  • Everyone's excited for the new era.
Really excited for the Nuggets-Blazers game tonight.  Great matchups across the board.

Hornets did well over Philly. Pacers leading the Bulls at the moment. Catch up Raptors!
I moved the cheese.

Grieves Vasquez is a good playmaker for the Hornets. This makes Gordon a two guard in their lineup.

BTW, Go Raptors! Go Houston!
Peavey Bass Player - relearning to play after 10 years sucks;

Looking forward to the MIL-LA game. Lakers have had trouble with faster, athletic teams this season - and MIL fits the bill.

Lakers lose tonight, and then they have MIA coming to town on Thur. I'm cheering for MIA in that game.

If the Lakers lose tonight and Thur, they are in even more serious trouble than they are now.

It'll be interesting to see how Larry Sanders deals with Dwight Howard defensively.

If Dwight were completely healthy, which he hasn't been all season, then I don't think Sanders could deal with him.

But now? Plus add in the fact that Sanders has improved and is playing with confidence?

Lakers will have a load on their hands up front.

Add in John Henson's play here lately and it could be tough going for the Lakers tonight. Sanders and Henson, while both rather thin - are extremely long and athletic.

Sanders doesn't mind banging, either...hopefully, the refs will let them play.

Dwight doesn't need to be fully healthy for me.

I am only interested in seeing how Sanders handles Dwight's physicality in the paint. Whether Sanders can defend him one-on-one and whether he can box Dwight out. Or if Dwight will just push him out of the way whenever he wants to and get easy hoop and offensive rebounds.

I am not interested in what Sanders does on the other end ... this matchup is interesting to me just as a gauge for where Sanders is as both a defender / rebounder as a starting center.

I think Milwaukee should go with Przybilla against Dwight rather than Udoh.

Udoh is too small defensively. Weak rebounder.

Lakers up by 11 with a fast start but this lead will probably vanish by halftime. They usually start hot and let teams back in.

I don't understand. Why are none of  Kobe, Nash or Dwight on the floor? Why rest them all at the same time? Does D'Antoni not understand how bad his bench is? And the Lakers wonder where their lead went to. Terrible coaching.

PG: D.Morris
SG: Duhon
SF: E.Clark
PF: Jamison
C:  Sacre

16-6 run by Milwaukee now.

I really do hate D'Antoni. One dimensional and thoroughly mediocre head coach.

What a waste.

That was a beautiful block by L.Sanders on Kobe's baseline drive and dunk attempt.
