    Dame needs to be more consistent with his 3 point shooting. What saves his percentages is these supernova streaks he goes on every year for 2-3 weeks. But other than that he’s always on and off

    The only designed touches he gets in a scoring position are post entries and pick n roll. Would love to have some more versatility in terms of getting him the ball.

    We need a lot of shots to drop in the second half. No question there.

    Let's pay him 50 millions for making the right passes. Pathetic

    He's not being held accountable. Stotts let's him shoot whatever midrange shots he wants (even encourages it) and hes usually inefficient because of it. Every now and then he has a good game but most of the time this is the crap we get.

    Our hope they cool down hitting those 3 damn 61 percent and a lot them was contested shots. Boston play very good defense and they definitely got us out of our rythem we even missing open shots. Nurk and Trent had a good 1st half.

    Me too but our perimeter D just isn't good enough. It was wishful thinking that we would put a worse defender out there with Dame and CJ when they need a defensive specialist that covers for them. That doesn't mean I don't think we can make the playoffs, it just means that teams like Boston and Houston coming up are nightmares for us.

    Well maybe if we can cut it to 12 or so this quarter we have a shot. Kemba should be in min restriction. Need to find a way to slow Tatum down. And Whiteside should not play a single second this half. Total wasteman

    I think Dame will have a really big second half but I don't know if we can get enough stops for it to get us to a win in this one. That being said I've seen less likely comebacks before but not too often.

    We haven't seen Dame play this poorly in a while. He needs to step up

    He looks rusty, IMO he should have played more pre season
