Because Anderson & Lucas are DC's illegitimate children.

When we want to create mismatches for us instead of creating mismatches for the other team.

It is all gamble time for Casey, calm down. He only needs 3 players for that in the 4th quarter. The other ones don't matter.

The real question is when will we lobby for a real head coach like SVG?

Val's per36 must be crazy good for a rookie C.

You know what's ridiculous? Even knowing that he won't play much in the second half, Casey still takes him out with 3 fouls in the second quarter. It happened against Memphis most recently. It's stupid to expect a guy to pick up fouls at consistent rate in the first place (all coaches seem to do it anyway); to expect him to pick up fouls at a much higher rate in the 6 minutes he plays in the second half is just absurd. You think he's going to pick up 3 fouls in 6 minutes and you are trying to preserve as many fouls as possible because it's so important to have him on the floor for his entire shift? What the hell, Casey? Are you a f ucking moron?

The whole idea of "foul trouble" is insane, anyway. If you can't afford to have a guy foul out, why can you so easily afford him missing several minutes of play earlier in the game as if fouling out with a lower minute total would be a foregone conclusion if he isn't benched? Are you trying to maximize good players' time on the floor or not? If not, keep taking them out when they're in "foul trouble" and have them playing 8 fewer minutes so that they can finish the game with 3 or 4 fouls.

What Casey's been doing with Valanciunas is significantly less sensible than that.

I like JVs development. I think as we get closer to end of the season he will be getting PT in the 4th. He is fighting hard on D and rebounding well. In a year or two he will be a very solid double double threat everynight.

Jonas had a great game. I was surprised when Chandler came back in they left Anderson in. Jonas has Chandler's number.
