Thread: Boogie and AD versus Washington

  1. #1

    Pelicans Boogie and AD versus Washington

    I aint going to lie, its going to be a bloodbath, probably, Gortat said. Its going to be a very, very tough matchup for me and [Markieff Morris], for all of our bigs. Its going to be a challenge. These two are hands down the best in the league.

    We had quite a few interesting conversations as we pondered and navigated the nightly canopy.

    .....and yet we still struggle to play with conviction and string wins together. Losing to teams who have no business beating us.
    Hopefully the team starts to put together a good run with this road trip and gets that focus and winning mentality locked in.

    It hasn't clicked as fast as Harden and Paul have. But they both have sky high bball IQs so that was a no brainer really

    It might take AD and Boogie a little longer to gel, but I think they can

    I agree. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if we went at least 4-2, possibly 5-1 over the next 6 games, and then into February we have an easy schedule. I think people are forgetting that we have had the third toughest schedule in the league thus far. We've played GS THREE times already. 3. We've played Orlando, at the beginning of the season when they were on fire against everyone. We've played Memphis when they still had Conley and Fizdale, and looked like a playoff team still. The Raptors twice already. Cleveland already. The new look Wolves, multiple times already. Houston already.

    Still coming up, we have : 3 Nets games, 2 Knicks games, 3 Mavericks games, 3 post-Fizdale Grizzlies games, 2 more Suns games, etc etc etc. Every single one of those is a potential win. Not guaranteed, obviously any team can have a hot night or drop the ball, but all of those are realistic wins.

    Long story short: we've had a really tough time of it so far, our schedule is a lot brighter from now on, we should start racking up wins more.

    Well...I hope youre right. I keep looking at the Twolves record thinking that should be us plus some more...
    If we can just reduce those bloody turnovers and stop blowing 4th quarter double digit leads...wed be gold!

    Minnesota have had the fourth easiest schedule in the league so far. The only teams who have had it easier are the Cavs, Knicks, and Phoenix. No surprises they've won more than us.

    Noticed Wall has actually shot pretty well from 3 when left open. Any kind of contest seems to throw him totally out but he can make a clean set shot.

    I'm actually glad we're getting blown out so far. I'd rather this than blowing a lead

    This is, simply put, a bad basketball team

    And that wasn't a foul either. No way. AD just decided he didn't wanna shoot that possession.

    Did we essentially have 4 turnovers in a row?

    Yes, but in fairness at least two of them could easily have been foul calls instead.
