We are starting Dun...

we've had slow starts lately..so we're starting Dun..

I guess I know which way Oby falls in the "tank vs. win" mindset..

Dunleavy starting tonight

JOB didn't even give the Murphy coming off the bench 2 games. Very surprising. He instead decides to use another lineup that has never been used before. Again very very surprising. :mad:

How could we go wrong defensively with Murph and Dun starting.

Ugh, ugly shooting.

Sookie

Okay..for godsakes...play Mcbob..or Solo..

Dahntay's a great defender..on SHOOTING GUARDS..not all star powerforwards..:mad:

QuickRelease

Solo would probably be the best defender we have for Bosh, other than Danny (maybe).

6 of 13 fga's for the Pacers are 3-ptrs. So far.

The Raptors announcers, referring to Murphleavy, claimed at the start of the game that we had some great passing big men on the court, lol...

So we also saw JOB put Danny on Bosh, which I have no problem with; he played late against him the last time these two saw each other. But when he gets in foul trouble, D Jones is brought into the game to defend him? I don't get this.

When you posted this, it was at 4. Then head made one, making us 2-5 from the 3pt line.

EDIT: Rush just made one, making us 3-6, 50%. I'm not a proponent of the JOB 3ball strategy, but they aren't shooting it horribly tonight.

I just saw that over the last 5 games Brandon Rush has averaged 5.4 assists per game. Thats very good for a SG and I think it supports my case to give him 5 minutes per game at PG in a trial period to see how he does.

I apologize then - I'm using Sportsline and it lists us as 4-7 right now.

I see the magic 3ball is in affect tonight. I like that Rush has taken the most shots...according to the latest box score that I saw.

We started tonight:

Watson
Rush
Dunleavy
Granger
Murphy

For anyone who didn't realize it.

According to Mike Wells on Twitter, Jim has said that from now on Murphy will start instead of Roy the majority of the time.

They have no answer for Roy on the low block really.

Dare I say? I believe that Rush and Hibbert are the two best players on the team.

I understand they aren't the most popular thing going right now but having a road game not on local television really pisses me off.

To be fair, Toronto also had a two PG lineup in.

I could've sworn Brandon got a block or two already though.

God forbid we try to exploit that on offense by shooting over the midget.

True. It's a shame we can't exploit by using Rush or D. Jones.

According to the box score, Roy Hibbert had 8 points in 7 minutes off the bench.

Jim O'Brien shouldn't be allowed to coach a YMCA team.

if we play our shooting guard at the shooting guard position, whose going to play at the PF position?

Come...on think about it..

Yes but now the Devil is pizzed because O'Brien started Hibbert over Troy the other night and Hell froze over.....

Hicks, could you please that forum games thread back to this board? The other one isn't near as active, I know I rarely go there and I'm sure its the same for others here. At least until we get people to give their opinion on it, and if we do the games we could have it in the other section.

Its not like O'Brien will play him until he fouls out anyway.

soon as roy went out with his 5th foul, and Troy come in , Raptors went on a big run..

coincidence? I think NOT..

WTF is Roy .. fouls or not , he should be in

Sookie
01-31-2010, 08:10 PM
can't make a come back with Watson in as opposed to Price in such little time. You need an offensive player there..

Roy shouldn't have come out..

JOB is infuriating.
