    This one really sucked. Watch the Pelicans end up one game from a higher seed.
    It’s funny how we as message board fans can see stuff the coach never sees. He does a ton of boneheaded subs and things of that nature. Just a very frustrating season because the team should never be below 500.

    I think Herb had fouled out

    herb was done when they called that foul on him for grabbing gobert jersey going for that rebound......willie went with robinson -earl which had dyson on Kat for that game winner.....he should have matched zeller on Kat for that last play but im guessing that willie thought that Kat would stay outside and shoot a jumper but it was their final drive and Kat realized the mismatch with dyson and drove to the rim and scored....

    For as much hate as Zeller has received here, I feel like he's been more than ok compared to what I was expecting.

    He's played well; no more LNJ at center. Play LNJ behind # 197 if you want, but no more center minutes.

    He will scrap. He isn’t terrible but he doesn’t really provide much apart from setting screens and the basics. But in his defense he tries hard which can’t be said for a lot of players. If we can get everyone healthy, we won’t really need him to do too much.

    You can't coach 6'7" to be 7"0' tall when you need 7'0" tall.

    True. But backup big is definitely on the list of “Need to upgrade ASAP.”
