I presume this will be a loss, but you never know. Sobering thought: if we win 60% of our games from now until the end of the season, we finish 43-39, likely missing the playoffs.

I think this is a W.

I only say it's a win, because they lost a pretty close game last week against the Jazz. It's a revenge game :man9:

Kendall Marshall started three games for Phoenix. They were all blowout losses.

Marshall's numbers: 36 MPG, 6.0 points (7-24 FGs), 12.3 assists, 2.3 rebounds, 2.3 TO, 1.3 blocks

How in the world did he get 1.3 blocks in 3 games with his limited athleticism? :man4:

I'm hoping we get as much loses as possible, it's the only way Season ticket holders can pressure the management to do something...... because at this rate.... I can see Staples Center being half empty for the rest of the season.

we're starting Sacre over Shawne, Kaman, Hill, and Kelly?....Soooo basically our offense is going to suck and defense will be the exact same. We'll have no floor spacing and no one is going to get an open 3 bc the Jazz can leave Sacre wide open for midrange vs leaving Shawne/Kelly for 3 or Kaman for midrange.

Gonna be a slow ugly game and another loss. But whatever, its kind of expected with all the injuries. Hope Johnson is not sick and can actually contribute.

They are calling this 'Team Tank'. Get a chance for high draft picks too. :man10:

That makes more sense. :man10:

But I'm still shocked he had any blocks at all.

why not Kaman??? Pau & Kaman in that one game or two seemed to show some sort of chemistry.

Is this the first basketball game after that Antoni/Mitch secret meeting? Tonight's starting roster will once again be fascinating.

Without cheating, how many games did those five combine to start last season?

Spoiler:
Marshall 3 for Phoenix
Meeks 25 for LA
Young 17 for Philly
Gasol 42 for LA
Sacre 3 for LA

Total: 90

This should be interesting...... and by interesting I mean most likely not.....

But hey..... this is how the true fans pay for the championships.
