    Anyone just have no freaking clue whatsoever how to feel about this team right now? After the first half of the Suns game, I was 100% ready to go full tank mode. Then Boogie looks like a total dumpster fire last night, they squeak out a win against Detroit, and I'm thinking they wasted an easy loss against a competitor for a bottom seed. Now they're beating the Mavs by 25 with Boogie putting up 28/17/5 a night later. What in the hell? This team needs to quit playing with my emotions.

    Wall is the Boogie whisperer.

    So funny reading some Mavericks board's reactions: Who are these guys? I don't even recognize a single name....Tate? Brown? Jones? Martin? Nwaba? we're getting destroyed by bunch of G-Leaguers....

    I'm very happy. Any win vs the Mavs is always welcome. EG's trade value has increased. A contender will want him. Luka's Mavs were badly exposed! Boogie showing he is the boss! They were missing KP, but we were missing CW and VO.

    No way. If EG starts it will be at the 3 but coach has wanted ego and Cousins to provide off the bench

    I'd rather keep Gordon over Dipo.

    The team and Silas need time. And still needs time. I've made the point of us playing well below our potential considering all the factors. We have talent, but lack polish.

    The Elephant in the room is that Wood being out makes our defense better :( He needs to play the 4 and we need another big.

    It should be Wall and Cousins off the bench IMO.

    Wall and Boogie have chemistry.

    Wall lacks that chemistry with Wood.

    This is why i said tank vs no tank is a silly debate. We need to sit back and see what happens by trade deadline.

    That was a hell of a win! Silas has got the entire team looking focused and committed—I can’t recall the last time I’ve seen the squad look so organized in garbage time!

    The offense looked noticeably better with Wall back...but then he got subbed out and it still looked good! Perhaps it was Oladipo messing with the flow by not knowing the offense well, but if that’s the case he’ll get the hang of it sooner rather than later. Smart players pick up things quickly.

    We have a lot of young guys with a lot of potential, but even more importantly it seems like our players are finally getting a grasp of the new system. The Rockets have strung together two wins now, one in the clutch and one blowout. I hope this bodes well for us going forward.

    6-9!! N I C E

    Im sure your high on a win, but still this team is streaky, and in and out. Im not going to buy into this until there some consistency. People overhyping over couple wins. They got to think about getting to .500 before people even think anything.
