I never fail to get a chuckle out of it when someone refers to John Lucas III as a "veteran" point guard....then, in turn, refer to Hayward, Kanter, Favors, etc. as youngsters....Lucas has been bounced around the game of basketball for about 9 years now....living on his father's reputation, because he's really only a fair basketball player by NBA standards...He's 5'11", and where that's tall enough to play in the NBA, you have to be very good to make it work.

This young man has been on 11 teams in 9 years, and more than once on a couple of those teams. Why the Jazz selected him to "school" Trey Burke defies logic....He dribbles fairly well, and he's a fair shooter; but he is a poor passer, a poor facilitator, and a poor defender. Trey Burke is a better player going in than JL III will ever be.

I hope when they return it means Lucus and Jefferson move to the bottom of the rotation.

The only thing worse than getting beat by the most inept team in the NBA...

is getting beat twice by the same crew.

NO has had a week to digest their loss to the JAZZ.

The loss came on the second night of a back-to-back roadie.

NO played a tune-up for tonight's contest on Saturday.

NO is well rested, intent on erasing the embarrassment of 11/13.
