We didn't play like the better team, but with all that, we were in it at the end. That last free throw was a heartbreaker.
Sadly AD was off his game or else we could have secured the win before those critical final free throws. In fact Davis had missed two in a row earlier that would send the crowd to a post game Wendy's freebie.
I kind of caused me to see the handwriting on the wall when his last three attempts was for the tie. It could have been a big win for the Pels. Hopefully we will continue to improve and take most of these close games in the future.

Agreed, despite recent success, this team is still a work in progress, and it's not fair to rely on AD and Jrue every single night. Jackson has been a recent (positive) addition to the rotation, and I still think they are trying to figure out Randle's playing time (another great addition, IMO). Defense and running the floor are this team's strengths, but when the first isn't firing, it kind of messes up the second. Still I'll take 4-1 every 5 games if we can get it.

Watching this Knicks game just reminds me how quickly things can turn in a game when a team goes cold. The Pels had a decent lead early, but then couldn't buy a shot in the second quarter. This has been happening a lot to the Pels... especially on the road.
It's especially troubling when Davis just can't make anything, from anywhere. :covri:

Pels are completely caving in against the Celtics tonight.
There is nothing fun about watching the Pels now that they forgot how to score.
They have become a turnover machine. It's so depressing.

Tim Frasier. Who knew?
I assume the players felt they did since it came out of their team meeting where Jrue said himself he wanted to be off ball. This team needs a true PG and Frazier may not be amazing, but if he can play like last night, it will right the ship enough to hold out till Payton comes back.
