Denver is a touch matchup for a team with no identity because they hustle so well. I've been flipping back and forth (this and football)...pretty ugly.

Just tuned into the game to start the 2nd half since the Dodgers seem to have this one in the bag.

This game isn't quite as smooth as yesterday's game.

Hey, last season Denver destroyed us most times we played them, this game is ugly as hell, but at least we're only down 9 with no Farmar, no Kaman, limited Johnson, and of course no Kobe. Denver has all their guys from what I can tell, that we're even hanging around is good enough for me compared to last preseason.

You spoke too soon, now down 13, but yeah with all the injuries and players not on the court at least there's an excuse for losing this one, unlike last season.

Missed the first half, ugly 3rd so far. Xavier seems like the only bright spot so far.

Yeah, Henry and Williams are solid tonight, but 20/74 team shooting is super bad...

Ah I see, well still, we've played a lot of end of the bench guys, Landry for example, and Sacre has gotten a lot of minutes, so I didn't really expect to win this one. Clearly 'Antoni is trying to see which guys are going to make the team, as DJO and some guy I never heard of just came in, he's not trying to win so much as trying to see who gets cut and who doesn't.

Based on 2 preseason games vs all of last season, Henry > Meeks to back up Kobe. :man10:

I also like the effort I see from Harris, I see why they signed him, not a bad end of bench SF.

I'd rather keep DJO over Meeks.

If we want an undersized SG, might as well go with the athletic one.

Boateng is just laying illegal screens out there. Have a nice flight back overseas.

You don't think Shaw wants to win this one......

Lawson, Miller, Hickson, McGee, Arthur all playing in the 4th quarter.

Too late unfortunately, Meeks option was picked up, I assume because we needed to keep cheap players.

Also, dang, the NBA isn't messing around with illegal screens stuff, Kendrick Perkins, KG, and some others better be worried.
