I'm pretty sure we're keeping Jelly because he wanted a second 10 day contract, right? (He would come over for a 20 day guarantee?)



You are saying this after one game. Rubio had a good game his first outing too.. We aren't very good and being held together by rubber bands and tape.

Rubio was coming off major knee surgery. Both these guys have been in game shape, playing in their respective leagues

i think the underlying factor here is the fact that rubio plays well with shooters and athletic bigs who can cut to the basket.

1/23 vs Brooklyn (24-16) L - giving up too large of a talent gap
1/25 at Washington (8-30) W - nervous because of Nene/Okafor vs. Williams/Stiemsma though
1/26 at Charlotte (10-30) L - no depth on the second game of a b2b
1/30 vs Clippers L - Might get Pek/Shved back but won't be enough
2/1 vs Lakers L - only advantage is at SF, Gasol will likely be back
2/2 vs Hornicans W - maybe we don't play an 18-point lead and lose by 12?
2/4 vs Blazers L - Should be a good game but they are healthy and we aren't.
2/6 vs Spurs L - Spurs are too good and we are too depleted.
2/8 vs Knicks (25-13) L - no explanation necessary.

I like how our "easy" games are on the road and our "hard" games are at home. :-?

I see us going 2-8 - guess I'm not very optimistic. But I'd say our range is 1 to 4 wins.


2-1. Should've gone with my gut a predicted a L. :-?
