Solid away win today vs the clips. This team is a tease at times.
We need to appreciate Dame as he should go down as one of best blazers ever
Made hard work of it late but any road win vs a .500+ team for us is a huge result. Yes Dame is a star would be gold if we could build a team around him that was capable of competing.

Bench showed up again today vs the Grizz and what a difference it makes, ultimately we don't have enough to do anything in playoffs but nice to see us playing decent again.

Get the feeling Golden State will want to get us back today for our win at The Oracle a couple of days ago.

If by some miracle this team could turn its spare parts into a stretch 4 that could actually shoot the wide open 3 and make teams pay, they’d be on a whole different level. The difference between when Aminu/Harkless are efficient and not is night and day. I’m not entirely sure who the player to fill that role is, but that’s what Neil should be looking for. Pity we drafted Swanigan and not Kuzma.

Nurk was immense today.

Nurk with a 24-23-7-5-5 game, the first player to record 20+points, 20+ rebounds, 5+assists, 5+blocks and 5+ steals since 1983-1984. All this came in an overtime wins vs the Kings also.
He was amazing today, Need more games out of him like this, especially today when Dame was out of sorts.

Chief was huge in the third with those three pointers when everyone else had gone cold

5 game home stand now, starting tough with OKC and Houston but then 3 pretty favourable matchups following.

Lost against OKC, CJ with another one of those more shots attempted than points scored nights.

It really is looking like another one of those mid 40 wins seasons and out in the 1st round, not that surprising I suppose with very limited change to the roster over the last 3-4 years.

I just wish that with the way Nurk is playing (hopefully he keeps it up) we would look to deal CJ in part of a package for a difference making wing. Surely if he stays at this level for the remainder of the season nurk will be considered our second best player and we can finally trade CJ and round out the squad better

Yeah Sadly I'm not sure how much we'd get for CJ, doesn't he still have 2.5 seasons to run on a 25 million dollar contract ? If we're being honest he's basically a rich mans Jamal Crawford.
