I don't get it...why is Lee given so much freedom offensively? He shoots almost always when he gets the ball, and our plays are made through him. 25% percent shooting from the field, just awful.

The defensive pressure has been decent, Sixers just seem to be playing exceptional, and the warriors getting bad breaks, can't believe they have only shoot 2 free-throws.

Plus D-Lee, and Brandon Rush are not playing so well, if they pick it up, and play better "D" then we have a chance.

I know I totally forgot about him, he has been absent, it's time like these you would expect him to step it up

We had our number of bad games during these past times...but this one might be one of the worst. Pathetic game...I feel stupid for just watching it, complete lack of effort by some players. I don't know why they play so much (Dorell, looking in your direction).

Just pathetic. I'm not sure what was Jackson trying to achieve with some of the rotations.

I didn't like how he went small for so much of the game. He gave Phili exactly what they wanted. He should have stuck with beans and Brown and clogged up the middle.

Sorry guys, I went to this game.... so, the warriors are 0-2 this season when I've seen them in person.

Mark Jackson looked like he had these "defensive only" rotations, that were just killers, as no one was an offensive playmaker. He looked at times like he wanted to play small ball, which just killed us.

Looking at the stats, when Kwame or Beans were in, the teams +/- wasn't so bad (+3 when Kwame was in, -2 with beans). When they played small ball, it was -32. That is cause for concern. SOLUTION: play kwame and beans more, especially if monta is going to be out.

That's pretty much the general impression, whether you were watching the game live or on TV/Internet. For some reason he played most of the game without a center in the game, and we did well with both Kwame and Andris. We stopped them, played good defense, and still had some offense, cause those two were there to grab rebounds and make room for other players. Rush is a good weapon, but not a primary one...he is a secondary option when you have guys like Steph and Monta. Dorell is the same kind of player, just he can't hit anything this year, whether we use him as a primary option on offense, or when he gets a ball on an open shot.

I'm hoping Jackson is smart enough to know where he went wrong and that he's gonna fix that. I don't wanna watch this crap of a game anymore just because they can't make adjustments. You need BIGS, they are overpaid for a reason! Everyone is looking for them, yet we keep ours on the bench. Beats me...
