    A couple things...

    I think Roy should have a big game.

    It's possible Tyrus Thomas who played his first game back from injury against Atlanta tonight (1/6) could replace DJ White or Derrick Brown in the starting lineup.

    KEMBA!! I haven't watched the Bobcats, and haven't seen the little guy in a while. I'm going to selfishly hope for a Price/Walker matchup.

    I see this game as an opportunity for both Hibbert and DW to have a good game against their bigs. Foster should be his usual self unless the back tightens up.

    Kemba would eat him alive my guess is both Kemba and DJ have monster games.
    DJ is playing really well right now.

    Price looks quicker this year and more mobile but he needs to attack a little more he can get in the paint but he chooses not to. Wonder if AJ's shot is better last year it was the worst in the NBA.

    Kemba's going to eat any of our guards alive. He's too fast. It's whether he makes his shots or not. Playing AJ on him might be to our benefit. The two of them could be so busy talking that Kemba gets distracted.

    Wow, Henderson is averaging 15.8 ppg, and Augustin is averaging 16.2 ppg and 7.3 apg. I guess they are finally coming around. We should be able to lock them down with PG, DC, and GH so I am not scared of them tomorrow. Also, their bigs kind of suck so as long as we don't have the back to back game hang over we should win easily.

    DJ had 21 and 12 and only 1 TO in 42 minutes. He would damn near be my dream pg if he defended better I love the way he plays.

    Kemba had 19 on 10 shots

    They will be very tiered tomorrow coming off an OT game especially DJ playing so many minutes. I still expect similar numbers for both.

    DJ white almost had a double double 14 and 9.

    BJ Mullens can play on offense it kind of makes OKC stupid for not giving him any minutes to see what they had. He is better than Cole Aldrich IMO.(and I normally prefer the banger and dirty worker over the skilled guy)

    Henderson and Diaw had an off night

    but they played well as a team just got done watching the replay.

    They are one of my favorite teams to watch especially with Magette out .

    For you guys who haven't watched them, Augustin will sneak up on you. He can play. Gerald Henderson is very hit or miss. One day he looks like a 20 PPG scorer, and the next he looks like ..... Dahntay Jones. Haha. Beware Diaw. Even Byron Mullens has been playing well lately. He took me off guard the other day watching him, and he hasn't stopped this week. Kemba is Collison without the jump shot right now. He looks really good though in stretches.

    Oh, and Biyambo can block some shots. He's got some serious, serious foul problems though. Nowhere near ready for big minutes yet.

    Anyway, those have been my impressions from the 3 games of them I've seen this year.

    Paul George just got shafted on SC. His alley hoop was the #5 top play. The broadcaster said "well you don't see very many Paul George highlights but here is one" WTF is that lol disrespect. I normally dont take stuff people say and get mad but the SC anchor has no clue what he is talking about.

    I meant to look, but what about Paul Georges dunk the other day on the rebound? The one where he went up trying to dunk with one hand, and on the way down realized he could reach it with the other hand? That was crazy.

    That had to be in the SC Top 10, right?

    And to think that those guys were close to be traded here for Ford and Rush.

    I am excited for this one. I am about to head downtown for the high school games at Conseco ..... Bankers Life, whatever. Just gonna stay downtown and wait for the Pacers game. Scored some seats just behind the courtside seats across the court from the visitors bench.

    Don't worry Seth, I will tell Gerald Henderson you love him for you.

    Wooooooo Go Pacers!!!!!

    The Bobcats starting lineup....

    At home in front of a terrific crowd, being a good team against a crappy team, there is no reason to lose this game.

    Should be a fun night. A big crowd is expected and a win is expected.

    HOME SWEET HOME!

    TOO FAST for DC??

    Thats blasphemy!


    But I will say im pretty excited to watch Kemba again as well. Loved watching him dominate the NCAA tournament.

    DJ Augustin is one of my favorite point guards in the league. It's too bad he's so underrated because he plays for the Bobcats.

    Also, I read a couple articles that said the Bobcats could shake up their starting line-up and go with what worked for them last night.

    Augustin/Kemba/Tyrus Thomas/Diaw/Mullens

    Aren't you the UConn fan?

    I have a hard time taking what you're saying into consideration. Kemba Walker is a good player and probably their best.

    We're going to eat the Bobcats alive. This team is not good. We have plenty of advantages over them.
