Man.. Amundson is a terrible player, sorry to say it. Why cut Davies when we have a guy who can foul out in 5 minutes and can't hit shots or defend?

Mullens near the basket? Even though he got blocked

Maybe the stretch big experiment didn't work for Mullens and he should be a pick and roll / around the basket big who if necessary can go out and shoot, lol

I honestly am not that hyped! I saw the back up bigs we brought in and was very discouraged! Byron Mullens is terrible and was never big on him!!!

Bench:

Darren Collison

Jamal Crawford

Matt Barnes

Lamar Odom

Ryan Hollins/or somebody! Maybe a Brandon Haywood with the 2.6 TE we have from the Bledsoe Trade!!!

STARTING LINE UP IS WONDERFUL!!! Its the bench that is our achilles

Wow... This looks like a Vinny coached team tonight for the most part, especially on D and the glass.

Man I do wish LO did not get into a mess like he is right now. He is so much beneficial than Mullens. Sad.

Its good this team is getting the extra practice for defense.

Unfortunately, it seems like I was right. Our backup bigs are gonna be our Achilles heel this season. If we can trade Crawford for a Elton Brand type of player or even a Birdman type of player I would do it in a flash.

We seem flat footed and lazy - they have all the second chance points. No way should that jazz player have gotten the rebound of his own free throw. What a disaster

There's Brendan Haywood. Stiemsma would have been nice, but New Orleans does need their C. We'll see what happens. DJ just has to never be in foul trouble

Wow! Where the fu** are you Mullens!?! Fails to close out, gives up putback dunk. Same with Amundson.

We should definitely consider trading for Kenneth Faried!!!! Maybe they would take Byron Mullens for their running-type offense

With the way our backup bigs are playing we will be playing BG and DJ lots of minutes this season....

Mullens is just awful. Awful, awful, awful! I don't know how we managed to get worse on our front line from last year (which was already a weakness) this is a. Serious problem, our bench is going to cost us games.

Well, either Matt or Dudley will make our bench instantly better (starting to think Dudley). But, yes, I am wondering if a trade is in order for a better big inside somewhere down the line.

Frankly, with a new coach, a new system, new players and guys coming off injury, I feel like our early regular season games will be almost like preseason in that we'll still be a work in progress until everyone is on the same page.

Is something going on with Mullens? He seems out of it, more so than usual. And Lou is just being Lou. Sigh. We shouldn't be behind the Jazz. Where's the rebounding?

We need Crawford any scoring and shot creaters the best better. Doc needs to put Bullock in and we have no damn two way players as far as bigs but we can't give up our scoring.

Haywood is out for a while injured. My bad, Lou is playing bad tonight.

The WEST is too good to be wasting games like that! You see the difference one game made last year between home court and the chance for 3rd!

Jazz are like 0-5 in preseason and are looking better than us.

Mullens again out of position on D leading to a dunk! Bench this fu**ing guy before I have a heart attack.

Mullens is a homeless man's version of Jamison....

Collison ignites the comeback every single time like Bledsoe used to. LOVE when he gets aggressive!

And to think back at how the Bobcat Fans tried to warn us about Byron Mullens now it seems they were right about him!! Is there any way he can be traded maybe packaged or something for Kenneth Faried or maybe even MARCIN GORTAT!!!! YEA THAT SOUNDS GREAT

We may not have a choice. I'm not saying tank the games. Definitely try to win them, but I'm saying I don't think we're going to gel until all these guys get more time on the court together.

What in the world is that kind of player? I'm trying to imagine it, and it doesn't compute.

What do you guys think could make him more useful?

Agent 0 what would make him most useful is if we could trade him! Him being gone is the best thing he could do for this team right now

You have to be the most hopeful trade person ever. Kenneth Faried will not be a Clipper, lol. It's not like we're the only ones that know Mullens isn't so good.

Still confused as to why Jamison hasn't been playing more. He was solid first few games of preseason. Poor defender but super start offensive player and at least plays hard.

Man, I feel like he's going to give you nightmares or something. Well trading him won't get any value, but if he isn't traded, how can he not be so bad?

I am afraid it will take a LONG time for him to be a useful player. Maybe he will never be a useful player. He has to improve his offensive and defensive awareness. He has to improve his shooting and shot selection. He has to improve every aspect of his game. He doesn't have a single strong suit and loads of weaknesses.

Probably just rest because everyone has sat out and got some rest and probably reward for how good he played against the Nuggets

Makes sense. Yea I do like Jamison as our backup 4. Smart guy, makes the right plays. My issue is definitely with that backup 5 spot.

Yeah, maybe we should play Jamison more. We know he can score and, oh yeah, REBOUND.

Hollins messes up a lot but dammit you got to love his energy and effort he is always running and at least trying.

Jamison with the great PNR defense, deflection forcing the turnover!

I want to trade Mullens for Lebron James but we have to be realistic here. We don't have the assets for Faried imo since CP3 and BG are untouchable and we already have two starting quality SFs so we don't need him.
