That would make things a lot harder.

Van Exel has been injured all season, and is only a shell of his former self, while Jamaal is playing very well right now. I was figuring that I would get arguments either way so I call it a push.

Looks like JO is in the lineup.

He is (playing). :)

Hicks
02-24-2004, 07:08 PM
Claxton IS starting, btw.

kerosene
02-24-2004, 07:08 PM
Van Exel is still sort of banged up. He's played better the last 3 games but I really wish Speedy was healthy. I was looking forward to him and Tinsley. At least the battle of the Sixthmen will still go down (since both are starting right now).

Not injured now though. And Speedy Claxton starting, he is better than Tinsley too I think. Not sure how Tinsley has been playing well lately. 3 games since the break he has been pretty mediocre outside of hitting a few threes at the end of the wizards game.

Cactus Jax

Dampier unstoppable against us as usual.. :(

Hicks

Would've liked having Damp back in blue and gold. He and JO together would have been a force.

would you have traded damps for mullin knowing what you know now? (especially when we had Jalen then)

I'd love to have Damp back...I think he would fit into the lineup here perfectly

zxc

He has been playing poorly there for like 6 years. Not sure one good season 7 years after the trade makes me regret anything..

MarionDeputy
02-24-2004, 07:27 PM
I know its been said a few times before, but I think we really got a steal getting Anthony Johnson. He knows the back up role so well, when he comes on the floor, its like he has been in for 5 minutes already...

Yeah, was just thinking how at this point in the year how even if we hadn't signed Kenny we'd be OK. But of course that's if you assume Tinsley is where he is now without having to face a benching early on.

Good play by Freddy to draw the foul with the shot clock winding down. He's pretty good at that.

kerosene

W's assistant coach Keith Smart made the game winning shot for IU's last NCAA Championship.

On a related IU note, Funderburke has been released by the Kings.

Warriors getting much better shots than us. Van Exel starting to heat up. :(

Hicks
02-24-2004, 07:55 PM
Nice thing to hear there. Tinsley's hitting enough 3's now that he's taking advantage of the extra attention by driving and hitting open runners. Quinn said he's been working with Chuck Person on that stuff. :)

Roaming Gnome
02-24-2004, 07:57 PM
Is our help defense starting to get exploited? Sure seems like someone is always ready to get the kick outs and drill a 3, or an open mid range 2.

it has been lacking for quite a few games now

wow, what the hell is going on in this game? What was that thing with the tech on Rick and Jamaal all in the refs face?? weird.

Doesn't it seem like Rick is really high strung lately? He needs to chill out. Maybe visit some of his old portland buddies for a toke or something :p

JO has been looking good with the jumper. But other than that he has had a pretty weak game seems to me. 1 rebound? Ouch. And taking nothing but those jumpers on offense. But hey, if they are going in might as well keep at it.

Good call to call that a flagrant. He pulled on Freddy's head/neck. Dangerous.

Wait-- why did they shoot THREE FTs?

zxc
02-24-2004, 09:00 PM
Wait-- why did they shoot THREE FTs?

Musselman got a T I think.

Hicks
02-24-2004, 09:00 PM
Who committed the flagrant on whom?

Freddy got the step on Claxton, was going to stuff it, Claxton pulled on Freddy's head to foul him.

Hicks
02-24-2004, 09:02 PM
All things considered I suppose I'm encouraged that we're up 9 on them without Ron. I can't believe they've only won 6 road games this year.

Well, we built this big lead with AJ out there and he is playing really well. No reason to bring him back in with the game about over.

Hicks
02-24-2004, 09:19 PM
Looks like we're going to win it.

Come on, zxc, where's your "It's over"? You don't always have to save it for when we're LOSING.

How about instead of "It's over... =\", "It's over... :D"

zxc
02-24-2004, 09:21 PM
I dunno about It's over.. =\. More partial to Game over :(

Pretty good win. Though D was kinda poor for awhile.
