    I like our team! Emphasis on team....man it feels good to have multiple players in double digit scoring and rebounding

    Tooting my own horn. GT played just about 36 minutes per game. Came in at the 6 minute mark of the 2nd and 4th and played the rest of the half.

    solid solid win. Melo was massive everywhere, not just on that last shot. he forced Harden into a turnover too and blocked a Jeff Green 3pt shot that we have forgotten.

    massive contribution.

    We're going to pass Memphis before the play-in and I think we'll stay in front of everyone else to be in that eighth spot.

    Alright go ahead and admit it.

    Stotts is coaching this team well right now. Adjustments every game and a different look for all three teams. He is going with hot players and giving the team a chance to win. He has not missed on a challenge and he has called them at crucial times.

    I'll certainly take the win, even if it wasn't artistic!

    At the risk of pissing people off - I still think replacing Ariza with Zach has been a negative for us.

    For this year they're probably pretty similar impact wise.

    But I agree that ariza would have been more useful against the teams we've played so far.

    Dame really didn't have monster but hit some big 3. CJ hit some key shot too. Melo play very well and plus the dagger 3 at the end. Nurk again was a monster in there and Trent was big again plus he also had dagger 3 at the end. Whiteside play a lot better seems he was in the game mentally. Zach still coming along had decent game he did get 7 boards tonight. Simons hit a 3 in the game still has away to go.

    Better athlete. More of the type of talent that could develop into a guy that can play a high usage on ball role.

    Gary had the skill set to play a role earlier on.
    Very happy and surprised that he's gotten to this point this fast though. Props to him.
