Davis actually showed up vs Spurs, he played decent. Enough with the hate.

another thread on here is saying that Harden wont play against us. Said Marc Stein reported it. Anybody else hear or read something like this? I know he was out last night and HOU still beat MIN with Love and Pekovic.

Yep. And Bayless, see other thread.
And Pondexter? Feh. Extension? Ha!
Gasol: fat and slow, and his injury just proves what a sissy he is. Real men don't get hurt.
Prince: washed up
Allen: shooting >55% for the year but we really know he can't shoot, right?
Randolph: Can't be any good if the Spurs can shut him down.
Joerger: Rookie coach, feh.
Calathes: can't shoot.
Franklin: obviously not good enough to play
Leuer: ditto
Miller: washed up, can't defend
Conley: barely adequate, hardly gets assists any more.

I don't know why half the people here bother watching the team.

Turn 'em all in and bring up the D-Leaguers.

Slight digression (and shameless self promotion here), but for those who will be in attendance for this game, my band The Whiskey Republic will be playing at this game!

We'll be playing early (until 6:40) and a bit at halftime, check us out if you can. Super excited, as music and the Griz are two my favorite things...GNG!

Being undefeated against California teams is nice, but being winless against Southwest Division teams is costly.

Win against a Texas foe before January would be nice.

Best of luck. If the team wins, you will be well liked.

Otherwise, be prepared for a "Trade Whiskey Republic for (some unknown Seattle band)" thread to be on this board.

Haha, indeed. Occupational hazard. Depending on the outcome, we might either get run out of town or be the toast of town along with Joerger.

I'm pretty concerned about not having Gasol, but this team has surprised us all plenty of times, it just remains to be seen if this roster with this coach can do it.

If Harden is out then we still have a chance to win because Houston is still somewhat in a state of disarray. They are not a good defensive team so I don't expect them to hurt us offensively. We have the perimeter defenders to slow them down on the outside let's just hope KK has a good game so that Dwight doesn't completely dominant us.
