Monta looks like he's on fire tonight. Hitting that buzzer beater from just inside Nets' half of the court is a good indicator.

Looks like Klay found his rhythm finally. He's sinking those threes lately.

udoh dissapoints me, getting extended minutes, not rebounding, and getting blocked by the guy who married a universal whore!
other than that seems like both teams just cruising, at least i don't see much defensive energy from our squad.
predict that lee will go off in third, if he stays off fouling early.

p.s. i just wrote that for guybrush not to get lonely :crazy:

I would like to see Udoh develop, but I'm getting more and more convinced that he will be anything more than a bench player.
Both team are lacking on defense. We had a good shooting first half, and they outrebounded us by huge margin. Especially in the second quarter...can't remember when we had last rebound, if it were not for that big difference in steals in our favor, we would be trailing now. 12 rebounds for the half, how pathetic is that?

No need to write if you don't want to, Martin, I just find it more interesting to discuss team's play with some other fan.

steals kept us in, you're right. udoh, yeah, seems to lack reaction, both on offense and defence, and being not so big, really is only good against slow players. sadly.

Lee missing FTs. And, good lord, Humphries looks like a superstar against Warriors. They can't rebound or close the paint.

The worst possible way to finish your final play on offense in the quarter. And, of course, you get punished for that.

would try a lineup of rush, mcguire/udoh wright, biedrins and monta/robinson. both wright and rush were on fire. would want them on the floor and try some running untill middle, 4 minute mark, then put back lee to finish, we'll need his leadership at the end

I agree on those bogus fouls you mentioned. Really questionable...still, we have to win this game even without Lee. Nets are horrible, I just don't know what happened to our rebounding. I know we are bad, or average at best, but tonight, it's like we have 5 PGs on the court all the time.

I would give Klay some more time as well...he was on fire while he was in.
