    Nice win, but it doesn't change how I view the team really. Would have been shocked with a L here, the Cavs blow.

    Fact is, our team really is just that-- a team. To each other they are vocal, supportive, helpful (Pekovic telling Love he has something in his beard) and when they are winning it is a joy to see.

    Love has to prove himself as a number one option on a playoff caliber team. Nice game, but it's the Cavs. Let's see him step up consistently.

    Kirilenko is invaluable and irreplaceable on this roster. I can't wait to see him clash against Durant, because he's that good on D.

    If Malcolm Lee can become a poor (quite poor) man's Avery Bradley/Iman Shumpert, we have ourselves a perfect roster when Rubio/Bud come back. If everyone is healthy there will be no excuse for missing the playoffs, and Love will begin to come under heavy question.

    We are hovering around the 8 seed at .500, which is exactly what we need to be doing. I don't consider Love to be 100% yet, Rubio won't be for a few weeks after his initial return, so we won't be running smoothly for a while yet. But we are where we need to be. The most crucial things we need to do are to win games like these. It's a huge sports clique, but you absolutely have to win games that you're supposed to. Losses like the Bobcats loss will kill our hopes if we make a habit of it.

    After the next 4, our schedule takes an insane turn.

    @ Miami
    vs. OKC
    @ NY

    I'm hoping to get to the garden for that game on the 23rd... if we can pull out a win vs. one of those teams I will be ecstatic.

    Yeah, after these 4 days off, there are no more large breaks.

    well said. I have talked about the need to see Love in the playoffs as well to gauge him. Remember, most struggle their first time there, which is why its essential to get into the playoffs this year to get the guys some experience there, with time during Love's deal to return with a team who has played 4-7 playoff games.

    My dream matchup would be the Spurs. The athleticism on our team would be a lot for them.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I hate it when cats wake you up at 7am on Saturday to feed them. So annoying.


    PSD Grammar Lesson #1:

    a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
    b) there - means "over there" as in location
    c) they're - short for "they are"
