We still suck.

Sorry, we still need to be cynical to turn thngs around and not let these 2 wins cloud whats really happening.

But yes, lets enjoy it for the next couple of days, and look forward to the days where we win consistently. If GSW can turn it around so can we.

Funny how Bargnani's injury is the reason we sucked last year and now after 2-1 against hungover teams at home, he's the worst thing ever.

Ed Davis in the starting lineup is so much better. He moves without the ball, rolls to the rim. A lot better than a PF sitting at the 3pt line like a lump.

I think Lowry being out is having a bigger impact than Bargnani's absense..

The PG is the backbone of the team, the leader, he's in charge of running the team. When you have a guy who looks for his own shot and gambles on defence, that type of play eventually spreads throughout the team and it becomes chuck city, with each player trying to get his own.

With Calderon, he's looking to set up his teammates at all times, and his shot is only "if necessary" like in a deep shot clock situation. His play spreads through the rest of the team, and players give up shots looking to set up teammates.

Ed Davis has shined, and his offense is really improved. I think he's probably good enough to start, so either Bargnani is 6th man when he comes back, has an extremely short leash as a starter splitting even minutes with Ed, or you ship him for some needed depth or a SF. I don't think Pietrus is the answer as a starter.

Colangelo should apologize to Jose for trying to trade him and try to resign him in the offseason

This...lol. This fan base are blind flip floppers. Remember the past 7 years of mediocrity with Jose. Lowry may not be the best PG in the league but he's DEFINITELY an overall improvement. And he's a change for once.

After 7 great years of Jose's service...WE NEED CHANGE!

Ship Jose and Bargs.

I would wait to see Lowry back before giving up on him. Calderon is expiring, if we trade Lowry now, what happens when the spaniard is gone?

I do like Calderon, but I've also seen people complaining about the Raptors never trading players while their value is up. So, after two very good game from him maybe it's the best time to make a deal before he walks for free?

Great to see this version of the raps again.... Hard working and focused defensively...
AA and a maturing rookie Ross is bringing something new and needed...
I still blame much of our problems with Casey not holding people accountable and his game management... Out coached

Thank you Jose for exposing Lowry's failures to run a team-oriented offense.

Bargnani's better games this year have come when Calderon was starting. Calderons been here longer, he know's his teammates tendencies and sweet spots, and is always looking to find his teammates. I remember people were discussing chemistry issues between Bargnani and Lowry. The chemistry issues spread way further than just those 2.

Ed Davis, Ross, Val etc.. all put up better numbers when Calderon is the starting point guard.

You can't deny it either, Lowry was called out during the team meeting (along with Bargnani) for being too selfish.
