    Ridiculous tipoff time to accommodate for the WNBA finals this evening in Phoenix.

    Apparently most of our starters might play.

    Can't watch at work :(

    Just saw this was happening - guess it's good background noise while I work. Good thing I'm working from home since Root doesn't let me stream remotely.....

    Is Little still injured? As much potential as he has, the guy is constantly out for nagging reasons.

    A lot of activity, not a lot of effectiveness.

    So, a motion offense is nifty when the guys that get set up on the perimeter can hit an open shot. When they can't, it makes me miss Dame's hero ball.

    With our old defense, we would be down 20-2.

    More like 20-16 because we would at least score.

    Thank God we got rid of Stotts and his league-leading offense. Scoring points is overrated!

    Also: apparently it's "sporting" to allow open threes every time they come down the floor.

    Good thing they're too embarrassed to hit most of them.

    Somebody needs to ask Nassir Little why the hell he’s always injured with so little NBA playing minutes under his belt..

    Be prepared to have him unavailable a lot this year

    All I can say is that it's blatantly obvious we have a team that has not been used to passing for 8 years.

    I don't think we remember how to move the ball AND score. It's one or the other.
