I saw a team playing before Artest went out, too. Remember, aside from what was/is going on offensively, there's another side of the court and Ron contributes real well there, also. We're 4-10 without Ron this season.
Now, last season? Well, that was different, and involved some other factors. Bibby being a main part of it, for the most part. Musselman, as well with a few things.
Anyway, satisfied to get this game, and a decent win at that, considering everything. The game as a whole, definitely impressed. I thought we'd come up short by like 5-7 points.
Thought Orlando would make a run in the 4th, but not quite that much, some too many, TOs, also. I agree with Reggie that some of is fatigue to an extent, as well as unfamiliarity.
Was a bit worried late there, but they managed to hold on and make enough plays. I couldn't quite see this one being choked away like with Denver.
Got nice games from several guys - especially good to see Douby step up again.
Garcia's play to the push that ball down the court was excellent, just smart. Almost immediately reminded me of Eric Snow doing it to win G5 against Detroit in 2006.
