    The problem we lost is due to lack of strong players for rotation. It causes poor offence and defence. Lack of depth of our bench. Morey and MDA needs to think,about how to solve the problem. We are invincible if our team is 100 percent heathly.

    This is a must win. The GSW game isn't a realistic win with our health and home Ryno.

    I don't think many fans understand the concept of "must win".

    Hope Capela was adjusting to his mask last game.

    Gordon needs to unslump, so Paul has less pressure.

    Keep it up, Green !!

    Will a hallmark of d'Antoni teams be their tendency to peak in December?

    Play a ten man rotation, and results be damned. Stay healthy out there.

    should pull a pop and go all out this game, then sit CP3/EGO/CLINT for the GS game

    I don’t think any win is “easy” these days, but a strong early effort could knock out the Magic. Hit them early and often. Play with teamwork on D to combat the athleticism that they have at the forward spots (Gordon, wow wouldn’t he look great next to CP3).

    Anderson needs to find his confidence.

    This moment reminds me of a time long ago when Hakeem went down. His teammates (Kenny Smith, Horry, etc.) really found themselves and we went on to win championships. That was when our perimeter defense went to a new level. I’m hoping for similar results, but it’s more about balancing our offense than D this time.

    Maybe a healthier Harden will come back and rotate more easily, losing his man less often (those habits were creeping back). And maybe the coaches will trust the bench and give them roles (and matchups) they can handle. That’s really on the coaches when starters are hurt.

    Big rotation and limiting Capela and CP3 ‘s minutes. Not ready to give up on the Warriors game that easily and couldn’t care less about going all in on winning this meaningless game.

    I want to see Weber have a nice game. He's not going to score much, but I want him to bring that defensive intensity i think he has. If he can fill in nicely for CP we may be alright
