    I really think that a lineup of

    Ford
    Head
    Dunleavy
    Solomon
    Hibbert

    Would give us the best chance to win. Having Dunleavy match up with Love is just not smart.

    Wells tweeted that McRoberts will start and TJ is going to be the THIRD PG behind Watson and Price.

    AND about time! I begin to think he was growing it out like the boy does who donates his hair to be made into wigs. Great cause btw.

    Classic example of a coach setting a player up to fail - I really like Luther Head as an offensive bump from the bench, even as a pseudo PG with no other PG for stretches. But starting him at SG here with a massive size disadvantage had failure written all over it. So Head hits the bench with 2 fouls and is off to a "bad start" even though there wasn't much he could do.

    The Rush start tonight was the obvious choice, but JOB forced the issue.


    I like seeing Josh go at Kevin Love, that's a great litmus test for him.

    Very smart defensive rotation by McRoberts just now.

    Josh rebound and leads the break. What other big on the roster can do that?

    There is one thing that Dun has always been and that is streaky. So this is probably a good sign

    Rush just showed a minute or so why I like him. Trying to feed Roy he used his dribble to reset his floor position and create a safer passing angle. Subtle basics but tons of guys just force the pass rather than stepping back out or in to improve space.

    McBob with a couple rebounds a 3pter early. I hope he doesn't get fond of shooting 3 pters.

    Team is playing well. Mcbob is making a difference so far. Hitting a three in his second straight game. Hope he can keep it up. I like his new hair cut. Dun also looks good hitting that three.

    Maybe, but I haven't thought he looked gassed in the bad games, he looked distracted or disinterested. Look at his first play this game, the entry pass to him cutting the lane where he wasn't even looking and almost lost the pass completely, it caught him totally off guard. That's not "Dun like", and it's not just being tired 30 seconds into a game.

    Quinn even mentioned after the first make by Dun that he hadn't been missing short recently, but long. Very odd. I sure hope tonight is a sign of whatever is up going away because I was counting on him to pick up the Granger slack.

    Rush for three, man that is what I want to see from him more consistantly. Love his stroke from out there.

    PS - on Josh a few minutes ago, hilarious to see Kevin Love totally read the alley-oop to Josh for the steal. Kevin Love is a great player, so smart. Shows that Josh was making a good play the last 2 games against not so swift defenders.

    Oh, and he outlets to near mid court from baseline, Flynn takes the quick jumper at the FT line and LOVE flies in to almost get the O REB, but steps on the baseline. The dude is bad. That's why I had the man crush on his game. Hard to believe people doubted him.

    Nice no look pass by Watson to Solo for the dunk.

    Price shots a shot and hits as soon as he gets in the game. Nice save by him too. I want to see Price play PG and not SG.
