Game was sluggish in terms of controlling the ball. Understandable, since it's only the first game.

Really liked what I saw from Ross, Val, Gay, and Hansbrough. Would still like to see DeMar score more in the post area, really like that one of move he had in the 3rd. Defensively, we were great, although it should be mentioned that the Celtics didn't have their best offensive playmaker on the floor.

Looking forward to see if Val can continue to get more minutes and try to limit his foul count.


By the way guys, check these avys out for the up coming 13-14 season. Feel free to rock them:

I am both surprised by the minutes Hans the monster played and his efficiency in the paint.

I understand its preseason..no doubt...

But if this keeps up I would say he could provide important pressure on Gray for productive minutes off the bench.

I haven't seen all the games, but i've truthfully been disappointed by what i've seen out of Rudy Gay. I hope he becomes much more effient and aggressive once the season starts.

Rudy Gay will have no plays called for him, no development opportunties.

This is preseason. Work the lesser parts in.

Too early to judge.

What is perhaps more significant is that Derozan seems to be hot in scoring; this at a time when I doubt plays are being called for him frankly. His minutes should be down and touches limited in set plays as they work rotations. This "may" indicate a new assertiveness on Derozan's part which is "possibly exciting"

^^ It's not like he had any plays called for him during the season last year either. Granted, he didn't have a summer with the team but I don't really trust in Casey's ability as a coach to integrate him into the offense properly. I've seen too much of the "give the ball to Rudy and get the f*ck out of the way" offense in his tenure here. And in all honesty, he's not good enough for that play. This is Rudy Gay not Lebron James.

Fair observation... vis a vis no called plays.

I dont really disagree but I will say "wait". Or I am willing to wait.

Gay joined the team with what 20 games to play ? Further by all accounts pressure from the GM suite to throw something offensive on the floor. Bit of a pun that actually.

Gay is a self play maker. While give him the ball and let him create is an incomplete O strategy.... forcing him to constantly drive and dish or play only scripted off ball slashes to the rim is also an incomplete O strategy.

There is a lot of commentary that Gay Derozan play the same, too much duplication, too much D.

I too suspect this team will be "somewhat o challenged" but there are more coaches than Casey here.

Like I said earlier - there is a big 7 game stretch in early mid Jan with a lot of home games and mixed calibre of talented opponents. I dont think we will really know if the scribes, duplications, lack of coaching accumen on the o side is real or not till then.

Looks like we're gonna be running a lot of ISO with Derozan and Gay. Against the top teams in the league that's just not gonna cut it. But then again we are still at best a 7-8th seed if a whole hell of a lot goes right.

Nothing entertaining about those two taking a couple dribbles, pulling up and taking bad off-balance long 2 pointers all year.

I'd prefer to see lots of Jonas and them just throwing Ross out there and seeing if he can at least be a rotation player in the NBA.
