Point guard play last night was atrocious. Ridnour took poor shot after poor shot and refused to find the hot hand. Beasely made to many mistakes, but he MUST BE IN THE GAME that final possession in regualtion...instead you stay with Brewer and let Ridnour throw one up as a prayer? Come on Rambis...Jackson stayed with Jordan...I know that might be a poor comparison, but Beasly is your best playmaker!

great game by many players. Good to see Love, Darko and others play well. Once Flynn comes back and Johnson starts shooting like he can this team could be .500 the rest of the way. I like the progress under Rambis, my expectations are reasonable similar to the coach. They are still learning to finish games and will show that close-out capability soon. Run your O and play tough D and good things will happen.

The refs certainly had a hand in closing the gap last night. Game after game, the NBA memo to the refs seems to be "keep it close no matter what, no matter how you do it." It's like watching the WWF. Not scripted, but it may as well be.

Ridnour made a LOT of stupid choices last night. Namely one possession late in the game where he hoisted up a 3 with over 15 seconds left on the shot clock. He's proving to be the liability he was in Milwaukee. "Veteran" player on the squad being the most selfish and shoot-first. Telfair should have been in there. Wes Johnson- please guard your man at the 3 point line. Thank you.

Love is a beast, but man, he's taking a beating. He can't keep this up.

Patience was the key, and Paupavich exhibited it better than Rambis. San Antonio is an old team, and Rambis should have worn them out with fresh legs.

Oh- at least they are COMPETITIVE each game for the most part and entirely watchable. Progress seems to be rearing its head. I'll watch every night if there is EFFORT, and there is for the first time in a long time.

Rambis must get Ridnour to pass the ball instead of taking all those dumb shots he takes. And quit taking Beasley out so much towards the end of the game. He's much needed at that time.

Continue the hard work and in a year or two you will contend. The team, like the Twins teams of past, has a lot of talent still learning the pro game; and Rubio should be nice addition at point come next year.
