Breakdown of the game (and of almost every game this year): We were good, and were winning. Then, we started sucking, and lost.

From the Post game: Nelson called Smart his "defensive coordinator'' and Moncrief the "assistant defensive coordinator.''

Crawford said players had not been told about the changes.

"This is the first I've heard of it,'' Crawford said. "I hope it works. ... We need to get better.''

Where can I download the game? Stupid CSN doesn't offer Warrior games on OnDemand anymore.

Sounds like we played well in stretches, mostly because S-Jax and Mags werent there.

Im reserving my glee at Brandan playing and playing well (as usual) until the next game............to see whether he gets a DNP or less than 10 minutes.

Question though, why is that Marco has one good stretch against the Thunder, then he plays 25 minutes against Milwaukee, plays well, now he is a starter, playing 35+ minutes a night?...............why is that when a guard does one thing or one game well, he then turns into a serious rotation player/starter but if Brandan or Randolph do good things.................they are benched and not encouraged to carry it on in the next game.

We will see.

Because Randolph and Wright are not 3pt shooters. There's a reason Kurz got to stay on while Hendrix was waived.

I am convinced it is because they want to use him as a part of a package to make a deal. Being a PG he has some value there and being an expirer he has even more value. He might just be the small extra incentive needed to move one of our redundant veterans.

I see no other reason to keep him over Hendrix when you already have 3 other PG's on the roster (Crawford, Nelson, and CJ) and another guard returning in Monta

Did I hear Fitz and Barnett say we are the top shot blocking team in the league? also that we are second in scoring?? :shock: :shock:

just get some decent defense and we'll be winning games....

I liked a lot of what I saw last night, go Marco and BWright!! Maybe Nelson is starting to listen to reason. Yet Crawford remained while shooting poorly. Wish we would have seen more Randolph. The whole game plan seems to go astray in the second half.

Yep, and apart from Beans............not one of our other shotblockers plays more than 17 minutes a night, with 2 of them not even guarenteed of getting into the game at all.

Thing is though, I think the only reason we get so many blocks is because most of guards get blown by so easily, and then its all rotational shot blocking, not good defense/man on man shot blocking.
