    The PG play was fine. We didn't need them to dominate the game.

    This is what I'm talking about. Taking care of the weak teams. Would have probably been a loss if TMAC was in there (ballstopper). Got to give it up to Von Wafer. The garbage time All-Star. Where is the Von Wafer from January? We need him back soon and in the playoffs.

    It seemed like under JVG Yao did more spot-up jump shooting in the offense. I remember that this was what made Dream's game really deadly...that 18 ft jumper. We know Yao has the range...WE KNOW THIS. I wonder why there aren't more plays drawn up for 14 - 18 ft jump shots for Yao?

    We've come together as a team as I expected after Kneemac's departure.

    I don't think Yao or any other Rox players need to pad their stats. I think their more concerned about winning... Would like to see Adelman rest Yao more and and let Deke fill in. Even though Motumbo is not an offensive threat, he has a knack for grabbing offensive boards, setting good screens, and creates extra possesions...

    I don't understand the way the coach played Yao's time in the second half. What if Bobcat caught up at the fourth quarter?

    You base this conclusion on 2 games and about 25 minutes of play time vs Reafer's 3 1/2 years?

    His release is too friggin slow that's why. He always gets closed on and it's best for him to fake it.

    Alot of those shots he takes he fakes...and no one comes...then he takes it it seems.

    forget comparing stats.......the offense is just smoother and better with brooks and lowry. lowry has the intagibles. he makes the first pass that leads to more passes for points......where as with alston and tmac, it was always them making the final pass and they made sure of that...stat padding like crazy hence the good numbers with bad field goal percentage

    I live here in Manitou Springs, Colorado.
    Nuggets fans are ridiculous: i take more abuse...you wouldn't believe it.

    They lose Nene, theyre done.

    Didn't they try to do this with Yao last year? Yao was always in the high post and told to shoot the jumper but was either to hesitant to shoot or just looking to pass from that range, so they had to just keep him in the low post. But it's not like he never takes that shot now.

    nice game...

    I didnt like Yao, Ron and even Shane....playing so many minutes either...

    I think with a team like the Bobcats...

    we could afford to play some of the bench players a little more... almost for sure...

    Landry back or not....

    Yao will be playing 36 minutes plus vs Cleveland... you know Lebron will be...
