Big test tomorrow vs the bucks. Today kinda felt like they just did enough and were looking ahead.

Jeez I really want Neil to pull the trigger on a trade to find us an upgrade at the wing position.

The Current roster simply has a ceiling of 45-50 wins and an early playoff exit, so no point getting to high with the wins or to low with the losses.

Yep. Still physically soft and defensively inconsistent/inept. Have enough offensive talent to simply shoot our way to some success but only gets you so far. Seriously I'd be looking at dealing CJ and perhaps Leonard (although no one would want him).

Meyers has been good this season. Getting over 12 minutes a game and averaging 19 points and 12 rebounds per 36. Shooting 52/53/100!

Unfortunately I can’t see us dealing CJ because Dame loves him.

I’m interested to see what we do with Aminu. Sure he’s a great defender but he’s a liability offensively and having a starting 4 and 5 who can’t stretch the floor really kills the spacing of the starting unit. Given he is out of contract after this year I wonder who we could look at to replace him? A player in the Tobias Harris mould would be perfect.

See what you're saying but I quite like Aminu. Strong and versatile defensively and can hit the 3. Think we have bigger issues.

Shambolic, last 2 games we've lost by a combined total of 71 points.
And our point guard sized SG went 8/19 and barely got to the free throw line at all while Turner played like an absolute scrub. Layman is also shit. Don't know why he's starting over Harkless or Swanigan. They aren't great either. But they would be less shit.

CJ missed a game winner attempt as we went down the Nuggets home. We fought the game out but dug ourselves a sizable hole in the first half. Frustrating though as that's now losses at home to conference rivals Lakers, Clippers & Nuggets.

Loss in Dallas today, make that 3-8 in our last 11 games. Surely something has to give in the near future if things don't turnaround ?

Some clutch late shots from Dame and CJ gave us the win against the Wolves the other day, Nurk also had a good game against Towns. We're looking every bit a 7th or 8th seed looking to get pummelled in the first round yet again.
