we had 2 bad games against a team who was dead tired and a team who needed overtime 2 days ago to beat Miami. We won both of them, and now suddenly optimism is everywhere ... TJ sucked in both these games, he is trying to play like Jos enow, in control, which basically denies the only advantage he has over Jose. Defensively, Sma had to pull him off Billups after 4 minutes in the first quarter, and on Crawford tonight he was equally bad, especially in the first half.
Are you levelling here or what? If you arent, sorry, but youre fucking stupid.

We'll see the true face of this "new" team tomorrow, against a very motivated NOK team (even though they will be tired after a long road trip). I'm looking forward on TJ's defense on Chris Paul, and how will he handle it if Paul starts to dominate (pretty good chance of that happening). It will be interesting ....
Its not the opposing PG's spot to be guarding CP3, its whoever is guarding the big who is setting the screen+the corner guys near the ball. You probably will never see CP3 trying to beat either of our pgs off the dribble all game. Hes gonna slice and dice with the dribble until theres an advantage where the defence sags off a guy or just doesnt get close enough on him and thus the open shot. We gotta be really quick on rotations tomorrow or we're fucked.
