    I feel bad for him. I think JB ****ed the Lawson effect in two ways: did not let Lawson get integrated and destroying his confidence with playing only like 5min a game which is baffling

    Get I was smith I wouldn't give a **** about this team either. JB had like a 10ge run of giving Brewer more minutes at PF than Josh&harrel combined. Like wtf, and we lost almost all those games

    JB has ruined this season

    Josh Smith is either out of shape, injured or just old, or all of the above. I hope he is running 5 miles a day with all this time off. GET IN SHAPE...

    We struggled with the 76ers and were down after the 1st quarter, shocking...not very optimistic about the rest of the road trip. Already counted the Celtics as a loss, but the Hornets are in great shape. With regards to Josh, he just isn't the same player and got plenty of opportunities. I never liked him much and didn't bother me he was gone this season, but had hoped for much better than this. Glad to see KJ & Beasley contributing.

    Just wait until our team realizes that winning the first quarter improves your chances of actually winning the game. Then this team will go places....

    At a certain point if you are an NBA player then you need to make some ****ing shots. Josh Smith can't make a shot to save his life anymore. Thus he is no longer an NBA player, regardless of the athleticism or court vision.

    Some players need wake up calls. Josh smith DEFINATELY needed this one. The days of josh jacking up 3s and getting away with it is OVER. This isn't Atlanta.

    Is J Smoove done as a NBA player? Nope but Getting cut by Detroit, traded by Clippers and and now benched by an interim coach within 14 months is no coincidence. **** is embarrasing..

    This could be a blessing in disguise for Josh Smith for him to realize NO TEAM is willing to deal with his bad jump shooting anymore. This offseason he gonna have to do some soul searching. Something he didnt do in the off season thanks to his 3 point shooting in the playoffs.

    He is not getting ANY important minutes as a Rocket. If he does? He better hustle his ass off

    Great win.

    It was good to see both Beasley and McDaniels balling their butts off. Hopefully we will see more of both of them.

    Blows my mind that people try so hard to blame Lawson's **** play on anyone other than Lawson. If anything, he was given too many chances. He just left his balls in Denver; hopefully he finds them in Indy.

    I wonder why JB finally decided to play those guys. Montrez should be playing too.

    We were playing a terrible Sixers team, JB saw no risk in playing these guys.

    Funny thing for JB is the Sixers started making a run on the guys that are regularly in the rotation. Lol

    Agreed. The guy was given every opportunity. He played with Harden and that didn't work, then came off the bench and ran the second unit and was even worse. It was no one's fault but his own. If you can't hit wide open threes or beat your man off the dribble how are you a PG in this league?

    How did Ish Smith look so bad with us and so good with the 76ers? We are really the worst place for PGs nowadays..

    Sam Hinkie knows the history of the game, and history shows players usually figure it out with their 10th Nba team in 6 years.

    Really glad to see KJ and Beasley get some good minutes and both responded with good performances.
    Really liked the the Root sports commentary during the game talking about how hard KJ has been working on his game and thought KJ spoke really well during the post game interview after being named player of the game.
    Well deserved and hoping he can continue the form he showed and become a real asset for the team.

    Isn't that the truth! I love their hustle on defense! Harden was useless on defense last quarter. When he stands around just waiting to get the ball back in his hands while others are giving it their all I just wish JB would sit his selfish ball hogging 3 point chucking self on the bench! If Ariza and Beverly took the majority of the shots outside the arc instead of Harden we probably wouldn't have lost so many close games. Also, when James gets tired or in foul trouble I would much rather see someone like KJ in their hustling on defense!!
