I'll just go ahead and fix that for you:

Interestingly enough, better then what we used to have: Smith and Ratliff.


Smith and Ratliff never got their kind of playing time.

Both are hit or miss shooters, but in almost all other phases of the game they are disastrously bad.

Jeremy Lin had 25/7/5/2 for the Knicks tonight. Wow. I remember when we tried to sign him last year.

If Duncan is a big...and I don't see how he's not...he's far more skilled than d12. So is Dirk.

Anyway, our bigs have 27 points, 11 boards, 3 assists, 3 blocks. Fierce.

I don't understand Murphy's decision making at times. Dude will pass on an open three to take his man off the dribble in slow-mo, and then after successfully bewildering his opponent by doing something so awkward looking he goes and blows the easiest part of the move by missing the easy finish right at the rim. What is that?

Al Jefferson is pretty skilled as well. His fundamentals around the basket are very good..... He can't jump, isn't that tall nor overtly physical yet he is very effective on a consistent basis...

Murphy is a soft big. Everyone here thinks Pau is soft....but Murphy is the definition of a cream puff big.

D12 as the most skilled big is just silly. Best big? Probably. But most skilled? It's like they don't understand the terms they're using.

The second unit offense was an interesting adventure. They ended up holding their own, but there were some truly ugly sequences in there where Glock had nowhere to go.

Bynum looks a step slow on the boards tonight.... and the rest of the team isn't picking it up... Kobe, Metta and Murphy with only 4 combined......

A couple of Kobe's rebounds were pretty hard fought though. An odd game from Kobe though. He finally reached a point in the late second quarter where he got sick of the contact and started playing pissed.

If he ever gets the ball after a defensive rebound his instinct is to just get rid of it ASAP which pisses me off to no degree. I can't stand him.

If I remember right, the same announcer started talking about ice cream cones right after that. He decided puff, puff, PASS was not an option before the game and puffed away.

No argument here.... just observations.....

The whole team looks a step out of sync. Travel and back to backs. Pau is working the boards and showing effort.

On the good side of things..... only 6 turnovers and we are shooting fairly well and not settling for the 3 too often.

We need help outside of our big 3 which have scored 40 of 49 first half points.
As good as anybody, much much better than most.

Interior passing by Drew is much better than his passes to the perimeter....
