    It’s true, I don’t know how these guys are fighting through this. I also honestly find it a joke that there’s going to be an All-Star game. There should have be an all star vote, sure, but just make it an “award” for this season and have no actual game

    Playing every other day for a full season is a huge danger for the players health ... The world stupid gets a whole new meaning

    The league is going to make the Grizz and Spurs play 40 games in 68 days ...

    Correct me if wrong but I thought I heard we have 7 freaking back to back games coming up over rest of the season post All Star break?

    Last night Mike Trudell broke down the remaining schedule after the ASG. March is somewhat soft bc of opponents winning %. But I think we have the most games and best teams in April. It's going to be a hell of a climb back to a repeat.

    Agreed, but I think KD said he's not playing in the AS Game. It would be cool if he and Bron just acted as coach for their respective teams. I know it won't happen, but . . .

    I'm not too worried. April shouldn't matter a whit once the playoffs start.

    Kieff is a much better player than what he's shown thus far. Unfortunately, he hasn't had consistent minutes or opportunities. On another team with consistent minutes, he could probably average 14/5. I really hope we can win a title for him again so he can get his money and not feel compelled to just win titles. Seems like he sacrificed a lot to rejoin this team.

    He's been really solid offensively since Frank moved him into the starting group, but even he admitted two games ago that his D has been s***.

    Kieff has been stepping up big time for the Lakers the past few games. Solid plays and when he is making his three point shot, he adds so much versatility out there.

    other than that dumb 3 at the end I thought he had a pretty good game

    His March numbers have been excellent 24 minutes, 10ppg, 6.3 rebs, 45% FG, 40% from 3

    Plus he has a great attitude about his role. Not a lot of guys would be this excited about reuniting with a former teammate when he knows it's going to drastically cut into his minutes.

    Him getting these minutes late into the season will be a huge confidence booster just in time for the playoffs. He was sluggish early in the season but he seems to be getting his rhythm back
