    I was the one that started the everyone shut up about Stotts thread after we beat Denver. Apologies.

    Our strength in this series is our bench Stotts. Fucking use it. Dame and CJ have been steaming dog doo doo tonight. Try something different.

    It makes no sense man. This has always been one of my criticisms of Stotts! Hes too rigid in his defense. Different things work against different teams/players. Different things get killed by sifferent teams/players.

    I don't understand not having any rest between series. Why did Toronto get an extra day? That's some straight up bullshit.

    We need to look at this lead like we did vs the Nuggets. Smart plays and intensity and slowly chip that lead. Lets get it into single digits for the 4th and then try and get it back from there.

    I really want Dame to shut some of y’all up, it’s not like he’s going out there trying to fuck up... he’s playing hard, he will get it back, he always does.

    Harkless isn't doing that bad. He's 4-7. Aminu is garbage.

    Dame is playing like crap fail sleep on defense Thompson drill a 3 and what he got 6 turnovers. What Dame gets into trouble he likes to leave his feet. Big cardinal sin.

    I think I can count on one hand how many times Stotts has changed how we defend the pick and roll, and it's never lasted more than like half a game. That's in how many years?

    Well that's on Stotts too because we could've won that last series earlier.

    Man oh man as bad as this game is going, the only thing I can’t get over is just how amazingly bad Marc Jackson is as an announcer. This guy is completely unbearable.

    You can see he is hurt. He is trying 110% but he can’t run or jump like he usually can.

    As much as I like Aminu I can't wait until he is on a different team so I never have to see an Aminu/Harkless lineup again. This is not a knock of Aminu but when stotts just refuses to not use them boht at the same time its just hard to watch.
