Too many cooks in the kitchenToo many posters over reacting.
There is too much talent on this team and the coaching staff is too good for this team to be bad or mediocre long term.
Was not able to be on the thread during the game - I can only imagine. What a stink fest! This was actually a game that it's better to lose than win. They thoroughly deserved the L, but it would have been worse if they had been able to sleep walk through 46 minutes and win it in the last 2. That's how the bad habits really start.
Brad needs to deliver a little tough love to certain underachieving players - that would be you Jaylen. And also be patient with the likes of Kyrie - who stunk for much of the game but eventually found his rhythm and was their best player in the 2nd half.
Give Orlando credit. They packed the lane, welcomed the 3's and got the crappy shooting night they needed from the C's in order to pull out a win. They did outhustle the Celtics for 3 and a half quarters, which was also discouraging - but this team still needs to find its rhythm at both ends of the floor. The game felt like a trip to the dentist.
Their good players aren't making shots which is the biggest issue. There will be more nights like this - but hopefully we'll get a nice bounce-back in OKC.
