Didn't Royce go to Baylor? If he did now we have an explanation why he sucked so bad. He was trying to end the game quickly so he could watch his team. This loss is on Royce and DM. Coach deserves some blame. He should have bench both of the guys and tried other players. Conley. Bogey and Rudy should have gotten more shots. I never understood shooting yourself out of a slump in a game.

It was like we played with no sense of urgency until we were down by 105 points and then it was too late. I think it was right that no player in the box score had a + by their name through 3 quarters. Our starters showed they can play in garbage time.

Didn’t Donovan miss both games before? We should run away with this one. I predict we’ll play so well that Quin is going to be pissed. Royce is probably going for a career high, if Quin doesn’t pull him before that.

Damn.

Suns playing Rockets twice then Wizards at home. Gotta win in Phoenix on Wednesday if we wanna protect our top seed spot.

In the last 23 games the playoff teams we beat were:
1. Short-handed Clippers on road who then beat us back at full strength
2. @ Celtics
3. Short-handed Nets
4. Short-handed Lakers
I like that you chose to stop there. The three games before that were beating philly, miami, and milwaukee.

I'm sure it time to panic though... It's not like we have the best seed right now.

Just all the games ESPN had in their schedule sidebar. I could have cherry picked and stopped at 15 which is still a significant amount of games. And who is panicking and saying we aren't the best seed right now?
We are deep, healthy and playing good team basketball. But if we fall short of getting to the conference finals (and not getting bounced by a healthy LAL) I am sure we will analyze the regular season wins and losses.

They haven't been playing worse than Mavs during their last games.
I give us that - we generally beat the teams we are supposed to. Sure we had that rough patch against the Warriors and the Wiz but we take care of business especially at home.

I was at the American Airlines Center today and felt embarassed by Royce performance. At some point in the 3rd, they were just leaving him open and doubling Clarkson/Mitchel. I mean, what harm could he do?
Anyways, super nice to watch a game in the arena feeling the energy and seeing the guys I root for every 2 days a little closer. Funny thing, a LOT of Jazz fans attending the game very loud fans despiste the poor performance.
