    Solid defense again sets the tone and flow. Great game but what a gut shot losing Wood. I know he’s being aggressive and that’s good but his health is more important. He has been taking unnecessary risks when he’s coming off an ankle injury. The game before last he tweaked it again when charging the paint, Silas pulled him for a minute to talk but put him back in to finish the game. Wall might be a bit high in himself but he is the leader, out offensive flow sputters when he sits. He has been playing great. If Dipo can’t get in the flow more effectively we have to trade him. On a side note, House had a good game, he’s an underrated defender. just wish he was more consistent. And Gordon is playing great. Our team would suffer without those two at least at this point.

    It was horrible and extremely frightening to say the least.

    Trade PJ and Mac together. Add House as well if someone wants him. We need a good FRP or a better overall role player than these guys in the front court.

    That looks like a wig for sure. Bad things happen to wigs around here.

    I like the optimism.

    To be fair, though, we were lucky some of these 3s went in, they were not wide-open shots. This should've been a much closer game.

    I'd rather trade this game to a loss if we can reverse Wood's injury too.

    I like the take, but it could refer to any win in nba, and all these games all the time could of been much closer...

    20 pts win in fact is 4-5 possesions games due to prolific 3pt shooting and 6 points swings due to lucky breaks or the refs mistakes

    so nuances and luck decide every game in fact

    Optimism? are you kidding me you may as well be a words greatest pessimist and still feel good about the squad that did ALL THIS


    when all these things occur its not about optimism its REALITY
    1 we didnt have the NWABA DOG
    2 we didnt have OLADIPO
    3 we lost WOOD midgame
    4 we play on the road
    5 we play the streaking Grizzlies team with the best record in last 8 games
    6 who the refs helped massively in the 1st
    7 we didnt have HARDEN


    AND WE STILL WIN BIG TIME

    We'll need Cousins to hold the fort while Wood is out. This is going to be tough, but I'm so glad he's here.

    Unless he can play 48 minutes, get ready for smallball 3.02 15 or 20 minutes per game. Or is it 3.03? Lost track.
