    Luka is so tiring with the constant arm flails and headfakes whenever someone is near. As a ref I would get so fatigued of seeing that.

    Also if at midnight tonight I am told that Jabari isn't STILL at the arena shooting freethrows, I am disappoint.

    I still can't believe what just watched.

    What's worse is I expected Rox to lose today. Then they teased, and then they lost in the absolute worst ways possible.

    Maybe we should think about trading him....I think there are about 29 other teams out there that would be interested. And, as much as I love the Rockets, I think he'd be a much better fit somewhere else. If he had gone to the Magic, he'd be a much different player than the way he is utilized here. I go crazy watching him camped on the 3 pt. line. Why ? Ain't nobody kicking the ball out to him. 10-12 shots a game..just like this one (10)...meanwhile we have players jacking up to the tune of 9/21and 2/8...missing layup after layup. Finally, he was projected as a #1 at one time because he was considered by scouts across the league as having one of the highest ceilings among that class.

    Horrible coaching cost this game. Yeah Jabari missed 2 fts...that happens.

    However refusing to double all game long, letting Luka and Kyrie get hot is just bad coaching. And then not fouling at the end? Bruh.

    I credit Ime with the culture shift and emphasis on defense but these tactical coaching decisions always leave me confused.

    Well, one thing for sure, you absolutely don't know him. But, then again, there's a lot you don't know.

    Don’t look now but we are fading into irrelevance.

    Something drastic has to change or we will become the Bulls, holding on to nostalgia.

    Good teams with high basketball IQ players don’t win 11 in a row, then proceed to lose 5 in a row.

    He wasn't considered to have the highest ceiling he was considered to have the highest floor but lowest ceiling in the top 4. People considered either Banchero or Chet to have the highest ceiling because Banchero can handle and pass while Chet can do just about anything on both sides of the ball.

    Again no foul when up by 3? Is this team never going to learn?
