    Wow, we are giving up a lot offensive rebounds all game and in the last 4 minutes we play without a power forward, so if the center does not get the rebound we are screwed.

    Morey probably asked Les if he could tank when he got DMO back instead of a first round pick. I guarantee Les was in on it. Morey isn't going anywhere.

    Any team that cared would not have lost a game like this, it's almost impossible to imagine them blowing it if they cared enough to give an effort. The rebounding is the most telling statistics. Rebounding and defense require effort, and they were bad in both areas, at home, against a garbage team, in a must win game for the playoffs. This team simply doesn't care. It's been the same thing all season long. Nobody should be safe going into the off season, none of the players, coaches, or front office staff should feel secure right now because I can only imagine that Les is PISSED right about now.

    Another 14th first round pick for what? Another under sized PF.

    This was a tank job tonight folks. You should be able to tell that by the rotations and rebounding.

    Wow, Dmo with a stellar 12 minutes and a +8 for the team, and can't get back on the court.

    I was watching the recording when a friend texted me asking what happened, made me look up the score, unreal.

    You can't tank the last 4 games of the season they already sucked. BTW they've looked like that all year.

    Two point guard rotations tend to help you accomplish that feat

    Garbage coach playing Terry and Patbev together. Smh

    That is EXACTLY what I said when we fired McHale and replaced him with the guy that was in charge of the defense, that he would have no balls to hold players accountable - he didn't - and would not be able to right the ship, he didn't.

    I HATED McHale but if you are going to fire him you better have a plan - they didn't.
