    Maybe our Hot and Cold guards will shoot well Sunday - I mean, Porter, Green and Mathews were really poor at shooting 3s.....we really need to hit some 3s.

    Is Armoni ready yet?

    What do you mean!?
    He played like a p*&&^!
    That's as timid as I've seen him play this year in the 2nd half!
    Even on the break he stayed outside and didn't even try to get involved.

    I've felt bad when things weren't going well for him but tonight he was REALLY aggravating me off with the way he was playing!
    Going up weak or not even trying at all!

    Easily one of the worst coached games I have ever seen. I know Wood has 3 fouls but you should not sit him for the whole quarter when he clearly had it going. You trust your player instead of letting the Kings take control of the game.

    Theis sucks. Period. Playing him over and over again expecting different result is absurd.

    Mathews sucks tonight but continued to get tons of minutes. Why not give Armoni some run?

    Why didn’t he call timeout when the team looked so unorganised in the early 4th. He stood there the whole time watching the lead balloon to 19. Why? I seriously don’t understand what he’s doing.

    And EG just hit 2 threes and he subbed him out for no reason. Why????

    Watch Green running everywhere for lob opportunity....Sign.

    When you don’t have a solid PG, you playing off ball is pathetic.

    It’s our money. When NBA teams play in London, you have to pay £1.000 ($ 1.400) for a reasonable seat, even the game happens between two rubbish teams (Knicks vs Pistons for example). If you spare 100 dollars, You can get a ticket for a top level soccer encounter such as Chelsea against Real Madrid. I don't know how much the tickets for conference finals?

    Theis' former teams annual salary pay-roll around 10 M dollars. Theis alone is paid 8M USD. If he plays in Europe he can coup 10 % of his current salary.

    Because of these silly salaries I have to watch lots of US insurance companies ads. The more players earn the more we have to watch insurance and pizza ads.

    KPJ - not a point guard
    Gordon - needs to be traded. Value won’t be higher than this
    Wood - Needs to be traded.
    Matthews - Needs his minutes cut
    Theis - just why Silas

    We need to fire our shooting coach.

    Even our sniffer Brooks can’t make shots now.
    Green also can’t make shots in recent 2 games.
    Same as Gary Birds.

    Who is our shooting coach? Just horrible.

    Wood lost his rhythm. The bottom line is coach is an enabler of bad habits and poor decisions. He is a skills development coach. He just doesn't have a philosophy about winning.

    Agree with all but Matthews. He's in a bit of a slump, but he and Brooks need court time. We need them to have court time actually, as they're two of our only three point shooters (especially after Gordon's traded).

    Did you really just say "Silas needs to trust Christian Wood"?
    When he got his 2nd foul in the 1st quarter you could see him saying "I'm good" to the coach.
    So Silas DID trust him and left him in!
    And just a minute later he picks up his 3rd on a reach in on a guard(or sf)!

    What was idiotic is that right after Wood picked up his 2nd Silas takes out EVERY SINGLE OTHER PLAYER on the floor and left "Captain Trustworthy" in the game. SMH!

    I'm not sure who I trust less, Silas or Wood!

    I don't know how much longer Silas continues with this KPJ at PG experiment. It's clear he's only effective when he's attacking the basket and playing as a scorer. Whenever he dribbles in a possession for more than 7 seconds, the likelihood of a bad miss or turnover is close to 95%.

    To me, I think you shift him to the SF role soon and test out another PG candidate. JC doesn't play like a PG to me, and so I'd go with Nix and give him a spin. This is a development year anyway, isn't it? If not, maybe you bring Wall back. I don't know. But right now it's almost like we're playing without one. Whoever gets the ball, run it down, and if it's KPJ, then either he passes it within the first 3 seconds of him bringing it up to half court or he dribbles it down and it's as good as a turnover. We need to give someone a chance who can setup players around them rather than having all of our players in half court sets be forced to go iso and create their own shot off the dribble or in the post.

    KJ Martin is not a winning player until he can shoot consistently.

    Other than EG & Augustine, no one on this team is a consistent shooter...
