Please, please, please do not let melo go off and win this game- if we keep losing we have a real shot at 4th. If we win we drop to tied for 8th

Which means you already know the rest of the team sucks and have no chance at beating the clips, unless melo goes off.

We are 11-18 when Melo scores 25 or more. I like those odds. Let him go-off, it means less possessions for more efficient shooters touching the ball and lots of clock wasting. All good for the tank.

So they win at a rate of 38% when Melo scores 25 or more. The team is winning at a rate of 33% since the all star game and the emphasis on the triangle. They are winning at 39% for the year. Hopefully the triangle gets it done.
I've seen scant proof that a majestic aura trumps a sound plan, but maybe that's just because I wasn't looking at Phil Jackson... Seth Rosenthal 2014

Yeah let's just co-mingle two completely dissimilar data sets to push your agenda. One has 67 data points and the other has 11 but let's compare them one to one like that's a valid comparison.

Hopefully the triangle get's what done? What exactly did the 38% of games won when the sulking black-hole scores 25 or more DO for us???????

I think they need to keep KP inside the 3 point line. Also he has no chance to guard a strong player like griffin

I have the game on in the background. Zero crowd noise. There's about as much intensity as a family picnic.

I think Willy is a little more athletic than he looked at the start of the year. He used to just barely get off the ground but it looks like he's got just a little more explosion on his moves and dunks.

Baker looks overmatched out there tonight. Would like to see more Randle.

Maybe Phil gave him that instruction to play the kids Horny was waiting for

I disagree about hik being overmatched but if so, it's all the more reason to leave him out there. He needs the experience to figure out how to deal with ball pressure and trapping. It's not like we should be looking to win this game anyway.

KP looks much more fluid with the 2nd unit running Triangle even though it's mostly D leaguers and KP.

Yeah, I'd just rather see Randle out there getting those reps, hoenstly. I think Randle has more potential to stick on the roster in future years.

Kristaps hustling back on defense at 3:02 the way he did is a good sign of character. Shows he still cares about winning even though they are down and the season lost. I've been worried that all this losing, drama and poor culture might effect his mindset but little stuff like that keeps me optimistic that he's unphased by it all.
