1st of 7 games in 12 days....is this our time to move up in the East???

We have won 7 out of 8, that is Great stuff! Nice comeback tonight. 22-19 halfway through the season. I still think we are possibly the 2nd best team in the East only behind the LeBron's but Toronto and Boston look pretty good.

We are definitely not the 2nd best team. We are the fifth at best. We are still awful on the road and need to figure it out still. We better keep taking advantage of this easy schedule right now before we face the tough teams. February is going to be tough.

I don't know what we are yet..could be 2nd..could be 8th or 9th

....we have to accept that we are a new team with new players who have never played together

Look at tonight's top scorers.....  PG, Al Jefferson, Jeff Teague

..where were they last season...?

I think anyone in the East is beatable though except for the Cavs. Not sure where we stand? I did say possibly 2nd.

It's almost February. The "new team" excuse doesn't work anymore. If they don't know each other now we won't be making it far.

I was thinking about this yesterday, and figured we could and should draft OG Anunoby out of IU, even though we have PG13. Anunoby could be a big 2 guard (6'8", 235 lbs) because of his great athleticism. Move him to the 2 and his defensive prowess could basically remove the opponents SG from the game. He's got great bounce on the fast break and can hit from 3 when open. Thoughts?

If he didn't blow out his knee ?

Makes no difference what month this is or isn't..

..that's just the reality of basketball....Teams that have played together for years have an edge on teams that have played together for weeks.....

 

especially on defense......

That was a pathetic sequence before the timeout. PG and Teague lose the ball and just stand there as the Lakers go on a fast break. Myles makes the first guy miss but they get an easy offensive rebound because nobody got back. Then they turn it over again and allow another offensive rebound that leads to the three.

 

And they wonder why they don't win on the road...

They probably don't wonder why
