That was ugly.

The passes were lazy. The jump shots were plentiful.

The rotations were slow, or non-existent.

And for the love of, can somebody please guard Brandon Bass?

I don't have words. They blew it. If they wanted a legitimate shot to prove the legitimacy of their season and win this series, they had the opportunity in the palm of their hands and pissed it away with absolutely terrible play.

There will be a recap up later. Probably a bit later. I'm going to subject myself to torture and re-watch that second half. Have fun with this one.
