I don't get why this team makes things so difficult. They went through stretches where they played excellent defense, leading to easy buckets....only to not play defense and give up easy buckets.

That why that small lineup is so deadly, its damn near impossible for someone to get out to the 3 point line once the on-ball defender is beat. If they try it opens up a driving lane.


Their defense is so good because you have long athletic guys who WANT to play defense (except Curry laugh.gif)

I hope I haven't insinuated I thought what they're doing is revolutionary. Nothing revolutionary about adding some more clever off ball screens and extra motion. It's mostly all of the in-between stuff. Curry enhances that system to another level yes, but they kill guys with any unit in the game. James can't be Curry, but he quite obviously can be very impactfull downhill, outside, and passing

Funny how playing defense and attacking the basket basically closed out that game. Settled for too many 3s early on, that resulted in embarrassing defense and baskets given up. Solid win once everything came together. Close outs, steals, and general hustle was good to see, and well and Brewer and Lawson playing like NBA players.

They got T'd up for that laugh.gif

I could see if they lined up the chicks from V live along the baseline but come on now. If anything that's a warning from the refs to not do it again...it's not like she busted it wide open or anything.

Good write-up here.

Need to get wins against division & conference teams. Will be important for seedings, cause we're already 0-2 vs Memphis, and 0-1 vs Dallas.

Good win against these Dall********. The defense picked up nicely and was pretty key in sealing this win. What Bev did tonight is exactly what i want to see from him. I hate the games where he's playing like 30 minutes only for him to score 6 points and contribute nothing but techs. Capela didn't have a good scoring night, but he was very active and was grabbing loads of boards. Harden hit clutch shots when we needed, and the bench overall was fairly solid. Got the Kings tomorrow as they're heading back from Mexico, and Dwight will be back in the lineup.

Also, our 45 million dollar man Parsons contributed 9 points and a bunch of bricks, while Ariza was 7/10 with 18 points and defense. Hmph.

Great, great win. Honestly don't think we'd perform as well if Dwight suited up, Houston played so well defensively because of Capela's ability to move his feet on the perimeter on the switch. The Dallas offense becomes stagnant when their aren't any mis matches in terms of size on the floor

Noticed some offensive changes and some defensive lapses during some of the games.

Rockets have interest in Markieff Morris, which could at least have something to do with Morris being inactive for their most recent game.

Montrezl Harrell was also assigned to Rio Grande Valley.

hmmmmmm...Markief is a poor man's D-Mo IMO. He'd be an upgrade over T Jones but I wouldn't give up anything more than T Jones to get him.

Really hope we pull this one out tonight, this is a handle your business type game and we've been known to have let down performances in these situations. Let's hope that changes tonight! My game day preview examining brooklyn's strength and weaknesses

Same here. No reason we shouldn't even this game up and start from scratch. We lost to NY at home, and beat them up there, so after losing the BK at home, we should be able to get them up there as well.

Appreciate the write-ups by the way

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand look at that, another loss, this time we actually make a comeback, getting a lot from the bench, yet get fleshed down the toilet due to the usual bad defense leading to terribly easy layups. We are now 0-4 vs the Nets and Nuggets, season sweeps. Just embarrassing.

Totally wasted Thornton AND Brewer's good games. And these were the damn Nets, with ISO Joe heating up in the 4th and not being seen since Trillville dropped Neva Eva.
