Normally, I wouldn't say anything... but seeing as the Jazz kept getting ticky-tack ****, it kinda needs to be said.

None of the Warriors played well... but the ref's were terrible, too.

like I said the wariors got no respect in the nba that why i think the warriors dont get the call they want

But it is so much more glaringly obvious now...the combination of Ike's injuries and the 12-6 start masked it somewhat last year for a while. Also, Monta didn't really shine til late in the season. This year, you could be Stevie Wonder and see it. Question is, since Nelson proclaimed Dun and Murphy his starters, is there a saving face issue? I doubt it - the cat wants to win.

Wouldn't have helped much. The more free throws we have, the more we miss...

Also, statistically (and I haven't seen this game yet, so I can only talk from the boxscore), the Jazz were called more fouls than us (25 to 19)... seems like they just wanted to win more.

I said the Jazz were built to win and as long as they are healthy, they have a team that could be top 4 in the West, top 7 at least

From the few games they have played, it certainly looks like that. We'll see, tho. Most of his players have problems staying healthy all season...

The thing is, the Jazz won't stay healthy.

When they're all completely put together right, they can go like hell. But so can Grant Hill.

Not surprising...I am most curious to see how long Nelson sticks with Dunleavy and Murphy, when Ike and Monta are clearly more talented pieces. Essentially, the team is unchanged since last year, so we will have an excellent petri dish to see how much was on Monty and how much is just the team. 3 games is way too early - though not too early to confirm that Ike and Monta should have more minutes and Dunleavy/Murphy less.


Truthfully I kinda thought we'd able to take the Kobe-less Lakers too.

I know what you are saying, and with the right line-up we would have beaten the no-Kobe Lake Show. But I am quite convinced that Dunleavy should be coming off the bench, as should Murphy. They are really hurting this team with their play and Nelson will have to, in effect, very publicly admit he misjudged if he is going to change the starters. I hope and think he will, just hope it is sooner rather than later...

Murphy deserves to start, since Biedrins can't stay out of foul trouble (and needs limited minutes).

Start Murphy and Ike in the front court... and bench Dunleavy.

Murphy did horrible last game! Biedrins is tougher, more athletic and more energetic than Murphy. He plays defense and that alone makes him more valuable right now

hate to be the wet blanket, but starting biedrins won't get murphy on the bench - the projected starting line-up is bd, jrich, dung, murphy and biedrins - change out monta and ike and you've got something - bd, monta, jrich, ike, biedrins
