^^ That's how I feel as well Nashty. I was not impressed with this one at all. That third quarter left a very bitter taste for me.

My WMC is the we want Phil chant. Yeah I'd love if he came back next season too, but I want our teams focus on this season not Phil coming back.

Blowing the lead multiple times in this game...i know we ended up blowing them out...but once this team goes up by 15 points, they just stop playing. This CANNOT happen against the better teams (Memphis, LAC, GS, San Antonio, Houston)....if we let teams like that hang around, we will lose.

I was impressed at how we FINISHED the game, but I still wanna see more from this team before I'm convinced they can make the playoffs AND go far. If they ever needed a win streak, the time is now.

^^ Agreed completely. And quite honestly I feel like the Hack a Dwight was a huge tactical error for Dallas that really worked in our favor. Dallas' shooting rhythm was destroyed on offense with all the stoppage time, plus Dwight hit a good percentage down the stretch. I did like seeing that part. That basically cemented the game for us when we had kept going up and down with Dallas in the fourth.

The Grizzlies were 51-24 before losing to us, so I'm not too mad. We found a way to be a team that was obviously better than we were and looked pretty promising in the first half. But I don't know what happened in the second half, that is what concerns me going into the playoffs. Inconsistency and fatigue.

WMC: Yet another third quarter meltdown. I don't know what D' Antoni is doing or saying at half time during our home games, but every one of them we seem to come out completely ASLEEP at the wheel. No urgency. No taking care of the ball. No execution on O, and no defense. It's become completely predictable.

I understand that basketball is a game of runs, but this is something different. It's like our team comes out forgetting how to play. They act like morons for the first 5 - 6 minutes every third quarter at home. It's embarrassing. It's become a pattern at this point and it's really bothering me.

Since it keeps happening and nothing changes I have to put this one on the coaching staff to some extent.

Whaddya know, I tune in after the half, we immediately give up a 14-1 run. I turn off the game, we bounce back with a 21-9 run of our own.

Guess I can't watch Laker games anymore. :man6:

Please don't. At least wait until the playoffs. Maybe the situation is going to change then.

The Grizz are known for playing that type of defense, the good thing is they aren't great offensively so they couldn't expand on that 7 point lead they got. We got back the lead with an 8-0 run in only a few minutes.

If we play OKC in the 1st round and we turn the ball over at this rate, we'll get ran out the building. That's why we have problems with fast teams like Denver or Clippers. We have poor transition D so whenever we turn the ball over it leaves us at a big disadvantage.

^Well who better to step on than the Clippers?
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.
