    Yes! That right there is the team I expected to see this season. Playing with passion, defensive intensity, moving the ball, getting easy buckets. Play like this with consistency, they might just make themselves a little more attractive.

    Fun game tonight and moved up a bit in the standings. Good to see back to back wins. Hopefully we can get three in a row.

    Our projected starting line up does well again.

    Although... I would love to replace KCP with Kuz and switch BI down a position.

    KCP is out of jail. Boom goes the dynamite. :Laugh: This starting unit is picking up steam with Randle at the four and a pissed off Lopez wanting to play well again. Oh and Lonzo is looking more and more comfortable by the month.

    I hope we don't take that game for granted if all those guys do indeed miss the game. We've already let our guards down this year when a quality team like the Spurs is our next game without their players and we don't play well.

    Also, nice to see Jeanie excited about our recent play

    I’d certainly hope so, but it is the Spurs, it’s next man up with them, they’re a well-oiled machine. Watch Aldridge, Pau, and Mills doninate and Ginobili go off for 40 or something.

    Or is just like Kerr wants to help Luke to his feet and is sitting some of his guys. I don't think this is what is happening but it adds to the curiosity.
