the WCF against a full strength Warriors team... (we were really good!) ...to now being a league-average team that is contending for the 8th seed in the playoffs. We are not a horrible team, but by losing our superstars, we have fallen down to the middle of the pack. Not the bottom, but the middle.

    Speaking of divisions, ours is the weakest besides the Southeast.

    Don't talk to me about the "weakness" of our division. Dammit Jim, we're in the West, not the East!

    I have no idea what to make of this team. Gordon and Wood seem to be the only consistent guys. Tucker looks done. Wall, Dipo and Cousins are up and down. Young guys show promise.

    I’d like about 10 games of everyone healthy to see if Wall can get his timing with Dipo and Wood. Trade deadline will be fascinating.
