I guess CP is just one of those guards that are allowed to push off with the off arm almost every time they drive.. It's so obvious when he does it..

Ingram time


meh. Ariza has him locked down all game. I've noticed that Ingram doesn't perform well against lengthy small forwards.


Yeah because KD, MKG, and LBJ aren't lengthy 🙄. He didn't shoot much. The team iced him. Simple as that.

Tough loss tonight. We just can't close these (bleep) games out. We lose basically on a missed defensive board with the game tied (and many opportunities prior to close it out). Lame.

Anyways, Happy New Years to all. Hopefully we'll come across more wins in 2018.

Didnt seem like that to me. Seemed like Ingram would try to do his patented drive to the basket, only to get stopped, and he would kick it bsck out.

i think people are underestimating Balls impact, it still hasnít hit me or many others Iím sure that we donít have our pure PG running the show, I think we will never know this teams potential with players either hurt or in and out of the line up.

I agree, and it was the right thing to do.. It's just not going to be there every night guys.. He's a bit limited offensively at the moment.. That'l change though.

I wanna boil that nonsense down to CP's "famous name" stiffarm and-1. I had no hopes of closing that one out after that particular BS. Refs "making it interesting" at our expense again. If our bro LakerLanny wasn't already battling the flu, he would've gotten sick from that.

Just watching a 2OT game featuring both CP and Hard-on is a win in and of itself. It's practically a chore even when the Lakers do somehow win. I was tempted not to watch the game on the 20th until the last sec. They move the needle for me in a way that even Steph and Dray don't. That is a vile, vile pair of creeps. Even McHale/Ainge and Mahorn/Laimbeer have to hate watching them. Smush and Kwame, too. Puke and Devean! They're a modern day Paul Westhead offense, 3 'n D without the D. Gaming the system to too gross a degree, imo. The worst this nu era style has to offer. NBA has no beefs with visually unappealing offense with a coach who says he wants 50 treys a game, but they did their best to counter the proliferation of defensive stalwart tactics of the Fratello Cavs and things like Derek Harper's straightarm handchecking in the mid 90s. Shortened the arc for 3 years. This crap is every bit as tacky as the Cavs were when they would bleed every shot clock down to 22 secs to slow the pace to a crawl.
