I think you might want to switch Maggs for Harrington. I have a feeling they'll rest Maggs one more game and put Al at the swing position.

Screw Al, if he's not shooting he offers nothing to the table. Give Wright more minutes please.

Thank god Wright's getting the change he deserves. All he's done on the court is positive, so it makes no sense to not give him playing time. Hopefully last game was not a fluke and Nellie sees the kind of player he has in his hands.

We have to stop Marc, because Memphis doesn't have a chance to win without him. If he doesn't have another career game against us, Dubs by 12.



PS: Al can't be traded soon enough.

Is Wright really starting? That's awesome. He deserves it. Now only if we could see some Anthony Randolph...

Brandan should absolutely get 30mins but Nellie needs to get something Al.

We were what 4-0 against Memphis last year, and 7-0 including 06-07. Should have known they were come hard against us in their home opener.

When a rookie center goes for 27 and 17 then that just says how weak the W's center is defensively!!! This wasn't even a high scoring game where he got wasy putback and layups. AB has been abused by alot of physical centers (i.e Nene) last night. Gasol against the rest of the league
12 and 12, 10 and 5 and 5 and 6. Very unacceptable!

Start B. Wright.

Gasol is a beast. Andris needs to stay on the floor and out of foul trouble.

I think Jackson needs to have a big game in order to win.

If it was up to me...

Starting Line Up
PG. Watson
SG. Azubuike
SF. Jackson
PF. Wright
C. Andris

Can we get a do-over from that last game against the Grizz? I like Watson starting at the PG and Buike playing at SG if Maggs isnt ready to go and I also like Turiaf starting at the 4 with Wright coming in shortly after tip. If Gasol goes off again, why not throw Hendrix at him to beat him up a bit? This is a very winnable game....the Dubs just need to heed one piece of advice....STOP SHOOTING THE DAMN 3!

Agree with you 100% TMC. Marc is the key. He's basically a Nene type player and we need to shut Marc out like we did Nene. Switch between Wright/Ronny/Andris and we should be fine.

If Maggs plays I see an easy win, but if he doesnt then it will be closer.

Warriors by 7.

P.S. TMC, whats your Profile Pic gonna be when Al's gone?
