Of teams jacking up really low percentage shots near the end of quarters in the name of 2-for-1s? I'd much rather them just try to get a good shot and leave 3 seconds on the clock for the other team. It seems to rarely ever pay off.

That shot by Kyrie was incredibly stupid.

But the Lakers shot 36 free throws, we shot 10.

The fix was in.

Free throw disparity was a product of us taking way too many jumpers and then extending the game at the end.

Though officiating was similarly trash on both ends.

Tired of this team's lack of consistent effort and play?

Yeah, I'm getting there. They're reminding me more and more of last year's team every game.
Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.

If you're tired, I suspect the team is too.  They really seem to be in the midst of a slump.  Got to 30 wins by January as a young team that nobody expected to do much after Day 2 of the season.  I think it's caught up to them.

I haven't had much pleasure from watching them lately.  I think it may take the All-Star break for them to get back into it.  I hope that's what'll do it, anyway,
You’ll have to excuse my lengthiness—the reason I dread writing letters is because I am so apt to get to slinging wisdom & forget to let up. Thus much precious time is lost.

we lost by 1 point...Kyrie got fouled while shooting a 3 in the first quarter...JackassRef didn't give him 3  free throws, ball out of bounds...I knew we would lose then.
Larry Bird was Greater than you think.

Just as I said month ago. He thinks he's Kobe. That's how he's acting at least.

25 fouls called on us, 16 on the Lakers.
Lakers taking three steps before dribbling with no call.
The fix was in.

Sigh, I've been saying this for a month. This teams offense is just weird to me. Too many shots for the wrong guys. No cutters, players just stand outside the paint waiting for 3's...no one cuts through the lane, backdoors. I don't get it.

Don't get me started on Smart and his shot selection. How does Tatum play 30+ mins and get 4 points. SMH

The team has been playing hero ball and I'm not sure why.

im just a fan ,  im paid nothing ,  not gonna expend too much emotional energy on things i have no say in

CBS job to motivate and have the guys play right.   

Leave it up to the coachs to do their job.
