    Second tallest player on the team is Steve Novak. Isn't this the time for "next man up?"

    Just for fun, I thought I'd look up Novak's career block numbers. 35 blocks in 402 games...

    ...or 1 block every 11.5 games, lol.

    On a more serious note (not that I would put anything past Coach Casey) here is Eric Koreen's take:

    If we lose, im staying far away from these boards which have become littered with "chicken little" panic from former tankers who long for missing the playoffs for a slightly Better pick: glf, mack11, and craig

    Tyreke went crazy last time these two teams faced each other. He has to be contained, and I would love to see Ross shut him down.

    As for Davis, I think Hansbrough has to guard him tonight. His pressure on the Offensive glass might even force Davis into foul trouble.

    I was never in that "tanking" cult, that's right, I called it a cult.

    Doubt it, Ross seems to weak for him. Tyreke is the aggressive type, if he puts effort in.

    Umm I have NEVER wanted us to tank. Ever. So I don't know where you're getting this. I'm actually not going to panic if we lose tonight because I don't have any type of expectation that we'll win. Like none. I always worry we might lose every game but at the back of my mind I have faith we will pull it out. Not today. I'm expecting us to go on a little losing streak until both JV and Patterson come back.

    Not playing Hansborough more is crazy and why didnt MU sign a big body from the D league on one of those 10 day contracts (ala Gooden). I dont think he was in the D but Novak & Hayes together in the front court is pitiful.

    Davis is stupidly good but is still only a second year player, DeRozan/Lowry gotta play on his mistakes to try and get him into foul trouble.

    Raptors by 8.

    Well the Raps currently have 15 guys under contract. So they'd have to waive someone. And it's very unlikely that even if they wanted to do that, a new signee would be able to play tonight in New Orleans. Maybe we'll see some chatter about it after tonight if they lose and this issue will last a few games.

    Yup. Gooden is looking real good for the Wiz. Anyone here watched the Nets/Wiz game last week? Gooden was fantastic. What a steal for the Wiz. We could've used another big like that. Instead we have 5 PG's. 3 of them don't play at all.
