two of the youngest teams in the NBA... I'm actually excited for this one. Hopefully Randolph will play and Maggette will come off the bench.

I wonder how Oden will play this game. He played really well last time. oden is one of the few guys around the NBA on other teams that i root for.

Buike should be on the bench. Maggette should be either SF or 6th man. But since he's back healthy, he'll probably start. So move Azu to the bench and start Randolph. Obviously, that's not going to happen with Nelson.

Biedrins
Randolph
Maggette
Belinelli
Crawford

If that line up does start the game, I'd assume Randolph would be taken out around 4 minutes left in the first and not come in for a long time.

we will get killed on the boards, especially in the 4th quarter. i don't think the mags gimmick against aldridge will work this time.
to bad wright can't guard him.. how long will he be out?

He's getting an MRI later today (Thursday). I would guess three to four weeks but I'm not a doctor and I don't know the extent of the injury.

Come on, its gonna be Maggs on Aldridge and the rest of their giants the whole way!

If Randolph doesnt play ATLEAST! 20 minutes!.............I swear.

Ohh no, actually, Nelson will probably start Kurz and use Davidson alot instead. :roll:

I'd be happy if Davidson and Randolph got significant minutes. Without Wright... we NEED to develop more big guys.

Hell I wouldn't even mind seeing Kurz play some. No more small ball Nellie... do you want Oden to destroy us like we usually get destroyed by any decent big man?

Hopefully Turiaf gets some minutes WITH AB on the court too.

Maggette won't play tonight as he's attending a funeral. Either Nellie going to go real small or use Randolph or Davidson a lot more.

Wow, no Maggs now..............people, its time to see what Randolph can really do when hes not threatened with being yanked at any moment.

Please god let him break out and then have a Marco esque awakeing, followed by a streak of starts and minutes. [-o<

Go right to the main front page (ie: click the banner to be on the start screen) and scroll right down the bottom, underneath where it tells you whos online..........and there is = [Click to join chat]. :wink:

Its really great actually, weve only started doing that the last month or so, after all these years of it being completely ignored.

Enjoy!
