Good to see Coach give Sasha and Gibson some extended burn. They deserve good minutes even though this is a blowowut. This just gives them more confidense and comfort.

Finally a game where we can insert Pollard and Jones. Been a long time coming.

Cow is furry tonight.

Great ball movement and motion without the ball. Less Hughes and Snow wasting time pounding. Looks like Sasha is more suited as a starter than a sub. Could he perform in the Hughes role? I doubt it.

Funny how slow Snow and Wesley are in the open court on breaks. Gibson's time is now.

Yeah the one gripe is that without Lebron this team is a fast break disaster. Lets just say you shouldn't have Wesley or Snow trying to finish on the break with anyone even close to being back. The best fast break of the night was a Larry Hughes pull up jumper.

But seriously, these guys are so used to having Lebron out there on the breaks that they look like lost puppies without him, no spacing, and who finishes? Its really not fair though because Lebron is a pratically given 2 points or foul on the break even if they got 1 defender back with position.

This was total anti Mike Brown ball. The team gambled in the passing lanes, took shots early in the shot clock and did not switch on every pick n' roll.

Unbelievable. We win by 27 and some of us still take the time to take subtle jabs at the coach.

well here we go again

what is Brown ****ing thinking with this lineup

Snow...Wesley...Jones...Marshall...Av

this could be one of the worst lineups possible
Yet, they outscored the Warriors: 10-8.

Snow was something like +19 on the night.

Play of the game was definately Wesley purposely hitting the side of the backboard on that three, so he would be in perfect position for a layup.

I don't know if this was anti Mike Brown ball, I think its actually closer to what he wants. He has always said he wanted to push the ball, and most of those shots early in the clock came on transition (not necessarily fast break) baskets where the defense wasn't set up. In half court situations, we still ran the offense, and did not take shots early in the clock.

The defensive intensity was there and maybe we gambled a bit more than usual, but everyone was playing great because they only had to play limited minutes (no one got more than 25 except Sasha).
