dont think Kyrie going stay on this team if they continue to lose

I think he will. They will rebuild the team around him if they have to.

One of the worst quarters we've put together in a while.  Bench again let us down big time especially defensively.

Grizzlies look like a way better coached team.  It's not even close.


Bench wasn't great, but starters got smoked in the last half of the 2nd quarter.  Sloppy, slow, poor D.   Every game I start out with excitement, hoping they'll show what I think they can... and they consistently let me down.  Terrible quarter. Terrible.

I know it is a lot of people's knee jerk reaction just to blame Hayward and Brown for everything.  But it was the starters who completely stunk up the end of the 2nd quarter.  Sometimes I don't know what game some of you guys are watching?

Yeah, Hayward and Brown have played well tonight so far. Horford and Kyrie are stinking it up

No other way around it, this team is just maddeningly inconsistent.

Similar story to many games this season - we get off to a poor start to quarter due to poor bench play, which then carries over to our starters who can't stop the bleeding.  That's what I was referring to.

Hayward, Brown, and Rozier are shooting 9-13 Kyrie, Horford and Smart 3-12.

Not actually watching, just following the box score, but how the hell does Kyrie only have four shot attempts in the half?

So your argument  is our bench played so bad that it made out starters play awful for the final seven minutes of the quarter? Don't get me wrong, the bench gave up the lead. Went from up 3 to down 3 I think.  But the starters were worse.

Nowhere did I state that the starters were not at fault.  The point was that our struggles, esp defensively, stems back to how we started the quarter.  Theis and Yabusele really struggled defensively.
