Had enough of Smart..
Trade him and Rozier I dont even freakin care.

If Stevens does not see Smart then he doesn't field him in.
Man Stevens has got some enormous man crush on this stupid small ball.

Kyrie should be the one taking that shot.. Not Stupid Smart.

cant complain about this L, it just didnt go in at the right moments
I think you can complain plenty.  Half the team didn't show up and Brad spent most of the night trying to find 5 guys who felt like playing.  And they lose to a crap team for their 4th in a row.

Worst loss of the season.

A fitting end to a horrible night. Kyrie doesn't touch the ball

Marcus trying to be a hero instead of making the correct play.
Marcus should have passed it up to Rozier, but Kyrie not touching the ball is on Kyrie.

He did an awful job coming to the ball and making himself available.
Haven’t watched the replay but I’m betting he was denied.  With only five seconds to go, there’s no time to work open.  Just gotta go with what you have, which unfortunately in this case was an easy outlet to Rozier who could have made a run at the rim.

Remember when we used to be a good team and didn’t play like dogs

Have to play the clippers today

At golden state will be a bloody mess

They never win in Denver

0-4 and a 7 game losing streak

This team has overachieved all year and now is being exposed

Glad the worst 3 point shooter on the floor wound up with the buzzer beater attempt. Marcus Smart has to come to terms that he can't shoot the basketball. He thinks he's Steph Curry.

Just play elite D and take the scraps on offense.

It's no doubt why he's such a polarizing player.

Smart is playing for a contract but he keeps costing himself money.

For those panicking.

We are still 3rd in the NBA overall and 1st in the East.

In their last 10:

Boston: 6-4
Toronto: 6-4
Cleveland: 3-7

this stretch is distressing and we've got to figure it out but as far as midseason swoons go it could be a lot worse. Tough stretch coming up so hopefully we figure it out.

Deliver me to the all star break.

Tatum needs to take a break. Think he’s hit a wall but it doesn’t mean he won’t bounce back. He also just had a kid - great for him and all but hope he doesn’t wear down completely.

As it turns out, we need Jaylen and Jayson to just be guys, as CBS says, to hold it down this season until Hayward is (hopefully) able to make a full recovery next year. We can’t really afford less than solid starter-caliber play from those two.

That trip and time off threw this team off.

Disappointing loss, Lakers playing above their pay-grade, no one can stop Kuzma.

I don't think it is really fair to blame Marcus for everything on that last play.  Not enough time to really set anything up, was able to at least get a decent look, and just didn't go down.
I know everyone would want KI taking that shot, but you take what you can get with 5 seconds left.  The smart-hate-over-reactions are typical.

Sometimes you gotta give some credit to the other team.  Lakers (kuzma mainly) knocked down a lot of shots tonight and they at times controlled the tempo and pace of the game.  Our def wasn't as good as it could be, but I have seen worse effort from us lately on D in other games. 

It sucks to lose the lakers, but uggg...onto GS.  Hopefully we can get out of this funk sometime soon.

Danny, for the love of God, get some freaking offensive help. The kids have come back down to Earth, and they can't be relied on consistently. It's essentially just Kyrie out there for large portions of the game with sprinkles of Morris and Al.
