Didn't shoot that well but we got the just done vs the clippers today.
Got 41/22/11 from our bench. When they contribute like that Dame and CJ won't have to shoot the lights out. Really good win.

If our bench somehow keeps up the production through the first 12 games for the next 70 we may actually crack the 50 win mark this season.

Given any half decent run with injury I'm extremely confident in us winning 50-55 games. It's what comes after that I'm not as confident about after the last couple of years.

Celtics going to be a big test tomorrow. Important game before a long road trip.

Can’t see any reason why we can’t be the second best team in the West this year during the regular season. Rockets have really been hurt by losing Ariza and mbah a moute and their 3 balls aren’t dropping. Utah were about 8 games under .500 before they had an amazing run home last year but if you look at who they beat in that stretch I’m starting to wonder if we all overrated them. Still feel we need to upgrade our wings to be able to make any noise in the post season though.

Good win in the end.

6 game road trip coming up - LA, Minny, Wizards, NY, Bucks and GSW.

Hopefully come away 4-2.
Not often Lillard tallies double digit assists. 4-2 would be a great outcome because I still feel like there are no easy road games for us. Just don’t have the confidence yet that we are as good as our ranking in the west suggests

Should be beating NY and Wiz. Then two of Minny, Lakers, Warriors and bucks in that order.

If curry is out that will help

I'm thinking Curry will be back by our game. On the face of it I'm thinking wins vs Knicks and Zards, split Lakers and Wolves and losses vs Bucks and Warriors.

Yeah no idea, I still think Dame will play though knowing how resilient he is, rarely misses games.
Going to be a good test tomorrow. Stotts quite often promotes the third stringer to keep the rotations the same, but I doubt he’d promote Baldwin to start since he’s barely played a minute all year. If by chance Dame is out (sounds like he will play because he did a workout after practice finished) then I’d imagine they would start Seth because he can handle the ball reasonably well.

Can’t take much from beating the wizards because they’re absolute puss. Watching the minny game just reaffirmed that I’m ready to trade CJ because I’m sick of having two undersized guards and there’s no way on earth we are trading Dame (and rightfully so).

Lol hard to comprehend how we're top of the conference this far into a season...can't see it lasting much past middle of this week unfortunately.

Looked amazing for the first 8 and a bit minutes of the game but then conceded a 15 - 0 run. So hot and cold in a short period of time.

Our Ceiling will always be capped whilst CJ is one of the top 20 highest paid players in the league and he's only our 2nd best guard.

Said it to a mate a bit over a year ago and he thought i was nuts but will say it again. No team (including us obviously) will win a title with CJ starting at SG. But he would be a perfect combo guard coming off the bench.

Average w against the Wizards. Again we just about give up 110 or more. Defense is not good enough. We just lose control of games.
