Haha! That page has a link to "preseason standings". Hardly relevant given that some teams are playing the Xinhua Super Dragons and whatnot.

But way to go Phoenix, up there on top of the Pacific!

Here's what I hope to see today:

  1. Defensive intensity as a team.

  2. More of DJ blocking/intimidating shots and rebounding!

  3. CP3 doing his thing (not really an issue).

  4. Would LOVE to see BG hit some mid range jumpers and rebound, but he may not even play.

  5. Willie continue to be aggressive (a pleasant surprise)

  6. Dudley hit at least a couple of threes.

  7. Offense that's spread out and movement.

  8. Mullens hitting a couple of well advised shots, but also grabbing some rebounds.

Stuff like that.

I can't wait for JJ to play. Doc is deliberately keeping plays out until our starting SG is able to join the lineup.

Looks like that 1 1/2 weeks turned into 2 weeks. Hopefully he can get in 1 preseason game :? Injury toll Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said all the team's injuries have had an effect on team workouts, but there are healthy signs. Matt Barnes (sore left calf) should return to practice next week, and J.J. Redick (bruised left quad) is about two weeks away from practicing, Rivers said. Meanwhile, first-round draft pick Reggie Bullock, who hasn't practiced all camp because of....

1st Chauncey can't start at SG because of his inability to get healthy and now J.J. Redick has a quad injury. Hmmm....something seems fishy.

Perhaps they were sabotaged....Dun! Dun! Dun! But who who would pull off such a deviant act?

There's only man in the world who would benefit from having these people injured....

Jinkies, it's old man Green!

Have you ever seen Willie and Guido the leg breaker together? Maybe that's it.

Sounds good to me.

No 4 It would be good to see BG shoot one step closer in.

No 8. It would nice to see Mullens shoot better and less.

It would also nice to see JC score a bit. The whole second unit offense needs work really, which is natural.

Yeah, nothing too strenuous. At least in this game. A few 10-15 foot jump shots. Some rebounds if they swing his way. Make the right pass. Play hard on D.

Doc on 3PT defense: "We held Portland to 20% but we counted 7 of them they should've made... We don't want to be lucky, we want to be good"

That's a lot different than what VDN used to say, "we need to run out on shooters". I love Doc's attitude toward things.

I've had NBATV on for the last couple of hours, and man does it make me appreciate Ralph & Mike. Last game was WAS vs. CHI and the Chicago guys were just dicks... to the Washington players and even to each other. Now it's NYK vs. BOS and these guys sound like they need a shot of meth just to stay awake.

No wonder Ralph is such a legend. He's like 114 and he has more energy, humor and character during warmups than most commentators have during crunch time.

LOL Cleepers! We are, indeed, spoiled. Everybody else seems to either be atrociously homers or just atrocious in general by comparison. For the most part.

Ugh. There's almost no way to guard against landing on someone else's foot. Hopefully his ankle is okay. Some bad luck so far for this guy. However, I like the D so far.

Yea, that's one of those situations you can't really do much about, poor Blake.

Liking DJ's more fluid FT again tonight

DJ's stock is rising. Maybe we should trade him for a solid center. Very Happy Wink

DJ 3 blocks already. Had a good transition D where he went straight up to stop a Hayward's charging layup. Shows me his playing much smarter.

Wtf? Trade DJ? Not if he keeps this up! Dude is singlehandedly demoralizing one of the best frontcourts. DJ has already blocked Kanter 3 times in 1st quarter haha.

So Blake's okay, I guess...

...DJ may have made 1 out of 2 FT's but even the miss looked good. Man, I desperately hope he plays with this kind of intensity all season. Can't expect him to be able to do it every game, but if he can be consistent all season long playing like this? Nobody will want to go to the basket against him!

Mullens is gonna be "interesting" this year. He's 0-3 from 3 after hitting his first 2, then got an and-1 on a layup. At least he's either shooting from distance or from close range... that's "efficient".. right??

I like that Doc has said wants to see Blake take the ball down the court at times. Blake seems to make pretty good decisions and rarely seems out of control.
