Default First Game Analysis

Halftime right now.

So far:

-Artest has got into Gay's head and he's missed some easy shots

-Mayo has been chucking unbelievably, but he's played solid defense.

-Gasol hasn't been scoring alot but he's been playing solid D as well.

-Darrell Arthur is a good rebounder and may work his way into the starting line-up pretty soon.

-Milicic and Warrick haven't done much of nothing
-------------------------------------------
Second Half:

-Mike Miller will truly be missed. We couldn't make a three to save our lives.

-Darrell Arthur had 15 boards

-Mayo continued to chuck

We'll get better. At least we'll get better from 3. Mayo's a better player than tonight, and so is Rudy.

I didn't see the game, so I'm just going by the boxscore, so correct me if I'm wrong.

Mayo shouldn't have took so many shots. I mentioned yesterday that he's the kind of player that will keep shooting to try and get out of a shooting slump, that won't work.

Arthur and Gasol looked good on the boards? Arthur with 15 and Gasol with 12, not to mention that both of them had 11 points and 12 points, respectively. Nice, a double double for both of them, in their debut game. Both of them also had 2 blocks.

Gay only had 1 assist? Was he passing much?

What was Lowry like? Did he looke like he had control over the team when he came on, or was he just looking for his shot?

Both teams were just playing good defense. Not to mention opening night jitters. I would expect mayo to explode for 20 plus in the home opener friday night. Which I will be attending most likely court side thank you very much. Because a girl I know is dating marc gasol and I should be getting his tickets.

I thiought the team fought real hard. Arthur should start. Millic will never be anything more than a big body. And warrik never seems to be able to put together an all around good game consistently.

Will Arthur be capable of being a starter? I think he might serve well as being an energy guy off the bench and working his way into the starting lineup sometime between Christmas and the All-Star break.

yeap, we need Arthur coming off the bench, at least for the moment. Our bench is more than weak, a second unit with Lowry, Ross, Arthur/Warrick, Jaric is bad. It is a bad surprise that Warrick seems to be unable to be consistent at all, when this should be his season. I know it is only the first game, but he hasn't shown anything in the preseason either.

BTW, jailer, how is the chick? Just curious

It seems that Warrick is in a slump at the moment, so keeping Arthur on the bench for the time being, would probably be the best option. Hopefully Warrick gets himself out of this slump soon.

How did Darko play? I'm thinking he probably got 2 quick fouls and just sucked the rest of the game.

I'm really surprised about D.A., no one in this board was talking about him up until last night.

She was cute. But to be honest I was a little drunk, so my memories not that good. Marc was real cool though. A little shy but nice. He paid for alot of our drinks. The girl is a friend of friend. Not exactly my friend only met her once. Im friends with one of her friends if that makes sense.
