    It’s a tough game, not a easy one. Baze probably will be the starter. Need to get this W. Let’s go!

    Let's all forget about that disaster the previous game and concentrate on this one. This is still a winnable game, even with our injuries.

    This is one of the teams we are fighting against for the last few playoff spots. So a win here is doubly important.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like we play other teams when we're missing a lot of our players?

    Thunder had a weird game last night. They were down 2 and CP3 missed a jumper with 6 secs left so I switched to the start of our game. I was shocked to hear OKC won by 12 in OT. Apparently, Minny missed 2 FTs and got rebound, then missed another FT, then got a tech and Gallo hit the FT. Then Minny made a FT with like 1 sec left and then Adams throws full court to Dennis who hit a layup to send it to OT.

    Yes going agree with you on this due to he might be our future small forward. But that not how Stotts looks at thing he doesn't what to mess up rotations. I expected him either Baze but won't be surprised if it Mario.

    Better than being 9th or 10th seed and still not having a great pick.
    I’ll take playoffs any day.

    They'll start Baze and have Mario back him up...Nas will probably sub in for Melo....this depends upon how long Trent is out

    I'll take 9th or 10th and have a chance to strike gold in the lottery over 8th.

    Do you realize how bad the odds are? Even being the worst team gets you only 14% chance. A 9th or 10 seed has like .005% chance. That is 5/1000 of a chance at the top pick And it only goes up to 2/100 of a chance at top 4.
    Nah i'll take to Playoffs and hope to strike gold in a series.

    Still better than 0% I've seen this team get swept enough time to not want the 8th seed. If we are only good enough to sneak into the 8th spot, then we are not winning a championship. And right now it's championship or nothing for me.

    Trent would be a better option to start than either little or Bazemore, mainly because of his shooting. But if he’s out I’d rather see Little than Bazemore.

    Someone for Minny checked in without his jersey tucked in. It's supposed to be a delay of game penalty. Normally that wouldn't matter but Minny already had a delay of game so Chris Paul went and told the refs the rule and they basically had to call it even though they never do because ignoring a rule would've been worse. Since it was Minnesota's 2nd violation it resulted in a technical.

    Then Minnesota was dumb and allowed a full court inbound pass for a layup as time expired. Crazy finish.
