    Maybe Jalen doesn't Trust Ime Udoka. Fred VanVleet and Dillon Brooks Main Option Offense. The Young Guys be the Last Option on Offense.

    Jalen Green and Alperen Sengun should be the Main Play that should be Run Repeatedly. This Duo is Unstoppable if Ime Udoka stops himself from Fred VanVleet and Dillon Brooks Chuck Up Shots.

    Guys why are you so negative?!! You cant win every game and the game is at some Points consistent but some Player arent consistent. This Team will arrive the Play Offs. They will not win the championship but they will a lot of games. Yeah JS and JG can do it better but you are doing like that this Team dont won 6 games in row. The Nuggets lost 2 of their last 3 games. So that can happen. Tomorrow is the next game.So win against the Warriors and everything is ok.

    No one beat the Rockets easy! So you see there is a Team! Every Team must work very hard to win against the Rockets! So heads up guys!

    Did we talk a young shooting guard who even can't consistently make freethrows?

    The NBA's portrayal of Brooks is getting sickening, honestly. They paint this guy as just some bumbling idiot that just wants LeDiva to notice him. The dude's a hard-nosed, competitive player that talks a bit of trash and has fun with it. But nah, he's gotta be the evil, big bad "Dillon The Villain" for narrative reasons.

    Could have easily been up 2-0. Barring injuries, this team is going to make the playoffs.

    I don’t know enough about Amen yet. Haven’t seen enough. Not his fault, obviously.

    What they’re missing is he brings this kinda energy every night. He may turn it up against Lebron but that’s a compliment to Lebron. Regardless, this is his energy every night for the most part. I love guys like that.

    Amen Thompson and Jalen Green will be a Better Duo than Fred VanVleet Selfish Offense.

    Amen Thompson and Jalen Green will run Smoother because Amen looks for Jalen Green. Both can Run Fast Breaks and Amen Thompson Passes are so advanced than Fred VanVleet.

    Fred VanVleet and Dillon Brooks are Future Trade Bait. Could become Clippers.

    He brought it upon himself, also the reason Memphis sort of fired him......

    If he just stuck to basketball like a Shane Battier, he would not have the worst PR nightmare....

    Draymond is now doing even worse things after winning 4 championships but Dillon is with 0 rings.

    That is for the Legacy Part. The Sad truth is DIllon is actually a better overall player than Draymond.

    Without FVV, we are fighting with Pistons for the worst NBA team now.

    That is True, but Jalen Green must be included and have more responsibilities in the 4th Quarter.

    We took 84 shots tonight....Jalen was 3 for 10 (2 of 5 on 3's), 6 rebounds, 3 assist. Jabari was 5 for 10 (2 of 6 on 3's), FVV was 5 of 14 (3 of 10 on 3)1 rebound but had 16 ASSISTS ! Dillon was 9 of 21 (6 of 11 on 3's), 1 rebound and 4 STEALS. Alpy..was 11 of 16 (1 of 2 from 3) with 10 rebounds. That is 71 of the 84 shots from your starters.

    35 of the 71 shots came from your 2 veterans (good) with Alpy 16's...that would be 51 of the 71 (again good 69%). Jalen and Jabari shot 20 shots....I think both of them are still trying to find their place in the overall picture. He was NBA All Rookie First Team his first year. Averaged 22 ppg last year. He is known for his explosive first step against defenders and his mercurial shooting. The talent is there. He's young and his coaching before this year was not much. Who knows what will happen....he has the tools though, he had no college and this is his 3rd year. I think good things are coming.

    Lakers shot almost THREE times as many free throws! That's the ballgame. I mean, you knew it would happen, but it's getting pretty old. LeBron by himself took almost as many as we did as a team. Come on....

    And, for the record, Houston was also whistled for nearly twice as many fouls. LeBron didnt get called for a single foul all game? There's just no way to realistically overcome that. It's bullshit.

    Losing KMJ mean losing 2 assists from Sengun, Jalen green never cut to have a layout or dunk
