Tough first game, but just happy basketball is back!

OKC has been the team I worried about most to face in the playoffs, just because their ability to score and get you in foul trouble, but i'm interested to see how LMA changes the dynamics of this match up for them defensively. OKC's bigs won't have anyone to cheat off of like they had w/Splitter in there in the past, we'll see how things play out.

I could totally see Durant having a big game back in front of a great crowd, but here's to hoping he's still a bit rusty. :)

:sad2: Giannis suspended for todays game cause he pushed Dunleavy JR in playoffs. Also Parker probably wont play. Mayo might be out with hamstring. Inglis coming back after missing last 3 preseason games with illness. Rookie Vaughn coming back from shoulder injury. So could be a real dog fight. I say give the green light for Middleton and Monroe to chuck 40 shots combined. Hopefully MCW improve on his jumper. Also Ennis is out. This could be one of those nail biter games. To close for comfort. Hate those kinda games.

He and Melo were playing a ton of pickup over the summer. Reassured me. The funny thing is theoretically Zinger is the ideal big to pair with Melo. I just wish I could press rewind on Melo's age by a few years.

Loving what I'm seeing out of Noel and Okafor, but once the Celts started doubling our bigs it was over. Sixer's backcourt/wings are laughably bad right now.

TJ McConnell, Isaiah Canaan, Hollis Thompson, Jakarr Sampson, and Jeremi Grant are a combined 6-24 and 1 assist. lol.

Never thought I'd say we're in desperate need of some Wroten, Stauskus, and Covington.

I agree it was a dumb move by Green but he was clearly fouled in the act of shooting by Adams. Generally they won't call that at the end of games (unless you sell shoes, then you get that call no matter what) but he had not returned to the floor.

Still though, really good game by both teams. Loved watching the Spurs run a post-offense. I hope they bring it back, I prefer offenses like the triangle and Princeton to this P&R stuff that literally everybody runs now. It was cool for a change when it started but I miss fundamental basketball instead of just watching athletes do rim runs off of switches all game long.

That's 19 combined TO's between the two. And there's nothing more harmful to your team than a turnover. 11 TO's is probably top 10 ever also. I get where you're coming from but those are both very bad nights in reality.

Edit: 11 TO's is tied for 13th worst all time. Not exactly the record book you're going for in game #1 of your career.

Yeah he did get hit. Definitely a good game. Some obvious shooting rust but the movement and fluidity was there at time which is good . I'm excited to see them get better as the season goes on. Kawhi was the best player on the floor and his progression is exciting and fun to watch.

OKC is OKC, they remain my biggest fear in the playoffs, but if Kawhi plays like this, I feel a little better. They were moving the ball a little more which will only help them long term.

Oh no, I agree...the turnovers can be detrimental. One would hope they don't become a consistent thing...but they were seemingly rookie mistakes.....and being that it is game #1, it can be expected that he's going to make mistakes. For a 19 year old, he showed flashes of brilliance! And with his ambition of watching game film, i'm confident he can work out the kinks. His production was still great for a 19 year old rookie, and i'm excited to see how he develops.

We really really wet the bed against the Bulls last night. I know the Bulls didn't play well but we played much worse. Super rusty.

Also we match up well with Memphis. Their strength is their bigs, and our bigs can keep up + they run more and are faster. Love keeps Z-Bo out the paint and still manages to pull down 13 boards. Mozzy defends Gasol well and runs better. We swept Memphis last year and gave them a similar blowout last year in Memphis.

Believe it or not we tend to do really well against the top teams in the West.

Yeah but watch that game. There were 4 turnovers that were not his fault. Like Faried not catching a wide open layup pass. He played well and dominated Lawson tonight. Gallo on the other hand was the best player on the floor tonight. Which is great to see
We still need Nurkic back but a 20 point *** whooping was nice to see.

He's good at beating big off the dribble but having trouble finishing.

When he grabs the board he'll occasionally go coast to coast, and I'll admit, he looks out of control at times. Still love the fact that he can pull it off though, it'll take him a few years to master it ala LO.

No Kyrie + a really poor game from Lebron on a road b2b and they still beat a healthy Memphis by 30. Interesting.
Seeing how the game looked, I don't very much find anything interesting there. Memphis just couldn't hit anything, and the Cavs took advantage. Some credit goes to the Cavs defense, but this is probably going to be a recurring problem for the Grizz and it's why they aren't doing anything out west.

I can't believe Lakers lost. Kobe was bad in first quarter but young players did well then Kobe got going, and they blew a big lead. Looked like it'd be a fairly easy win for them. Lame start but I think they can do much higher record-wise. Dunno about 8 seed but maybe 10th.

Wth happened to Houston and Memphis tonight

My Bucks were sloppy tonight as well. Tons of turnovers and missed shots. Hate to use the excuse of not having Giannis and Parker and Mayo. But Middleton and MCW and Monroe missed a bunch of shots. But Monroe still had 22points and 14 rebounds and 4 assists and 2 steals and 2 blocks and 0 turnovers. Not to shabby. But with guys injured and missing. Then we're going deep with our bench.

Also Kidd favors Bayless way to much. Even though they are friends and Kidd is close with Bayless parents as well. So I doubt we ever trade Bayless. Also most nights when MCW takes 17 shots we most likely will lose. But he wont be taking that many shots once Parker, Giannis and Mayo are back. Also once Middleton gets hot hands he be commanding more shots.

Great game for the Magic vs the Wizards. Wall is an absolute beast despite the turnovers (the magic were playing very good defense). Beal is improving his defense. Payton hit some jumpshots, and his form looks 10 times better than early last year. Vucevic played GOOD defense! Surprised how well he did, but i always knew he had the tools. We finally have a great coach in Skiles. Unfortunately i dont know why he didnt put a defensive line up at the end of the game when wall scored the game winning bucket. He had Vucevic and Harris on the floor. Gordon and Dedmon should've been in there. Maybe Skiles is trying to build some trust?

He shot 2-10 in the 2nd half and got froze out by B Scott in taking the Final shot because B. Scott was pissed he called the timeout over his authority (my personal opinion). The game didn't get better for him. He just had an OK 2nd quarter.

Wall and Beal were clearly frustrated at times throughout the game, sometimes shouting at their teammates. Wall showed a lot of fire. He wanted that win bad. Hopefully Hezonja becomes better than Gallo. He has a chance at becoming a great all around player. His defensive potential is very underrated. I'm still not sure what exactly we have there, but I know his shooting and scoring will be extremely important for us.

I've got to say as much as I like the Magic players they don't seem to have the highest BB IQs at this point.

They're a young team playing under a new coach against the veteran Wizards. I honestly haven't been this excited about the future since we traded for half man half ***** Vince Carter. What a failure that was. Finally we have some balls on the team. Howard was a beast when he was here, but even he was soft. That's why he never was a great leader. Now with Mario, Gordon, Payton, and Dedmon we finally have some attitude on the court.

I'm curious as to what posters here expect of the Magic this year. For the past couple of weeks I've been noticing a lot people projecting them to win 38+ games. I'm kind of surprised because we had a really bad record last year, but I do I think its possible. Key will be the defense, and I love what I saw from Vucevic on that end last game. He was using his 7'5 wingspan to contest and his huge body and nimble feet to get in position. The whole team is much more focused on that end. They held the Wizards to 88 points (Wizards were really pushing the ball; they're going to play at a higher pace than last year), under 40% shooting and forced 18 turnovers. They held them to 12 points in the 3rd.
