    This is not good at all. Anyone trying to spin and say this will make the offense better you are kidding yourself.

    The fact Lin is out just compounds the issue. The team needs 1 on 1 creators because the overall offense is not good. Either the players can't grasp it or the coaches are bad at it.

    The only positive is that hopefully Brewer gets some burn and plays well forcing Mchale to expand the rotation when Harden and Lin are back.

    Howard should have a good game so long as Brooks steps up tonight.

    Who's starting for the pistons?

    Maybe we can get away with:

    Brooks
    Beverley
    Jones
    Dmo
    Dwight

    Sorry but DMo would get abused by Drummond,Smith or Monroe.

    "Abused" is putting it lightly.

    True, I was looking for scorers around Dwight, but now I'm not sure why I left Parsons out. I thought he was out for some reason, but he's not.

    I turned the game off at halftime last nite. Did Harden re-injure his ankle?

    Smith may be out, too, now.

    Feigen said it's just been bothering him since the injury.

    So he can still maintain his "superstar" status because he can avoid what happen like in the piston game.

    Dude if Beverley is one of our "big X" - we are in serious trouble.

    Or my sarcasm meter needs a tune up.

    I do hope to see more ball movement and off-the-ball movement and a season high in assists.

    McHale's trio is Harden, Parson and Beverley. Howard is expendable.

    Smith's knee issue flared up. Out for the rest of the game.

    Beverley went to the locker room before the half with a hand issue.

    It's the SI curse, folks.

    Harden seems to sit out after games he either gets outplayed in or plays poorly in. He's gotta get past the fact Paul George played better than him last nite
