Ahhhhh. I am looking forward to this game tonight. Why!? Because there is a 75% chance that JJ Reddick will play and start. I have a weird obsession with JJs Return, i feel he is....

^I think it is our destiny to play GS which would lead to SA. the question is, does Doc back off on the throttle or keep his foot on the gas? Rest CP3 and BG32 or use them up.

It will be interesting to see how Doc plays it. Is he after the 2 spot?

Resting our stars is important but so is going into the PO's in form and with high confidence levels. A balancing act really.

Though I do think "using them up" is a bit of strong way to put it.

Personally I have always thought that resting players in any sport prior to playoffs hurts a lot of the time, the edge seems to go away and the players rust just a tad. That is why I pondered what i did. Dallas will attempt to hurt us, no doubt. they are probably mad about the last game. When we play SAC you know there is one wanker on that team who will try to hurt us.

So as you said,a delicate balancing act. Do we win, try to move up,or try to not get hurt prior to playoffs and settle for the 2 spot. This is why I only play coach in my den.

Using them up was what i came up with before drinking my coffee, not the words I wanted but the best i could do at the moment.

I think well end up being the 3rd. It would be cool if we can rest our starters for the Sacramento and Denver games and bring them back for The last game of the season against Portland so they won't be rusty going into the playoffs

I hope JJ Redick plays, purchased last minute tickets.

Road trip to LA it is!

I hope we do get the 2nd spot though. The Mavs will definitely play hard. Playoff spot and to prevent a sweep. I'm sure they have revenge on their minds. We gotta get ahead, play great defense, and just keep the pace regardless of the score.

I'm really not sure how important this game is for us. We beat Suns and Mavs, Grizz move up and we move up. Which means we are more likely to face Grizz the more we do this. I guess overall I'd rather be #2 and avoid both OKC and SA in the playoffs, but still...hard to call this a critical game for us.

Doc said Crawford and Granger are probably out until the playoffs start. That sucks!!

Ahhh that Granger and Crawford news isn't great. We get healthy and someone else goes out. I think they'll be fine.

It sucks indeed, but if I had to choose one of our SG's who we can just plug into the lineup last-minute and let him do his thing without having to adjust the offense, I'd pick Jamal over JJ all day, every day.

No thanks, don't want to sit through yet another Memphis series. Plus I don't think Memphis will rise up in the standings enough to face us anyway. They're battling just to make the playoffs at the moment.

It took Granger a few games to get back into his form. This is bad news, those few games to get into "game shape" could be the difference between a 7 game series or 5-6 games series

If we're relying on Granger to win us a series, we're screwed whether he's in game shape or not.

Not relying but he's vital in the 2nd units which is our best advantage over GSW. Their starters match up with ours pretty well.

Off Topic , but Blake is a Star in every way. That is probably one of my favorite commercials of his. I remember being at the Atlanta Hawks - Clippers game last season and this section was....

That's a good reason to be cautious on re-signing an +30 year old injury prone player. Unless we can get Granger on the cheap, I wouldn't chase him.

Grangers 13 minutes aren't going to make or break

the clippers playoff run. Don't worry.

Crawford is a cause for concern tho, as he

usually takes a few games to knock off rust.

Spurs were on a second night of a back-to-back, but still, lol. They should have beaten OKC.


JQuick32
Posts: 3385

They would have if not for the absolute deluge of atrocious calls all favoring OKC. They completely neutered Kawhi with manufactured foul trouble when he was shutting down Bubble Boy Durant at the start of the game.

On top of that, the Thunder are just a bad matchup for the Spurs. They're too quick for the Spurs to keep up with, and their role players always seem to have fluky shooting nights against them.

Blake is beasting! Too bad his outside shot isn't falling, or he'd be demolishing the Mavs

Something isn't right. He may be injured or just playing bad. He wasn't in the game to close out the Suns game last night. Was Doc saving him for tonight because of Dirk or what.....

When both CP3 and Blake are beasting at the same time, it's a joy to watch.
