I'm almost on the start Richards bandwagon

Let Plumlee do his wannabe point center thing with the bench while Richards helps the main unit with the boards.

Might as well get going with it because if playoffs are the goal Plumlee is unplayable. Teams will legitimately go hack a plum on him

Cole Anthony is having a very good year so far.

Will be at this one in the flesh. Going with a couple of loud, aging, basketball-ignorant, English football hooligans so doubtful I'll get to focus on the game. I'm definitely in the camp that would rather watch a game at home than live as the court action can get lost in t-shirt cannons and kiss cams. Anywho - will be fun. Thursday morning will not.

At least we won't have to worry about Cole Anthony, he is out for tomorrow night's game

Orlando's been reeling. At one point they were down by 51 points against the Bucks last night. Would be nice to actually blow out a team for once. I want to see some Bouknight action and not just for like the final 30 seconds... I'm talking like the entire fourth quarter

I feel like we're going to lose one of these next three 'easy' games and everyone will freak out about how we're doomed. I don't think it's going to be this one though now that Anthony is out.

Need these next 3 bad. In a week or 2 there's a 5 game stretch of Chicago Milwaukee Atlanta Philly and Philly again. Brutal

Cole is very similar to Kemba Walker

We should win this one with him out

Absolutely. And by mid-December we get another west coast trip that is probably going to be tougher than the first one. @Dallas, @Phoenix, @Utah, @Denver will all be rough.

Given the difficulty of our schedule I think the team has done really well to be in 5th currently. If we're still in the top 6 by Christmas the league is going to take notice.

Surely the second half of our schedule will be a cake walk given how ridiculous the first half has been.

At Amway for early warmups - just watched Mason air ball a free throw next to what I imagine is a shooting coach,

I would not be shocked if PJ starts once 100% healthy.
