Pre-Season GameDay 2
(all games on neutral courts)
*R=rookie player

-Voting Is Open

- Remember all pre-season games are played on a neutral court.

-Remember from now on for any vote to be counted the explanation needs to be detailed and appear as a paragraph.  If I can type up an extremely long analysis of each game in 3 or so minutes I think people can at least write a 5 sentence or so give an explanation.  1 or 2 sentence analysis won't be counted.

-If you can only do a few at the moment go ahead and post it; then just add a bold "Edit: Will Finish Soon" type of note on the bottom.  We will count your votes, even if you only do a few games by the time we close voting, as long as they meet the explanation requirements.  We'd rather have you vote on less games if it means you will at least write a solid explanation for each.

-This is too many rules; I really don't see it as a problem for each GM to write a small paragraph for each game explaining their decision.........

-Gracias.

1vs
Boston
PG: TJ Ford / Gabe Pruitt
SG: Raja Bell / Bill Walker
SF: Paul Pierce / James Jones
PF: Kevin Garnett / Carl Landry
C: Kendrick Perkins / Carl Landry / Patrick O'Bryant

Golden State
PG: Chris Duhon / Kyle Lowry / Javaris Crittenton
SG: Manu Ginobili / Von Wafer
SF: Martell Webster / Tony Allen / Michael Finley
PF: Hakim Warrick / Brandan Wright / Craig Brackins
C: Chris Andersen / Brandan Wright / Hamed Haddadi

Vote: Boston. Golden State's frontcourt is still pretty bad even with the acquisition of Chris Andersen in free agency. By looking at both teams' frontcourts you can establish that Warrick and Andersen won't accomplish anything offensively nor defensively in this game other than the occasional hustle play. The focus of any of GS's opponents will be on stopping Manu Ginobili. With Bell and Pierce guarding on him on the perimeter and KG and Perkins waiting for him at the rim, it'll be a tiring game for Manu.

2vs
Indiana
PG: Jason Kidd / Randy Foye / Anthony Carter / Roko Ukic
SG: Brandon Roy /  Mike Miller /  Randy Foye
SF: Stephen Jackson /  Mike Miller / Jamario Moon
PF: Carlos Boozer / David West / Charlie Villanueva / Joe Smith
C:  Greg Oden / David West / Antonio McDyess

Houston
PG: Raymond Felton / Lou Williams
SG: Andre Iguodala / CJ Miles
SF: Rudy Gay / Corey Maggette
PF: Kevin Love / Glen Davis
C: Zach Randolph / Paul Davis

Vote: Indiana. I know it's just preseason but I would have liked to see Indiana put Carlos Boozer as the starting C. It works better than David West as the backup C. Houston can get Oden into foul trouble anytime they want in this game so having Oden as a starter over David West is not a positive for Indiana. Despite that, Indiana still has the better starting 5.
Corey Maggette is a very good 6th man. The way the rotation is posted, he gets limited minutes. He should be backing up Iguodala as well. His effectiveness is being put to waste. He only gets like 15 minutes of playing time so Indiana's bench is gonna kill Houston's bench.


3vs
Dallas
PG: Chris Paul / Beno Udrih
SG: Leandro Barbosa / Wally Szczerbiak / Damon Jones
SF: Caron Butler / Wally Sczerbiak
PF: Amare Stoudemire / Udonis Haslem / Juwan Howard
C:  Dwight Howard / Tony Battie

Denver
PG: Jose Calderon / Ramon Sessions
SG: OJ Mayo / Delonte West
SF: Andrei Kirilenko /  Gerald Wallace
PF: Josh Smith / Lamar Odom
C: Marcus Camby / Marc Gasol

Vote: Dallas. The Mavs shouldn't have any problems controlling this game. Calderon can't keep up with Paul. Denver would need a huge night from OJ Mayo to have a chance. If Mayo catches fire, Butler can try to cool him down. Why is Kirilenko starting over Gerlald Wallace?

4vs
Cleveland
PG: Mo Williams / Mario Chalmers
SG: Ronnie Brewer / Courtney Lee / Antoine Wright / Terrence Williams(R)
SF: Earl Clark(R) / Andres Nocioni
PF: Al Harrington / Jason Thompson / James Singleton
C:  Chris Kaman / Ronny Turiaf

LA Lakers
PG: Flip Murray / Mike James / Patrick Mills(R)
SG: Kobe Bryant / Sasha Vujacic
SF: Mike Dunleavy / Damien Wilkins
PF: Anderson Varejao / Leon Powe / Josh Powell
C: Andrew Bogut / Chuck Hayes / Josh Powell

Vote: LA. Who's the leader for the Cavs? Mo Williams? We saw how Milwaukee did when Mo Williams and Michael Redd had to lead that team. Mo can put up big numbers but he won't be making his teammates better. Lakers can get away with starting Flip Murray since you don't need a true PG for the triangle offense and Kobe's the primary ballhandler anyway.

5vs
Detroit
PG: Brandon Jennings(R) / Eric Maynor(R)
SG: Demar DeRozan(R) / Keith Bogans / Chase Budinger(R)
SF: Al-Farouq Aminu(R) / Adam Morrison
PF: DeJuan Blair(R) / Ed Davis(R)
C:  BJ Mullens(R) / Joel Anthony / Dikembe Mutombo

Minnesota
PG: Monta Ellis / Sebastian Telfair / George Hill
SG: Rashad McCants / Nick Young
SF: Luol Deng / Trenton Hassell
PF: Marreese Speights / JaVale McGee / Dominic McGuire
C: Joel Przybilla / Kyrylo Fesenko / Mark Blount

Vote: Minnesota. I don't think Detroit will be winning a single game with a starting lineup of only rookies. I guess Blair could have a big game. Nothing else positive I can really say for Detroit. I don't like the trio of Ellis, McCants and Deng for Minnesota. A SG in a PG's body, a ballhog and an effective but passive guy. There's no chemistry there. Even so, this is an easy win for Minnesota. Ellis goes for 50.  

6vs
New York
PG: Tony Parker / Jerryd Bayless
SG: Francisco Garcia / Kelenna Azubuike
SF: Boris Diaw / James Posey / Ime Udoka
PF: Zach Randolph / Nick Collison / Brandon Bass
C: Brook Lopez / Ben Wallace

Orlando
PG: Rodney Stuckey / Ty Lawson(R) / Shaun Livingston
SG: Mickael Pietrus / Thabo Sefolosha / Quincy Douby
SF: Jeff Green / Shawn Marion
PF: Nene / Darius Songaila
C: Tim Duncan / Nene

Vote: Orlando. The Magic got Duncan for Granger.. nice. This team is extremely reliant on Duncan. Everything has to go through him because Stuckey isn't a great playmaker yet. I would start Marion at PF to get more of an inside-outside vibe going in the offense. Nene can backup PF and C. There are gonna be matchups that this isn't going to work for though but I like this better overall.
New York would have problems with Orlando's frontcourt. You got good defense coming off the bench in Collison and Wallace but they don't give you anything offensively.
This is a tough matchup but I think Shawn Marion gives Orlando the edge. I'll just assume he gets close to the amount of PT as does Green. He can even guard Parker who could be disrupted having to deal with something different.


7vs
Toronto
PG: Rajon Rondo / Gilbert Arenas / Sean Singletary
SG: Gilbert Arenas / Chris Douglas-Roberts
SF: Evan Turner(R) / Travis Outlaw / Jason Kapono
PF: Luis Scola / Jason Maxiell / Josh McRoberts
C: Samuel Dalembert / Lorenzen Wright / Adonal Foyle

Memphis
PG: Jameer Nelson / Willie Warren(R) / Tyronn Lue
SG: Anthony Parker / Charlie Bell
SF: Corey Maggette / Peja Stojakovic / Joe Alexander
PF: Al Jefferson / Luc Richard Mbah a Moute / Ike Diogu
C: Zydrunas Ilgauskas / Rasho Nesterovic

Vote: Toronto. What the hell? Corey Maggette is on two different teams. This has to be cleared up. I like the Raptors backcourt of Rondo and Arenas. Rondo can guard whoever the better backcourt opposing player is and he won't mind deferring to Arenas on the offensive end. I don't really wanna analyze this game more than that because Maggette is there when I'm not sure he should be.

Boston
Slightly worse bench,better at everything else.LOL at Warrick trying to contain Garnett.


Indiana
I dont really know how is HOU gonna play with run n gun players like Felton,Iggy and Gay while having half-court players like Zach and Love.David West with 7-7 FGA/FGM off the bench.


Dallas
Theor starting lineup would be enough to send the game to garbage time with a 25 point lead.The bench came in the and Denver take a17-0 scoring lead.SLU comes back and win by 15 finally.


La Lakers
The inexperience pay and the Cavs lose by 24.


Minni
With Ellis averaging 22 ppg on 48%(not sure but its close),easy one.


NYK
A pretty close one but the big men rotation hurts the Disneyland team.


Memphis win by a fair margin.

SF: Martell Webster / Tony Allen / Michael Finley
PF: Hakim Warrick / Brandan Wright / Craig Brackins
C: Chris Andersen / Brandan Wright / Hamed Haddadi

My Vote:Celtics 88-79

This game shouldn't be close but it will be.  Golden State really has no answers on the offensive or defensive side of the ball in this game.  In the 4th quarter  Martell Webster and Manu help Golden State comeback late, but in the end  Hakim Warrick and Martell Webster are no match defensively and get torched by KG and Pierce.

PG: Raymond Felton / Lou Williams
SG: Andre Iguodala / CJ Miles
SF: Rudy Gay / Corey Maggette
PF: Kevin Love / Glen Davis
C: Zach Randolph / Paul Davis

My Vote:Pacers  102-88
I actually see this game being close.  Indiana is stacked and should blow out teams but i think they are still weak at the PG spot.  This a game where Felton takes over and gives his team the lead for 3 quarters. I think Indiana is smart though and puts Brandon Roy on Felton and subbing in Miller for Kidd.  In the end, i think Zach Randolph blows the game for Houston as his lack of hustle cost them the game.


3vs
Dallas
PG: Chris Paul / Beno Udrih
SG: Leandro Barbosa / Wally Szczerbiak / Damon Jones
SF: Caron Butler / Wally Sczerbiak
PF: Amare Stoudemire / Udonis Haslem / Juwan Howard

Denver
PG: Jose Calderon / Ramon Sessions
SG: OJ Mayo / Delonte West
SF: Andrei Kirilenko /  Gerald Wallace
PF: Josh Smith / Lamar Odom
C: Marcus Camby / Marc Gasol

My Vote:Denver  114-110
This is a really good match up so it is all going to come down to defense and bench depth.  Denver wins in both categories. I think one of the best defensive Centers in the league shuts down Howard while J-Smoove locks up Amare.  Dallas gets desperate with no inside game and starts to comeback with Barbosa and Butler shooting the ball.  After a West for Mayo sub, this Denver team is pretty much shutting down every player  and gets the win.




4vs
Cleveland
PG: Mo Williams / Mario Chalmers
SG: Ronnie Brewer / Courtney Lee / Antoine Wright / Terrence Williams(R)
SF: Earl Clark(R) / Andres Nocioni
PF: Al Harrington / Jason Thompson / James Singleton

LA Lakers
PG: Flip Murray / Mike James / Patrick Mills(R)
SG: Kobe Bryant / Sasha Vujacic
SF: Mike Dunleavy / Damien Wilkins
PF: Anderson Varejao / Leon Powe / Josh Powell
C: Andrew Bogut / Chuck Hayes / Josh Powell

My Vote:Lakers 87-69

Cleveland doesn't have that go to guy on offense and that will kill them this game.  They also don't have that go to perimeter defender that is tall and quick enough to guard Kobe, who lights up Cleveland.  Mo Williams is able to take over the game for a little while with both passing and scoring, but this Lakers team is a team that is all about hustle, and they run Cleveland out of the gym.


5vs
Detroit
PG: Brandon Jennings(R) / Eric Maynor(R)

SG: Rashad McCants / Nick Young
SF: Luol Deng / Trenton Hassell
PF: Marreese Speights / JaVale McGee / Dominic McGuire
C: Joel Przybilla / Kyrylo Fesenko / Mark Blount

My Vote:Minnesota 88-76

This game is an ugly one.  Both teams matchup rather fairly except for the PG spot.  Aminu and Deng keep trading baskets until Monta Ellis shows why he is a PG and starts taking over the game.  Detriot doesn't have enough experience or offensive ability to really come back.  Monta gets nasty and scores 36.


6vs
New York
PG: Tony Parker / Jerryd Bayless
SG: Francisco Garcia / Kelenna Azubuike
SF: Boris Diaw / James Posey / Ime Udoka

PG: Rodney Stuckey / Ty Lawson(R) / Shaun Livingston
SG: Mickael Pietrus / Thabo Sefolosha / Quincy Douby
SF: Jeff Green / Shawn Marion
PF: Nene / Darius Songaila
C: Tim Duncan / Nene

My Vote:Magic 102-89

This game matches up rather well but i don't see it being close.  Orlando may be the best defensive team in the league and has scorers to boot.  Pietrus, Sefolosha, and Stuckey take care of any threat on NY while Duncan locks down Lopez.  Zach Randolph gets his buckets off Nene but Nene answers back as well.  In the end Orlando exploits Randolph by taking him to the post and running the fast break.  Ty Lawson comes in and scores 18 as Orlando takes care of business.

7vs
Toronto
PG: Rajon Rondo / Gilbert Arenas / Sean Singletary
SG: Gilbert Arenas / Chris Douglas-Roberts
SF: Evan Turner(R) / Travis Outlaw / Jason Kapono

SG: Anthony Parker / Charlie Bell
SF: Corey Maggette / Peja Stojakovic / Joe Alexander
PF: Al Jefferson / Luc Richard Mbah a Moute / Ike Diogu
C: Zydrunas Ilgauskas / Rasho Nesterovic

My Vote:Memphis 94-82

Toronto is a fairly good team but lacks an offensive bigman.  They absolutely dominate the front court with Rondo and Arenas but Rondo just isnt as effective without a true threat downlow to feed the ball to.  Memphis wins ugly as Arenas destroys Parker, but Toronto is just a bigman away form really becoming a solid team.

bos will win this, they are quite thin at depth but when you have their slu play 35+mins they can seal this game already. kg and pp and yeah tj ford will do very well

ind- they are a superb team. hou is really good, but you have an improved greg oden(now a sophomore), kidd still being decent and roy being more explosive.

lal- kobe bogut dunleavy scores lots  of buckets. the lbj loss will haunt cleveland

min- ellis, mccants, speights and deng teaches the young team a lesson

orl- td dominates inside and tells brook " you still have lost more to learn, and stuckey will be better, as well as jeff green. its gonna be close though.


tor- rondo, scola, dalambert will all be awesome. big Z has already slowed down. al jeff will eat scola alive but arenas will make a clutch basket. 100-98

Quote from: brianskinner=gay
he is a *** he is a theif he recently stole jewlery from my sister amounting to significant dollars american folks.  He like i said before is a ***.  Is it my sisters fault he is a no life drunk who can't even dunk the damn ball.  He has no money so he resorts to stealing from young women.  Once again he is a ***.  He should be stopped. Anybody knowing brian skinner should tell him he is a ***.  Tell brian skinner he needs to get a life, i tried using him on nba 2k9 but he is horrible he should just quit now and

Boston 98-91:  I had to go with the veteran team here.  Garnett would have a great game with a bunch of young, unproven defenders on him.  Boston has a great team defense with Bell to guard Ginobli all game, and Garnett+Perkins inside to anchor the D.  Golden States depth would come into play as they have a nice load of backups;  I figure the Celtics would control the game, but as the 2nd units come in to get their minutes the Warriors would go on a few runs, but it just wouldn't be enough to clase the game out with Garnett and Pierce to finish off the game.  Fun game though but Pierce goes off for 33 and Garnett adds 25 to that, and Ginobli's 21 points come at a somewhat inefficient clip.  I love you selb.  Cool

Denver
PG: Jose Calderon / Ramon Sessions
SG: OJ Mayo / Delonte West
SF: Andrei Kirilenko /  Gerald Wallace
PF: Josh Smith / Lamar Odom
C: Marcus Camby / Marc Gasol

Denver 114-113 OT: Both these teams are stacked, it's insane.  Dallas is an offensive juggernaut(best in the league) but I think Denver is relatively close, and they might have the best defensive front-court in the entire league with AK/Smoov/Camby.....imagine the shots they can block.  Chris Paul will exploit Calderon like he always does and has a great game going anywhere on the court he wants(as usual).  The Dallas starters are the best in this damn game, even with all their ego's they are a top all-star team basically.  Denver's bench is easily the better bench though with Wallace, Odom, West, Gasol, and Sessions: that's actually a decent starting 5 to have.  This game is down the wire.  Stoudemire and Howard struggle with their respective matchups and don't blow-up for 30points like they usually can.  I think Mayo has a great game too; lighting up Barbosa for the defenseless player he is.  Denver's bench and defense seem to be a perfect combination(along with nice offensive chemistry, though they lack an inside game), and Mayo hits a game-winning jumper in OT to win the game.  Craziest game ever played in the NBA? Maybe.

PG: Mo Williams / Mario Chalmers
SG: Ronnie Brewer / Courtney Lee / Antoine Wright / Terrence Williams(R)
SF: Earl Clark(R) / Andres Nocioni
PF: Al Harrington / Jason Thompson / James Singleton

PG: Flip Murray / Mike James / Patrick Mills(R)
SG: Kobe Bryant / Sasha Vujacic
SF: Mike Dunleavy / Damien Wilkins
PF: Anderson Varejao / Leon Powe / Josh Powell
C: Andrew Bogut / Chuck Hayes / Josh Powell

Lakers 103-95: I think the Lakers starting lineup is a little too much for the Cavs.  Mo Williams would have a great game putting up 26 points with Flip/James guarding him most of the game, but I think Kobe might actually end up switching onto him in the 4th quarter to try and contain him.  Brewer is a nice defender, but Kobe has shown he can usually do what he wants with him.  It's a very close game as Clevelands bench brings them back into this one against the Lakers second Unit(get it), but Bogut has a nice game along with Dunleavy making 5 threes, and Kobe is just too much at the end of the game.

PG: Brandon Jennings(R) / Eric Maynor(R)

Minnesota
PG: Monta Ellis / Sebastian Telfair / George Hill
SG: Rashad McCants / Nick Young
SF: Luol Deng / Trenton Hassell
PF: Marreese Speights / JaVale McGee / Dominic McGuire
C: Joel Przybilla / Kyrylo Fesenko / Mark Blount

Minnesota 104-89:  Detroit has a great young team.  Keyword being "young" as the entire starting 5 is full of rookies and 3 other rookies are in the rotation.  Minnesota has a nice young lineup as well, but their youth has some experience and a nice chemistry going on.  Przybilla would break Mullens young bones in this game, but I really like the Speighs/Blair matchup, though Speights would end up one upping him.  Monta and Deng would love this game though, each would put up over 20 points easily.  Not the toughest choice here, though I do love Detroits lineup still, and their youth movement.  Will be tough to win any games though.  Wink

New York
PG: Tony Parker / Jerryd Bayless
SG: Francisco Garcia / Kelenna Azubuike

Orlando
PG: Rodney Stuckey / Ty Lawson(R) / Shaun Livingston
SG: Mickael Pietrus / Thabo Sefolosha / Quincy Douby
SF: Jeff Green / Shawn Marion
PF: Nene / Darius Songaila
C: Tim Duncan / Nene

Orlando 94-89:  Really nice matchup.  I love the matchup at center with the young, up and coming stud of Lopez and possibly the best PF in the league in Duncan.  Lopez would have a good game putting up 16/10, but Duncan would have the last laugh putting up 28 points on little Brooke.  Parker would have a great game attacking Stuckey all game, but STuckey would counter back and have a nice little game as well, and New Yorks lack of overall offensive fire-power will hurt them in this game.  Parker is a great scorer, and Randolph would have a nice 20/10 game, but outside of that I don't think they would have an advantage anywhere, plus Nene has played well against Randolph in the past.  Turns out to be a really good game though, but Orlando's Duncan and company would pull away in the end.

Toronto
PG: Rajon Rondo / Gilbert Arenas / Sean Singletary
SG: Gilbert Arenas / Chris Douglas-Roberts
SF: Evan Turner(R) / Travis Outlaw / Jason Kapono

Memphis
PG: Jameer Nelson / Willie Warren(R) / Tyronn Lue
SG: Anthony Parker / Charlie Bell
SF: Corey Maggette / Peja Stojakovic / Joe Alexander
PF: Al Jefferson / Luc Richard Mbah a Moute / Ike Diogu
C: Zydrunas Ilgauskas / Rasho Nesterovic

Memphis 96-90:  Another solid matchup all-around.  Memphis just has too much power inside their entire front-court.  Toronto has a great back-court with Arenas and Rondo, but outside of that they don't have much offensive firepower.  Rondo could help contain Jameer to some extent, but Maggette and Stojakavic would both have solid nights;  and the post game of Memphis is just too much to handle.  Big Z would have a solid game, but Big Al would just blow up for 32 points; Memphis would pound it inside for the win.

Boston-Boston's defense just suffocates golden state. Golden States rotation is nicee but the players just dont have enough to go against Kevvin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Raja bel is able to shut down manu gninobli. GSWs bench dominates but it is not enough.

Indiana- INdiana's rotation and quality players give this team the upper hand. Housten starting lineup is good and the bench is decent as welll but it just doesnt stand up to the pacers. Zach Randolph has a nice game, as oden unfortunatly picks up a few fouls early on while guarding the big man, but greg oden still is able to put up 14 points 10 rebounds and a couple of blocks but 5 fouls as well.

Dallas- Dallas pulls away with a close win as although the Nuggets have a better rotation Dallas's players just show how much talent they really have. The combo of Chris Paul and Amare/Dwight gets alot of points in the start, but denver's bench comes on  to even the score. However Dallas ends up winning close in the end as Chris paul gives a nice pass to dwight howard for a dunk to put the Mavericks up by 4 with 20 seconds left.

Lakers- Kobes lights up this preseason game and helps the lakers come away with a victory. While Mo williams has a decnet game it is all kobe as he nails shot after shot. The front court of the cavs keeps the game close but the lakers are just too much for the cavaliers.

T-WOlves. The detroit pistsons are a young team. However, they are a completely young and inexpereinced team as well. they have no veterans to show them the ropes are to pull off clutch play. Each rookie is pretty focused on displaying their own individual talents rather than coming together as a team. T-wolves have the weaapons to win this game.

New York- New York pulls away with this one. The Combination of Tony parker, franscioc garcia and kellenna overpower orlandos back court. Tony parker boris diaw, and garcia also have the passing to give randolph the touches he needs to score alot, and they also are able to give the ball to brook Lopez a bit who shows off more of the outisde shooting that he worked on over the summer. Tim Duncan dominates lopez down low though but it is not enough to offset the production of newyorks back court.

Memphis-MEmphis pulls away with this one as their team appears to be a little more cohesive than the Raptors. I dont think that the Back court of arenas and Rondo fit that well And toronto is hard pressed to keep up with the scoring pace while playing pretty good front crout defense. However, Magette goes off for 27 points as evan turner seems lost guardign him.
