Iverson really wanted to play tonight. But, while team officials called his knee fine, he didn't make the trip because it was thought the flight would lead to additional swelling.

"I need to (look at) the bigger picture," Iverson said. "I can't start off the season struggling with an injury."

Iverson fell on his knee in practice Oct. 3. He missed three days of practice this week, and had the knee drained. But he said he returned too soon.

"It just swelled up," said Iverson, who had only five points in 23 minutes. "I should have waited a few more days. I was anxious to get back and try to play in the first preseason game."

Anthony also would love to play tonight. But while he made the trip, he doesn't expect to play.

Anthony suffered a contusion on the fourth finger on his left hand in practice Thursday when a teammate slapped the ball out of his hand. X-rays were negative.

"I just want to get one more practice under (my) belt," said Anthony, worried somebody "could slap it and set me back a few weeks."

Anthony expects to return Wednesday against Utah.rockymountainnews

its better to wait and be healthy than attempt a preseason game and get hurt even more i guess

that court looks awesome, i just realized that our bench is like really awesome, almost like a young/experienced starting team, the trailnuggets, lol

PG Smush
SG Smith
SF Kleiza/Balkman
PF Howard
C Birdman
We have to just kill this season, we have so many good role players now and it would be sad if we could get passed the first round this season

why isnt nene starting?

C-Dub
10-11-2008, 08:58 PM
in my lineup, cuz he is the real starter and that is our bench in my post

10-11-2008, 09:17 PM
the starting lineup last night with melo not playing was:

AC
AI
kleiza
Kmart
Nene

tonight without iverson there im assuming JR will fill his shoes.

tonight without iverson there im assuming JR will fill his shoes.

I'm thinking that's a solid assumption.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:04 PM
alright lets see if we can get something going in here..I'll be in here let rock this place.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:17 PM
Shaq vs Nene now that is very interesting for Nene..he already commited a foul and shaq ia on the line

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:18 PM
k-mart scores the first points outdoors

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:19 PM
mismatch on D, k-mart was on nash he blew right by him and carter picks up the iffy foul. 3-2 suns.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:20 PM
Nene got his shot packed by shaq, he put a good move shaq just too big..however nene just made a nice jump shot.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:21 PM
Nene with the offensive rebound and the putback AND HE DREW THE FOUL ON SHAQ.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:22 PM
carter sure sloppy with the ball handling.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:23 PM
Shaq just stuffed nene again, but it was called a foul. nene can't hit a FT

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:24 PM
nene with 2 fouls now.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:25 PM
great passing there with nene to finish.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:27 PM
hey look robin lopez, and he just packed nene. boy nene just gets packed.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:28 PM
robin lopez just blocked another one this time against k-mart.

SUNDUNDIDIT
10-11-2008, 10:31 PM
We need to get rid of Anthony ****in Carter right away.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:32 PM
d.jones not playing too bad.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:33 PM
humm the D looking very similar to last years..I see some improvement but can't handle a pick and roll to save their lives..

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:34 PM
We need to get rid of Anthony ****in Carter right away.
don't mind having him just not as a starter

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:34 PM
wooo birdman is in.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:36 PM
man look at Kleiza and birdman play some d. LK looking good, slimmer.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:37 PM
AC is sure trying to do too much..he should of just laid it in there, instead threw it away

SUNDUNDIDIT
10-11-2008, 10:38 PM
don't mind having him just not as a starter

He sucks...Period. He's out there lookin oblivious on how to play D.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:40 PM
He sucks...Period. He's out there lookin oblivious on how to play D.he can play D, just not offense. He was one our best defenders.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:41 PM
nice defensive effort by the team, forcing the 24 second violation.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:43 PM
you see he doesn't have an offensive game, the only knock on him on defense is that he is short as hell.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:44 PM
AC
patterson
LK
anderson
Howard

that is a tough line to put up some points.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:47 PM
that line is definately a poor offensive line. I like these players though, LK flying around getting the rebounds, patterson playing in your face D, haven't seen much of howard and Anderson has missed a couple of chances to put up some points and a couple of rebounds but not bad. I am enjoying this

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:49 PM
there is howard taking on shaq.

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 10:50 PM
AC
patterson
LK
anderson
Howard

that is a tough line to put up some points.

before those 4 points suns didnt score for 3 minutes

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:50 PM
anderson drawing the foul and going to the line. that cleaves guy is in for us..not a good impression

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 10:51 PM
i dont think nene and k mart can take on superb big men

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 10:51 PM
nice take by patterson

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 10:52 PM
lopez looks pretty nice imo

DenButsu
10-11-2008, 10:53 PM
i dont think nene and k mart can take on superb big men

Nene has done great against TD in the playoffs and also Shaq in 2006-07. K has also done great against Duncan as well as Dwight. I think they're solid.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:54 PM
alright not the only one in here anymore.

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 10:54 PM
Yea but when they're going up they keep gettin it stuffed but its just preseason they're probably not taking it up their hardest

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:56 PM
i dont think nene and k mart can take on superb big men
I believe Nene has done a fabulous job on shaq, shaq hasn't taken him to the hoop.

DenButsu
10-11-2008, 10:57 PM
live game thread ftw! :clap:

cmello, I think it's just gonna take some time for K and Nene to get used to playing alongside each other without Camby in the mix. They really don't have very much experience playing together, with alternating season ending injuries and all...


I'm listening only... sounds like Kleiza's doing well... oops until that foul...

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 10:57 PM
yea but offensively he isnt looking up to par and i saw some openings that shaq didnt take


nice dunk by kleiza

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 10:58 PM
Man I love the way LK is playing. Patterson with the and 1.

DenButsu
10-11-2008, 10:58 PM

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:00 PM
yea but offensively he isnt looking up to par and i saw some openings that shaq didnt take


nice dunk by kleizaYea offensively Nene needs to work on his offensive game on the superior big man..but defensively he has done just fine.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:00 PM
Who got the block on Barnes?the one and only birdman.

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:00 PM
barnes w/ the hack on kleiza

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:01 PM
god what is with the pissy free throw shooting??

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:01 PM
dahntay jones looked pretty good nice backup

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:01 PM
birdman nice steal and post shot

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:01 PM
ATTA BABY BIRDMAN, with the steal and putback.

DenButsu
10-11-2008, 11:02 PM
the one and only birdman.

Nice.

cmello, for a great scouting report on the difference between Camby's defense and Nene's defense (and the offensive subject is Shaq), watch this sometime:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjkRJ6DgKro

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:02 PM
lol birdman tried to go up w/ shaq

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:03 PM
thanks den

nene>camby on-ball D IMO

camby was more of help D

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:03 PM
lol shaq just keeps getting those fouls. LK got knocked and again the free throw shooting is pitiful

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:05 PM
we keep getting set up for the ft's but cant knock em down

btw nice to see nash isnt keeping out pg's on skates

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:06 PM
nice suit mello lol

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:07 PM
ha JR with the devil ears on melo with the interview.

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:08 PM
bad shot for ruben

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:09 PM
Anderson is going to have to work on getting better position b/c he isn't exactly a power threat down low, so either he buffs up or uses better technique.

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:09 PM
who is at the line?

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:10 PM
bravekid:

yea he got man handled a couple times

but he just got fouled hopefully we can make some ft's

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:10 PM
humm shaq picks up another foul but I don't think that was a foul on birdman. AND GOD CAN WE HIT A FREE THROW

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:10 PM
more of the same with the ft shooting

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:12 PM
lopez is doing pretty good but missed a easy shot

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:13 PM
7-0 run isnt lookin good 4 us

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:13 PM
So lets see what happens when a big man who isn't suppose to shoot 3's shoot 3's

he misses, creates a fastbreak, easy bucket for the suns. don't let anderson shoot 3's

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:13 PM
carter should stop reaching

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:15 PM
where is iverson at???

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:15 PM
the offense just isn't making good plays. not making things happen, penetrate kick out, move it a little.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:16 PM
where is iverson at???didn't make the trip, I believe he felt that the trip would further injure his knee..so he didn't want to risk it or something like that

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:18 PM
yea defense isnt doin too bad but the missed shots are leading to easy fast break points if we can keep em to a halfcourt game we can win

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:19 PM
offense just not flowing..if AI was playing we would have that spark that playmaker. we don't and J.R isn't doing anything.

SUNDUNDIDIT
10-11-2008, 11:19 PM
he can play D, just not offense. He was one our best defenders.



Most wide open shots, come from players he's guarding...Sorry, but no.

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:20 PM
f%$# grant hill it couldve been easy points and a nice fast break

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:20 PM
uh oh J.R playing stupid, J.R focus on the penetrations don't just pull up for the jump shot

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:21 PM
yea jr's missin shots but ai has failure to launch and cant make shots in the first quarter

DenButsu
10-11-2008, 11:23 PM
where is iverson at???

out with injury - knee contusion, I think.


They're without:
L. Barbosa
R. Hite
T. Johnson
S. Singletary
A. Stoudemire


We're without:
C. Anthony
C. Atkins
R. Balkman
N. Fazekas
S. Hunter
A. Iverson
J. Mays
S. Parker
S. Weems


And the score is 31-37 at the half. Not that bad under the circumstances. Sounded sloppy at the end of the quarter there, though.

10-11-2008, 11:24 PM
Robin Lopez looks solid. Good defensive presence. Didnt realize how BIG this guy was. He wont be a dominating center but certainly a nice player for phoenix.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:24 PM
Most wide open shots, come from players he's guarding...Sorry, but no.just being over aggressive. Don't try to tell me he can't play D dude. He was a key defender on our club last year, he played well he helped us win games. Bash his offense all you want, but the guy can play D, that's all I am saying.

cmellofan15
10-11-2008, 11:26 PM
i didnt see him at the game even in a suit

but robin is doin great he misses some easy shots but got some back

and i was wonderin if i was gonna see balkman

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:27 PM
lopez beasting. just packing guys shots from left to right. nene just getting packed all night long.

Balkman's resting a few days due to a tweaked ankle. We're just all banged up right now, but fortunately with the exception of Atkins, none of it seems to be serious at all.

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:32 PM

yea him and dahntay jones were nice to see but i didnt like seeing jr smith gun like that

And i'm sayin he can't play D....Even last year he was leavin people open for being "over aggressive", and that **** doesn't work out.he helped us more than he hurt us on D last year (well at least during the season, in the play-offs his lack of height hurt us). It was him, Nareja and Camby the only guys who would play D night in and out and actually stress it. Fine dude, don't give him credit when he deserved it, b/c he did deserve credit. Whether you want to admit it or not he was a key contributor on D during the season, offense it's a different story.

BRAVE KID

I keep forgetting it's preseason to be honest, I just want to see some emphasis in areas we need to improve. Him jacking up shots may cause bad habits.

but w/out iverson and anthony somebody has to take the shots

as long as he drives im cool with it even if he misses but those stupid shots are kinda annoying

BRAVE KID
10-11-2008, 11:55 PM

as long as those shots are taken intelligently..just catch and shoot won't do it.

kind a low scoring game....im happy with our production so far, we have 2 all stars sitting out and they have 1 out and we are doing good with our bench players

BRAVE KID
10-12-2008, 12:05 AM
yea btw he still plays SF right?

more mised ft's now its balkman
Yea he does. Plays 2-guard and SF, the main positions where the 3 point specialist are at, and the playmakers. I Loved him when he was with denver.

cmellofan15
10-12-2008, 12:05 AM
Sounds like we're pretty damn scrappy out there...

Yea D's up to par, offense could be doing better, (for both teams) Balkman finally came in and is doing good, and still waitting for Smush to get out there

DenButsu

Balkman is playin.

Glad to see it. Pre-game reports said he wouldn't. I hope that means his ankle is really okay. :nod:

Balkman is playin rather good....He can guard Nash one on one better then anybody else on our team.

No Melo, no AI - we start off from a 50-point deficit we need to make up from other guys before we even get going.

Not exactly unselfish if you look at what JR is doing and we're shooting a horrible fg and ft%

DenButsu
10-12-2008, 12:09 AM
if you could watch Den you would be impressed with the overall team defense..on offense however it's a different story.

I'm not worried about the offense. Hardly any of the guys playing in this game will need to create for themselves in real game situations because AI and Melo will always be on the floor and defenses will be zoomed in on them. Really glad to hear about the D - I hope it's for real.

My god, someone always has to challenge my opinion or judgement....MY DUDE, Nash was runnin around, and gettin some plays made the first two quarters, but since Balkman came in, a lot has been inhibited. Just deal with it.

BRAVE KID
10-12-2008, 12:15 AM
I just hope Melo doesn't **** everything up..we finally seem to have a complete team effort on D. I beg that he contributes.

C-Dub
10-12-2008, 12:15 AM
you have to put into account that a lot of the game we are playing will improve in the regular season for a couple reasons

-its regular season
-we will have actual rotations and everyone will know there role and get better at them
-all our starters will be playing, more minutes too, so the bench will lay harder when they are in

cmellofan15

No Camby

We had 56 in the first game, too.

it looks like we might be better w/out Camby as long as we keep the injuries to a minimum k-mart only played 71 games the last 5 years so i cant expect that much from him

24 sec violation is good for us but we need to bring the offense and take advantage of those good defensive efforts

BRAVE KID
10-12-2008, 12:31 AM
as Den said once we get AI and Melo back our O will come together I just hope the effort stays in tack on D, AI will go out and play d, it's melo that I am worried about.

cmellofan15
10-12-2008, 12:34 AM
i dont think mello will mess this up its the perfect set up for him to prove himself as a leader. he doesnt have to play the best D he just has to guard somebody close enough and it will work itself out

Part of that poor assist total was a function, I'm sure, of our crap shooting.

The Suns as a team only got 8. Nash alone averages more than that. But they shot 31.6%

We shot 36.2% in this game. In the first game, we shot over 50%, and got 31 team assists.

oh yea, definately the guy was awesome. the nugs challenged him and he came up and made some key blocks, his offensive game though was quiet.
