Not much to say about this one. Really. Wish I had the words to explain it. I never thought Chris Wilcox meant so much to this team, but his absence is very noticeable. They've been blownout in both games without Wilcox.
It's not Nick Collison's fault. He did what he does, which is rebound. Tonight he had 14. But asking him to score 15 or 20 points is asking too much. That's not his game. He can do, but you can't go into game expecting him to do it.
I'm convinced that this team will need to add another scorer, maybe in the draft and I'm not sure if Memphis' Derrick Rose fits the bill. The guy is way too unselfish. He's drawn comparisions to Jason Kidd and Kevin Durant will need someone else on the floor to pick up some of the scoring load.
I don't think this team won't draft O.J. Mayo because of the character issue, but I'm sure they're taking a long look at Indiana's Eric Gordon and even Michael Beasely even though he might play the same spot as Jeff Green and Durant.
