They gave Boston a good game. There's a lot of young players busting their butt to land on teams (see Stephan Graham). Dont expect these teams to lay down and die.

Not very optimistic now even tho its the Bobcats minus Gerald Wallace.

This team has serious pride and emotion issues - in that none of them have it

Put Brezec in!! I dont know how much he would have helped them last game but I'd prefer his energy to the listless and uninspired effort we saw last night.

Some teams play better when they lose their best player as they're inspired to show what they can do. This team doesn't seem to be one of them.

sorry if this all sounds negative, but got a Raptors hangover this AM.

We usually come out hard after a bad loss and blow the team out, so I'm not too worried (though on the pessimistic side, we are kind of due to come out after a bad loss and play a second straight bad game. I don't think that's happened once this year)

I have Primoz going 25-15 against his old team.

That depends , of course, if Smitch realizes he's chomping on the bit and ready to play and doesnt leave him on the bench.

Sams rotations makes baby jesus cry.

If Bosh went 0-4 do you think he would have given him the hook for the rest of the half?

Kapono
Delfino
Joey
Hump
T.J

Is this pre-season?

Yeah seriously, this is so wrong. Hey Sam, if going small means playing Kapono, Graham, and Hump as our frontcourt... DON'T PLAY SMALL!!! Lol shit.

The Bargs 2 foul policy is really grating. Come-on now. I usually defend Sam, but this is just awful.

We have to be the team that goes the fastest from playing amazing to sucking.

TJ has played way too minutes tonight - he didn't deserve 9. Frankly, I would play Calderon 40 minutes tonight if that's what it takes, it's probably our last winnable game for a while ...

2 fouls for Andreea - Leo is an idiot and doesn't know what he's talking about. He made it sound like Sam took Andreea because he wasn't playing well - but he had 2 fouls. Probably a good idea in a game like this, since he will have to play the whole game.

I'm also becoming more and more convinced that the Jose starting Ford backup plan really isn't working.

The comparison of the Lakers-Dallas game and this is shocking

It's the equivalent of changing from the Toronto Leafs to the St. Johns team playing someone. And the Toronto Leafs suck balls.
