Maybe they have some sort of ethical objection to a number of free throw makes in a game.

They’ll probably win but you can’t tell me that their wildly inconsistent play doesn’t bug you.
I agree watching them is frustrating at times but this is the NBA. Even the dregs of the league make runs. Orlando isn't a horrible squad - they can be competitive some nights. I cannot recall a team that consistently wins wire-to-wire, even against an inferior team. And I watch entirely too much NBA.

Holy shit, the Thunder are going to retire their first number ever.

And it's going to be Nick Collison.

I'm serious.

I don't post much round these parts anymore but cant you criticize how they are playing without the implication being that a stretch of bad play is somehow unusual for an NBA team?

I think it's more that everyone totally freaks out whenever a) energy slips for 5 minutes b) a few shots don't go in

People can and should post whatever they want. But proclaiming this a loss early in the second quarter is strange. As everyone knows, the NBA is unique in that teams make runs regularly.

One trip down, Brown receiver a pass, quick pass to Tatum, quick pass back to Brown, open 3, make.

Next trip down, Brown receives a pass, quick pass to Rozier, Rozier dribbles around for 10 seconds, possession goes to shit.

Orlando is a brutal brutal example of horrendous DJing and sound effects ruining sports. I’m legitimately distracted now that I’ve noticed it

Just a fucking assault on the ears

I think it helps that there's no one in the stadium. How often can you hear the players on the floor like you can here?

I still have flashbacks to when the Celtics played them in the playoffs during the Big 3 era. “THREEEEEEEEEE....Hedo Turk-o-gluuu...pinball sound effect”...ugh.

Was so nice to see the ball end up in Morris' hands with the clock going down. That used to be the exclusive domain of the Marcus Smart brick.

If 2016 Kyrie Irving saw clips of himself on D now, he'd think they were doctored. He's getting to Smart-like levels of moving his feet 1-on-1

Imo it's better for them to have a bad stretch, gut it out, and start playing the right way than it would be to have another beatdown of a shitty team.

At the game. Feels like a 50/50 crowd here. Thinking of volunteering to take free throws for them tonight.
Also, please attack the rim.
