Since the first preseason game is tonight, I figured it was time to move on from the offseason thread and start the new season thread.

As excited as I've ever been for the start of a season. nerd.gifpimp.gifhappy.gif

Let's get it!!!!

Don't think I've been this pumped for a preseason game in a while. Maybe because its Friday. I don't know. But I'm already picturing myself in my favorite chair, in front of my flat screen, with a beverage, to watch the game.

Shots aren't falling, but I like the way the second unit is looking. Good chemistry so far.

Rough around the edges, but already farther along at this point this year than we were last year. Looked much better. The intensity was there. 

 

And Josh Smith is already  miles better than Spencer Hawes.

Even though I still think he's the odd man out and won't be surprised if he doesn't finish the season, I have to say I liked the way Crawford played last night. Was looking to distribute first and took open shots or looked to take advantage of a favorable match-up. He's got better PG instincts than Austin, so that might end up being the role he plays on the second unit.

We'll see. I think its going to take some experimenting to figure out what 2nd unit combos work the best. And yeah, shoeking, I liked what I saw from Josh too.

Maybe. But the team made a trip to China like 3 years ago and it didn't seem to have much long-lasting impact. But it might be more beneficial this time since we have so many new guys.

I disagree completely. Think if he gets the start at the 3 he can be exactly what the doctor ordered for the Clips.

Bro they've played 2 preseason games :lol

 

Wesley Johnson has been a better 3pt shooter than Matt barnes his entire career and has been borderline elite from the corners this past few seasons. There's no reason not to be cautiously optimistic about Wesley, provided he starts. 

 

If he doesn't start and has to play with 2nd unit guys, well then my outlook on wes isn't nearly as promising.

Yes it is. That was the only bright spot from the game last night. Except I don't think Blake is being aggressive enough with his own offense.

Second unit is not impressing me at all.

Good news on injury front. Doc said Austin and CP were both able to practice today/should be available tomorrow.

 

Quote:
 

Austin Rivers initially expected he would need to wait until around Thursday to get cleared, so must have healed faster than expected

 

 

Great to hear.

There's no reason to lose by 42 points. Preseason, regular season, it's never a good look and it's pretty alarming that it happened. 

 

This team has looked awful in the preseason thus far and while it is preseason, we looked terrible in the preseason last year and took about 12 games in the regular season before we kicked into form. Started the season out 7-5 last two seasons and ended up in 3rd in the west both seasons.

 

If we're serious about contending for a title this year we've got to get out of that third seed and a big part of that is jumping out of the block strong which is why this is FAR from the ideal way you want to look with the season around the corner. The W's and L's at this point don't matter but they legit look terrible. 

 

What's most troublesome is how bad the 2nd unit is. It's pretty frightening how our "depth" has translated thus far. Wesley Johnson has looked the best out of our wings for that starting 3 spot and I would like to see him w/the starters.

^^^ Not going to lie, I'm concerned. Its not that we have 3 preseason Ls, but how they've looked in those losses. And, yes, the 2nd unit has been a huge disappointment. Doc either has to try a different line-up or change his philosophy with doing a complete line-change during games. Really feel like he should consider always having either Blake, CP or DJ in the game.

This is looking more and more apparent.

Let's not overreact either. The game was essentially even until the start of the 2nd half when it got away.

 

It's still the preseason. To say that this isn't working so far in the preseason would be accurate. To say it won't work this season is premature.

 

My point was just that it is preseason, so you can't overreact. However, you for sure can't be dismissive over that china trip and there are things that should be looked at critically as the season approaches.
