It looked good last night and especially so in the first quarter. It will be interesting to see if we have the stamina to keep it up and how we do on "back to back" nights.

The transition defense has been a concern for years and this up tempo style exposed that last night. We won against Phoenix... not so sure we can play like that and beat OKC or SA since they are actually built for that pace and we aren't.

Anyway.... good start and it will be interesting.....

Our guys simply wanted to show him they were ready. They scored 114, which impresses me. Cut the turnovers, up the D, and we're good. Keep in mind we were doing this without Nash. He'll know how to control the tempo.


This right here. Last year in the playoffs, we got after it on D (for our standards), which gave us a chance in most of the games. We couldn't score, run a set, that didn't involve Kobe doing everything. When the offense gets into a rhythm, this team will be scary...

The bolded part is crucial. The TO's are the type of just being care less with the ball and being lazy. They can be fixed with some focus on the players parts. Last night the Suns got 26 points off TO's alone. Cut the TO's in half and we blow them out and hold them to the low 90's.


We turned the ball over 11 times against the Suns. And that's despite playing an uptempo game. So no problem there.

I do agree with the defense argument. The FG% was too high.

I thought it was " Duh-Antoni".

It's italian, so the pronunciation "Dántoni", emphasizing the first syllable or whatever it's called.
DANtoni}}

i think

^ Actually, I think I now see the problem. It's not that people are asking how to pronounce his last name. It's rather that difficult first name.

M-I-K-E.

It's pronounced, "shahallalahahdaha." I think that's why there's so much confusion. Doesn't look much like it's written.

Mike D'Antoni will not be on the sideline tonight, after all. Bernie Bickerstaff will continue to run the ship.

Too bad. I was looking forward to seeing him on the sidelines. But, he does work with the guys in practice... they know what he wants, and Bernie is more then competent. It's all good.

Need more offense. We're mediocre without Nash. :mhihi:
