Oh I just noticed this game thread is already up Lightning fast!

Per Goon

Darvin Ham said he’s going to stick to the plan not to play AD, LeBron or Russ tomorrow. Patrick Beverley is “50-50” for tomorrow’s game against his former team Minnesota.

The Wolves will get no sleep Wednesday night.

At least the non-starters will get a chance to get some much needed experience playing together.
This also should give the coaches time and plenty of film to evaluate reserve personnel.

What is up with this back to back and 3 games in 4 nights stuff during preseason anyway? It kind of defeats the purpose of preseason if the players aren’t even available to play.

Maybe the team agreed to this but in the past it seems like there has usually been a solid effort to make these games as easy as possible (spaced out games, typically all at home, and mostly against the bad teams)

I think it’s because this is once again in Vegas. So makes sense to play back to back nights.

Imo in general sports preseasons now are all about end of roster position battles and the starters and rotation players in all sports basically use the first few weeks of the regular season as their preseason.

He said "all 82 games"

Not 88 games. Lol

I get it, but if 82 is truly a goal of his then playing when he’s got some soreness is going to be part of it. Resting when you’re sore makes it worse. Playing in the preseason sets the tone for the regular season. It was too much to play a half of basketball? And he needs tonight off as well?

Yeahno I was just joking. It is disappointing to be back here again fo sho. IF he'd played last night he wasn't going to play tonight as a "precautionary measure". I'm hoping the thought is getting folks ready for the GSW trip on Sunday? (I hope)

Pre-season is a low priority. Sure, wins are nice but it is just about chemistry and attempting to get an idea of rotations or fit of bench players.

It is glorified practice.

Regular season, game one is the biggest and only issue. Then getting through the next 81… one game at a time.

Team has a lot to prove.

Are you sure about that? It’s 2 anemic offenses

Although, the Denver Broncos have no excuse with the talent they have. Nathaniel Hackett is like the Luke Walton of nfl head coaches…not ready for the role.

It pays to sign with Klutch. They will just funnel you to one of their flagship teams and you get to rehab/take time off on company time. Shaq would have loved to be a Klutch client.

I’ll do what I always do. I record, then fast forward as my attention wavers.

I agree, all the Bronco hype surrounding Hackett and Wilson has certainly fallen on its face. And I say that as a Bronco fan watching it play out.

I have the same opinion of both my favorite teams, tired of the rhetoric just prove it on the court and field!

If nothing else, still have the Avs.
