    There is no rivalry, I don't get why people think there is. I don't plan on starting anymore so...

    With that said though, I don't see the big deal about this thread being up. More time to discuss the game, which probably wouldn't have happened without the thread.

    I mean. I'd like these threads to be game DAY threads and not just game threads. Otherwise, why just make one at a time? Why not just make all the rest of the game threads instantly right now?

    It's like typing FIRST on a YouTube video or something.
    Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.

    Only on WBOK 1230 AM.

    Feel free to PM me for more details.

    I knew it.


    "I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."

    Hornets rookie Austin Rivers rolled right ankle during practice today
    Don't know if it's bad or anything to worry about just yet. I guess we'll know more a little later.

    Holy ****. This is getting ridiculous. What is it with this kid and his right ankle?

  10. #35
    His ankle is freaking jello. I'd bet he plays Wednesday unlike some other SG we supposedly pay to play basketball.

    Austin may need to start wearing these

    Looks like it's not a big deal. Still expected to play on Wed.

    I'm starting to understand what Warriors fans seemingly always go through (with Curry).......

    Thankfully, Rivers' injuries have all been very minor, yet Curry has had several surgeries on his ankles. My concern is that it is the same ankle he keeps rolling, so Idk what's up with that. Hopefully, this is just a fluke...

    Agreed.

    However, according to the TP article you linked, it's a different ankle.

    It mentioned that he previously rolled his left ankle (twice), and now he has rolled his right ankle.

    Not sure how accurate that information is. Too lazy to verify.

    My thoughts exactly. If someone else would like to do the game threads go ahead, I apologize for putting it up 3-4 days ahead I enjoy the pregame discussion and breakdowns.. In the end we're all Hornets fans aren't we?

    What's crazy is Rivers pain threshold and being able to withstand multiple sprains only if Erica Gordon had the same mentality.

    Also Davis needs a pair of Abdul-Jabbar goggles since his contacts keep falling out.

    Davis and Lopez are going to have a tall task in trying to keep Asik off the boards.

    I am hoping it is more Davis and Anderson or Davis and Smith. Fact is that Asik is going to get his share of rebounds, but you have to make the Rockets pay for having Asik in on the defensive end of the court. He cannot cover Davis, Anderson, or Smith and will get torched on the perimeter and off dribble drives by any of the three. But if Lopez is on the court, he can just sit by the basket, change shots, and grab boards. I am praying Monty recognizes this early on and Lopez gets the majority of his minutes when the Rockets take Asik out. I would love to see the minutes go something like:

    Davis-37 Anderson-35 Smith- 20 Lopez-16

    Seeing some interviews last night it sounded like Rivers will draw Harden to atleast start the game.

    This is something I will pay very close attention too, because Harden uses the pick and roll in 33% of his possessions, more than any other type of game (iso, off screen, post up, hand off, etc). He has ran the p&r 63 times to start the season, has shot 33 times off the pick and is converting about 49% of his looks. He also looks for shots beyond the arc about 30% of the time, though he hasn't had much like converting threes this season.

    Rivers on the other hand, while he's been good defending the pick and roll (defender shoots 20%, turns it over 44% of the time) it's been in a very small sample. He's only defended the pick and roll 9 times in 4 games. He'll surely get a healthy dose of it tonight. I'm sure the most likely scenario though is we through a little off Greivis, Farouq, Mason and whatever other wing see's the court tonight. Greivis has been awful in his 19 possessions so I hope Monty is smart enough to not go in that direction.

    BTW, if you want to revisit this thread:

    http://www.pelicansreport.com/showth...-ON-BALL-stats

    Some of you may remember Farouq's stats last season:

    Al-Farouq Aminu:
    PPP- 0.92
    FG%- 38.2%
    %SF- 4.7%
    %TO- 7.8%
    %Score- 37.8%
    Through four games they've been a whole lot better:

    PPP- 0.67
    FG%- 28.3%
    %SF- 5.6%
    %TO- 9.3%
    %Score- 29.6%

    Also, not to oversimplify it but it really comes down to whether the Rockets make their 3's tonight. They take about 20 per game and in their wins they have made about 34%, in their losses 26%. That is a 5 point swing on just three-pointers alone and most of their games have been close. Gotta contest and hope they miss

    This is a good point. We don't need Lopez's post defense since Asik or anyone else on the Rockets are threats scoring in the post. We can get by with Davis/Anderson/Smith for most of the game.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    I'll be at the game! Very excited to see da Brow in person. I also think limiting the Rockets threes are going to be very important. Delfino and Parsons have been killing teams with their three point shooting. A matchup to watch is Vasquez vs Lin. Lin's been struggling with his shot, but he's made it up with his steals this season. Patrick Patterson has also been a nice suprise for them this season, so I hope that Davis can limit him with his athleticism.
