3. Went to our game against the Pels and I was supremely disappointed that AD didn't play. Any NOP fans here? I really feel for you guys, because it seems like you could have something going on if all the pieces are put into place.
A Pels fan here, and you are totally right. We would have totally won the game against Phoenix the night before if AD hadn't rolled his ankle in practice before the game, and you probably would have got to see him play (I won't even play and say we would have won that game though haha). It is so frustrating to have another season go off the rails because of injuries. I would just love to see Jrue and AD play more together. What little I've seen of Jrue I've loved. He is a great shooter, facilitator, and defender (exactly what we need on the wing). I love the parts of our team, but they've just not been able to play together and get any chemistry going. Though both Jrue and Ryan Anderson are supposedly returning soon (beginning of April). The Pels' playoff hopes are on the thinnest string right now so we need to win tonight vs. the Kings to even have any sort of hope. I don't really care if they make the playoffs or not, since they will be destroyed by the Warriors buzzsaw in the first round if they do make it, I really just want to see all of our major pieces play together again. They've played together like 2.5% of the total minutes possible over the past two seasons. The new-look Cavs (Irving, J.R. Smith, Lebron, Love, Mozgov) have played more minutes together this season alone than the main Pels group (Holiday, Gordon, Evans, Rhyno, and AD) has in the past two season COMBINED! Ugh that hurts to write.
