Starting Lineup:

ANT / Powell / Little / Nance / Nurkic

I have a strong feeling we win this game.

Team looks much better when somewhat healthy. Imagine adding in a healthy CJ and Dame.

I think Nurkic and Nance should be split as much as possible: Similar strengths and weaknesses. Plus, we are obviously lacking in quality bigs.

Both Nance and Nurkic playing like crap, with the exception of a nice offensive spurt from Nurk. Everyone one else is dialed in.

I've been obsessing, imagining adding a healthy CJ, Simmons and Drummond to what we are seeing tonight. Have been for a while now.

Dame's tummy is acting up again. Very unfortunate, but I'm not surprised. Dame made a good choice, clearly wanted no part of getting lit up by Trae. Better to sit and watch him do it to your teammates.

Nance is absolutely killing us tonight. Play anyone else!

Best game of the year, and there's nothing but crickets... weird. So happy for Simons..................... OMG!!! He lost his grandpa yesterday, and dedicated this game to him. :sad:

Simons looked amazing…. Sorry for his loss. At only 22, he could easily start for a number of teams. He’s gonna get paid this summer.

Its only one game but let's see if Simon's situation is similar to what happened to GTJ last year.

Dame is better but given our trajectory might make sense to get a rebuild package for dame and retain simons for our rebuild if he keeps up high level production? After tonight i think it’s simons, not gary, who we’d be cursing losing for years

Wow, I had to watch this one with the Hawks announcers they were god awful. I swear it feels like the announcer crews are getting worse and worse, these guys can barely offer insight on their own players and teams, I think the average poster here would do a better job at giving some real insight.

Anyways, great game by Simons and Nurkic did a lot of good work in the 4th, nice to see this team not put their heads down even when the Hawks took a lead.

Defense still needs a lot of work though.

I dont get the obsession with Simmons and Drummond.

Ben is a socialite who would HATE the city.
Drummond is a vet min plodder.
