    -Loved the work by Hanbrough/George/Lance in the end of the third.

    -I want to see more Paul George and Lance with less Dahntay and Rush.

    -If we want to keep from our starters struggling due to lack of chemistry/assertiveness all the time, we're probably going to have to increase either Paul George or Tyler Hansbrough's roles.

    -Danny was very, very good. Love what he did today.

    -Roy had a very good first half. Ditto for Tyler.

    -Loving Lance because he brings versatility, defense, and activity/energy.

    I'm glad we won....but how many "ugly" wins are we going to have?

    IMHO....we simply got luck that Dorrell Wright didn't hit that open 3pt shot at the end of the game.

    The way we played could allow us to "eek" out a win against Teams that we are somewhat equal to or way better then...but against Teams that are way better then us...they will beat each and every time.

    Also...one more thing....with the addition of Lance...we've added one more Player to the rotation. Did we end up having different lineups that we haven't really seen before?

    I recall seeing DC out there running the Goon Squad I really wonder if there is a certain sense of "unfamiliarity" among the different lineups.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I really liked seeing DC and Lance out there at the same time.

    There was a lot of ball movement.

    Lance seems more comfortable playing the 2, IMO.

    DC played like himself.

    An Interesting stat of the night...

    Our bigs combined for 9 assists ( Hibbert, McRoberts, Foster )

    While out point guards only combined for 5 ( DC , Stephenson, Price )

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    This was a sloppy game, IMO.

    Relatively poor ball movement overall, odd point guard play, and if not for that strong stretch by George, we would have lost this game. Just looked at the box score, and the assist count was pitifully low.

    I can't quite see what's happening here, but it's clear that they've moved away from anything resembling motion offense.

    Tired of watching DJ playing ball hog. It seems like every darn time he gets the ball in his hands, he shoots or drives to the hoop.

    The result of this: a lot of players standing around on subsequent possessions.

    The thing is , Lance is a good enough ball handler that you can play him in the backcourt with DC, and they both can play on and off the ball

    DC had 1 assist in 27 minutes, Lance had 2 in 13

    Personally I would like to see a Lance, PG, and Granger line up.

    Lance just needs to turn it down a bit. A few times, he was just a little out of control.

    But the kid has talent - no doubt. Hopefully once he gets comfortable playing and gets the jitters out of his system, he could be an important piece of this team.

    It's still early in the post JOB era, but I like what I'm seeing.

    Wow Roy and Josh had more assists than DC.

    DC slowed down the offense though, but there weren't too many assists from anyone.

    Troy will be the great Irish hope in Boston.. because you know.. it's Boston. He will be a fan favorite there and do no wrong. All those drive by dunks on him while he just turns his torso, the 5 rebounds per game he steals from Garnett at the FT line. NP. All he needs to do is hit that trailing 3pter and he is the golden boy. Very smart move by Troy going there.

    Also the Warriors DO NOT have the same record as us

    THIS. He's had a very good stretch, but it's time to shut it down.

    People were comparing AJ to Travis Best, but I think DC fits that bill more. I don't think DC is worth a big contract, maybe he will change my mind next year, but so far... I am not seeing it.

    george's defense really took the game over for a stretch there in the 4th. whether he was covering curry or ellis, gs just couldn't get a good shot off. the rest of the team could learn a thing or two watching pg play... and watching curry d up, i really don't understand how many of you view him as such a poor defender. he's not great, but he does put in the effort defensively... all in all big win because it'll be very tough for us to get 1 out of this road trip.

    I like watching this team. I like watching them struggle, because I know that means they are learning. I like watching them play well, because they are a fun team when on.

    Playing the young guys means that they will struggle, and we as a team will struggle. The complaining about some of them (coughDCcough) is getting old. Please let our first, second, and third year players develop and grow this year and enjoy it. Games will be more fun.

    Now, about the game

    Roy was on this game, really, passing scoring everything. We do need to find away to help him get the ball when he's posted up.

    Lance looks right at the SG spot. He missed some bunnies, but I think that was a combo of nerves and being tired.

    I thought DC was decent. Struggled at the end, but DC needs to learn how to win games.

    I thought Josh was pretty good too.

    Good to see PG snap out of his funk.

    Units, our starting unit needs to learn how to box out and rebound better (looking at you Roy and Josh..although good improvement today)

    Our second unit, is much better in transition than half court. I think AJ needs to look for his shot in the half court offense, and build from there. Everyone's just so stagnant there, I think the whole team tends to play better offensively when AJ's looking for his shot. However, they are clearly best in transition. And a very good defensive unit.

    Overall, I think if they want a good West trip, they need to pick up their energy. Sometimes it's good, and sometimes it's really poor. They aren't the most talented team, and they are quite young and deep, so it's their energy that is going to help them steal a few.

    Holy smokes there were only 9,557 people in attendance tonight!

    It looked like there were more people at the game than that.

    That's like the lowest of all year and we've been having big crowds lately.

    I couldn't make it tonight as I've been dealing with a bad headache all day.

    Just looking forward to the playoffs and I think everyone is too.

    How weird is it that he is the best shooter on the team behind Josh? And it's not like Josh is actually looking to score. DJ is... Maybe he should keep trying to score?

    I think DC is gonna improve to be better than Travis Best.

    I just want him to slow down the offense every game and pass the ball for good looks rather than try and force shots he's not comfortable taking.

    I see him averaging about 15-16 points and 6-7 assists throughout his career.

    If he would just pass, SOMETIMES, instead of taking a poor shot, he'd be a really really really good role player.
