YES! It's finally here!

Our season starts tonight and with it our intention and commitment to play a different style in earnest. We have the personnel, the desire, and the talent to do it. Putting them together in a redesigned fit is the goal and the challenge. I can't wait to see how we grow this season. Let's get after it!

WHERE: FedExForum, Memphis, TN

WHEN: Wednesday, December 23, 2020, 7pm (CT)

I'll be watching but not too excited by that starting lineup, damn! I just don't understand what they are trying to do.

Guess we will have another lottery pick to look forward too......

Why is Ducler's always wrong or way outdated?

I think he goes by projections and stays with them unless there are changes in time for him to post them. He does it for all the teams (and I think he's in France) so it takes some time and when there are changes are made closer to the game he's already posted them.

Besides that weak-ass layup he missed and not feeding Vassell who was wide open for a corner three, Murray actually looked not useless for about 3 minutes there :)

More of that please....

Speaking of useless - LMA's D. Sags time and again, back pedaling on drive after drive, and then he is so far under the basket that when they happen to miss, their big rolling to the rim get an easy mismatch on the P&R switch for putback 2.

I was just going to write how Lonnie needs to get going on O when he made a thunderous dunk early in the 3rd Q.

KJ and DJ were wonderful.

Devin rough first taste at the pro level - welcome to the NBA, rook!

***LOVE*** the shot distribution in the first half with the young guys leading with the number of shots, nice balance with the vets in scoring.

Keldon and Murray picking up where they left off... Rudy as well. Nice looking 1st half.

Also while quiet tonight, was real impressed with Vassell in the pre-season.

Also I'm glad to see KBDiop made the roster... this team really needed a SF/hybrid forward with some decent size and isn't well over 30, on the team - he fits the bill well enough, and has a bit of seasoning under him with Denver.

Maybe he can stick and develop pretty well.

Longer-term need one morein the the form of a primary-level player, in the future..

Apparently we wanted to draft him but he was selected just before our pick. Funny how things turn out that we get him after all. He sprained his ankle in the first pre-season game, but was a big mobile body out there. Austin Spurs are, I think, participating in the bubble G-League season so I'm looking forward to seeing how he progresses. Agree 100% with your assessment of him.
