Wed. 1/14 vs. Nuggets - Results Inside - Postgame comments

Payton/Miller & Boykins: Gary is our leader tonight, he is the only hall of famer left, look for him to have a big game and get out of the slump he was in against the Cavs. He has be aggressive and score more points. He knows we can't afford to lose a lot while we are without Karl, Shaq, and Kobe...we need this win, So if he wants to win bad enough, he should be able to go out there with the attitude we can't lose and give us a good game on the offensive end. He needs to shut down Miller, and do the same with Boykins when he is in there. Payton has to look to score, but more from the inside, he should be able to do better against Boykins, because Earl is so small, Payton can back him down ad push him around; but Payton will need to keep up with him, because this little guy is very fast and is the best thing the Nuggets have going for them coming off the bench. And please, Fisher don't let Boykins destroy you like he did last time, that was embarrassing

Rush/Lenard: We all know Rush can score, and he will need to do a lot of that tonight. Also, he has to play strong defense, Lenard is by far not their best player, but can heat up and fast...and I would prefer if he didn't do that against us. Rush has to guard him tight at the 3 point line, because that's where he likes to get going from. I think Lenard will win this matchup.

George/Carmelo: George has to step it up, especially since he hasn't given much on the offensive end. I don't care if he makes a single basket (even though we could use an extra scorer tonight), but would much rather him have a big defensive game against Carmelo and prevent him from scoring very many points. Carmelo is a much better player than George and definitely wins this matchup. I just hope George can't stop him and if he can't, Russell must come in...we can't have a unproductive George in there if he isn't doing anything. I doubt George will do much for us, and he will let Melo get 20+ points, like he did last time.

Slava & Cook/Nene: Nene is a lot more powerful post player than Slava. But Slava has been more than impressive lately. I know Nene will have a better game than Slava, and probably prevent Slava from getting some rebounds. I don't another 25+ point night from Slava tonight. Cook will definitely be given a good bit of time tonight, especially with his solid play recently. I think he would have another good game tonight, he just needs to watch the fouls so he can be useful for us for longer periods of time. Good new for Slava and Cook, Nene isn't a very big offensive threat, so defense won't be very crucial tonight, allowing both of them to focus most of their attention on offense.

Grant/Camby:
Camby will have a better game than Grant tonight, he will outscore and outrebound him. Grant needs to try and prevent him from getting easy baskets, and needs to try and shoot some high percentage shots tonight, and if his shot isn't there, then stop shooting (because when he forces his shot, he didn't get us anything) and just focus on rebounds.

tha x-factor will not be rush or fisher tonight..it is DEVEAN GEORGE...he needs to stop carmelo from gettin 30 on us, and he needs to step it up OFFENSIVELY...he does REALLY BAD when we dont have shaq...he needs to show that he can play good without shaq kobe and malone giving him wide open looks...

i didn't even know they played tonight. damn i'm happy now even if we lose. but i can't wait to see rush, cook, and slava. i'm begging to love them a lot more, esp cook. i've always like slava and kareem, i don't really think anyone knew what to expect from cook. anyways i saw we win tonight, by 1 to 10 pts.

:man11: Don't play Shaq.. we don't need him getting worse and missing the year... stranger things have happened when teams are depleted as we are. This is gonna be the make-or- break game for Fisher.. if he doesn't step up, he's gone... I don't think we can win, but I think it'll be closer than most think... but then again, I've been wrong a whole bunch of times.. :man10: I forgot to record the game but I probably won't want to watch it anyway.. :man10: Anyone gonna be doing a play by play??
"Stu" should be the man...

no, he is playing tonight, and leaving either late tonight or tomorrow. He will miss Friday's game, and possibly more, but we will have him tonight.
