Good to hear that he may play. I've always liked his energy on the floor.

He brings the kind of energy we need to help steal a road game.

Hill being available doesnt help anything.

A reserve who hasnt played in 6+ months. LMAO @ all the talk on the Lakers FB page like HES BACK. NOW WERE COMPLETE! WERE GONNA BATTLE. Honestly the way SA toyed with us in game 1, were lucky if we only lose by 15. Hill only means Pau sits. And that means less offense and interior passing. And because we didnt even average 25 points/qt in game 1, we cant afford to lose any offense. 

 

So Hills in. Great. He plays D. Awesome pawsome. SA is still gonna push 88-95 points no matter what. WTF do we do to match that? If Hill replaced Pau we will score less than game 1.

I somewhat agree, but I think the guy just has the intangibles that can't help but help us. Rebounding was even in game 1. Need to out-rebound Spurs by at least 10-12 if you want a chance to win.

Dominate the rebounds (and paint, in general), try to make your open shots better than last game, and just let the chips fall where they may.

Looking forward to seeing how MDA ruined Jordan Hill's career and run him down to the ground like a lot of his players.  Remember when Jordan Hill was healthy and MDA had no idea how to use him? What makes you guys think MDA still knows how to use Jordan?


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

For him to play, someone needs to get benched for good. Clark or Jamison. Hmm Hmm.

Man hopefully he still has that hustle even though he's not in game shape, but I feel as though it's a mentality first so he should be really helpful against an older Spurs squad.

 It's hard to imagine a player being out this long coming back well conditioned and prepared for playoff basketball.

Especially because Hill's game is more effort than skill. Effort is dependent on health, so I don't expect him to come back and be effective immediately if his body doesn't allow it.

He will give us good minutes. Pre-injury Jordan Hill would be great, but I'm not expecting anything more than some hustle plays and energy sparks in the <20 minutes he plays.
