About time we beat this Fbucking team!
About time we beat this Fbucking team!
He needs to do whatever will cause our opponent to have to pay more attention to him, thus further enabling West, George and Hill, and Granger upon his return. Crashing the boards seems like a great way of getting that accomplished. He won't be as successful every game as he was this game, but again, anything that draws more attention from the opposition will yield great results for the team.
Good game to bounce back after a disappointing loss to the Celtics yesterday. They didn't disappoint.
Have you noticed that our team at times is actually fun to watch.
I know that sounds odd but at the end of the day even some of those great 90's teams took a little to much pride in being a veteran no showtime fundamental team.
I love the fact that our young guys get out & run and now put on a show when they can. I know Lance sometimes has to give Frank ulcers but at the end of the day man that guy is only behind Mark Jackson & Jamaal Tinsley when it comes to being creative with the ball while dribbling. That behind the back pass hit West in the only spot it would work. That lead bounce pass to Hill between the Bucks was something else as well.
But it goes beyond Lance, it seems every single one of our team is trying to get in on the act and they are really trying to get West an alley oop play. Who wants to take odds that we see a Stephenson/West alley oop play before the year is over?
Really happy with how we are playing at home. Right up there with NYK and Miami in terms of being good at home.
Just a general thought that has been with me all season, but one of the reasons I am not worried about the adjustment when Danny returns is that this team is just begging for a spot up jump shooter in between Paul George and David West. You give Danny all the open looks that Sam Young and Gerald Green have been getting and it is going to be an easy low pressure and low impact (in terms of physical demand) way to integrate Danny back into the offense.
Really good game from our side. Stellar defense. And we are about to see some hockey action. Just good 24 hours.
Anyone know where I can see the crossover Lance gave Beno?
I'd love for Hibbert to simply give us low double figures in points where half of them come off putbacks. Means he's active on the offensive boards - always a good thing. I'm even more enthused about the total rebound and block numbers. That type of activity/energy is what we need from Roy consistently more than anything.
That said, it is worth questioning the influence of the type of interior guys Milwaukee runs out there. Long, athletic, but also thinner and not as physically strong as Boston's primary trio from the night before that manhandled us pretty well. We've got to prove we can stand up to that type of physicality as well.
But, overall, very happy with our energy and resilience in this one compared to the debacle in Beantown. There were some moments, such as Bucks quickly erasing our halftime lead, where we could have gotten down again, but we stayed in there.
Having GH back certainly doesn't hurt either. Sign me up for OJ, Young and whoever else for a test run of Green's minutes. Guy hits an early three and you think, okay now he's going to bust out of the alleged slump. Certainly last year's 3 % means he's eventually going to improve and stabilize as that's his forté. But, alas, it still winds up 1 for 7. If he ever did find his shot, man would it be a boost.
I am so afraid Lances cute play will not work in the second unit and it will make him look horrible when green or other botch his passes.
Mozgov is a b/u Center I would be interested in acquiring. Denver has too many Centers. I wonder if he might be available?
Why throw in another Center to the mix when we have Miles waiting in the wings?
I think that our depth at the C position is good.
I don't know why, but PGs not getting calls. He needs to accept it and quit *****ing. He's letting it get to his head.
The thing with Plumjam is he's a project with no experience. Mozgov has been in the league 3-4 years. Walsh when at NY originally signed him.
Mahinmi doesn't have the bulk Mozgov has, but Mahinmi is quicker.
It would take a trade, and I'm not sure the Pacers have a bench player/players Denver would want. Green's salary fits for those that want to get rid of Green. I had orginally thought about a trade using Pendergraph, but he only makes half of Mozgov's salary.
I'll be a Pacers homer and suggest a Green and DJ trade for Mozgov and Miller trade. I'd throw in a 2nd as a sweetner.
Simple. Plumlee is a project with no experience, and Mozgov has been a starter in the past. Heaven forbid this to happen, but if Hibbert gets hurt you need a player like Mozgov to be able to play. Can up imagine playing in the playoffs with Mahinmi starting and Plumjam and Pendergraph the b/u? To me that's not a pleasant thought!
