    Jabari needs to smoke weed and get out his head

    i hope ime immediately takes jabari out of any close game with under 1 min to go. regardless of how hot he is. he doesn't deserve to be on the floor in crunch time. hes proven hes a complete liability in crunch time.

    I'm more mad at myself for turning this b.s. on. I should've just left the house after the women's college basketball championship game was over.

    This is like the 27 missed threes game
    We did our part to lose
    but
    The Refs did more than enough to take it from us

    Jalen is great. He isn't the one who missed the free throws

    Can you imagine the narrative and slander Jabari would get if he was drafted 1st like he was projected to be? He would be considered a big time bust. How was this dude ever in contention to be drafted #1? His skillset is the same as Jeff Green's with a lower vertical and Jeff is like 40.

    Great game, any player giving handshakes after the game, think about trading them.

    What I don’t get about Jabari…

    he seems pretty clutch with his shooting at the end of games over these 2 seasons…

    Yet, he seems to choke at free throws though… odd to have the ability to hit game winning 3s and big jump shots, but be unreliable at the line

    This game came down to Fred the vet missing that free throw, and then later Jabari missing 2 free throws…..choke AF

    Easily the most disappointing and frustrating loss of the season. To just give it away like that, on the road.

    I was just sure they would find a way to choke this game away but I never would have thought it would be by missing 3 out of 4 free throws to close out the game. No foul on the final play of regulation? Trash!!

    What a stupid game. This is an odd team as this trend started in the Silas days last couple years now. I have to think this is psychological. Strange it happens to this team consistently in these situations. FVV should not have missed 2 FT in this game.

    The refs were very friendly towards the Mavs, but the Rockets gave it away.

    He's also been instrumental in winning a few. I lay this at Bari's feet but let's not forget that if FVV hit both shots would have been a win as well.
