    Beverly shoots 5-13.
    Russell shoots 9-21.
    Beasley shoots 4-12.
    Either fire the coach after this game or trade Towns to a team who values him. Obviously the T wolves don't give a shit.

    Edit: towns is a guy I would give up our draft pick for. When he used to matter for his team, he was scary good on offense like Embiid, a guy who could hurt you from anywhere and there wasn't much you could do about it.

    He also helped fuel the fall behind.

    Ant and Jordan Poole are reasons why you don’t give up on young guys like Keon Johnson too soon. Poole had stints in the G-League just last season.

    Warriors putting up crazy efficiency so far. I wonder what the playoff single-game PPS record is.

    What’s with all the Villanova guards. They are just tough

    At least our disaster of a season netted us a lottery pick. Utah gets embarrassed and now they have to blow it up without the pick as an asset.

    To which team? The suns, Grizzlies, warriors? I keep forgetting which team you're a fan of.

    The Jazz might look a lot different next season.

    I wonder if they’ll look to trade Rudy Gobert?

    I would trade Simons for Poole straight up

    they are a case study in why you don't pay max money to a C unless he's as good as Jokic or Embiid. They owe Gobert 42.5M/year for the next 4 seasons, and even being a DPOY and leading rebounder, that's simply way too much money for an NBA C in the modern NBA
