    Anytime we play a team with a top ten point guard, PG should guard them. Sloppy win but a w is a w and I will take it, lets spank the cats this weekend.

    By the way, you know we need an starting point guard when our backup looked better than our starting one.

    I guess it's nice to have the luxury of going on a 5 game lose streak and still be 5 games above .500.... Where is Brooke tonight?

    He was shooting around before the game... but was in a suit by gametime.

    By the way AJ was one of the reasons we won tonight, he is not "the reason" if Danny doesn't go for 32 points we don't win this game.

    Rather specious reasoning here, vnzla. I'm sure you can find examples of every starting point guard─Steve Nash, Chris Paul, whomever─being outplayed by their backup from time-to-time. As long as it's not happening more often than not, then there isn't an issue. It's not happening more often than not for us, although I suspect that speaks more on how bad A.J. is than how good Darren is.

    Anyone still watching the game? The locker next to PG is filled with shoes... a good 7 or 8 pairs you can see just in the frame.

    .... I want some.

    Danny combing back fresh and tossing in 32 on 50% shooting with 4-of-7 from downtown saved the day! He was the only starter that finished with a positive +/- and played an impressive 41:51 coming off injury.

    Now let's start a winning streak. The schedule is set up for it.

    Good team win. Paul George's length was great (I know, thats what she said) on those deflections. This should be the start of at least a 4 game win streak.
    And the walls came tumbling down.....

    Really good to see signs of life from Roy and we need a point guard badly...

    Paul George is a hell of a player and so is Danny. David West is coming into his own.

    Every starter recorded a block. DC and PG had two each!

    All I got to see is that at least AJ can make a simple pass that a point guard is supposed to make, I am saying that he is the best thing ever? nope, do I think he did a decent job today? yep, either way I think we need an starting point guard because I've seen AJ do this before and I don't trust him doing it in a regular basis and DC is just a decent PG.

    AJ and Danny were excellent, on both sides of the ball. Good job Danny, for toughing it out like that.

    PG really picked it up defensively in the second. His offense was spotty right now, but he was really good.

    I love having Foster back, and I thought Roy did some definite positives.

    West's body language looked better, his defense drives me batty, and he passes less than Tyler, but he also makes his shots..

    Tyler.. He needs to work on his midrange shot, above anything. He's not hitting that at all, and that opens up a lot for him, IMO, particularly since teams know, and they are giving it to him. When he goes through spells of shooting well, he's hitting the foul line jumper, it just opens up his whole game. He needs to work on it.

    DC...it's an awful matchup for the kid. Deron's impossible to guard, and then you can't stick him on Morrow or Brooks. AJ's small too, but he's considerably stronger than DC, so it's easier for him to keep those guys from posting up. (And he's a better defender so he gets a hand in their face, but that isn't height related) Just a really hard game for DC to play. But he's come back from poor games and played really well this season, hopefully he does the same here.

    Granger is now at 39% for the year!

    Does anyone else think the offense is more star-oriented (where David West and Danny Granger are the "stars") now than it was to begin the season? I mean, it's not as egalitarian as was touted earlier this year.

    Good win , needed it . no complaints

    Humphries looked like a young Garnett tongiht. DC just cant guard any decent PG. If the opposing teams PG is bigger and stronger than DC. like D Will tonight, then DC gets abused. If its Ty Lawson he beats DC with quickness. Its not lack of effort , its only DC can guard PG that are average or DC is not badly outmatched in size.

    Keep DC as starter but if he gets beat , dont be afraid to yank him for AJ early. The more time AJ gets the more comfortable he looks

    Loved West's early aggression. He was given iut right back to Humphries early.

    PG was solid in many areas, 4 steals, 2 blks , 5 assists great defense on D Will

    We guarded the pick and roll much better tonight, Roy didnt get caught out past the top of the key

    MAn the schedule , on paper, is the easiest we will have ot all season......Bobcats twice, NO twice, Nets again, Golden State at home

    We have to knock it out the park, cause the next game after those above is the Bulls, and you know there going to bring it

    Good win, gets some rest, practice tomorrow
    Sittin on top of the world!

    She was reigning "person who most looks like Amanda Bynes" champion and had to defend her crown tonight.

    Good win but I have to laugh at the emotional up and downs of the majority of this board. One night a player is horrible and one night later they are stars waiting to happen. LOL Hopefully this win will help the fragile self confidence that so many players on the team seem to have.
