I thought they looked much better as a team tonight without having to sit and watch Blake or Rose clog things up and go one on one all night long.  Stewart got a nice run and looked active on the boards.  Bey took his chances.  Killian almost had a double double.  Sekou only played 10 minutes but he was coming off an injury.  Jackson and Grant looked good too.

Look, this team is bad.  They aren't going to win a lot of games, but if the rookies continue to show their activity and hustle like they did tonight, I'll be fine with this year.

No need to have Blake, Okafor, and Rose sucking up 30 minutes a night instead of letting the young fellas run.

The only lead the had was early, a 5-0 start.  They started to collapse with a few minutes left in the first half, but kept the deficit to single digits going into the break.  They struggle late in the 3rd and were down 20 early in the 4th, but managed to make a game of it in the end.  The defense was bad, but it didn't seem as though they gave up.

Yes, its a bad team, and its an unfamiliar team.  Only 4 holdovers, and 2 of those were out last night.  Pretty sure I saw a "Hello, my name is ...." sticker on a few of the warm up jackets.

Develop the kids, play hard & smart, hopefully turn over an older guy or two for futures at some point this season.  That's it, those are goals, plain and simple.

Watching Grant make people STFU about him being overpaid is a lot of fun.

And with that comment he will shoot 2-17 with 8 points tonight.

If he maintains his high level of efficiency while continuing to play good defense, he is worth every penny.

Be nice if he created a little more for others but that has never been his thing.  He is a 3rd or 4th option on a title contender.

he'll be up against a really bad team tonight.  although we'll see if he can repeat it with blake and rose clogging up possessions.

I watched the first 5 minutes or so this morning on recording and that starting lineup was so refreshing.  Ball movement, moving without the ball, high energy from all 5 on both ends. Nice 3's from Bey and Hayes.

That starting 5 plus a primary bench of Wright, Svi, Sekou & Stewart (and maybe Lee or Frank Jackson) would be fun to watch with an eye on the future.

Kind of funny you mention those 5 minutes of Bey.  I thought he looked bad after that.  Bad shots, bad decisions.  Still active, so there is something to work with there.

Wright looked active as well.  A couple of bad fouls, but I like the way he moved around.

Hayes..... man, I hope he doesn't get overwhelmed.

The energy was good to see.  That didn't falter, even when the looked like they were about to be run out of there.  Its something to work with.

Ah, I guess I saw the best 5 minutes, then!  I like Bey and think he'll work out fine but needs minutes.  Hayes I feel better about after last night's game; trying to be optimistic with it being so early on.  Tough back-to-back draws for Hayes with Young and now Curry.
