    Doc Rivers might not wanna win this one and rest his players.. no benefit in being 2nd and facing Miami or Philly.. For Orlando, we could really dodge a bullet. Being 5th ain’t too bad. This is actually what i wanted. I didn’t want 2nd place. It was unrealistic and bad for our mindset and mentality going into the offseason. I see Cavs, Pacers as a lock to win and i could see some sneak „tanking“ by the Knicks and Bucks

    Klay needs plays to be drawn up for him. I don’t think we are that type of team right now.. Easiest way for this team is to get players that can playmake and create by themselves.

    https://x.com/fawzanamer_/status/1778968619549852022?s=46 we need a veteran, a serious veteran on this team! I actually don’t like Lebron at all, but he would do wonders for the mentality of this team.. Its no coincidence we’ve been bad recently. We have jokesters on the bench while loosing, players thinking we are in the playoffs guaranteed and players that find it cool to be in the situation we are in..

    https://x.com/thehoopcentral/status/1778936690452976061?s=46 What is this about? This is just a weird way to react. officiating was as expected very bad on us.. I skipped through some of the game. But i don’t know if we used our coaches challenge. Should have used it on the no foul on Lowry by Franz. They overturn it and we have the opportunity to make it a close game. Suggs also gets the tech (what a joke) and Philly has a nice cushion again..

    It’s getting old but i don’t matter to call out the same mistakes all over again.. Not the root cause of our lost, but still an important one. Mosley doesn’t know when to effectively call timeouts. It stands out and it hurts the game. Let Philly go to a 7 point lead before calling a timeout to start the game. And the problem is that it wasn’t a fluke 7 point lead, it was that Philly was playing good and we had no answers to stop them and had no clue on offense. What does that do? It makes the team play catchup against one of the best teams in the NBA. So entire first half we play catchup. We start the second half and coach let Philly go on another 7-10 point run before calling a timeout. Now we are playing catchup on a 14 point Philly lead. I don’t know. It’s just not for me. I watch a lot of Euroleague ball, a lot of legendary coaches. That’s a beginners mistake and usually just doesn’t happen. And i got news for the young team. They still don’t know what the playoffs feel like. And they only will know if Milwaukee wants them too. Disappointing ending to a mostly great season. Wake-up call and humbling as well. I hope management make the right conclusions and won’t be hesitant. If they had made the move at the deadline, we’d be a playoff team for sure. The move for Murray was right there. We could have at least added shooters to spread out the floor. Didn’t happen, so we struggle.. All the other teams had moves that helped them make a push for the playoffs. Indiana, Philly, Knicks made moves to make the playoffs and ultimately they did. Miami made a move and it got them a great push for the playoffs.

    absolutely!! But you can see others being quite casual these days.. The was they played against Charlotte and Houston are examples and kinda show that statement by Suggs is probably true for most in the locker room.. Paolo talking All NBA team is also kinda immature at this point

    Ain’t nobody on this team stopping Embiid and Maxey is an All Star with Embiid on the court. Ain’t no freaking way we win against the Sixers.. Oh and refs did t get the memo on foul calls on Embiid. He’s still getting that superstar treatment and you can’t touch him

    yes we are most definitely loosing against the Sixers and probably last game vs Bucks (depends on if they rest the 1-2 unit lol) Well finish in the playin and play Miami. We will loose and then we will face a mostly healthy Hawks team and loose again

    https://x.com/ballymagic/status/1778252799005913392?s=46 Hes right, but at the same time it’s his job to design plays that help the players.. If you let them play freestyle type basketball, then errors will happen more likely. Also i’m still on him for not having feel for timeouts. He let Milwaukee go for a 10 point lead before calling a timeout. We played catchup ever since.. He should have called a timeout way earlier, as it was clear we didn’t have a clue what to do on offense. Letting them play is just not a concept for me, but it’s Mosley concept. Imo he needs to sit down after the playin exit and reflect on that

    Im happy that we are having a tough stretch.. It keeps the team humble, as even in the highs, it was visible that we aren’t there yet. We have to work very hard for every W. They don’t come easy.. It also keeps it real for Weltmann, who tempts to be really slow at evaluating. If we’d have finished second, i bet he wouldn’t have been aggressive at all in the offseason.. It’s still no guarantee that we’ll be aggressive (as he didn’t even get a buy low shooter at the deadline, nor Dejaunte although it seemed very possible) So a playin with a possible 2 and out, should be very humbling for some unrealistic players, coaches, management and also fans..

    Now if NOLA would trade Murphy or Herb for WCJ, i’d do that.. And go after Claxton in FA… but i actually think we will go after Monk and draft Da Silva and call it a day this offseason We still have AB and also Jett in the pipelines

    Mehhh, bad game tonight.. Once again, what stood out to me, is that Mosley got outcoached on the timeout game. Udoka killed us with a great feel for the game and changes he made, when he called timeouts. Mosley had better timing this game. I give him that. But Mosley doesn’t affect the game with in game adjustments and feel for the game. Timing is just off too many times.
