We are what we are. That's a top lower tier Team. That't around 5th place. Certainly can't call this Team in present form a contender for anything. We do not want to put out the energy defensively or just plain are incapable. Likely the latter.

Fella's, we were missing our best player and on the road against a quality team and we lost by 5 points.  Yes it was dissapointing but I wouldnt say it was unexpected.  Especially considering our best players best skill is making the palyers around him better.

It would have been easy to swallow if we got blown out but letting a game that you would have won if you just execute slip away is NEVER easy to swallow.

We scored enough to win. Maybe we get a couple more rebounds if rondo is playing but do you think we score anymore? Rondo isn't why we lost this game, a blind man can see that. We lost because of poor execution down the stretch and laughable rebounding in the first half.

Even Doc was impressed with scoring. Rebounding, defense, execution, nothing more than those three things.

  • Intensity!!!
A lot of it was energy. We looked lethargic in the first half. In the second half, mainly the third, we looked really good. It was the fifth game in four nights without our best player. I think it all caught up to us.
