Good Win, we matched up well with them- Have to remember though they did not have Tyson Chandler.

Ugly. but I'll take it!

Interesting how the one thing that saved it for them tonight, defense, is the thing they suck at most. Great job on that tip!
Good thing Magette stayed patient and found his shot.
I loved the line up with Ronny and Andris out there. It was working for a minute. :D

I think we've always known that when they play defense they almost always win. Their defense sparks their fast break and their offense overall. It's kind of sad that they can't figure out how to play D consistently.

What are they doing! They win on the road!

Still, prefer a top 5 pick :wink:

It's all Maggette's fault. Monta tried real hard to keep the tanking going with those two late fouls, but Mags f-ed it up.

Garnett was right, Maggette is all about his stats! He never thinks of the team!

hell yes, i was wrong, we won... i gave them no chance of winning it. That was even before seeing West even played.

Oh and monta's foul in the end... is monta getting stupid. Since his return, he has been so different. Hanging with Jax too much maybe? I know the foul wouldnt have cost us anything as we were up with 7 but cmon, what an idiot.

That is, along with a game at oracle against Utah towards the end of 2007, the best defense I have seen a Don Nelson team play. And as opposed to the type of D they employed that year and last, it was not based on steals so much as just smashmouth, grind it out, get in your man's grill D. I also will say what jackattack did. I liked the line-up with Turiaf and Biedrins out there. All of a sudden they looked like a team that could actually rebound. Also, LOVED the way Monta shut down Stojakovic. Jackson is driving me nuts, though. Way too much forcing of shots and one on one, and he ain't no Lebron James...enough with the bonehead turnovers, too. Still, they are one James shot from being 3-1 since Monta's return, so it is cool to watch. Also, nice to see them win a game where no one really had it going on. They beat the hornets at the hornets game, and I cannot remember the last time the Ws won a slow, ugly, Pacers-Pistons style game. Amazing to see.

But Tyson Chandler would have had more impact on the game

AM not sure Wright would have played much.

They did not have a real big man down low to help West, so Turiaf handled business.
