One of those nights from Drummond. A total, complete no show. This is why you do NOT pay him. Just let him walk. It’s Blake team. Need help on the perimeter!

Dre not getting his FGAs, time to pout and toss the ball.

Why is Maker getting the call over Wood?

I was wondering if we would see that.

The defense is the biggest issue. But man, what the **** is Casey doing with these substitution patterns?

Luke doing his best to save coach from his terrible lineup choices. 
 

No idea why you start Rose. Ball dominant guard in that starting lineup with Blake makes no sense and depletes your second unit.

Thon...made of paper inside and yet still can’t move his feet on the perimeter. Can’t shoot. Bad timing on the boards even though he has crazy long arms. Is Wood injured?

Figures out that Rose needs to be in the second unit, but starts Frazier who immediately gets a turnover.

Prepare to lose your **** when you hear his answer here.  What struggles?

If it doesn't work, go to the 4m50s mark to hear the question/answer.

He has a lot of company. NBA scoring up 14 pts in 8 yrs.

Thought the substitutions and lineups were atrocious last night. Not even hindsight. How do you deplete your second unit like that and expect to win? What possible rationale can you give to explain why you’d play your best 4 offensive players together and leave the second unit a barren wasteland. 
 

Thon is horrible. He was -14 last night and collected 1 stinkin rebound. Christian Wood needs to be the backup center. He has his flaws, but everyone and their mother can see that he’s shown a lot more than Maker. 
 

They’re 4-7 and about to be 4-8. It’s going to be a hole to dig out of. I think when they’re healthy they’re certainly better than last year, but I thought Casey was really terrible last night.

He wasn't drafted for his defense and does any scorer play defense anymore?

With Griffin back, I'm guessing that Luke's numbers will go down.

PG13 28 PPG last year.  Kawhi 26 PPG.  Embiid 27 PPG.  Giannis 27 PPG.  Each one all defense last year.  ****, 6 of the 10 all defensive players were over 20 PPG last year.

3 of the top 5 scorers in the league last year were all defensive team, 4 of the top 10.  And that isn't counting Lebron and Davis who have both made all defensive teams in the past.

Yes, scorers play defense.

Glad that reporter didn't back down.

Coach: "What struggles?"
Reporter: "His defense and he only had 1 rebound in 19 minutes"
Coach: "Well, that's something we'll look at"

Good idea coach. You do that. While you're at it, take a look at why Frazier is playing at all when he gives you nothing, Brown did a decent enough job at starting PG, and you could then keep Rose in the second unit. In fact, why don't you take a long look at your mind boggling lineup choices from top to bottom.

In Thon Maker's defense, he's Thon Maker.

Yes, scorers play defense.

Some do, a lot don't. You also have guys like Harden, Curry, KAT, Lillard, the overrated defensively Westbrook and our very own Blake Griffin who don't really play much defense. Lebron doesn't bother playing defense anymore either, only when he feels like it. One of your favorites Devin Booker doesn't play any defense either.

Point being that Kennard is supposed to be a scorer, he's never going to be a plus defender. He can stand to improve defensively but his calling card will always be offense.
