Hopefully. You know, rather than punt on another game.

Good game, mates. Very competitive, especially with your injury list. Also: Very good commentators. Good listen.

I can't wait until we are healthy. They totally took advantage of our main guys being out. Take advantage of Ridnour's defense or whatever you can consider it. Hustle and get rebounds. Be physical in the post. We really missed our guys tonight. Pekovic was really really missed tonight.

We gave up 17 offensive rebounds to the Warriors. We also limited them to only two three points, but that wasn't necessarily a good thing seeing as we gave up so many points in the paint.

Hey, at least nobody got hurt this game.

so we're about a .500 team w/ Love/Rubio and about a .500 team w/ AK/Shved...looks like we're set to go undefeated once this team gets healthy

Looking forward to Pek and JJ coming back next week. These gutsy rallies are fun and all but I'm getting tired of the third stringers getting major minutes.

An Wochenende probiere ich es ab und an. Bin aber froh, wenn sie auswärts spielen. ;)

Well, we definitely can't have both Pek and Love out cause apparently thats where all of our rebounds and paint points come from. Second chance points and piss poor defense is definitely what did us in

I'd also love to never see Ridnour again. I'd rather have Malcom Lee on the floor than Ridnour since at least he plays good defense. All Ridnour can do now is shoot jumpers. He is terrible at everything else

The good: Another close (closer than the final score at least) loss despite all of the injuries, Williams showed up, and Shved continues to look like a legit NBA player

The bad: A loss is a loss, and despite his size and talent as a shotblocker, Stiemsma is a terrible rebounder

The Ugly: Luke Ridnour - If his shot isn't on target, he's a huge net negative out there, and his shot has been off all season.

I was not able to watch the game today but this does not surprise me. Most overrated player in the NBA.

Nearly everyone I know thinks he is a decent NBA point guard. They don't think he is a good starting point guard but most beleive him to be amongst the better backups.

They are wrong.

He is worthless in 90% of games he plays in. the other 10% he is very valuable due to the fact his shot is falling at an incredibly high rate for that game.

I just don't expect wins with the roster we've got atm. The five day break comes at a great time though, Pek, Roy and JJ could have all played tonight if it was a playoff game I'd say. They'll be nice and fresh for our next game.

Nice games from D-Will, Shved and AK.
