    As soon as our offense starts to get better, our defense goes to shit again. Not closing out on shooters, poor decision making, lack of focus, etc etc. Gave up 55% from the field today. Just brutal

    Since that game @ ATL, it hasn't been looking right.

    It’s annoying because it’s making me resent Aminu, and that shouldn’t be happening because he’s a good player..just not a damn power forward and it seems like the only person who doesn’t see that is the one that should.

    We could have won if some of those late threes would've dropped. They rarely do though.

    Stupid comment, Lillard is my favourite Player, but he needs to realize when his 3point Shooting isn't falling, he needs to Stop Shooting 3s and attack the Basket, or more Pnr with Nurkic.

    So can I blame 12-42 from 3, or was it the refs or Stotts?

    He attacked the basket more than any other player this game. He got many open 3s. It'd be foolish to have him pass up open 3s.

    Most of the threes he took were open

    And Holiday torched us too. Sliding Aminu over to SF and letting him guard Holiday would've solved two problems.

    When Dame was on the court, we outscored NOP. But apparently the loss is on him because he couldn't pick up enough of the benches slack.

    this L has been coming, Nurk had 11 pts in the 1st quarter and for some reason we stopped running plays for him in the next two quarters and we runned couple of plays for him in the fourth... he scored once, gone to the free throw line twice and made those 4 free throws

    why did we stopped running plays for him is beyond me, its clearly the reason we lost this game... this one is on Terry Stotts, no doubt

    Not only that but we consistently settled for jumpers even though they weren't falling. It feels like the reasons for every loss is more obvious than ever.

    just a bad coaching tonight... even though we missed a lot of shots, we shouldve won this game

    I missed the game but first thing I thought when I saw the box score was that "this is one game Myers should have played."

    I wonder if Paul Allen feels as apathetic as I do when he watches this team?
