Agreed....you gotta show up against your closest conference rivals. Plus, we play to win.

What a solid game. Man the Klaw is a beast! #we'rehere

the value is that we could beat them … it's an important game that could decide a tiebreaker. 

You can rationalize it any way you want it, but a team that has green, lowry and ibaka is going to be better than a team without them, so we'd have a much better chance. We beat gsw on a b2b with that lineup, although we did have JV. 

This is not about proving or disproving anything, just trying to get a W.


Really narrow interpretation of what I'm saying. I also want wins, many wins, more wins than ever. Just don't think this is one game to chase but one game to use and rest our veterans to make sure their health improves and stays improved and we get all the Ws in the near future.

I get that point, but if they are healthy, they should be playing - I just questioned the need to rest them, they got quite a bit of rest already.

I'm definitely not advocating playing them even if they're still hurt.

Ibaka had knee swelling and Lowry had thigh contusion that was strong enough to cause back spasms. Neither sounds good or that quick to heal, I'd give it time even if they are good to go, increase the chances they are 100% next time we play.  Green is probably fine.

They might play, maybe that was the plan, see how he game goes without them against Cavs, play Leonard if need be, rest him otherwise. But since we are playing it safe with Kawhi, I'd do the same with Lowry and Ibaka.

Yeah, I think rest is being mixed up with being injured and/or banged up.

I still expect whoever is able to suit up to bring it tonight!
