Re: Next 9 - Upping the Pace

I liked pretty much everything I saw in the 1st quarter, especially from Bargnani and Valanciunas.

Re: Next 9 - Upping the Pace

Enjoyable first half. Ed Davis really put in some great work, and that was rewarded with some lucky falls off ill advised shots.

Re: Next 9 - Upping the Pace

The heart has been outstanding today. I'm fearing a 4th quarter meltdown, especially against a team as poised as the Spurs, but I'm ever the optimist so will be cheering hard regardless.

By the way, DeMar is that guy. Total star.

Re: Next 9 - Upping the Pace

What a totally wicked game !!! Fantastic effort from everyone!!
DeMar making us all (ok me and a few others) happily eating our words on consistency and effort. Amazing play and tough grit!!
Breakout game for JV too! Against Tim Duncan no less. This is a strong development game he can always look back on. A lot more confidence around the rim for him and the team finally getting him the ball down low. Things can only get better for him from here.
Also noticed that Casey has come up with a very effective rotation with Lowry and Calderon playing the 1+2 ... AND !! The best thing I liked was NOT having that chucker Lucas on the floor! Phewwww. Totally not liking his play of late.
Great effort from the team, given the expected loss .... I think we came out of this with more positives than anything else!!
Hey it coulda (probably shoulda) been a total blowout !!!

Great great game !!!

Re: Next 9 - Upping the Pace

This should be a good game tonight!! Even though we're the third worst team in the league right now we still have some positives to look forward to. Did everyone notice by the way how the Spurs stomped all over the Wizards last night? Despite what our stats say we held the Spurs close all game and they got no where close to a major routing like the Wiz game. And that was during a back to back game coming off of a double overtime win. So the Spirs weren't even fresh! HA!! That says a lot about our team.
Looking forward to tonight's effort. The boys better not shame me now ....

I'm expecting us to kick the Rockets ass. The boys need it. Another loss here and we lose all the positive momentum we made during the Spurs game.

I hope we don't see a lot of Lowry and Calderon on the floor at the same time, Harden will abuse either one if it does happen.

Jonas should have a nice time against Asik, providing he gets the touches.

Re: Next 9 - Upping the Pace

I didn't want to say it .... But let's just say I'm hoping for a win too. I actually loony mind seeing Lowry and Calderon together. Calderon is a good shooter (not last game though) but he's a pass first guard and rarely calls his own number. With Lowry there and him playing the 2 he actually takes more shots. And it gives us two really good ball handlers on the floor at the same time with different styles so depending on who takes the ball up court the defense has to react differently and that could open our boys up for some easy opportunities.
Look for JV to be getting more and more touches as we go forward. The boys have finally started using and trusting him more in the last two games. And with what he was able to do against Duncan I wouldn't be surprised if we start running plays for him within the next four to five games. I've been looking for this for quite a while now so yeah I've got my fingers crossed on this too... ;-)

^ Indeed.

One positive? Terrence Ross with the breakout performance including some huge dunks.
