    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.

    We were going to go through a rough patch.

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

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

    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.

    Disappointed in the team, but at least we didn't give up towards the end of the 4th when it looked like it was over. Hibbert was just plain awful. We need to be going to West consistently. He is as consistent a scorer as we have. Looks like we started to do this towards the end of the game, and hopefully this continues. Get some rest, fix the mistakes, and get ready for Miami!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    J.R. Smith would be a start.

    Hibbert seems like Rik Smits 2.0 at this point. Yes, they have different games, but they are very similar in that they have stretches where they look all world, and other stretches where they look extremely average. I really think Hibbert's minutes need to be limited even more. I like Roy, but he doesn't have, and probably never will have an extremely high motor.

    Losing George Hill hurts, bad. No George Hill means more Jones and Price. Granted Price shot the ball well tonight our perimeter defense was terrible again. I do not think its a coincidence the chemistry and defense has went downhill dramatically without Hill.

    Lou Amundson is lucky to be on an NBA roster. All he does is commit fouls and swat at the ball. Try actually catching it Lou.

    Tough not to be bummed out by that effort. Denver played well. Lawson was owning for stretches, Nene/Koufos outplayed Roy inside, and Afflalo hit that ice-cold dagger. Probably the worst defensive game of the year. Really weren't able to make any adjustments to stop the fast break. DWest missed one shot and yet we only fed him with the pick and roll (that led to switches) at the end of the 4th quarter. Killed on the rebounds and turnovers. Not playing good ball right now.

    All is not lost. We'll be fine. Every team has tough times and we're no exception.

    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...

    Roy looked tired tonight. Several times when it would have been an easy basket based upon his play earlier in the season, we come away with nothing. We gave away way too many 2nd chance points and let them get out on the break over and over again in the 1st half.

    Lawson, Affalo and Brewer all played very well and hit some tough shots as the game went on. They managed to force their preferred tempo for a majority of the game.

    We had a few chances that didn't break our way down the stretch, the missed FT that almost fell to us, West throwing it away. Once Nene went out injured, we should have been going to West much more regularly, since they had nobody to guard him. Oh well...

    If we were as good as Denver in transition we'd be almost unbeatable. We're probably bottom 5 in the league right now.

    David West and PG have been our bright spots in this losing streak..
