Nice run and effort there win or lose.

 

I can respect that.

 

Denver is only a tick better than the Lakers - that's how.

Well it all started long ago. When Luke benched his starters except Ingram. And this unit has been playing better basketball. Go figure

I agree. There was much better effort with this unit

Loss is on Russell and Randle.

Both failed to show up tonight and dug the team a huge whole.

What's up with all the Russell hate in here all of a sudden?

God forbid the guy doesn't have a pair of tits and some pompoms to cheer this team on from the sidelines. And I didn't know he's the only one allowed to not have a bad game

9 pages! Something good must've happened. It's been less than 5 a lot. Glad everyone's enjoying the game.

Get used to it, they may be talented but their mental strength is a huge problem, they get frustrated very easily and give up the effort

It's not sudden.

 

Russell has yet to do anything to prove he's worth the adoration he gets.  Fans are mysteriously protective of Russell without any reason at all.  If he wants the spotlight then he's gonna get the microscope - big time.  Deal with it, he's a pro, play like it - and act like it.

 

And yes, supporting your team when they're making a run is important.  It's all indicative of a player's attitude towards the game and his team.

 

Zubac, Williams and Young gave a good effort out there tonight.  Other than that another game, another loss - par for the course.

I've already accepted that already.  They're still young, they'll grow and understand that despite the game not going your way, you'll have to find other ways to make an impact.

Hope to see them turn it around next game.

I agree with fido. You support your team like you would want them to support you if your doing well or not. That's what great teammates do. Not mope and pout because your not out there.

Like seriously I want Zubac glued to Kareem and Hakeem this offseason. The kid is legit. We have to move Mozgov.

Spacing has a large part to do with it though...  Russell doesn't have much room to operate with the first unit when everything is clogged due to Randle.  

If you watch Lou with the second unit during that run, they essentially gave him the entire perimeter with Clarkson and Nick at the corner 3's, Ingram floating outside, and Zubac either pick and rolling or at the basket.

 

Randle literally clogs the area in which Russell is most deadly (mid-range) extended.  All that hand-off action with the half ass screens he sets does nothing.  The first unit has terrible spacing, it's really that simple.
