Dumb freaking turnovers.

Sloppy end to quarter.

Need to start winning again and making statement wins against these Eastern playoff foes.

At least we did not dig ourselves into big hole. Biggest deficit was 5 I believe.

At one point we were playing two 7 footers and we've still been out-rebounded at the half. They're not playing hard enough frankly.

Why do we still need to go with the Morris at PF nonsense? Horford should never play C when Gortat is in the game.

25 bench points in the 1st half is good.

other than Morris's 1 for 8, we were pretty efficient.  Just gotta crank up the D and cut out the dumb turnovers.

Coming off an embarrassing performance I expected more out of the C's tonight. Playing these guys even without Wall.
Wiz playing real well. So are the Cs. Tough hard fought game. I expect a great 3rd from the Green.

Yes, that somehow comes to bites us every time.

Brad loves to stretch the bench players minutes in the 1st half if he thinks he can get away with it.  That bench unit was out there for a long time.  Both Horford and Irving only with 12 minutes played each so far, so I would expect it.

Feels like we should be down more than 2.  We're in good shape all things considered.

I guess we see things differently. I see the C's playing down to their competition. Taking them for granted without Wall.

Considering we let Kyrie sit for a while and aren't getting calls when we attack the rim, we've got nothing to worry about.  I like what I see out of Monroe so far.  And if Jaylen can keep attacking the rim the Wizards have NOBODY who can guard him.
