    What seemed like a quality game turned into a quality rout.
    Now they go to Denver and maybe fall on their face. OK by me. I wanted this one.
    Maybe CB won't let down at his home. Since they didn't offer him a max contract.

    They shouldn't fall on their face. Starters didn't play much and will be fresh enough for tomorrow. Lots will depend on bench play in Denver. If they can hold their own, the team should be OK, if they don't then the starters will be in for too long and will get too tired.

    Nay, nay, that was before the big trade. If the bench falters now, it's Juan Epstein to the rescue.

    Our record against the Jazz is now 2-16.
    If fiqured a loss was due. 103-95 final.
    Did we learn from this loss? Maybe, Amir didn't play. No excuses for that.
    Quality loss.

    Clipper rate a 7.9 DR. Road game with sub .500 team. But we'll be rested by the 1st of March. Amir better play or there'll be a lynch mob.

    Quality win over weak comp. 103 to 73. I just worry that good team could shock them back into reality but the Sonics are next.
    About the same DR, 7.8 at home - sub .500 team.

    Quality win over the Sonics as the bench carried the day.
    I did'nt even know the Celts were up next.........
    Quality loss to Celts as cross country trip must've caused some lag in their shots. Played them well for 40 minutes.
    That was a 9.3 DR !

    At Knicks, 7.7 DR.
    Pistons score 101 but give up 97. 11 man rotation.
    Average win.

    I'm such a dork !
    I figured Philly would bring something extra. Like all sub .500 teams trying to get some street cred. by beating the incumbent Pistons. But I failed to look ahead to the next game. PURRS at the Palace ! It was a throw away game. Final was 83-82 so the Dee intensity was there as the guys warmed up for San Antone.
    .....How many times have we seen this act this year? A loser team we should go ahead and collect a "W" on beats us. Yet the next nite we wax a dominant rival.
    We took care of the Purrs.
    Anyway the 6er loss was quality. And the Purr waxing was even sweeter.
    -
    If we learned anything from the 6er game, it's playing close to the vest is too risky!

    The high scoring Nuggs at the Palace but at the Cavs tomorrow nite. What game will the Pistons be thinking about? Forget the Nuggs they're no threat. Get ready for the Cavs a serious divison foe.
    Nuggs 8.7 DR
    Cavs 9.1 DR.

    I've thought about it many times and didn't want to look stupid if it was something obvious. I finally gave in. I still don't understand it, though... :)

    A 0.0 DR = your average middles school girls team.
    A 10.0 DR = the Harlem Globetrotters in the 1960's.

    At least skim the opening threads Beer.
    The Nuggs game was garbage and a garbage win. It wasn't even real for all the learning/improvement help.
    ~136 to 120 What we couldn't defense them? But the next nite we lose 85 to 78 to a Division rival ? :frown:
    I can only hope Flip S is finding wrinkles he can save for the P/Os.

    So I guess that makes the Cavs game a garbage loss. Even a Road B-To-B doesn't cancel anything. They only traveled 90 mi. tho Cleve.

    Well what do you know. Wash waxes us, then next game they beat Shaq and Nash without Rip. Clearly they take the West teams more seriously.
    Wash was a garbage loss
    Suns game a quality win.
