Let's go Reggie. I'm calling it now. Reggie Bullock drops 20 in a game in the next 2 weeks.

I really think he's got a chance to drop in a big game or two.

Our 3 guard lineup isn't working that well. We need to at least be playing bullock or Dudley for size purposes for most of the game.

What happened to Matt at the hands of Zach Randolph makes me dislike the Grizzlies even more. I hope Matt comes back better than ever and take revenge by having the best year of his career. He's had some bad luck on injuries this season. It's time for good luck to step in. Get well soon, Matt!

I don't know how to hate them anymore then I do. They are a lowlife, classless team that has to fight because if the game was based on skill they would be in last. A-holes sharpen their elbows before every game.

I also fault the NBA for letting them get away with their bull-**** all the time

Man, Matty B just can't seem to get a break and stay on the floor this season.

Get well soon, the bench needs you.

On the bright RB25 gets some quality time.

I kind of want to see more of stephen Jackson, I am not pining for barnes to rush back. I really liked what I saw last night, as I said in the game thread he is like the first small forward we have had In a While that has real post moves. I think that adds a different dimension to the team. Barnes had a great game 6, but Jackson has a track record of delivering in post season. I'd like to hold onto him.

Honestly I wouldn't mind the experimenting, but keeping him really handcuffs us going forward. I would much rather experiment by picking up a quality big later; having a full roster makes that pretty difficult. So I would be surprised if Jackson was kept for the entirety of the season.

It's true that Jackson is the first SF we've had that scores in the post though and I think that works with our second group pretty well, especially defensively. But most of our offense depends on creating open jumpers and Jackson just can't shoot well enough to coexist in the long-run.

They can play together, both can guard either forward spot against most teams. If Jax keeps getting better, no way they release him. Dump Wayns first if they want to sign Lamar or whoever.

We don't need a 3rd PG, when CP takes his annual 10 game injury hiatus in Feb., we just give Collison 35mins and split the rest of those minutes between the three SGs. They're all smart vets and they can all handle. I'd rather have any 2 of those guys out there vs. giving Wayns minutes.

Whether or not a 4th SF is more important than a 3rd PG; we're hooked to pay Wayns his 800k no matter what because of his injury. If we release him and then pay another 1.3 mill for an Odom/Odom-like player we'd still be under the hard cap. So it's all about whether Jackson plays well enough to warrant 900k more in our tax.

For me Jackson would have to show that he could still play quality minutes when our team is fully healthy for management to take that risk. If playing the 6'8" at power forward is actually effective down the line then sure. I don't think that happens unless there's a plan to move one of the other wings before the deadline.

I don't really know much about Malik nor do I wish anything bad for him, But I just really like Jack on this team, he has value beyond his play on the court, kinda like Chauncy Had, plus watching him throughout his carer he can Play Pg through PF, and I think we need him, I like the Idea of Throwing Multiple guy's out their for a guy like Durant, Plus with all of our 2's and 3's being really good we can treat them like a football squad were we keep recycling fresh players at the position that could work, but it's a little over whelming to look at the Roster and see so many players at the 2 and 3 position lol we have 3 pg 4g and 3 sf that's allot man.

Matt Barnes being cryptic on Twitter 15 hours ago:

"Just got out of the eye doctor & he said..... ??"

Tonight!! Now that's exciting.

I wonder what is going on with Dudley and his tendonitis? He seems to be playing better but if Matt and Jackson are available will he get some time off?

He made a video explaining he had to have another surgery and be out two extra weeks a little while back on instagram. I would not underestimate the versatility of Matt Barnes' social media usage. Though if he did get 10-15 minutes in today it would go a long way down the road for matchups we need him for...like Christmas day.

Mondays game showed some promise from Jackson. In 17 minutes he made 3/5 shots for 6 points. While this isn't huge production you can tell these few games have served to shake off some of the rust. My hope for Jackson isn't so much for him to be a big scoring contributor, but to provide some grit that the squad lacks when Barnes isn't present. As long as Jackson puts up about 8 points on effeicient shooting that will be good production.

I particularly think Jackson will come in handy when we play teams with dirty players. We can throw Jackson on guys like Ibaka or Randolph to get physical.

I agree with @PageC4, I think a lot of these dirty players will watch their P's and Q's with Jackson around. I really want to keep him around due to that fact.

I also wouldn't mind seeing Jackson go at Ibaka, that would be great.

Jackson has previously faced off against Ibaka, and he's even gone as far to warn Ibaka that it would go down. If an angry Matt Barnes isn't enough of a deterrent then Jackson will surely provide that.

Yeah, I kinda like what I see with Jackson. I also watched his interview with Madelyn Burke and am kinda rooting for him. Just not sure how we can keep him with Jared and Matt.

Good news that he's even cleared, though. Looking forward to having an up-to-speed Matt Barnes back after a couple of games to get his legs.

Think team continues to go small off the bench with Barnes and Jackson at the 3 and 4. It only really gets cluttered a little when Bullock comes back but even then he will probably be on standby.

According to Rotowire, he'll dress, but Doc said he hopes to avoid using Barnes before he gets a practice in. He participated in shoot around in his goggles so look for those.

So we will most likely see him play against the Nuggets. He will have had a chance to get some practises in.

Matt Barnes is better than SJax except for playing the 4 spot. That extra weight SJax gained allows him not get out muscle but still quicker that forward which allow him to successful defending them

its good to see that due to Dudleys amazing turn around Matt Barnes wasn't needed. we can slowly integrate Matt in the lineup and let Dudley reduce his minutes to rest his tendonitis

Odom? Yea, interestingly enough, the fatness is actually a positive for Jackson in terms of using him as a backup small ball 4
