Watching for now. What happened to Baynes?

Nothing.  He's just rushing his shots (2).  Missed them both.  Looking a little sluggish making switches on D (PnR).

Need more of that (JB cutting to the rim).  2 easy layups + 1 where he got FT's.

We're fortunate as heck to only be down by 3.  We look absolutely terrible.

Another p----poor effort to start the game for the C's. Putrid defense + dumb decisions on offense = not a Merry Christmas for us. We're incredibly lucky to be down just three right now. We look awful.

Who are the ABC TV announcers? They're weak.

Jayln blew by the entire wizards team on that last layup. Just so much speed.

Yes but more enjoyable than listening to Jackson and JVG whine for two hours.

Not a good sign when Byrne has taken way more shots than Tatum🤨

Love the backdoor cut to KI.  C's basketball at its best.

Nice play by Brad.

But our defense continues to be atrocious.  It's like we're stuck in quicksand.

Jaylen's D has been horrible. Both Beal and Porter are killing him going around picks.

EDIT: And, man, Kyrie is just providing no resistance to Wall's first step at all. He's got to get better at that.

He's been open, just hasn't gotten the ball thru the hoop.

Tatum OTOH has been floating around the perimeter and hasn't done anything to get open.

Looks like we're going without Al or Kyrie with the 2nd unit for prolonged periods again.  I expect MM to look rusty and our bench to struggle again.

Perimeter defense is just so bad right now.
