    That Pope kid looked damn good last night. We need a guy like him at SG.

    Watching Brandon Jennings play basketball makes me angry (seriously).

    Time for some PING PONG!

    Cousins was suspended for a 16th tech he received on Sunday so he had to sit. I watched the Kings game and they played competitively and even led at the end of 3. The game was close until about 4 minutes left, but the team that should have been in the playoffs>Suns were just better...just like the Thunder were in the end and pulled it out.

    We need to package these two and send them packing. To bad we can't move Jennings too. The new coach needs to limit his minutes by finding another pg, or sending Siva to the same shooting coach that Pope works with this summer.

    The whole team needs to be sentenced to free throw shooting prison camp this summer.

    That was the 5th most FG attempts that Durant has taken in 82 games. What MVP candidate wouldn't score 40 points if they attempted 37 shots (w/ fouls included)?

    Durant had only 4 rebounds, which is among his worst of the year. He had 0 steals, 0 blocks, and 3 turnovers. He hit only 1 three pointer. Think of how ugly his box score would have looked if we would have had Ibaka in the paint for us.

    Durant came away with 42 points on 40 possessions (FGA + shooting fouls + turnovers). 1.05 points per possession
    Singer came away with 20 points on 13 possessions. 1.53 points per possession.


    I will take that trade-off any day.


    We don't need to assign blame when our team gave one of the best efforts of the season.

    Nice stats. I think the loss was Singler's fault.

    Obviously. We really needed this w and losing to okc on the road is just unacceptable. I predict that it will be the straw that breaks the camel's back and loyer will never coach another game for the franchise.

    It was a make or break game for Loyer.

    One of the OKC announcers made mention last night about how Loyer was coaching the team to just get better each night via incremental improvement. As crazy as it sounds I do think the team improved under him.

    So, Tas is predicting Loyer will be a head coach for a different NBA team next year. Interesting...

    He yells vigorously. There is demand for that. If not an nba coach, maybe a floor trader.

    Whoever was at the end of our bench....because all of our young guys would have been playing that whole game with spot minutes for veterans/starters to account for possible fatigue.
