    Another lost for our record, I don't really know what to think about this team, no Gallinari, no Nene and we still lost?

    Wake me when this team decides it wants to play hard for 4 quarters again. Think we may have bought into out own hype a little too much.

    Bad news: 4 game losing streak likely.
    Good news: Should be followed by a 7 game winning streak. The schedule gets considerably easier after Miami.

    Roy played like a bumbling idiot. He played like he was selected to the d-league all star game.

    Hope he's not making that "play great for a bit the disappear for the rest of the season" a permanent part of his game.

    We were going to go through a rough patch.

    our team is flawed, not bad. Wouldn't surprise me if we beat the Heat.

    It would surprise me....we don't have the necessary depth to beat the Heat.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    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.

    Disagree, if it wasn't for our bench the Nuggets would have destroyed us. If we lose to the Heat it isn't because we don't have the depth, but because we don't have starters who are performing as well as they should.

    Excuse any offensive content, I'm a bit inebriated.

    Who the **** did we lose to? A bunch of nobodies missing their two best players.

    This is the worst kind of loss: ridden with false hope and to a team that has no chance in the playoffs.

    Where did "smashmouth basketball" go? **** this.

    That's what probably most teams thought when we won them early in the season (Lakers, Bulls etc). Denver is not a bunch of nobodies. They are a team above else. Just like us. At least, when we get it going.

    Reality check: We're a good team. We just don't seem to be a great team. Not right now at least. We may become a great team next year or later in the season. We could be half way there. I don't know when will it come but we just are not there yet.

    A poster in the game thread (his name elludes me right now) said something very important. Losing streaks lead to "look in the mirror" moments. This team needs this reality check. We need to know our limitations and how to overcome them.

    I like the attitude of believing that we can win every game. It gives us confidence. It's a good thing. We just need to make sure that this belief does not translate into cockiness.

    So, this losing streak may make us better in the long run. Of course, it sucks right now and it saddens (or angers, depends on the person) most of us.

    Also, I believe that this board needs a reality check as well. This team spoiled us. We went too high after the back-to-back road wins against Dallas and Minnesota. Let's be sincere for a moment. If at the start of the season someone told us that we would be 17 - 10 leading to the Miami home game who would have not taken it?

    All in all, it was a disappointing loss. There's no denying that. But we're a good team. We may not be a great team yet but jumping from 8th seed (with a losing record) to an ECF contender does not happen in a single year. We're not there yet. We're a legit, good team that battles for the 3rd to 6th seed and next year we're going to be even better.

    Another thing. I've turned the corner on Dahntay. I actually appreciate what he offers to this team. Defense, hustle and enthusiasm are all good qualities but wouldn't it be great if he had someone else to shoot those corner threes?

    ie (Missing George Hill)

    Another big disappointment. As Peck said, there is no reason why we should have lost that game without Nene and Gallonari. Granger started the second half at 10/12 FG%, then finished with... 10/18. What the hell? George picked it up a bit near the end (a few big 3's), but we're just struggling out there all the time.

    Three game losing streak. That feels great. Remember when we were in the top 3 in the East? Those were great times. Now, on paper, we're just as good as Orlando. I'm beginning to panic. We're going to have one helluva game on Tuesday, especially if George Hill still isn't back. I expect Granger not to show up, and Paul George to be a couple quarters late again.

    I'm worried like hell. The energy is there for us, the hustle is good, but we just start making mistakes that sabotage us so quickly. And then, before you know it, it's over. So much for David West being Captain Clutch; he threw away that pass to DC so easily.

    I really hope we can make some more roster moves in the next few weeks. Something that shouldn't make a huge difference, but does.

    Our arena, their arena, Rucker park, it just doesn't matter. We're bigger, longer, younger, faster, and hungrier.

    I hate to follow fold of some people overreacting, but the game on Tuesday will be lucky if it's not a blow-out. Our team is missing something, it's like Roy and PG got invited to Orlando and the team was satisfied... I simply don't get it. Roy having 5 rebounds is unacceptable...

    A leader. And by leader I mean a point guard. We play a lot of PnR/PnP but when it doesn't work there is a lot of standing around going on. This has to be fixed and I dont think DC has the "stripes" yet. He doesnt show the leadership to get guys in the right spots.

    From the looks of it, he's not going to be playing many games period.

    You and I both know his reb'n and hustle was sorely missed in this game. He could have been the difference in winning instead of losing. 31 rebs with only 6 o-reb... patheticly embarrassing!
