Well, playing without Tj and Kapono i'm not as confident but i still say we get the win tonight. Dallas has been average of late and Bosh is back.

We'll get revenge for last year where we lost the game after being up 11 in the 2nd half and lost on that pathetic layup by Howard. It was so painful being there. Anyways, the starting lineup is going to have to play big, and 2 of our bench guys as well for us to have a chance. I expect Bargs to have a good game tonight.

According to BC... just heard him on Fan590... I was lazy to write it so I just stole it from RealGM guys...

Quote:
All tests on Ford negative, but he still has some soreness and numbness. A stinger. Did not have the kind of pain in the hand he had before. Will be evaluated by doctors. No timeline for his return. Returned today on a flight that came back via Baltimore to pick up Jorge.

Horford spent a lot of time with him last night, but Ford spent more time consoling him than and other way around.

BC expects TJ to rebound quickly to where he has to be.

Garbo: It's 10 weeks non weight bearing. So therapy, rehab, really begins after the 10 weeks. Not certain of timeframe for return. BC was very careful about his discussing the specifics because of privacy reasons but also because of the insurance reasons. Fibula problem because of a non-union of the fracture site, and that has been addressed. Reports on the other injury that was addressed may not be totally accurate.

Is this career threatening? Can he come back at some point? "I hope he can come back... and be as effective as he was for the Raptors last season."

Can apply for a season ending medical exception which might get us a cap exception... the nuance there is that is not new money found, but would be tacked onto the cap... that would propel us over the tax threshold which we will not do... We're a deep team, the thing we miss from the basketball standpoint are the intangibles Garbajosa brings... others will step in. Right now, we're banged up, if you looked at the report from the trainers, there might be eight guys with issues. AP has a groin problem he's not talking about. Chris finally gets back and has his groin problem so hopefully he's on track.

With Garbo, it's more about replacing the person and the contribution.

Kapono will tape it up and try to play tonight... It's not his shooting hand.

They've got the lead again, let's just see how they do against a team that is a 2nd half team.

WOW ... fantastic effort tonight. Who knew the Mavs would shoot as horrible as they did.

Anyhow, player of the game and a big reason for all those second chances ... Mr. Kris Humphries. I think that was his best professional game. Kudos to him.

fool! a handful of people have been negative towards hump in the past, but the Fancy Lad has always said that if Hump does what he is supposed to, he will be a valuable piece of the puzzle. In the past, Hump has been his worst enemy, but it looks like this year he knows what his role is. Lots of us have been preaching that for a long time.

oh and why in the world would we have gone after Anderson Verajao, when we already have him for $10 million less a year?

Yeah, if we get performances every once in a while like we did from Humps last night, then that 4 year deal he signed just before the season started is a steal. Great energy guy who isn't afraid to bump & grind.
