    I think AD goes for 23-11 tonight with 3 blocks. Expecting big things to swing the rookie of the year talk. Also he should be starting now, so Ryan Anderson can jump start the offense off the bench in the first half.

    Looking forward to seeing how Austin follows up his last game.

    If there was any game for him to start this one would be it, Aldridge-Hickson will/would give Anderson-Lopez fits.

    I'm cashing in on the Hornets winning this one on the road.

    This feels like a winnable game for some reason. Hopefully I'm wrong at this point there's really nothing to play for, but experience and ping-pong balls. We'll be better in the long run to just keep losing however I have a nagging suspicion we pull out the win tonight.

    On a side note I think Lillard could have a huge day against Vasquez.

    No thinking about it, IMO. If we don't come out knowing that Lillard can and will go right by Vasquez, Lillard could drop 40.

    But I'm looking forward to seeing Aldridge vs Davis on both ends. I hope someone gets the it in the game plan to put Davis near the rim. His hook shot works with either hand. How we aren't using it more baffles me. We'd rather rely on Lopez's super flat hook instead.

    I expect a big game from our front court. Anderson is a bad matchup for Aldridge and Lopez is a bad matchup for Hickson. However, I do expect to lose

    Aldridge is also a bad matchup for Anderson

    Too bad we don't have the personnel to be able to guard Lillard the way Dallas did.

    You realize this statement makes zero sense, right?

    "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."

    Our front court can't do well and we still take a L? Or are you talking about the way I worded it? If the latter, I apologize. I was on a phone which made it tough to type.

    I get a feeling Lillard and Davis will be the top performers for each team tonight.

    With Sasha starting for Matthews tonight there is no possible reason Vasquez should be on Lillard tonight.

    Give Rivers that match up and see what happens, maybe he gets smoked but so would Vasquez.

    Lopez doesn't need to be taking those hooks he likes, it's pretty clear he can get under the rim against Hickson. Put in a little more work next time.
