    A competitive game has turned into a GS laugher. The Warriors are now laughing and joking around with 8 mins left in the game 112-90/

    Nits has looked much better since the break. He's got length but I can see him 15-20 lbs heavier which I think will help him when he's 21-22.

    Mudiay had 23 points and 7 assists and shot well, but man, we get slaughtered when he is on the floor. Mudiay’s plus/minus was -22, the worst on the team by a decent margin. Is this really just a coincidence every game?

    Can't blame the bad D all on him but allowing 125 pts is going to get you a loss 9 times out of 10 esp when you're 24th in 3 pt shooting. I liked what Mudiay brought despite his +/- numbers.

    Well, Hornacek has been true to his word. The young guys are getting lots of minutes. The only exception is Beasley who continues to get lots of minutes regardless of how god awful he is playing.

    Difference was the FTs they were 22-26 and we were 7-9. We actually made 3 more buckets but 5 fewer 3s, that's the way the top team's play, 3s layups and FTs off dribble penetration.

    Nope .. it's the different lineups Horn puts Mudiay in plus Horn has no offense or defense plan for the 2nd half of the game ..
    GS played 3 different types of plans on us tonight .. the Knicks couldn't keep up on GS ssol uptempo passing scheme .. couldn't match 3 pt percentage .. and couldn't score on GS 2nd half lock down defense !!!

    I’m starting to think that we’re going to finish with the 9th worst record. Brooklyn did win tonight, but that bottom 8 is overall in the midsts of some elite level tanking. Other than Brooklyn, the rest of the bottom 8 are all on losing streaks ranging from 3 to 10 straight losses.

    I'm liking what I've seen of the young guys, I can see the Knicks bringing back Beas for a reasonable deal.

    9th is right on per ESPN.
    Lottery projections

    NOP* 17.3 0.2 0.8 1.1 1.2 37.3
    DEN 17.4 0.2 0.7 1.0 1.1 33.0
    Using ESPN's Basketball Power Index

    • The Cavaliers will receive the Nets' pick unprotected
    • The Lakers' pick will go to the 76ers if it lands at No. 1 or Nos. 6 to 30; the Celtics get the pick at Nos. 2 to 5
    • The Clippers will receive the Pistons' pick if it is outside the top four
    • The Suns will receive the Heat's pick if its outside the top seven
    • The Bulls will receive the Pelicans' pick if it is outside the top five

    Projecting the traded picks
    Where will traded picks land?

    Owned Owed by Convey? (%) No. 1/best (%) SOS (RK)
    CLE BKN 100 10.0 12
    PHI LAL 94.3 1.3 8
    BOS LAL 5.7 1.5 8
    LAC DET 96.4 <0.1 22
    CHI NOP 99.6 <0.1 5
    PHX MIA 99.5 <0.1 29
    Key: Convey = percentage chance the pick conveys this season; No. 1/Best = likelihood it lands at No. 1 or highest pick possible given protections; SOS = strength of schedule remaining for team that owes the pick.

    So true .. I don't understand why/how anyone would look at a players +/- numbers when the coach doesn't have one specific 5 player lineup that put up decent +/- numbers as a unit .. especially a coach who have been experimenting with different unsuccessful lineups since the start of the season.

    At least we have hope, even at 9. What was PHI last year when they jumped up?
