Reader Comment of the Day: "This team really is special, and I think we all feel it. I'm worried right now about other team's taking advantage of our Sock-less team and keep up the sashay into the paint. However, I also think we'll compensate - the Denver game excepted because I don't think anyone can explain that other than to assume PJ wanted to see what the bench was made of. Still - it's a chess match and I do believe it's PJ's turn. Let's see what happens. " -- justanothermambafan
