We are on a roll & looked so relaxed and in control in the end with the ball in Nash's hands. That pick n roll with Dwight was unstoppable & got us the calls we needed, not only that, Dwight made his FT's :jam2:

well he is playing better D than Kobe at this point ... which is sad .. but today he played great D especially at the end against Felton

It is good to see him orchestrate those possessions during crunch time. Assisting Howard for a dunk, shooting that leaner, passing at the appropriate time to Bryant. Nash IS the difference that maintained the lead.

His defense is actually decent, and he completely changes our team on offense. We look like a team with an identity...he is literally THE difference.

He's doing exactly what I thought he would do for this team....keep the positive energy going!! Nash will be tested tomorrow in a back to back situation vs DENVER. Let's see what he's got....

Glad we got the early game today; Denver's not gonna get as much rest. :man9:

Nash is such a pimp. How he penetrates with his lack of speed is insane, he is a pleasure to watch.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

He's a game changer. He makes it so that Kobe Bryant is a luxury in the clutch rather than a necessity.

I'm very happy he's back and playing at a high level. I just wish we would run more pick n roll throughout the game as it seems to be money whether he finds the open man or knocks down the shots himself. 5 game winning streak! :jam2:

Nash actually plays better defense now. I don't know why, but he's really not that bad.

We don't even have optimum on the court chemistry yet. Give it a month and let the offensive orgasms begin.

that p'n'r we saw with Dwight in the 4th needs to be used far more. It's way to deadly.

But yeah, Nash has (like many of us predicted) completely changed this team. For once this season, we have a real team. Pau played well, Artest was awesome, Dwight needs more points but was still dominant, and the bench played good enough.

I am hopeful the the days of Kobe bringing the ball up and trying to go 1 on 3 or forcing a pass are gone.

Our team plays so much better with him on the floor. This game gave me a TON of confidence in our team.

Guess what? Only 11 turnovers today. Much better.

It's true.

But honestly it's all about a system. It's not that hard to force a guy baseline if everyone (including your bigs) are on the same page. Communication and team defense > individual defense most of the time.

Most point guards aren't good defenders, but if they shade their opponent into traps and help defense, it works out.

He did do a great job of contesting Felton's shots from an individual perspective though.

Nash played good this game, but still not able to convince me in defense. Let's wait to see him playing against Westbrook, Parker and Paul 1st.

The best QB in the NBA.

Scary thought -- this is only his second game back. We look like a completely different team with him back.

Am I the only one who expects him to make every pass he throws or make every shot he shoots? I mean, I know he won't and can't...but DAMN he makes everything out there that he does look so incredibly easy.

Yes, let's see how he compares to people that no one in the league can guard and then say his defense sucks because he doesn't shut them down.

I am just thrilled that Nash has so much left in the tank. He looks like he isn't even up to full speed yet. Having 3 champions and 2 conference championship tested veterans to play out the end of the game seems to be working to our advantage :man12:

Man, Nash is proving that my fears and doubts were stright up FOOLISH. He is so steady, so clutch and such a COMPETITOR. :jam2: With Nash at the helm, and Kobe getting many more easy looks off-ball, this team is WAY more dangerous. We looked like a championship level team today...if only in controlled spurts. I am having so much fun trying to imagine what this team is going to look like after a month or so of building chemistry. :man4:

If we can use Jamison for more scoring, and Ebanks DEFENSIVELY (instead of Darius Morris) on guys like Melo/Durant/LeBron, then we can be even more dangerous. I think we could even use Earl Clark's 6 fouls to make the dominant SFs (and undersized 4's) work for their points... If we add just one more player off the bench, either by playing DJO some minutes or by cutting a player and adding someone new to the roster, then this team can become DOMINANT. SO EXCITED for tomorrow. :man1:
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.
