that's what depth can do for your team
if one guy is cold you can go with the other
Alston+Head+Brooks+Wells backcourt rotation had been working really well
last time it was Brooks
tonight is Head

Luckily our defense and rebounding was sharp tonight along with Luther from beyond the arc because 21 turnovers on the road is unacceptable.

GREAT WIN!
I am proud , now lets not waste this and beta the Knicks , hopefully T-Mac is back against the Wolves and we will blow them off.
Then we have some tests in NO , Sa , Utah , GS.
Lets see what this team can do.

Man Wood was a superstar in this game, reminded me a bit of Bynum.

But the Wizards blow.

praise to Battier for doing a good job defending Butler
Butler had a great game last time when he played against Gay
i'm still favoring Gay
'cause Gay also had a great game that night
so they both basically cancel each other out

Good win, we played great tonight, the defense was also excellent. I think we need to limit our turnovers.
