Winnable game. Glad that Lowry will dress, he's a real competitor.

Big question is how many minutes will Fields get in comparison to AA?

I don't usually blow my own trumpet when it comes to predictions, but Lowry willed us to the victory in OT. Oh and Anderson continues to do a stellar job while Fields had 0 minutes.

Very happy with our first win against a Western Conference team, and on the road no less.

Re: Deadly December - Discussion Thread

That leaves us at 10-20 which is good enough for the 11th seed in the East.

Boston currently sit in the 8th spot with a .500 record. I really think we can at least be challenging for that seed by season end, our schedule has been very tough so far, so hopefully we just continue with all this momentum and we don't see any more skids.

@ Orlando tonight, another winnable game, but back to back road games (especially the first being an OT win) will make it tough. They're without Big Baby and also on a B2B after a loss to the Wizards, so I think we'll take them and improve to 7 of our last 8.

All I can say is I told you guys Ed Davis was still going to be a quality NBA player if he got a chance.

^ Ed got handled in the 3rd by Nicholson.

He's probably starter quality but not 38 minutes a night worth of it.

If he's in your top 3 big men, you can still have a chance to contend. I just think he has a place in this league.

Agreed, he's my second favourite big on this team behind JV.

He doesn't play outside his game, my main annoyance with Amir.

Re: Deadly December - Discussion Thread

The boys played a good game all around.
Quick thoughts:
Fields finally found a way to contribute something on defense ... better than usual and may turn himself around if he can get his shot back.
Lowry was great in stretches but was calling his own number a bit too much in the end. At least he was making his shots but I'm hoping he doesn't get back to his old me-first, I'll carry the load myself attitude.
The team looked good on offense, lots of movement and running without the ball. Gave us better looks and is miles ahead of what we're used to seeing from them in the last couple years where they get down the floor and then look clueless as everyone stands around doing nothing.
Also good to see frustration on the faces of our opponents for a change ;-)
And finally no panic as the lead was trimmed to 11 after being up by 20. They kept their composure and just worked harder. I think that's the best and biggest part of yesterday's lesson. Months ago they would have folded, lost the lead and the game.
So all in all.... Great flippin game with lots of feel good takeaway lessons learned!!
