We are .500 over a 34 game period which is a decent period if time (17-19) since the trade
Just needed something positive this morning, last nights win was VERY sloppy and we seem to be playing that way every night since the ASG.
yea and we won in spite of the refs with those terrible calls in the final minutes sending magettee and stephen jackson to the charity stripe so that should count as like a 10 pt win win with a lvl playing field.
LOL the needing something positive is because i Was as Hungover as a person could be. Back to somewhat human form now
Exciting game last night, we should have killed them though which is frustrating. I really like Raja Bell but he is not the same since coming back from this second injury. When he is off the team really suffers. I am starting to think in the offseason we really need to push for a better 2. I think we are weak down low with Okafor and Diaw because while Diaw is awesome (Our best all around player IMO) he is not a inside prescence and while Okafor is a top 10-12 center int he league he cannot comete with the very best which might be OK if we have a physical prescence at PF but Diaw is finesse (Again i think he is great for the team) I just think the combination of the two of them will never allow us to be championship material.
For next year though we need to be playoff material and to do that i think it would be better if we have a star or near star 2 with Bell coming off the bench to provide D and a 3 pt stretch.
The question is how do we get that. I LOVE DJ and think he is going to be an awesome player but you cannot deny that Felton is getting better by the week and is as Durable as a Prime Mike Tyson. He will get much beter and is still young. Can we move DJ, along with some other things (what i don't know, a draft pick, May / Singletary, etc) who knows and get a well above average 2 in here?
When Bell is on we pretty much can kick 80-90% of the leagues ass, when he is off we lose rhythm and flow and sputter. My fear is his inconsistency is here to stay.
Just some random thoughts as i come out of my hungover stupor
I predicted a 3-2 road trip and we can get that with a win tonight which we should easily get. That is not bad. Last night was key as we could have been looking at a 1-4 trip. Now we have a chance to go over 500 on this trip and come home Tusday night with some nice momentum
Tonight game will be key. It's the second of back to back, but atleast it's at 10:30 so they have basically the whole day to rest. 17-17 isn't a hard task for this team. Last two games have kinda fallen apart at the end, But a win is a win.I really think we have a shot at the 8th spot. The other teams seems to be sliding. Might take ten games but as soon as LB works his magic on the team, We'll we've seen what he can do.
#1 mission.... stop so many turn overs
LOL yeah I suppose, for me it was about 12 pints of water and a nap.
Heading to the gym now to work out and then will likely do it again tonight with some pregame fiesta'ing at the house before the Clippers later
