They should definately beat Minnesota and NY. I don't think NY got any better with those trades. Al Harrington isn't someone who scares me. All they did was free up cap space. IMO Randolph is a much better post player. Milwaukee is actually a decent team, but Detroit should win that game at home. Portland is a team that can be tough. They have a big front line and athletic guards. They can play with anyone in the league. I really think it's possible to go 4-0, but I could live with 3-1.
Amir Jhonson will start today instead of Kwame brown.According to news, curry is planning to start Amir Jhonson against teams that have small frontcourt.
Sheed will slide to center then from playing power forward.
They didn't just lose they got killed. It actually concerns me a bit that they lost. It's not that I expect them to never lose a game, but the fact they got killed reminds me of the Pistons over the past few years who will just take a night off. Come playoff time when Detroit takes a night off it's the most frustrating thing in the world. After seeing Rondo and Foye light up Detroit it's obvious our defense isn't better. I would think when we need a defensive presence we would see Stuckey and Hamilton in the back court. I know Stuckey has pretty much been a flop this year but I'd like to see him have more of a role. Let's give him a little more confidence and see what happens. We really need him defensively because Iverson hasn't proved he knows how to play any.
"I have been struggling," said Stuckey, who had his first career double-double with 13 points and 11 assists. "Part of the reason I was struggling was my (right) wrist was still bothering me. My strength is coming back in the wrist to the point where I can play and not worry about reinjuring it."
Stuckey hurt the wrist in Phoenix, taking a flagrant foul from Shaquille O'Neal.
"It was impacting everything I did with my right hand," Stuckey said. "But it's all good now."
AI wont start, he could possibly as well not play the game at alll. It shouldnt be a problem tho IMO. Bucks could be without michael redd & bogut. Their top scorer + rebounder.
On other hand Stuckey complaning of injury for his bad spell. Hope he is getting it on now..
