What did I just watch? We have 1:30 left in a 5 point game and Ollie has them play it out, a 45% ft shooter is on the floor for Tulsa and he had the ball just waiting to be fouled and we don't foul. We let them shoot with basically no time on the shot clock they get the offensive rebound and he let's them run the entire shot clock again. This is Ollie's worst coaching moment so far.

How do you not foul smith when he has the ball? Don't they go over that during the timeout

Agree. Terrible decision.

It was a bad decision but given everything we saw did you really expect them to pull it out? You can't play for 5 minutes and expect to win, no show by Boat and then Purvis and Hamilton reviving their "death by a thousand cuts" routine, they weren't going to win this game.

They definitely weren't pulling that one out.

But that doesn't make it any less strange that their head coach didn't feel like coaching tonight.

This team is just so inconsistent it's not funny. worst coaching job by Ollie by far. He's clearly distracted.

It's like they aren't practicing. Basic stuff they are choking on.

It's not only that decision. Team looked unprepared, he didn't use timeouts properly, he didn't look engaged in the game at all. He looked defeated.

No but I expect Ollie to coach, he wasn't into this game and the last 1:30 was little league stuff. I love KO but this was the worst I've seen from him. I know he's dealing with a lot but this was just a weird performance.

I agree. His personal life must be really affecting him. We've seen 3 or 4 games this year where the team was lethargic, sloppy and seemingly unprepared. I don't recall seeing that much if at all KO's first two years.

So much to point out...so much. Few minutes for Calhoun? Do we even know how to play a zone? Do we? Because we basically let a team that can't shoot from the outside, spread us out all game and take it to the hoop, get us in foul trouble and get easy buckets.

This is like the third game in a row where Ollie literally just sat on the bench the whole game, completely passive. I've seen this before from him and I just don't get it. How can you be fired up, and work the refs, and get your team pumped up one game, and then the next game just sit there??? I'm completely puzzled by his Jekyll and Hyde sideline coaching from game to game.

This is by far the WTF game of this decade.
WTF - illegal / moving screens.
WTF - missed free throws
WTF - KO sitting down the whole game
WTF - foul calls
WTF - was that sitting next to Mateen Cleaves.
I'm getting the buds and the Guinness Stout out tonight.

Calhoun got torched 3 times in the minimal amount of burn he got. And two of them he wasn't even trying. If you're going to stand upright on defense you're asking not to play. I love Calhoun but he didn't earn minutes tonight (not that any guard other than TSam played well).

Hate to say it, if coach needs to step aside the rest of the season to deal with life, it might benefit himself and the team. This isn't the same fiery coach we've seen the last few years. It's like he's on another planet, almost coaching down to who's he playing.

We deserved to lose tonight. Actually I am kind of glad we lost based on the way we played. Hopefully this lights a fire under their a*&^%. Only Coach knows this team's issues. Everything else we say is just speculation and all we can do is just support them. I trust in Coach, he is human, we all have bad days at work sometimes.

Haven't we seem him do this before? I seem to remember it happening last year. I'm not blaming his divorce for a bad job.

Bingo - during the time out they should have been told "Do not foul unless you get the 45% shooter alone away form the basket, then pounce immediately" and they had numerous chances. Really bad effort down the stretch and really all game by KO and the staff.
