Dragic's stats at half time: 21 PTS, 5 AST, 2 REB, 1 STL.

Suns up on the Pacers by 17 at the half. Pacers home game, Suns on 2nd night of a back-to-back.

There are some teams that just match up very well against others. I remember when the Bobcats used to kill our championship-run teams in LA almost automatically

Great win for the Suns though, Dragic would be an All-Star in the east quite easily. Very difficult for him to make it out west. Perhaps for Lillard, but its tough to give up a spot to Curry, CP3, Parker, Harden, etc.

Maybe he gets Kobe spot?

Both teams are off.. Not a fan of David Lee's mid range game. I know its his strongest area but I wish the warriors PF was Kevin Love. Both aren't known for being great defenders and rebound the ball at a high rate but at least Love can shoot the 3, giving the warriors arguably the best 1-2-3 three Point making combo in the history of the NBA. :drool:

DJ deserves a thought but not over Cousins, Aldridge. So by default he def wasn't getting in. Pretty much a schedule loss. Back to back home/road having played 4 in 5 days and in Oracle against a team always fired up to play us. Last two games vs Warriors were also off B2B. Tired of this ****. If B2B is scheduled it shouldn't have the superior team as second game.

That's your D's bad. He's scoring at will; hitting his jumpers and finding the lanes. And a 2 to 11 rebound differential from your PF's matters a lot.

I believe he means between the Warriors and the other team, not ours. Obviously you cant predict the standings, but I do think there is some legitimacy to favoring rival games in the schedule, its not like the league shouldn't know about the chippiness between these 2 teams the last few years.

This is true^

But much like pulling on a guys arm for a fraction of a second to slow him down, I personally don't mind it. If it gets called, fair enough, it should be, hats off to the ref. If not? Who cares, should have been blueing the move in the first place.

It's that whole "crafty veteran" thing, like Wades massive kick out on fade aways.

Goose17
01-31-2014, 01:50 PM
Griffin continues to impress me with his improved game, they run so much of their offense through him, couldn't have gotten away with that a season or two ago.

And he's not "great" at the line yet but this improvement in free throw shooting over the last season and a half is outstanding. In the lockout year he was barely shooting 50%, now he's shooting 70% ? I want to know who's been coaching him, has his technique changed? I haven't been paying enough attention.

Still think he's an A-hole though. Glad Bogut did such a good job... until the foul trouble.


Our bench actually moved the ball around, more of that next time please!

Sneaky b2b on the road for the Warriors against Utah tonight. Those guys are 7-2 @ home in the past month including a double digit win over OKC. No team is safe in this ****ing conference.

lol, truth^
