    Meyers was alright tonight. He did some good things, but still had his standard awkward moments. Watching him play basketball is kind of like watching 2007 era Britney Spears. You just know something untoward is going to happen at some point. Leave Meyers Alone!!!

    Man, i hope they don't suspend him a game for that. Those usually aren't served until regular season.

    Didn't get to watch this game, but it doesn't look like Collins played well, and Meyers did. Wonder what Stotts is thinking in terms of who plays.

    I love that Meyers had one of his best games in forever, and was still a -2

    Collins has played exponentially better this preseason than Meyers.

    Collins didn't shoot well but he was agressive enough to get to the line. Plus he a decent job on There starting power foward.

    Yeah but that was because of the 4th when the 3rd team gave up 43 again. He played ok last night with the regulars. I don't like him playing out on the perimeter, but gotta give credit where credit is due......he was hot from out there. His 4th 3 was from at least 26 feet.

    As usual he was ineffective against smaller players attacking the basket, but he was hardly the only one. I think we all focus on Meyers when on D, but last night I was focused on watching Harkless trying to cover the rookie Jackson. And I was not impressed. We need him to step it up in the regular season. At least he won't be surprised by him on opening nights since we have already played them twice.
