We are now in 8th place in the east and 2.5 games out of 5th with a schedule that mostly favors us in December. Gotta love the Crazy Eastern Conference.

Let's hope we're turning this ship around at just the right time. This season is such a rollercoaster ride so far.

Chicago's not a great offensive team by any means but we absolutely dominated them on defense and made it clear who the better team was, which is what this team has failed to do up to this point.

If we keep playing this kind of defense we'll be going into Atlanta with a 4-game win streak and a very good chance at giving the Hawks a run for their money.

Oh, and get DeRozan more touches!!

I agree 100%. He gives us scoring energy in the first quarter that gets us going really well. HIm and Caldy are getting good together with Caldy having atleast one assist per game by giving DD an alley-oop

I can't wait for the Atlanta game.
Hopefully we squash them like they squashed us on their homecourt.

DeRozan is like Bosh, getting to the bucket and drawing a foul

DeRozan is a much better finisher than Bosh was in his rookie year and he's getting to the line more. Once he adds some bulk to his frame he'll be scary good around the basket.

I was happy with our record through the 1st 12 games since most of us predicted we'd be 3-9 or 4-8. But those 5 straight loses really hurt us. I still think we can make a comeback and we are playing a lot better as of late.

im not that looking forward to the atlanta game, we made a fool of ourselves that game, they just played the way they are suppose to. On the other hand i am excited about the next time we play again boston, i wish some one on our team will put pierce on his ass!!!!! and than point at Bosh and say "Thats for you"!!!!!

we haven't been that bad, the problem is when we're bad, we truly stink ...
which is why I'm very cautious about these two wins - we've been good before this season.

Miami's not that great, we beat them once already.

That's not going to happen (squashing them); I will be happy if we can squeak out a win.

I didn't get to see the Chicago game, but something that impressed me in the Wizards game, besides the win, was that our guys were not helping their guys up after hard fouls. Starting to show some 'tude hopefully.
