Sure is funny what happens when your best scorer is actually allowed to take some shots.

Mark Blount attempts to throw an outlet pass, but Ricky Davis cannot handle it. I like that we're trying to initiate a fast-break offense, but Blount is the wrong player to throw these passes with Kendrick Perkins in the game (who just had a good offensive rebound and subsequently, a Tommy Point).

Justin Reed is sure having a game, isn't he? Ready for the starting lineup as some of you suggested?

Annnd 4 of our 5 players currently in the game have...0 points.

I wouldn't mind Justin Reed in the starting lineup with Ricky Davis playing 34+ minutes off the bench. Reed add some defensive toughness and can score if necessary. He reminds me of a lesser Shane Battier as he can rebound very well.

Dickau - Greene - Pierce - Gomes - Perkins.

In theory, the lineup is decent. Gomes can blitz Dickau's opposing point guard and Perkins can cover for Gomes with Aaron Williams in the game. I like Greene's defense against Morris Peterson and Paul Pierce can guard and score on Joey Graham.

I'm sorry but Kendrick Perkins needs more minutes. This guy is a monster on the class.

Perkins has demonstrated his excellent rebounding ability since last year, though he doesn't do much more than play average to good defense, which is offsetted by the amount of fouls he gets called on.

You can't really expect much from him, the coaching staff doesn't want him doing anything else. I truely believe that they're not being fair to him. A couple of weeks ago Danny said how they only expect defense and rebounding from him...this guy has got four shots on the season so far. Every other big man of ours gets some sort of offense, but Perkins does not.

Blount and Raef get their open looks. Veal gets his 3s and can somewhat take it inside. Jefferson is given the ball in the post to score. Perk on the other hand is just there to set picks and, at times, shoot the ball with just seconds left.

Doc thinks as long as Ricky or Pierce are out there nothing can possibly go wrong.
