    There go our playoff chances....
    YUP! Resting isn't going to do anything unless he rest for a long period of time which will then make him lose his rhythm. Just great. It sucks having our best player be someone who can't stay healthy or play well through minor injuries. Oh well. Such a good season can go to shit just like that
    I relish negativity and disappointment. It is not healthy. Somebody buy me a pony.

        Lowry is injured, Carroll is injured, we lose in the first round and Casey has an excuse to weasel his way back as the Raptors' Head Coach...

          Well, that couldn't have gone any worse... Lowry hurt, doomsday whispers on Carroll (meaning, worst of all, that Doug Smith might be right about something)...

          The entire team was pretty yuck but if I have to watch Scola in the starting lineup much longer I'm gonna lose my mind. How a basketball mind like Casey can't see what an abomination our starting lineup is is beyond me.

          I could really use some good news around this team... Well, Powell is looking good. Yay...

              Totally agree man (not on the rest costing us games, just on it not being necessary). Don't understand the resting players stuff. If guys are legitimately hurt? Of course sit them. If not, fucking play. Golden State isn't resting anyone, Klay played the entire 4th quarter against PHILLY just so he could get to 40 (the game was over).

              This attitude of guys breaking if they play more than 35 mins or don't get rest is just so lame. AI used to play 42 minutes per game and he was 165 soaking wet. Smaller than basically anyone who gets regular run nowadays and literally carrying his team's offense night in night out.

              Guys need to work and stay in condition to be able to play their minutes on a night to night basis. Lowry getting hurt last year imo was his fault, not anyone else's. That's why he went to work on his body in the summer because he knew his conditioning was poor.
              Lol at this coming just before news of Lowry getting his elbow drained. This is not an abstract conversation about rest.

                Healthy Lowry is pretty much playing at the level of Chris Paul. CP3 and Lowry can both carry/drag a team coached by idiots (though one is also GM-ing it kinda like and idiot too)

                  Lowry shouldn't play for at least a week. No idea why he played tonight if it was that bad.

                      What are you talking about? Lowry himself even said that rest wasn't helping the situation and he needs to play through it.

                      Lol at you posting without getting the information.

                        Yeah that 1 day of rest didn't help so that must mean rest has been tried and is completely useless..

                          Well, Lowry said "Doesnt think rest will help, said they tried that & needs to play thru it" - but he only rested 1 game, so hard to really say they tried it. Wouldn't be the first time that a player wanted to play through something that should have been rested; heck, wouldn't even be the first time for this player.

                            Could you please just stop posting to me? I can't put you on ignore since you're a mod, but nothing useful or productive ever comes out of it.
