Great game! We haven't had a defending guard like TD since Starks and Harper. Felton looks like he's finally getting comfortable with his teammates and learning their tendencies. He should continue to be solid going forward.
Bill Walker has quietly been one of the most consistent players in preseason. He's not flashy or anything but gets the job done. He should either start or get plenty of minutes. Mason is subpar and isn't anything special IMO.
I like the combination of Mozgov and Turiaf holding down the 5. Not much offense there but they both play D and that's exactly what we need. Oviously rebounding needs to be picked up a bit.
AMARE! I remember when fan-boy posters were claiming that Lee was just as good for less money. NO NO NO MY FRIENDS. Amare changes the game when he's in there. I've tried to explain this before by saying that Lee's production was good but pretty even over the course of a game. Amare will come in and immediately reel off 8-10 straight points and swing the momentum back our way. He also gets to the line damn near all the time. Lee may be able to put up Amare-like numbers on some nights, but he is NOT Amare and does not impact the game the same way.
Amare was beast
No on rebunded
And how did Douglas give Farmar all those points???
I love Walker flying off bench into the 2 and 3.
Douglas playing the 2 but can fill in at the 1.
Multi positional Chandler and AR. Even STAT who can more than hold down at the 5.
Throw in Melo for Gallo/Chandler/1sts/Curry and we are championship gold on the up n up.
Special thanks to a forum member for helping me watch the game. It was awesome to be able to watch it as I live in Florida. TD, STAT, Walker, Felton were all awesome. Randolph, Moz and Gallo had good moments. Chandler was more ghostly then i had thought. Turiaf was what i expected and actually plays good D' and is a great cheerleader. Great game especially when the Nets made a comeback late in the game
