apologies, I meant to say since last season
IMO they have two interrelated problems just from last season to this.

First, they definitely miss Hayward.

Secondly, their defence has really dropped off. My theory on this, apart from losing Smart to injury, is that losing Hayward has meant Tatum and Brown have had to taken on bigger offensive loads again. Kemba aside, they really can't generate much offence from anywhere else. Having Hayward meant they used to able to keep at least two scorers on the floor at all times, but now they're stretched thin.

Without looking at the numbers, I'd hazard a guess that Tatum and Brown's defence has fallen off due to fatigue and probably lack of focus. Which means they're able to run off misses less, which means they're forced into a half court offence more often. It begets a vicious cycle.

From you?

Evidence from the playoffs last year proves they are disorganised when it matters.

Well, no. Not from me.

From kawhi. Pg. Ibaka. Batum. Etc.

Last season doesn't mean anything to this season. That's dumb logic.

And the season before kawhi was FMVP. Show some respect.

If you were referring to lonzo ball - no it's been largely reported he is a possible trade. But he's being player very well since

Source for these Lonzo rumours? Be respectful? I'm not the one who laughed at every post I put up, disagreed with everything I said. That was you I'm afraid.

what a game this is!

Bucks trying to lose but what a shot that is under pressure corner 3 to send it to OT
What a weird game. Should've cruised to it. Then couldn't shoot. Then 3 x 3's in the last 45 seconds??

5th game in 7 days and a back to back game. Not worried about the loss at all.

We looked gassed in the 4th quarter. The fact we fought in the 4th to get it to OT then not give up in OT is a great sign imo.
Still a bad loss IMO. Top seed a priority. Had a chance to be just about clean and clear from the Bucks. Now both Nets and Bucks in with a good chance.
