Just thought I would make a game thread since one hasn't been made. The game is not on TV, but it is on radio. In addition to known injuries, Pollard will be sitting out as well due to an injury suffered in the LA game.

Jackson hurt? Shin or ankle? Possibly stepping on a foot?

Like Slick said on the air - let's hope its his shin.

Kevin Lee said that Jackson was kicked in the shin and could come back this game, although he is questionable.

Hicks

They said it was his shin, thankfully. Questionable to return, but I doubt he misses any games from it.

Apparently Reggie got a little shaken up as well and had to go to the bench, but he is ready to play when called upon.

Hicks

Jack is back on the bench and available now. Reggie was seen favoring a knee a little bit, but is still available when necessary.

Looks like AJ came to play against his old team -- 12 points so far

Thanks for starting the game thread, Deadshot, I didn't get back home as soon as I thought I would... :blush:

No problem - I didn't know whether I should or not, so I waited a minute or two after tipoff.

now BC is back, does that mean the P's are starting to play ??

Hicks

This one sounds like it's probably going to be a loss; we're missing shots, giving them second chances, and have gotten ourselves in a hole, which we suck at crawling out of without our big guns.

Does this mean that we will win the game I am going to on Tuesday night?

I know some of you guys think he is "Awesome" Croshere, but he really sucks, bad. Why oh Why is he on the floor? He can't hit a shot to save his life, he is a defensive liability, probably the poorest rebounding big man we have... why can't he be the one getting injured?
As much as I think the Hulk is a total noob who makes more rookie mistakes than any rookie ever, I'd rather see him playing, or even Edwards, anyone.

03-20-2005, 05:20 PM
Well, I think Hulk is still on IL, and as bad as Croshere has been I don't think Edwards can possibly be any better. He is a stiff among stiffs. A paragon of benchwarmers. A...um...yeah, that's about all I've got.

That was one of the most painful games I've ever watched. Just 5 good minutes of basketball in any quarter and we could have probably won.

This was one of those winnable games that could come back to haunt our playoff chances.

and Reggie getting in a tiff with Violet, (who shouldn't be in the NBA to begin with)

Violet: T on Reggie

Reggie: Violet, I wasn't talking about you. I was talking about my ex-wife.

Yeah, she was horrible. I wish the NBA would fire her ***.
