Would be great to have JV back for this one.

Agreed.
 

Looking forward to this game and to getting back on the winning track.

Im looking at the matchups, and they dont look pretty for us...if JV is available I guess he has Adams, does BC have Zion, and Kyle on Ingram...or do we insert Tillman to see what he's got against Zion or Adams?

Tillman should be our new starter from now on...trade JV

Either those starters with Ja have to start making 3s or there needs to be a modification of the starting lineup until JJJ gets back (besides starting JV).  DB, KA and BC can hit an open 3 pointer, none are really good 3 point shooters right now.

Kyle is the highest % at 34%.

Meanwhile, the 2nd unit that plays with Tyus has 3 guys over 45% (Dieng, Bane, Konchar) and another guy at 42% (Melton)

Jonas off of Covid protocols. Grayso also, but let’s hope the wing rotations don’t change. 
 

 

If Clarke is out I hope they downshift SloMo and Dillon and start Bane at the 2.

I saw this on Twitter this morning, knew it was sent yesterday afternoon, and I thought I had missed the game last night

(because that tweet has wrong date on it, and the game is on 6th)

It think I get your point. But the Grizz PR tweet wasn’t naming a game date.
NBA teams are required to publish an injury report by 5:00 local time the day before a game. Unless game is 2nd of a back to back. So Feb. 5th was correct date.

No.

Grizz PR always has listed the day of the game, not the date of the tweet, except for the one above (thus the mild heart attack given to me). All these have day of game, not day of report, in Grizz PR injury report and are not on B2B game (example on first one, tweeted on 2/3, but mentions 2/4 game):

JV is going to be rusty as s***

 

For board sanity, what we need is to have him play just good enough.

 

If he plays too well, we will get too many posts by the fanboys commenting "Trade JV?".

If he doesn't play well enough, we will get too many posts from the trade everybody crowd commenting "Trade JV!".

....ahh...who am I kidding, all those will show up anyways.

Feed him (JV) a few right in the paint - early.

He hits a few grown man shots and forces Zion to try to bang with him - hopefully he can bait him into a couple of reaching fouls.

Set the tone.

IF Ingram gets hot - we will have to match his intensity.

Seems like everybody is kind of sleeping on Ball but he can get his guys some good looks.

Ja is coming off of a bad game -> I can’t wait to see how he responds.

Throw it up already !

They’ve owned us recently. We really need a win here. Ja needs to come out engaged, not deferring and then trying to turn it on down double digits.
