    If this was a throwaway game, then Ime needed to treat it like one. Rest your usual starters and play a bunch of bench guys. Hell, those players may have hustled more and actually pulled this one out.

    Cam’s defense was not good. Dillon was ok. He was aggressive and attacked the rim. Made some good shots and was fouled on some missed ones. Yes he missed some, but there was nobody else when they were doubling Fred.

    Exactly, but Ime was too concerned with punishing Jalen and Jabari instead of winning the game.....

    Tuning in to see Dillon and Fred chuck the entire fourth quarter was definitely an experience I won’t easily forget.

    All I’m going to say is…if you give Cam Whitmore 30 shots, he might not score 40, but it sure would be more entertaining than this crap

    I think this was the straw that broke the camel's back. Ime wants Jalen off the team.

    Ime got some explaining to do when it comes to Jabari…

    He wasn’t having the greatest game, but to be placed in Witness Protection the whole 2nd half? What did he do?

    I understand Jalen getting locked in the closet, but why Bari?

    Can't believe my 42 win prediction ends losing to a crappy Jazz team that had lost 13 in a row...

    No cold 40 tonight :(

    He was their only offense and he was hot, so of course he was taking a lot of shots. But nobody else helped him. Cam was ok but his poor defense could not keep him on the floor.

    Jazz had lost 13 in a row? I didn’t even know that…this loss just gets even more embarrassing
