This was 80% on Baby.

Didn't box out, didn't guard Amir at all. Took 16 seconds off the clock on one possession only TO DRIBBLE LIKE A POINT GUARD and get blocked by ANDREA BARGNANI.

Trade this clown.

Also, we switch and show on almost every possession because apparently we can't play man to man without double teaming? Or so I think, we don't even get to see.

I just wish he'd shoot less, and the other players take the shots he's taking. It's painful to look at the box score and see him leading the way in FGA.

On the bright side...+8 with Drew on the floor. Slowly but surely we need to get Davis out. Also really need to start playing Kyle. The only guy who can block a shot around the basket on this team.

Am i the only one more comfortable with Nicholson trying to get us a bucket than Baby? Nicholson just seems smarter offensively than Baby is. I just wished Baby gave consistent effort on the defensive end because he's known for his hustle but it's like a switch he turns on and off

Could be trying to raise the value of certain players.

No you aren't the only one. Nicholson is WAY better than him offensively, Nicholson is probably the best offensive player on the team. He needs more minutes.

I trust coach for the most part but we need to get him in the game more and go to him more. He's just a smarter player he's not going to force it if he doesn't have it and with him i have only seen him shoot a few bad shots but those few bad shots was only when he shot it too quickly. He always seems to use what the defense gives him, if they're giving him the shot he'll take it if not then he'll drive it but he will make a pass when he should.

I like high Basketball IQ guys and that's why i like the prospect of Redick and Nicholson playing together because they're both High IQ guys and i think a Nicholson/JJ two man game would be better than a Baby/JJ two man game

third straight game of nicholson leading the team in +/-

i dunno how much to read into that tho, in this game he was really inefficient. missed his first 5 or so shots. and he was getting burned on the pick n roll. his +/- had more to do with his minutes coming when bargnani was on the bench.

i don't have a problem when bbd gets the ball right by the rim. i trust him to be able to barrel through people and muscle up a good shot. but as far as catching it from 20 ft and facing up, i'd prefer to see nicholson doing it.

When is Harrington back? Supposed to be about now right? He should take away the minutes that McAhole is getting and give some production there.

Nicholson: 15 minutes/8 points/3 rebounds

Vaughn is a smart guy, I gotta believe hes been ordered to play those players for trade purposes, at least i hope, because they shouldn't be playing

This game showed just how important JJ is to this team. It's as noticeable as when we were without Nelson, if not more. We need both of those guys to compete even with the bad teams... otherwise there are too many moments of stagnated offense.

Lots of selfish and inconsistent play from multiple guys tonight. Big Baby had his bad moments, but it doesn't make sense to place the majority of the blame on him when our team as a whole looked like garbage. At least he put up a double double and had a better FG% than the rest of the squad, against much taller players, too. I can't believe he was the only starter to make a shot in the 2nd quarter (same for the 4th except for one bucket by Niko). Surprised Vucevic only had 6 rebounds, he's better than that. Afflalo sometimes looks like that guy who could score 20 every night, but he also disappears and as someone else said earlier he makes his shots much harder than they should be by crossing over, spinning and fading away on nobody. What is he trying to prove? Don't complicate it, aflac. He scored 9pts in the first quarter and didn't make a fg the rest of the way. That's not good enough from the guy who is supposed to be the best piece in the dwight trade. Can't really put much blame on Nelson either. He's still looking for his shot this season and hasn't had enough games to find it (27% fg). I'm just glad to see a lot of assists from him again, 9 this time. I'm convinced JOCK is being forced to play McBob for future trade purposes. Tired of seeing him make boneheaded plays and miss the gimmes. Nicholson's defense is suspect, but he should be playing at least 20 minutes as a backup. I wonder what JV will do with the F/C rotation once Harrington comes back...

I'll expect more from this team when Redick is back, also Hedo.

I dont know, when Amir Johnson is hitting 3 pointers in th 4th quarter its not gonna be our night.

Its no big deal, we played hard, yet stupid. If we win awesome, if we lose it get us more ping pong balls.
