2-0 Without Waker

39 posts in this topic

Well this is awkward...

 

The Bobcats are 2-0 without Walker and both those wins came over teams that are above .500 (Raptors, Clippers)

 

Sessions and Pargo seem to be playing pretty well in Walker's absence.

 

Sessions vs. Toronto: 23 points, 2 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 steal

Sessions vs. Los Angeles: 10 points, 8 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 block

 

Pargo vs. Toronto: 11 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds 1 steal

Pargo vs. Los Angeles: 11 points, 2 assists, 1 rebound, 1 steal

 

Jefferson also recorded his 4th straight double-double and his 18th overall.

 

The Cats are currently in 8th place, one game up on Detroit and one game back of Brooklyn.

It is because Pargo is finally playing.

I know tee is kind of saying that in jest, but I really do think Pargo should've been getting more minutes. Honestly, I think Kemba being out has actually made Al an even bigger piece of the puzzle now, and he's doing what he was brought in here to do.

It definitely raises some weird questions.

Well it looks like it is going to be impossible to not make the playoffs, the Knicks are imploding, it is taking Cleveland longer than anyone thought to get adjusted to playing with Deng and meanwhile we just keep on winning. What is going to be bad is if the Pistons get rid of Monroe for a future 1st and fall into one of the worst eight records in the league. I think it would be okay to make the playoffs as long as we get the Detroit (prob 9th, 10th, or 15th unless they start tanking) and Portland picks but if we end up with only the late first and a second it will be a huge mistake.

5 out of our next 6 games are on the road and then we return home to play the Spurs.  

 

We then have a 6 game stretch where 3 - 3 looks possible before going on our toughest portion of the schedule all year (@San Antonio, @OKC, @Miami, and Indiana at home).

 

I don't see us doing much better than 5 - 12 over the 17 games mentioned above, but that may not be bad enough to keep us out of the playoffs in the atrocious Eastern conference.

Did I not tell you guys this like years ago? :)

 

Told you guys that Kemba is not the kind of player that we are going to struggle if he's not in the lineup.

 

Feels like I am Nostradamus. I really dont know how you guys cant see these things. I mean it's right there to see if you guys just quit blinding yourself.

We can't win a losing contest.   Everyone in the east is trying to tank.

    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
    • Saw it the other night and found it surprisingly decent. The acting was pretty damn good for a power rangers movie. Obvious plot holes are obvious and the plot advances before it's ready at times but it's not a bad movie. I thought the suits were cool but the zords looked terrible and the megazord was hideous. Would have been better off copying the original one tit for tat.
