    At least it would be a big win to right our ship. I actually think it's good that we play a back-to-back. The guys must be chomping.

    We've fallen down to 12 in ESPN's power rankings, behind Indiana and Miami and Philly is 3 spots ahead of us. After that second half last night we should have a little momentum.

    I think we'll probably get killed again.

    This road trip has been as advertised, brutal. Even back home on Wednesday is gonna be tough.

    I give this team until Saturday's game to figure **** out.

    It's a tough match up for us, last time we got lucky with Simmons' injury.

    What does Don's tweet mean? Is he talking about my energy?

    The 76ers are stupid. This game will tell us a lot about the character of our team and individual players.

    For sure... they haven’t played well and Don has been off... fans are crazy... we live and die with wins and losses... we also spend crazy amounts of money on tickets and merch... our passion is what drives criticism and revenue. It would be difficult to have an infinite amount of internet judges and to have your work performance be publicly scrutinized constantly. Hopefully he takes that energy and uses it on the court.

    I expect a loss tonight but hopefully we play better... the issue isn’t just wins and losses it’s that we haven’t played well.

    See, it’s so much this. I get so annoyed by the dudes that say “it’s the schedule, it’s Quin’s complex offense, we always start slow, chill”.

    It’s not that we lose, it’s how we do it that’s so frustrating. Case in point, I can totally handle the Bucks loss on this trip because we simply got beat. We played a good game and theirs was just better.

    But those are rare. Usually it’s just a terrible case or us imploding or lack of chemistry or both. Sure, I give credit to other teams and how they impact us but it’s usually not the case. It’s usually very apparent the team isn’t clicking that game and that’s that.

    So I can handle losses and will always support the team, but I’m not going to pretend everything is ok until late February and just trust it will all work out ok and we are a WCF team. The evidence so far says we simply aren’t.

    We suck to start off games, then have to climb back into the games exerting too much energy then run out of gas. We need better starts.

    I like that Quin asked the team the tough question. At the same time I hope he's looking at himself in the mirror and realizing the offense needs to be changed. Can't run a basic single high screen most of the game and hope to score enough. We need to be more creative.

    Losing 4 out of 5 on this road trip would never have happened with the squad we had at the end of last season! No reason to beat a dead horse, but giving up Rubio and Favors was the deathnill of this Jazz squad for sure! Don't know for sure who pushed for this change but whomever it was, should be shot!

    It wouldn't have happened 'AT THE END OF LAST SEASON'. However, the BEGINNING of last season we SUCKED BAD. We'll be fine.
