Aaron Gray had a decent game but I was wondering why was he in the game at crunch time when he shoots 40% at the free throw line.
3 point loss to the Grizz? Bring it on. I'll take that all year. All it shows is that add in AB, JV and next year's draft pick and we can hang with most of the big boys.....all the while ensuring that the above mentioned draft pick is higher and higher. Tight games lost in the last minute give us a look at what is to come. Silence us while you can Mr Gay.
Didn't rebound the ball well either, when something isn't going one way, you have to produce another. He didn't tonight. He had some good ball movement tonight, he passed the ball to the right guys. He passed to the assist a number of times.
Demar is inconsistent, if I was DC. Put Bayless in the starting lineup, they are so dangerous with their two point guards in the backcourt. Demar give him 20-25 minutes off the as the three, he's gotta earn it now.
Does anyone notice that we play very, very well against the best of the teams in the NBA. And lose to alot of the worse teams in non-respectable scores? We play down to our competition level.
Anyways, we hang with the best teams in the league, we lack talent, but hard work and effort shows a lot of how ''hard work beats talent, when talent isn't working hard." Except we didn't win, but almost did you can say..
I love Aaron Gray, fundamentally sound defensively, got a good finish and touch around the rim, sets hard screens, he would be an awesome back-up behind JV. Resign him BC..
Bayless, I've always loved this guy, plays hard every night, and tonight, it seems like he has matured, hopefully it continues.
Demar was disaapointing.
you high reuben. Barbosa at the 3?
DeMar didn't have horrible game. He had some problems scoring around the rim early in the game so he limited his shots. He knew he wasn't on. I don't think Allen (who scored 5 points) had that much to do with it. Now if DeMar would have went 2-16, then maybe you can go to town on him. I think it's good that he didn't force his game.
He is going to have bad games, it happens with young players. I like that you are sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for him to fail.
We out rebounded Memphis 36 to 35. How do you get on a SG for only having two rebounds. The big difference in this game was the turnovers 16-9. DeMar had none. If you guys are searching for another player to hate, it's not him.
As for Bayless, I don't see how you can like watching him. He is the biggest black hole on this team. For a three minute period in the fourth quarter it was Bayless and Barbosa taking turns doing isolation plays from the top. It was brutal to watch. Finally Casey pulled them for the starting line up. I really hope he isn;t around, because he is a poor man's Barbosa.

Yes I did see who was with them. I have no problem with them taking shots, but I like to see ball movement. I'm cool with looking off Gray. Ed can score in the right places. That's Bayless's job as a point guard to involve his teammates and putting them in positions to succeed. Compare him to Calderon and it's night and day. Last night it was working for him, most nights it's not. I'm cool with him not being around next year, especially if he is playing the PG position.

Player to hate? Sherman Hamilton and Leo Rautins said it best (Hate to say it) when something isn't going right, you have to produce for your team another way, turnovers? They're not supposed to happen anyways so that's a given. He has 34 minutes in the damn game. He scores 4 points, and grabs 2 rebounds? Where's Barbosa?
Bayless is a scoring guard, and he sparks this team. He was efficient and was energized, a point per minute on the floor. He made bad decisions, but he made very good decisions too. He plays with confidence, no fear. I love it. Without Jose, we can't win and run our offense well, but without Bayless, we lose swagger, confidence, and defense. He brings little things Jose just doesn't have, that balances what Jerryd can't do.
We've always been a team that likes the combo of two point guards, i.e Jose, Jack - Jose, Ford - Jose, Bayless. I would take this combo out of any of those.
