They aren't even inconsistent anymore, that's what is scary. They've been consistently bad since the Orlando game and seem to be getting worse.
How about we see our entire team before we close the books on them? They are inconsistent because Mitch put this team together as led by Kobe/Pau/Dwight/Nash, right now those 4 have played 6 quarters together with guys who are supposed to be role players like Duhon and Jamison playing bigger roles than they should. Of course they would look inconsistent.
I think you missed my point
They were inconsistent earlier because they were blowing out teams and putting up some super impressive numbers, but still had trouble winning against teams they should have been beating.
Now they are just getting flat out smoked by everyone and they don't even look like an NBA team. That's not inconsistency, that's just a sign of a really terrible team.
how are we getting smoked? We lost today to CLE (which we have won only once in 9 years), with too many FTs missed and turnovers. We lost last week in the ORL/HOU because we didn't have an answer for hack a Dwight. We lost to the OKC game they were better (I'll accept that loss), Sunday we flat out got beat. Youre just exaggerating.
Our bench has improved significantly from last year to the start of this year to now
Our 3 pt% has improved significantly from last year to the start of this year to now
RIght now we're missing 2 huge pieces to the puzzle. They were built by Mitch to be big contributors day in and day out and right now they're not playing. We're thrusting role players into bigger roles and hence the losses, we're being competitive, we just cant put together a comprehensive 48 where we control the game and that has a lot to do with 2 of our 4 best players being out
