I say bench IT and Frye. They're gonna leave anyways so let the young guys play. Actually, maybe we could use Frye instead of Lopez, but that's it really.

Yeah, we suck ass, but we did get some quality wins this season, so losses like this feel very frustrating.

I believe we make it. But then again as a kid, I used to think I can learn to fly.

Adam you’re an optimist esp with injured starter out, indefinitely, with the best of luck hit the other side of 35 wins but not 45 even I don’t dream like that!

If we got IT earlier, we would've had a solid chance. Let's just try and get our best record possible.

That Mavs loss hurt.  No business losing that game.  Luke has to be better.  Needed Brook when they went super big.

Every loss is gonna hurt because of that 9 game streak which really injured our chances

However I have to see what impact Thomas has. I think we’re desitned to win more games than we were supposed to now.

I wouldn’t be shocked at 40 wins now. Going 17-10 the rest of the way with Thomas here wouldn’t surprise me. Is that enough? I guess we’ll have to see

Seems like the IT conundrum was on display last night, right out of the gate.

Provides great offensive punch while getting exploited on defense.

Have to find a way to make him a net positive down the stretch, or else he’s not worth fooling with.

Personally, I think they can figure it out.

Nah, you play IT just in case you’ve struck gold and, you can’t find a star free agent (or 2) to sign.

There is very little downside to giving him a chance to produce down the stretch and hopefully elevate the team.

He's a defensive liability. I don't want him on this team.

He is also an elite shot creator which is something Ball desperately needs next to him

Great ball movement. Granted it was like 2 passes too many since burks had a dunk and passed out of it

Our switching screens strategy is [expletive]ed at that point. What would you do when teams put IT and Kuzma in the PnR?
