    These Hawks are so bad that we should be leading them by 20 points by now. Unfortunately, we are not playing to win either.

    For those of you that say that Moose never draws double-teams, he's being double-teamed the entire game, and the last two possessions he was triple-teamed. FWIW.

    Siva is 3-4 from deep now and he looked good hitting them. If he can hit them like that regularly, he'd be a keeper.

    Jennings is pathetic. I'd start Siva over him at this point.

    Even when we are supposed to lose, we wind up playing all of the starters (sans Smith) to win a game we didn't need. 102-95

    What is Loyer trying to prove? We don't need to spoil the Hawks chances of missing the playoffs, so the Knicks can make better TV

    The bad >>>Jennings, Pope and Singler shoot 7-20, the good Siva outscores them all with 10 points. The other good-bad...Stuckey goes off for 29 points ruining any chance of us gaining a half game on the Cavs and Kings....


    Time to get back to ladies......poor irish.....

    So, we win this meaningless game. Some notes:
    • Siva played almost 15 minutes. Hit 3/4 from deep.
    • Solid double-doubles from Moose and Dre with 21/13 and 19/17. They both had two steals and Dre also had 2 blocks.
    • Stuckey led everybody with 29 points. Almost a double-double with 8 TOs.
    • Jennings chucked his way to 7 pts (3/10 FG%)
    • JJ had 8/8.
    • Singer was terrible shooting 1/6 for 2 pts.
    • No Mitchell, Luigi or CV.

    Interesting how much better the bench got with Siva instead of Bynum.

    Could not find the game on TV. Maybe since it was rescheduled they did not have the contractual obligation to show it.

    The Pistons, even Jennings, did seem a little more normal looking without Smith. Maybe that was just the Kremlin-esque broadcast I was watching though.

    Siva looked good again.

    What does it say about your league when neither team decides to show the game on TV?

    My report. Delayed due to the fact staying up to listen to the game was my limit. Been mostly sleeping since. Still, I will be brief.

    Singler started at small forward, since Smith was out with tendinitus in his knee. We got out to a lead with Monroe hitting a couple of shots and Drummonds scoring a bunch. After 3 minutes, we were up 8.

    Singler came out of the game 1:23 of 1st, with us up 7. Singler scored his only two points of the game by this time.

    Singler came back in the game 8:23 of the 2nd. We were up 13, 45-32, at that point.

    Singler played the rest of the first half, where we lost 7 points of the lead. Singler was plus zero at this point.

    Same starters for start of the 2nd half. From 6 up, we went 4 down. Singler is now minus 10 for the game. Amazingly, compared to past actions of the coach, Singler was taken out of the game at that point, 5:37 of the 3rd, 67-71.

    Apparently, the coach was rebelling a bit, refusing to lose without trying, as he has done so many times to this point in the season.

    But he still put Singler back in with us up 1 in the 4th. We still managed to win. Some Siva triples and brilliant play by Drummond who just refused to lose, got us the win. Nothing the coach did. All the coach did at the end of the game is remove Siva after he just made that 3, for Jennings, who immediately turned the ball over.

    Atlanta had shot after shot that just would not fall. That we got out with a win was pretty amazing. Credit Stuckey also with his 29 points, including making all his free throws in the last minute. Some were out there to win a game.

    Didn't see the game since it wasn't televised. The only players who weren't positive for the game were Siva and Singler and Andre was +1. Hope this win doesn't hurt us. Winning a meaningless game and losing a draft pick is not a good thing.

    This was a very hard game to watch. The channel said it was HD, but it was the most terrible HD I've ever seen. I couldn't even get a good glimpse of my man Sheed on the bench, he was just a blur. And that announcer! He was so monotone and at one point called us 'woeful'. Hey, we might be woeful but I don't need to hear it from him. His own freakin' team didn't look all that great to me......

    The whole thing looked like a bootlegged video off of some dude's iPhone with the radio broadcast overlaid. The announcer was terrible. Kept making fun of Drummond.

    BTW: Great Singlercap Lee. ;-)

    Watched a recap of that game. Those ladies know how to ball. UConn ball movement was sick. If they had the physicality to play in the NBA, either of those teams would easily be a #3 seed in the Eastern conference.
