    No sticky icky tonight, when there was it was lin trying to pad his stats in the last couple of possessions. 26 assists, yummy! Our Backcourt played excellent, martin only got 2 wide open looks. the rest were contested. The fuhrer's offensive was halted.

    love ab getting some of that magic back.

    I wonder if Chicago would give up something for AB as an instant offense guy (which they had in Nate Robinson). They can use a play maker.

    Yep when we trade Asik I hope it's for wing depth and a backup center.

    Dwight/Jones play good together.

    I don't really agree with the first part. We could have won with Harden playing. The ball does tend to get "sticky" with Harden in the game though. He needs to stop playing hero ball for the team work and ball movement to improve.

    Harden did improve his ball watching skills this game. LOL!

    Our guards need to learn tempo. Trying to play too fast often leading to unnecessary turnovers. Slow it down and wait for a good shot especially when we have a large double digit leads.

    Blame it on me. I jinxed the Rockets after the 6-0 second half start.

    Seriously. Not hating on Harden. Love his game but hate his ISO.

    Man 8 rebounds in 13 minutes for Asik....that guy needs a bit more playing time. No wonder he's having a fits.

    I thought it was a good shot. I like that he is trying to work high-arching fadeaways into his game. Now, it wasn't a good shot because it hit the backboard, but that happens. Bev is also trying to diversify his games with that spin move to floater. It hasn't really gone in much, but it will if he keeps trying to work it into his game. They both are expanding their games. I see it as a positive.

    It'll be hard for McHale not to play Brooks from here on. He is our best shooting PG on the team and he is probably the best at getting to the rim. People say he cant pass, but some of his passes were spectacular tonight.

    Thib didn't like Nate since he doesn't play defense. AB is a liability defensively too.

    All three of our PGs played great tonight. For both teams. If they can just cut the TOs a little bit, we'll be tough to beat. So happy for AB, and also for TJ. TJ looks like a starting 4. Maybe we won't be trading at all this year-- I'd be cool with that; hope Omer will feel the same way. Good win.

    AB says Patrick beat out Lin for the starting position, interesting nothing about "fit".
