    Still a very good player but hopefully we come out strong the next half

    Well, the good news is we couldn’t have played worse and are only down 11. Ime is going to chew some ass and make some adjustments at the half, so let’s see what kind of fire they come out with in the third. Jalen had better stop being a sissy and man up or I say bench him. I bet jeenathan will give more of an effort.

    I think his thoughts are with his mother now, let him take care of her.....I am not sure he is going to play much.

    Sengun has 8 rebounds - I think the problem is everyone else

    The Rockets would have scored more points in the 1st half if they'd give the ball to Sengun on the low post in literally every offensive possesions and i'm not even joking.

    Depends on what we want… he would easily be the best player on the team and we would win 40 games. But then Jalen wouldn’t get to grow into the superstar he’s going to be.

    Well I sure hope so!

    I don't mind looking bad what I do mind is not growing. You can tell a lot from a team how they respond. They were gut punched this first half, thankfully its not a 25 point defecit although it really should be.

    FVV, Jalen, Bari all looked like scrubs out there. Like they brought next to nothing.

    Brooks should actually play more, he's been good in his minutes tonight, along with Bullock, I hope we throw Cam in there just to see.

    I do think we should play Amen despite his issues, he has to get used to and experience NBA speed for better or worse.

    Sengun has been amazing. I didn't even know he had a turnaround one legged jumper. Sengun the only one playing fearless tonight along with Brooks.

    Offense looked the same as Silas, possibly worse. Can’t wait to see the adjustments made by Silas.

    Tate actually played well. Jabari, Jalen, and Amen looked like hot garbage most of the time. Brooks played ok. FVV had some moments. Sengun was more good than bad and played well outside a few plays.

    Bari still isn't confident with his own dribbling and it shows

    Hopefully, 2nd half is better with some actual gameplan rather than beating the ball to death with all that aimless dribbling. Sengun seems to be the only player knowing what he is supposed to do and he is not even getting much attention from our guards.

    Anytime Brooks is the Number 1 or 2 is a defeat, he will chuck in other games.

    You sure Jalen is going to be anything more than he already is? I hope you're right....
