    I don't know how we are this close. MDA needs to go back to Thabo and play DMC. Jeff Green came off the bench to early, and BMac stayed in too long.

    Surely we can't play bad interior defense like that in the 2nd half. If we sort that out 2nd half, we'll win the game comfortably.

    Gotta tighten up the defense. We aren't forcing lots of turnovers like normal. Not getting killed on the glass but too many points in the paint.

    House needs to sit 2nd half.

    Maybe EGo too.

    Literally how I watched every game in the 90s thru the Yao era.

    Refs give the calls in favor of the following:
    1st: Home
    2nd: Away
    3rd: Away
    4th: Home

    our coaching staff is fuking trash. gunning w/ cayleigh just now w/ zero clue about how to answer her questions. we just witnessed the most obscene layup drill by any team in probably the past 4 decades and these lame duck fuks just sat and watched w/ no response

    When Clarkson was rookie he had his best summer league game actually playing against Utah way back when Clarkson was starting on the Lakers!

    Got the game recorded!

    It will all come down to which team can impose its will.

    We haven't played awfully, especially on offense , but we've missed bunnies and on defense we don't have much focus. I saw a few minutes of intensity, but we couldn't keep it up long enough and our rotations were lacking. That Mitchell open 3 at the end was bad lol.

    Some of these west playoff teams don't have the shooting or the scoring. Like Clippers to me have some good shooters but their offense doesn't score enough at times. Denver is deep but they are just inconsistent. Utah has good shooting and scoring now that they've added Conley, Bog and Clarkson. Lakers are good but they can have these weird cold spells too. I guess what I'm getting at is no one is really scary in the west like the Warriors were.

    Gordon was awful in his minutes on both ends.

    Not sure why he's so committed on deep 3's this year.

    They played last night.

    Need to push the ball down their throat in the second half.

    Harden didn't waste his time on bench, got some tips from coaching staff or search out on his own

    Playing here in Utah makes me realize how much I hate their fanbase. In order of fanbases that are insufferable in terms of in-game groaning/grumbling: Jazz, Mavs, LAL, GSW.

    I give him a pass on his last trip to the line. He just got kneed in his junk. At least they called the foul. :-(
