    I am truly shocked .. wonder if we can spot the Magic a 30 point 1st qtr lead to outdo our awesome starts yesterday ... I would love to say we are going to win this (handily), but I just can’t trust this team much after the last 3 nightmares.

    This will probably be a win because of Westbrook.

    Didn't have a good feeling before the Hornets game. Thought it was a 40/60 in favor of them, Rockets on the road. Which was why in clippers post game I posted that we may not have hit the bottom yet.

    There were little things I saw in the Hornets game that was encouraging. Russ is back also, I think we have a good chance tonight.

    should be an easy win vs the perpetually disappointing Orlando Magics

    You think?

    Nothing is given is at this point. Never thought we would see a 0-20 opening against the Hornets.

    What most people thought before our losses this year to Golden State, NYK, Detroit, Charlotte and then well... (in a lesser way) Brooklyn, Sacramento, PHX, Portland, San Antonio, and New Orleans as well. :(

    Ego needs to come back about 3 games before the playoffs. Let the dude heal. This back and forth bullshit is old

    Magic is a tricky team so we can NOT take them for granted.

    Vuceive is having another good year and he is a very good passer. I see them dumping the ball to him inside and he kicking it out to their shooters

    Their wings are streaky but they when they get hot, they are very dangerous. Fornier, Ross, Augustin can all have big games if we don't play d

    I dont think any of their guards can contain Westbrook so I anticipate that he will have a monster game

    Harden will do well as get out of his shooting slump and bury some key 3s. He will need to bring his A game on Defense

    I'm advocating swapping Player A for player B in the starting lineup. (A lot of us are.) Can you guess who they are?

    98 minutes, 16.7% FG, 6 points 4 turnovers
    63 minutes, 63% FG, 41 points, 2 turnovers.

    C'mon Mike.

    There isn't any team we can take lightly. We couldn't take Gleague teams lightly.

    Maybe Harden will see that giannis is hurt and kick his game into mvp mode
