    Be physical.
    Run them off the three point line.
    Feast down low. Do not make it a jump shooting contest.
    Make them foul you.
    Play with lots of energy. Stifle their runs.

    Push them hard they have to be more worn down. And just play our game.

    Coaches of the Month battling it out tonight: Vogel vs Stotts.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Could be a long night if Aldridge is shooting as well from mid range tonight as he did the last time we went to Portland.

    I have no clue what that means....but I think that avoidingtheclowns is going way beyond the call of duty when it comes to making these Game Day threads more interesting.

    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.

    This is one of the few starting lineups that can keep up with ours. It is important our bench plays well to win this game.

    Is Matthews a defender? He has his hands full with Stephenson

    Yes. Matthews would actually be a great fit for us. A 6'5 SG with a 6'8 wingspan that is a great defender and a fantastic outside shooter.
    Tonight, all flags must burn, in place of steeples.
    Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.

    Wes is one of the most underrated 2 way players in the league he is fantastic.


    Batum vs Paul George is a matchup I have been waiting for all season. They may cross match at times, but I can't wait to watch these wings go at it. I love all 4 of them great matchup tonight.

    I'm interested to see who Paul George will be guarding, it could be the difference between a win and a loss.

    Easier to stay up for a 1AM game than the 4AM start, n'est pas? Too late to stay up and too early to get up.
