    +/- is a meaningless stat. Just having fun with it

    I'll watch (ref) this in a bit and then give y'all my take. I missed the game.

    Great job New Meyers! You had one of your biannual good games against the right opponent. Perfect timing. You may not have much feel for the game on the micro level, but you seem to have mastered it on the macro level.

    Neil: quick, trade him for Jared Dudley before we play PHO again next week and Meyers reverts to Old Meyers.

    Leonard had a really good game last night. He had a DNPCD the game before, and had 10 boards and 2 assists in 10:45 the game before that.

    If he's not scoring, then rebounding and getting assists isn't a bad thing to bring.

    I hope it's a trend - that he's having better and better games as we play 'em.

    Seems like Meyers is useful to have on the team. Only could hear part of the game, radio being what it is and the Blazers Radio not being what it was.
    Wheels made him sound pretty good!

    Too many times during the little I did watch the game, Meyer's was under the basket when a shot went up, he was standing there next to Len with his hands down and Len is grabing a rebound or a tip in. Zero effort whatsoever! I couldn't believe it. Shooting a three is only a small piece of the game Meyer's, you have to try! At least Zach would look for his man and try to block him out. Somethings can't be taught.

    That was not McCollum, it was McCallum. The Phoenix radio broadcaster will verify this........

    The Phoenix at first attack the basket against Davis and Collins but wasn't successful against them 2. Due to both players make people change shots when they get that far in toward the basket.
