We dont match up well with anyone without Monta and Maggs in there. but hell, when they get back we'll have depth.

We really needed that extra spark from the bench like we had against denver. I guess it was different for this game since buike and wright started, even though wright was next non existent on the stat sheet

At least Randolph saw some time tonight.

He was on fire when he first came in, knocked down 4 jumpers in a row, blocked a shot( I think it was rudy gay's shot),quieted down in the 4th quarter tho.

he changed the way the offenders shot ......stats cant chart that.
was fired up which is good we have all seen he has heart.
he needs to be able to contain himself he got quick fouls on defense
and while on offense he imo let his emotions get a little bit ahead of him.

however he pllayed well and with a few games under his belt he will be one of the most fun / exciting guys on the floor.

Our team has depth. We were missing 3 starters last night and we shoulda woulda coulda won that game last night. We're a sub .500 team but we've been competitive every game this year. I like what Im seeing on the court. We're hustling, blocking shots, playing with energy and putting points on the board. Unfortunately we're being outclassed by our opponents. We don't currently have enough talent on the court to compete with teams who are at full strength.

Wright is showing a lot of promise and he's only going to get better.
Randolph is a player. He's competitive as hell.
Azubuike is a good scorer and has improved since last year.
Turiaf is my new favorite player on the team.
Andris is the most improved player on our team.
Jackson has stepped up big time since Barons departure. On and off the court.

1. Im looking forward to Montas return.
2. Im looking forward to Maggettes return.
3. Im looking forward to Al getting traded.
4. Our team needs to define what a bad shot is. No more walking down the court and launching 3s with a hand in your face with no one under the rim to grab the offensive board.
5. We need better communication on the defensive side of the ball. Too many open shots.

Happy days ahead...

Caught a little of this game. I don't care so much about the loss as much as we finally got to see some bench players play!

Today's practice: Shoot 2000 free throws................................

This game was winnable until Nellie went dual point guard and we had a FT brickfest courtesy of Rowell fav Jack, Belinelli, and one armed CJ Watson. A legit coach would of kept Biedrins, Turiaf at center and Wright/AR as PF ... but no we got pounded Boozer style with Jack as the PF. I don't expect our rookies to play flawlessly ... but this four guard rotation gets old ... can we stay on the shooter shesh... why do we collapse the zone and give Mayo and Rudy open treis. Having a rebounder like Wright would of prevented a lot of the rookie mistake on rotations. I don't expect us to win with young guys playing a lot ... but place a legit forward to rebound with Biedrins.

Actually, we went on an 11-0 run in the 4th WITH the four guards in there. Wright got yanked in the 3rd for not helping azu on the baseline when rudy gay dunked with no one around. THATS why they changed the rotations.

missed the first quarter 'cause traffic was insane.

General Observations:
Finishing around the basket was pretty poor. If we had maggs I think that would not be the case. I was surprised to see Williams in, he looked pretty good in there though. I noticed when Marco Belinelli was in we really suffered on D. He's got to step it up a little more.

looking good to start the fourth... just didn't close well. they basically just played hack-a-shaq with out entire team towards the end!

can't help but notice Marcus had 4 assists in only 9 minutes. Would like to see him more
