    Would be a great sign to go in there tomorrow and beat them (C Bags). At the very least if a loss still serve notice with a hard fought and back and forth game all night.

    Would like a mulligan for opening night against the Clippers with this young buck of a work-in-progress team vs having Bambi at that point in time.

    Hey, will you look at that, we are entertaining. Defense has been really good and our offense looks to finally be clicking with the recent line up change and tighter 9 man rotation. We beat a team that is #4 in the west that is still a good defensive team.

    Sorry Nance but Kuzma has taken your starting gig. He makes our starters so much better.

    JC and Randle showed great chemistry in the second quarter, keeping us in the game with a string of baskets between the two.

    Ingram pulled us away towards the end of the second by slicing and dicing Marc in the paint and Marc ain't no slouch defensively.

    KCP injury scare kind of slowed us down there but he and BroLo provided the vet/clutch plays we needed to pull away at the end. They were paired with our youngest players to close out the game.

    3-1 would be great and 2-2 would be just fine, but I only care about one game right now and tip off is at 5:00 p.m. PT, Wednesday.

    As much as I'd like that, realistically I'd say best case scenario is 2-2. Drop the first pair, win the second.
