The refs stunk up the joint again. We can't lose our composure with this though. This is one that slipped away. Def winnable. All you can hope is it doesn't haunt us at the postseason positioning....I felt Cope should had gotten minutes as well as more minutes for Camby and Prigs. Whats going on with Novack? i never cared much for Brewer so, wont comment
2012-2013 Raymond Felton Player Performance and News Thread
2012-13 Mike Woodson Coaching Performance Thread
Do We Really Have a Chance?
because everyone needs to know your opinion.
Why were three guards playing so much against the Lakers' starting front-court? Kurt Thomas and Camby should have been playing together in the last few minutes. I like Felton, but in the last few minutes it should have been Kidd, Smith, Melo, Thomas, and Camby after Chandler fouled out.
I HOPE Camby and Chandler start eventually.
I'm just peeved that we lost a game we should have one. Am i entitled to express that or not. As much as this forum talks entertains the same redundant for YEARS and I'm gettin grief from this. Let's chalk it up to frustration over the Christmas loss and be friends shall we?

Have a wicked Xmas, homes. All the best for the New Year as well. Eat a Batclit. ♥ Crazy.
No reason to be upset, being mad at the return of Nash and not Amare for the Xmas game is understandable.
Howard, Gasol, Meta, Kobe, and Nash were not only suppose to get Tyson Chandler to foul out, but Tyson was suppose to be in foul trouble the first 6 minutes into the game if Lakers had a real NBA headcoach.
Certain things were confirm in the Xmas game vs Lakers ....
1) Dantoni is a BUM coach/Pau Gasol need to retire from NBA
2) Felton is a tier-2 PG with no creative moves for teammates to score
If our 28 games were a test toward a Starter/Finisher PG, Felton failed the test 15 games in the season .. the luxury of having 3 PG in our 28 game rotation save us from losing a lot of winning-games where we didnt have to depend soley on a tier-2 PG.
Raymond Felton has worked his way back into being traded on the February deadline .. was Portland coach wrong lastseason for taking Felton out of the starting lineup when Felton & his ex-teammate Gerald Wallace didnt click on either side of the court?
Steve Nash will probably get D'antoni into the NBA hall of fame with how he is able to make this horrible coach look like Red Holzman all of a sudden.
I really don't understand why Lakers fans and the media were pressing the panic button when the Lakers were struggling. We have seen this same script in LaLa land since the Shaq days: The Lakers assemble the most talented roster, get off to a slow start, everyone makes a big deal out of it, but they find a way to win an NBA championship.
As much as I've wanted to kick D'antoni and the Lakers when they were down I had a feeling that once Steve Nash came back that they were going to be the best team in the NBA again.
I think that Woodson is a great coach, I love the guy but I`m starting to worry about his rotation.
Kurt Thomas started the game really well and gave us good minutes, defending well, spacing the floor and scoring. Then he sits in the first quarter and we don`t see him again.
Marcus Camby also looked good in the first half but we didn`t see him again until Tyson fouled out. Why was Tyson left in to foul out and not have Camby get more minutes so that Tyson could have finished the game?
Every time that Chris Copeland has played for us he has played well and always given us a spark and scored well. He seems to have some good moves to the basket, can post up and hit the three. He has vanished completely from the rotation.
No Prigioni, where has Pablo gone? Again, he has played well and his understanding with Copeland on the pick and roll has been brilliant and could be a potent weapon for us when the starters take a seat. Watching Ray. Felton playing so many minutes with his hurt hands and his dreadful shooting is vexing when Kidd and Prigioni could be doing a better job.
I think that coach needs to go a little deeper to his bench because we are not using the talent we have available. Before the season started eveybody was talking about the great depth that we have but we only have depth if it is used. Amare should be back soon and hopefully we will see Shumpert back some time this January so our depth will be stronger still but only if coach uses it.
