Told you all the only noise they would make would be a big thud. I think some floorboards actually cracked.

Hoffarber should start growing his hair out, see if he can get a gig with the Lynx development squad.

It's quite obvious this team has no answer for quality players like Crawford and that kid from Ohio State.
Well, there's always next year or the year after or the year after that, etc.

That thud you heard was our shots banging off the backboard. How many shots did we miss inside of 6 feet? Sampson 2 for 8 for the game, Iverson 2-7, Carter 1-6, Joseph 1-6 and Hoffarber 2-7 -- 30% shooting as a team. By next year Hoffarber needs to figure out how to get open with people guarding him. You can't have your best shooter only getting 7 shots in a big game. The offense was again stagnant, everyone standing around until Westy decided he wanted to throw something towards the backboard.

Fatigue must still be lingering as only one player scores in double figures? Should know Westbrook would be the showboat for his last Gopher game! See ya! Now next year they can play as a team!

It's a tough team to watch offensively. I've never seen a jump shooter stand around as much as Hoffarber. It never seems like they are running him thru screens for a catch and shoot. If you aren't going to do that with him, he may as well come out because he will hurt you defensively.

Someone check and see if Sampson has a pulse. I not sure I've seen a 19-20 year old kid play the game with less emotion or fire. If you aren't going to play Sampson and Iverson much together, Iverson has to start just for the sake that he will play with some toughness.

Tubby needs to look at what he's doing offensively. About the only thing they do with success is an occasional High Low game in the post...ugly, ugly, ugly.

I don't get why Damian Johnson didn't guard Crawford. Common sense that they needed to stop, or at least slow down Crawford.
