Deserved to lose that. Really poor. Can't just play when we feel like it guys. Need that urgency for much more significant periods of the game.

Yes he looked great but bad turnovers at critical times

Thanks. That seems to be one of his warts.

Nice play by Horny.....His timeout plays this season has been on point.

Superstars have to make WIDE OPEN game winners period!

Agree - we had the worst team in the league playing a back to back after a travel snafu, this is on us. Horrible first half and not enough in the second.

The only things that trickle down are wages and horse shit

I am surprised that he didn’t make it he squared up to the basket.

Hopefully after this game they realize that they can’t sleepwalk through the first half and expect to win against any team in the league...especially on the road

I really did like the play. KP knocks that down 9 out of 10. Just missed it. On to the next one.

We needed Franks defense to close the game....Jack plays hard, but hes shorter and older.

KP has gone away from what helped him get off to such a great start, and that was post play. When it was clear that Markkanen was giving him fits, KP should have gone into the paint, called for the ball, and posted him up. Instead he tried too many times to take him off the dribble, and jacked up too many shots.

watching the game right now. Frank just penetrated, drew the d and got the ball Oquinn for an easy bucket. He has looked great.
You playTrey Burke... Wally Szcerbiak

That foul called on Lee was horrible. You don't determine the outcome of a game on that play. Ridiculous call.

He had a couple of TO’s and a bunch of amazing assists and shot the lights out. Get a job Cartman718 lol. He was aggressive and penetrating and making plays. May be coming into his own. Once he does all this and can finish a contested layup I think he’ll be ready to start.

We had so many shots roll out and just not go down. Just wasn’t our night. KP struggles a bit with the rookie, not used to playing somebody his size. The reffing was god awful. Lopez takes 4 steps and cries for getting called for walking then they give them the payback call on KP for literally nothing. Hacking and whacking KP under the hoop all game with 0 calls. We shot 9 FT’s the whole game, gotta be a record. Their nobodies drained fadeaways all game while our high percentage shooters missed open looks. They even took a point of from Frank after review but it was clearly a three, madness. All this silliness aside and we still tied it up at the end and then they GIVE them the game with a phantom foul on the last shot (they never call that). It was a tough road loss that we scratched and clawed our way back into several times regardless of the worst calls and just bad luck.

Lance Thomas is playing good ball. Glue guy. Shot was off like the rest of the teams but his defense was incredible. I like him starting with THJ at the 2 when he comes back.

For as long as I can remember, whenever we reach a stretch of "winnable games" we lose

If not, Lopez dunk counts, and the team still loses.

Without THj it's so obvious our offense is lacking enough firepower. KP has to play like a beast, and he's not. Teams are defending him well. We need that second high level scorer and shot creator and without that it's tough since our PGs are not attacking scoring PGs either.

Don't see us staying .500 this year, but I've been ok with that as I think we need a good draft pick more than we need the playoffs.

One thing about Phil Jackson, he knows talent.
Lauri looks real good. In comparison to KP, he's about 80 percent of that player. KP clearly has more talent and will be a superstar, but looking back at it now, if we were to get 2 starters and Lauri for KP, from a re-building perspective it was never a bad thing to look at, especially with KP's brother running his mouth about KP leaving (and he still is)
