@Duckface.gif @_justin It wasn't up to Harden. It was up to us. That's what RFA means.

@_justin @Duckface.gif People make crazy assumptions to try to come up with some reason that Occam's razor doesn't give you for why Harden is not on this team anymore. Clay Bennett was not willing to pay to give Durant the best supporting cast possible.

The fact that Perkins started over Adams in the playoffs is MINDBLOWING

We only have one scorer healthy on the roster.

@harmlesslyfatal @mattchant That's the thing, sometimes we're gonna lose leads off the bench. We need Reggie to be effective, and if he's not, it'll be a problem. We're not used to a .500 type team around here, but that's what we have right now.

@harmlesslyfatal @mattchant Our bench is going to be thin. That's what happens when you lose KD. Keeping Russ as effective as possible for his minutes on the floor needs to be our priority offensively.

@harmlesslyfatal You want to watch Russ try to drive into a packed lane every possession? Or give up on the idea and jack up 3's?

1 week, 5 days ago on Monday Bolts – 10.13.14

@harmlesslyfatal Why not? Russ needs floor spacing to be effective, so Morrow needs to start. Overall, that's a strong defensive lineup.

@PostBeardStressDisorder We've figured that out and the answer is no. He averages 10 and 5 per 36 on bad shooting. There's nothing there.

Lowe's article nails it. If this is really a 15-20 game injury, we'll be all right. Will probably cost us HCA, which might cost us in the playoffs, but grand scheme, we're alright. If it's longer and goes into January though? Or if there's reinjury, as is pretty common with this break? That would be brutal.

@Jooseppi @mattchant I agree, but teams won't just leave Jackson, or (gulp) Lamb, wide open. They will with Robes.

1 week, 6 days ago on Kevin Durant likely out 6-8 weeks with ‘Jones fracture’

Reply

@Jooseppi @mattchant We need the floor to be spaced for Russ to be most effective. This is Russ's team, and the lineup needs to be designed around what he brings to the table. He needs shooters on the wing, and an open lane to drive.

@Jooseppi @mattchant It'll take two. Let Ibaka guard the rim.

@Jooseppi Nah, its way more important to replace KD's scoring than his defense. That's the problem right now.

@ERROR72 I mean, Russ's supporting cast blows for the "this is Russ's team" scenario. He just has to keep us afloat.

If Brooks insists on keeping Robes in the starting lineup, starting Morrow for KD would make sense. Keep floor spacing intact for Russ at least. If we put out a bunch of non-shooters with a clogged lane for Russ, we're gonna have a bad time with pull-up 3's.

@Marko (Lacoste baby) @mattchant I don't really agree, I think particularly with Memphis, we should just outscore them. Perk is effective, but lends us to playing their game.

This is what I think our playoff minute allocation should be, assuming this is the roster.


Kevin Durant- 42

Russell Westbrook- 39

Serge Ibaka- 38

Reggie Jackson- 35

Steven Adams- 30

Anthony Morrow- 20

Andre Roberson- 20

Mitch McGary- 12

Kendrick Perkins- 10

@_justin @mattchant Perkins will play less than Adams bar injury, that already happened in the playoffs last year. Fact is, we need Adams offense in the starting lineup.
