Exciting finish, for sure! Way closer than it should've been, but definitely fun.

Guys.... Lets just appreciate this. Before the Rudy trade, we would have had Bargs take that shot....

Can't help but wonder how different this season would have been if we had Gay when we were blowing all those games late in the 4th. Probably would have a couple extra wins easily.

The D has really gone to **** lately. They have to pick that part of the game up going into next season.

That was the best game I've ever seen live. Place went NUTS when Rudy hit that game winner, and it wasn't even nearly a sell-out. Decent crowd for a Tuesday night game though.

That Demar dunk was dirty too. Crowd sounded really loud on that dunk.

Denver is a fantastic offensive team that plays an uptempo style. Hard to complain about the points being given up in this game.

Omg, just saw DeMar's dunk... that was incredible. Huge props to Rudy for closing out the game. It feels good that Raps finally have a guy that can give the ball to in the clutch and have him come through. After watching Rudy Gay and all he can do, I don't get how he doesn't put more points or shoot better... he just looks good out there, whether he is handling the ball, or his shooting stroke and just the way he moves around. I'm hoping in a bigger role, Rudy Gay starts to break out a little and starting hitting his ceiling.

Denver is first in the league in rebounds and points in the paint. They were pressuring our wings all game which led to turnovers. With their up-tempo offence our turnovers really hurt us.

Our D is what it is. We need a bigger paint presence as Amir is prone to foul trouble and Val isn't ready to be guarding bigger guys.

A 3pt shooter and shot blocker is pretty much all this team is missing. Milsap would be perfect, he had a great game today against OKC.

Here's a video of Demar's dunk:



Dunk of the year candidate no doubt!

I guess one will be made every time he hits a game winner.

That Demar dunk was sick. Needs to go up with force more often instead of looking for the call.

John Lucas has now used 2 out of his 3 hot nights a year lol. Rudy Gay, what else to say. Dude is a closer in the last 10 seconds of a game.

The crowd has been great all year. It's kind of understandable right now because of the excitement from picking up Gay, but even before that, the crowd was good given how bad the team was.

I can't wait to see how it gets once the team actually gets good.

How perfect would Ken Faried be for this team? I honestly have trouble thinking of a more perfect fit for us at PF. I don't care he's only 6'8, he's a perfect low-post rebounder and "banger".

I know...it's nearly impossible to get him. But still, a man can dream.

I don't think it's that people disliked the thought of acquiring Rudy Gay the player, it's just that many (including myself) were saying that he's similar to DeMar and that it would be interesting to see how they would co-exist on the floor.

So far, it is obviously working out. Rudy is a damn good player and it's important to state that WE FINALLY HAVE A SF.

And the trade is not about this season. I'm more concerned about our cap flexibility for the next 2 or 3 years. If we can get another legit piece than I'd feel more comfortable about the future of the club going forward.

Its very short sighted to declare the trade a win a week into it.
