I do like the Livingston signing. You gotta like our guard set up with Wall, Beal, Crawford, Price and Livingston. I mean that is a solid rotation.

Alot of calling for Seraphin chatter, but Okafor has played well also, and I'm not sure coming off the bench isn't better suited for Seraphin's development where he can play a bit looser and without as much pressure.

The forward spots are the trouble area IMO. Nene coming back would certainly help. Ariza has started to look more comfortable. Booker has been a bit disappointing to me, and Vesely has regressed.

Assuming Wall and Nene still out for the time being, I suppose I'd change things up a bit if only for the sake of change and to shake things up... I'd like to start Livingston at point for his true skill of running at team. With Livingston at point, he needs some shooters to distribute to, I'd like to stick with Beal starting at SG at least for now, move Webster to the starting spot at SF and Singleton at PF, with Seraphin at Center. 2nd unit would therefore be Okafor, Booker, Ariza, Crawford, Price.


I don't think Ves has really regressed as much as the teams transition game has without Wall. Ves is a transition court player. He hasn't developed a good half court game yet. And while I think he will shoot better this year, he isn't going to be the one to develop him outside game while the team has no flow. That isn't Ves. He would be the last one to play hero ball.

With better PG play, the team will play better. They will get out in transition more. Once the game start flowing, Ves will start to show his game again.

This should be there line ups and rotation.

Crawford/Livingston/Price
Webster/Beal/Martin/Price
Trevor A/Singleton/Webster - Singleton should be given a chance with Webster fighting to push in out.
Vesely/Booker/Singleton
Okafor/Kevin/Barron

That's 13

If they do that, they will start the win some games.

Once Wall and Nene return.

This should be there line ups and rotation.

Wall/Livingston
Crawford/Beal/Webster/Martin
Trevor A/Singleton/Webster
Vesely/Nene/Booker/Singleton - start Ves with Nene off the bench until fully healthy.
Okafor/Kevin

That is 13 with

Barron and Price inactive.

Once Nene is healthy, put him at center and move Kevin to back up PF and let him fight it out.

Stop wasting time on Price. He isn't even going to be active once they bring Wall and Nene back. They have wasted way to much time on this marginal player who isn't even a clear back up.

Once healthy, they are going to be a 45% to 50% team.

Kevin needs to show the will be a bull in the post. If not, start looking for a player that will.

They can still move forward from that they have. They will need to evaluate and add the right pieces but they can do it.

They are set at PG finally. They need to resign Livingston.
They have pieces at SG that can work out. Beal is young. Maybe upgrade at the Martin level if needed.
Trevor A is a place holder at SF until they find a true stud. This should be the main focus.
They have pieces at PF and Center but should keep adding with an eye on the future.

It may look like ass right now but it really isn't. Wall and Nene retuning will get them back on course.

The come back line up was

Livingston
Beal
Singleton
Booker
Barron

Imagine that. What a shock. Randy stumbled into one of the line ups that would work.

I haven't watched the past 2 games as closely as I usually do, but I don't recall seeing Webster in either of them. Is he hurt, or has he played his way out of the rotation ??

He hasn't found his place on the team yet. No spacing isn't helping.

Right now his best skill I have seen is hitting a spot up long ball with his feet set. Basically Martin with more heart and slightly better handles. He played some last game but wasn't effective. Once the team settles down, he should be able to find a role as a 3 ball shooting SG maybe SF that can drive with more open lanes and who can get out in transition.

He just isn't good enough to lead a team, but he is good enough to pitch in once the team doesnt have totally F'd up crap rotations.

Might as well go whole-hog with the smallball.

PG: Crawford
SG: Beal
SF: Martin
PF: Webster
C: Singleton

Rebounding? Pff. We'll just jack 3s like Grinnel. (Hey, if we're gonna lose, we might as well have fun with it)

I think Crawford is the only guy on the roster who could put up 100+ shots in a game.

So Wall continues to progress.

Nene game back a few weeks early. Interesting to read how that went down. I just hope he can get that foot well enough to make it through the season so he can take care of it this off season like he should have last off season. Nene really blow it this year by playing in the Olympics instead of getting his foot right. He really screwed over Ted who is paying him 13M to heal during the season when he should have done it over the summer.

Booker had a sprained knee. They already did an MRI and it looks like he will be ok.

Seems I read about them doing more MRIs more quickly then I remember in the past. Thats a good sign. Seems the medical side of the team is getting better. I never understood what there was an MRI done on these injured players more quickly in the past. Hell, if it was me, I would have everyone of them get one once a mouth injured or not just to monitor and catching things early. Scan their feet, ankles and knees.

If Nene is healthy enough to play against the CHA, then they should do it. Go for the win. Then rest him again for SA, POR, NY, and MIA. He could get another two week rest until the ATL game DEC 7th. They aren't going to likely win any of those games anyway. Get a win now and then get him two more weeks rest. By then they will be talking about Walls return.

vs Portland first win at home 11/28/12

Starters

Price
Beal
Trevor A
Kevin
Okafor

Booker and Wall out injured still with Nene rested for one game and ready to play off the bench

The starter dug a quick hole and then leveled off but Beal continues with poor shooting and dribbling. He does D up pretty solid though. I don't think he should be starting at this point. Actually, he should just be a bench player with Crawford, Webster getting the main minutes at SG. Ves is now on the bench and got a DNP which is good for now. He needs a wake up call and Randy is sending him one. Trevor A got off to a great start and shot well last night. Crawford had a really good game off the bench. Webster pitched in well and is becoming a leader in the locker room. Kevin scored and actually rebounded better but still no FTAs. Livingston played well and should be the PG for the 4th quarter.

Team was up 15 and Randy went to

Price
Crawford
Trevor A
Singleton
Kevin

And they got crushed on the boards. Went on a 0-14 run over 6 minutes while Randy changed the line up like five times. Truly terrible.

Finally got it to

Livingston
Crawford
Trevor A
Kevin
Nene

and then finished with

Price
Crawford
Trevor A
Nene
Okafor

Which was just enough to hang on.

Refs are insane. Crawford to Nene and a pick and roll inbound play and Nene gets called for a charge when it wasn't one and then Portland inbounded the ball with .5 second and some how they say Portland caught the ball and called time out in .3 second so .2 remained on the clock. They were then able to inbound the ball and get a shot off in .2 seconds. Yeah. Ok.

Should have been an easier win after they were up 15 in the forth and playing well. Randy really blow the line ups then figured out something good enough to hold onto a 1 pt lead late. Terrible coaching.

From the forth quarter..specially 5 minutes and later.. I think the focus of players should be

Livingston - spot duty for Price early in the 4th but not late
Crawford/Webster
Trevor A/Singleton
Kevin
Nene - spot duty for Okafor/Barron

Those are the 7 main players to get you through the 4th. Once Wall returns it will be a lot easier with Wall or Livingston to choose from to play the entire 4th. They really need to add a 7-0 strong back up center who can score around the basket. Need to find a way to turn Okafor, Booker and maybe Ves into that player.

My 12-yr old was watching it one day and I watched with him. Phineas and Ferb is a really well-written, funny show. I couldn't believe how entertained I was by a "today's" kid show.
Klay Thompson just became my favorite NBA player.

Before the 37-point quarter, weeks back he shut down James Harden.
"God is good." Klay also thanked his father for recognizing his gift (shooting).
Humble, nice young man.

Nene doesn't need to run with Wall. That's what Beal, Crawford, Vesely, Booker, and Singleton are for.

On any given fast break we only really need Wall plus one more guy, and a trailer. We'll have that covered even if Nene never breaks past a jog.
