Watching the Nuggs vs. Clips. They are a TEAM, Euro style. Shooting the three well vs. the Clips but the Clips are in the game because they are 6/9 from three so far in the THIRD QUARTER, 50% for the game. The Nuggs shoot a lot of jump shots, but they have very good ball movement; they get guys the ball where they are most effective. They get to the rim regularly as well. They are the perfect team to lull us into another jump-shooting fest, so we have to be very proactive!

No offense, but it's fans like you that are going to make Heisley take relocation as a serious possibility once it becomes an option. The team falls into a slump, and half the fan base abandons them (until they start winning again). Real fans support a team regardless of how they're currently playing.

There are WAY too many bandwagon fans in Grizz nation. It really makes me sad.

Gallinari is a much better player on a much better contract.

Wish the team get back on track and Rudy someway somehow realize that we need him as a D player, as a rebounder more than a scorer; yes he need to score but he should make it naturaly, and in the team concept... on't force thiong and make the big shots like you always does but calm down... dont' try to be KD that you can't...you will fail. I wish he could be the Pippen comparasion that he once got... but for that he would have to be able to sacrifice his game for the team. Can he make that?

I am a die hard fan and even though I was given these tickets I would have to pay a baby sitter, pay to park, pay 8.50 per beer. Why would I want to do that for a team that doesn't care to show up half the time? I have spent thousands of dollars supporting this team over the years. All I got in return was a false sense of hope last season that maybe this franchise was a contender.

I don't know - it is on national TV. It isn't exactly a marquee game, but it is national, so I think he'll come with more than his slaw game like tonight (which, I think he probably was saving his energy for tomorrow).

I can solve your problem (for tomorrow night) for you by taking those tickets off of your hands for FREE! :lol:

Denver is not a great rebounding team but they have 6 scorers (Gallinari, Lawson, Harrington, Nene, Afflalo & Miller). If Grizz outrebounds Denver then we can hope they miss the 15-footers and not get Grizz in foul trouble on their attacks at the basket.
Grizz can not beat them at shooting because they have more consistent shooters so don't foul, outrebound and defend tight and Grizz might have a chance.
Oh, 1 more thing, don't play soft in the first half then expect to come back with this team.

Lilojmayo,

I think you have a point. Coach Hollins needs to say ok guys I'm going with this starting 5.

Conely, OJ, Tony Allen, Spreights, and Gasol.

Send a message that Rudy regardless of your slump, I'm not starting a player who doesn't show heart, grit or grind on the floor. Push OJ buttons and established that he is the man and if he wants this team to be his now is the time to embrace that role. Nobody wants to be the leader of this team and this will make OJ rise to the top. I would tell OJ this Franchise believes in you and now go out and get me a win and lead your team to victory!!!!

I'm fired up just typing this now!!!!

Sign,

Mr. Stephen Aye

Preview for tonight's game is up on the site:

http://www.deepfried...denver-nuggets/

Also. If you care to even remember last nights recap is up too:

http://www.deepfried...zz-recap-uh-oh/

I think after last night tonight's game became much more important. If nothing else to get the teams morale back up.

Is Afflalo playing tonight? I read somewhere he might not play due to some sort of nagging injury.

PS: Imo, tonight we will see the best coached team in the league .
