Clarkson is such an annoying player. The sooner we can get rid of him and his chucking stat-padding self the better.

This was not a pleasant game to watch on many levels. I miss the period when Nance and TT were out. it seemed like then Love, Colin, and Cedi were building chemistry, and Cedi, in particular, was being given much more responsibilities and playmaking duties.
Ever since Nance got back Cedi has never really been able to get in a good rhythm in a game.

Nance is just trying to inflate his assist numbers at this point. When your starting center has a 13 points, 6 assists, and 3 rebounds. That isn't helping us win games or grow as a team.

Bad game for Sexton but I was impressed that he didn't force shots the last three times down the court trying to keep his streak of 20 going. Really better that he be done with that and not have it in his head anyway.

They really went away from the formula that has been working. Sexton pushing the ball in transition and Cedi helping to set up the half court offense. Nance doesn't bring anything to the starting unit, he just slows them down. I actually think he is out of position alot, even though he is constantly pointing at other guys.

Honestly Nance and his current game or the style he's attempting to play doesn't fit the team or his skill set. It's almost like he's trying to be something he's not.

Rough night for Cedi. Milwaukee is a good team and beat us steadily. Knight, Stauskus are essentially tank drivers, Clarkson too i guess.. but you cant allow 55% shooting and think you might win an nba game...

Can't be too mad that they looked a bit outclassed by the real that has a historically good win differential. The difference between this game and the one without Giannis was night and day and it mostly had to do with getting to the basket . Nobody could do it with him in there. I think he is dpoy. Cavs have looked competitive with teams lately, but hanging with the bucks is tough on a bad 3 point shooting night.

As for Nance, what the hell is he thinking? "We have been having success playing fast, time to come in and slow things down."

One of his major attributes is his ability to get down the floor. He needs to get it to the ball handler and run for the front of the rim. Love gets it up the floor faster and gets rid of it
