    You mean when Duke led Clemson 25-10 after the first half?

    You mean when Ryan Kelly led Clemson 12-10 after the first half?

    19 min, 12 pts, 6 reb

    UNC is getting better, Dook not so much peaking early.

    Sadly, UNC will make it further in the NCAA tournament than Dook will.

    K will soon retire in disgrace.

    Yeah, Duke was one of 2 undefeated teams at the time, after playiong the toughest schedule in the country, by far.
    UNC sucks no matter who is on the floor for them.

    How original from the hurt one. Dook was starting to look horrible with Kelly in.

    transcription of the baby in the video:

    McDonald played in the Kentucky game?

    I didn't know that.

    UNC played 0 games last year with the full team.

    People forget how hard it is to cover Kelly. He moves very well without the ball and at 6'11", you have to stay near him or his shot is gone when you get there. Also, you can't double down from the ball side if you're going to leave him alone, when he dumps it in, that gives Plumlee all that more room to work. Working that hard on D leaves less energy for offense.

    Agree dbdevils. If a key player is hurt, then your back up's have to step up. Duke has Mcdonalds all americans on the bench. State has six players. Thats it. Lewis hasnt lived up to the hype hopefully yet, Vandenberg SMH, thats it. State hasnt proven to me that they can win a true road game. Dont count BC. They arent very good. NO excuses from me. Never have been, never will be. Go Pack, and anybody but DUKE/UNC!

  • Rollin Like PDoobie Jan 20, 2013

    OK, so, let's hear what excuses you Wolfies have for the loss to mighty OK State (unranked unless you count their 95th ranking in scoring), or the Maryland loss, or the Michigan loss (bet it was because they were ROAD games against good teams hu?). Guess what folks, you have no legitimate excuses as Duke was without a KEY Senior against a loaded team on the road!

    As for the repeated request for an answer about the Louisville game without Dieng, bottom line is Duke did what it needed to do to win that game, just like State did to win the game with Kelly on the bench. We will never know the outcome of the games had either played, my guess is that either game could have ended differently.

    If having a KEY player on the bench is the only acceptable excuse for Elite teams after a loss then I am just befuddled as to why State has three losses, two to unranked teams! Waiting for an answer........

    +1...Duke will need everybody to bring their A-game if they're gonna beat the'Canes down there. IMO

  • Toddler10-21 Jan 20, 2013

    Me too. Want Duke at full strength on 2-7. Its hard to see how Curry can get better because he is playing through his injury. Duke will need Jefferson, and Hairston to step up big time aganist Miami because they are so big. Back to baseball, a 30-30 player is more impressive to me than a home run hitter.

    Agreed...Bonds let the McGwire/Sosa HR battles get in his head - went from there. IMO, HRs are way overrated. Much rather have the consistent hitters who can hit .300, get on base consistently, hit in the clutch, etc. Fans love to see the jacks but they're so overrated in the big scheme of things. Besides, most HR hitters are easy to get out if you have good stuff & locate your pitches, lots of holes in the swings of big hitters.

    Topic - just hoping for a healthy Kelly & Curry come tourney time.

  • Toddler10-21 Jan 20, 2013

    Agree. Thats was during the Barry Bonds, Leyland, Van Slyke era. Bonds was probably the best all around player in baseball. He didnt need the roids. In my opinion he was already a hall of famer before he left the Pirates.

    Late '70s Pirates were strong, had a short run in the early '90s. Nothing since!

  • Toddler10-21 Jan 20, 2013

    Think with Kelly being out this is a good time for the younger guys to get some playing time. I do really think Kelly's foot issues is serious. Hope Curry's injury doesnt get any worse, because I like him, and he is a clutch player. The big red machine were bad during there day. Met Morgan once. Great guy, and comentator. Agree also the Bash brothers should have won more. The reds did kick there you know whats. Always been a Rickey Henderson, Dave Stewart, and Eck fan. Loved those 79 Pirates also. The Cobra, Stargell, Moreno, Madlock, Bibby, Garner, Tekulve etc...

    +1...Kelly plays a major role in their success. Duke's W/L record with Kelly in the lineup is outstanding. Is what it is!

  • VT1994Hokie Jan 18, 2013

    When a key player like Kelly goes down, it affects the chemistry and continuity. Players get used to each other and know their tendencies. Losing 13 pts per game, rebounding, and a few assists shows up.

    The Big Red Machine was strong as gas. Back in the day, they knew how to play. @ Toddler, nice collection of Yankees. Have to give it to 'em, they're committed to winning rings & that's what it's all about. The Reds were dominant in the '70s & the Yankees have been throughout. Biggest underachievers were the '80s A's. One ring with all that talent. I thought it was hilarious when the Reds swept them in the 1990 World Series.

    Think Lebron will go down as number 2 to Jordan. Jordan never lost a finals. Braves should have won more. Liked Otis Nixon, Justice and loved to watch Deion leg out a triple. The Yankees will always be my boys, Jackson, Dent, Rivers Guidry, Catfish, and Jeter, Bernie, Paul Oneil etc. Love the DH. Pitchers get paid to pitch, not hit. The Ville is a solid team. great guards probably the best back court in the country. Have two sister in laws in Tampa. they have bben teeling me for years to come down during spring training. This year I may see my yankees.

    Just a hunch but Louisville will probably make the Final Four. For the record, my official teams as follows;

    NFL - 'Skins since 09 - really was a true Packer fan at one time & that started well before Brett & Reggie. Packers getting rid of Chuck Cecil was a bad move (I prefer defense over offense) & then the Favre stuff. Had enough & ditched 'em.

    NBA - no favorite although I'll watch the top teams go at it...including your Lakers. Give a slight edge to Jordan over Kobe but there are a lot of greats I never saw play. Given the choice of the Bobcats or any other - I'll go with any other.

    MLB - Braves in the NL. Prefer offense, hitting, etc., like the AL with the DH - going to see the Red Sox later when spring training starts. ABNYY - lol

    College - NCWC & Campbell

    College hoops - Duke - enjoy watching good teams play each other as well.

    With that said, nothing compares to playing. IMO

  • Toddler10-21 Jan 17, 2013

    They are a little better. Wish Deng would have played in the earlier matchup with Louisville since the Kelly excuse will go down in Duke history. Here are my teams, Lakers, Steelers, Yankees, Saint Augustines University, and the Pack,forever, and always. Oh yeah and anybody thats plays UNC/DUKE! LOL!

    Of course you have! Here is a list of my favorite teams in each sport, so file this away for future reference.

    Favorite NFL team - NE, SF, Balt., ATL, etc.
    Favorite NBA team - New York, Chi, Miami, OC, LA Clippers, etc.
    Favorite MLB team - Yankees, Cardinals, Giants, etc.
    Favorite college football team - 'Bama (was almost UGA), USC, Texas, Nebraska, Florida, Boomer Sooner, etc.
    Favorite college hoops team - DU, UK, UNC, UCLA, Kansas, etc.
    Favorite college baseball team - LSU, Tex., OSU, OU, etc.
    Pool - partial to the Cue Ball because it knocks the others around.

    I've been an avid fan of these teams since I was a kid & that will never change. :-S

    Topic - Duke is better when Kelly is in the lineup. Their W/L record is what it is.

    In other news State beat duke the last time they played them, and you guys are blaming it on Kelly being out. BUT Deng was out aganist Ville when you guys played them earlier. No comment about that!!

    Know way CJL goes for 25 aganist kelly? I know he would have went for 30. Slow Kelly cant guard CJL. He will size him up, and go around him everytime! When did Kelly become such a great defender? His only hope is the FLOP, and we all know he great at it. Dude is six elevin, and plays like he six foot. Plumlee is a better defender, and he can jump out of the gym, and CJL was jumping over him, and laying the ball in. That was a breat block by the way!

    As long as Kelly can return before tourney time, I'm not worried. If he is out for good, this team will have to adjust, and they will do that.

    As for the UNC fans on here chirping, your team sucks will all players healthy. So, shut it up before you get your feelings hurt.

    Kelly could have helped spread the defense and help rebound/defend wing players, however, Duke lost and there is nothing that will change that. We will get even when they come to Cameron.

  • BlueDevils00 Jan 14, 2013

    Duke missed Kelly on offense, but there's no way CJL goes for 25pts with Kelly guarding him.

    Duke by 9 in the rematch.

    At the Davidson game, the trainer was loosening up both knees at every break. He appeared to be in some pain while the trainer was working on them. I never found out what the deal was but that was right after the Santa Clara game and the beginning of the slump.

    Well for one thing, they will have fewer options for building log dams in the creeks around the Dook Forest.

    They'll miss his 3-point shot as well.

  • seedofdoubt Jan 14, 2013

    The thread is about Kelly, but the loss to State should be about a huge, glaring goose-egg in Rasheed's shooting. 0-10 at State. He hits 3/4 of those and Duke wins. He was 1-5 against Clemson/2-8 Santa Clara/1-6 Davidson. Mini-slump for the freshman midway into the season? Looks like it. Will he recover? You bet he will!

    GO DUKE
