4-2 now. Solid effort from Noah... Nate Robinson gave us some scoring but damn is he a frustrating player to watch... takes bad shots (but can heat up in a hurry), seems like he's going to create for others but makes passes more difficult than they should be. Boozer was terrible. Gibson was solid defensively. Some nice shooting for Bellineli and Hamilton... Hinrich left with a strained hip which gave Marques Teague some court time to spell Robinson. He looked like a rookie in over his head but I think he has some promise down the road. Deng quietly led the team with a +12 +/-

One of these days my off days are going to line up with gamedays so I can actually catch 'em online. Glad we were able to grab another win. Not going to be a pretty season while Roseless, but .500ish should be doable.

Any win is a good win until Derrick comes assured, it will rarely be pretty, but it is the only way to grab W's.

Nice to Belinelli step it up in key moments. That's the guy I was hoping for when we signed him.

Noah continues to beast, great to see as always.

After 2 good games to start the year, this is 4th game in a row where Boozer can't hit the broad side of a barn offensively. He is still rebounding and passing well, but what we really need is efficient scoring. I am hoping Thibs makes the adjustments necessary to get him going.
