      Martin should be the starting PF. He will be more effective starting the game and setting the tone, rather than coming off the bench when they are inevitably losing in the 1st quarter like usual.

      Damn Suns couldn’t pull one out against BKN last night – that would really have been a good thing for us – would’ve put us 4 games up in the loss column with 14 to play for us (and 12 to play fort hem). Right now we’re really only 2 games up because they probably have the tiebreaker (division record).

      Meanwhile how awesome are the Western Conference 1st round playoffs going to be? If they were to start today, the matchups would be:

      SA vs. Lakers
      OKC vs. GSW
      Denver vs. Houston (I’d stay up to watch that one)
      Clips vs. Memphis

      Wow.

      Wow is right

      PHX played dumb basketball down the stretch, should have won that game. No surprise that they are the worst team in the WC.

      Yeah, Boston w/o Garnett and Memphis possibly w/o Gasol would be two huge breaks.

      We could definitely use a couple of breaks to go our way.

    6. Frank

      And reading the comments from Doc – sounds like Garnett won’t play Sunday either… these are breaks we HAVE to take advantage of.

      Of course if we do win those games, our beloved beat writers will be sure to put an * next to the victory and point out that Boston and Memphis were shorthanded (as opposed to our always 100% healthy squad)

      (Also love the way Berman has to use the word “lowly” in every headline when we beat a sub .500 team)

      Funny thing about KG being out for the next 2 weeks is that it probably cements them as the 7 seed and if the Knicks can beat them twice this week because KG is out it will help the Knicks pursuit of the 2 seed (Indiana has a real tough stretch of games coming up).

      Knicks-Celtics 1st round 2/7 matchup?? Cant wait!! lol

      yeah I’d actually rather play the Celtics than the Bulls. I don’t want any part of Noah + Gibson inside, nor do I want to see Thibodeau anywhere near the Garden.

      Yeah, Id much prefer the Celtics to the Bulls. Probably prefer the Celtics to the Nets but not sure since I dont fear the Nets at all. Will say this, beating the Celtics in the 1st round would be sweet as hell.
