@  cointurtlemoose : (20 October 2014 - 04:18 AM) I'm liking Kostas' crafty plays.
@  2016Champions : (20 October 2014 - 12:42 AM) Looks like his form improved. A reliable 3pt shot to take away the likes of Ibaka and Aldridge away from the rim could be huge for Harden's drives to the basket, and hopefully also result in more use of the pick and roll between Harden and Dwight.

@  thenit : (15 October 2014 - 12:35 AM) Asik and Davis looks good together
@  thenit : (14 October 2014 - 01:58 PM) I think we have a shot, but we are still behind Washington and OKC.
@  blakecouey : (14 October 2014 - 04:15 AM) He goes to Longhorn football games regularly, have seen him several times. I think we've got a shot, but wouldn't necessarily say we're a favorite to land KD.
@  Losthief : (14 October 2014 - 12:17 AM) the other thing that helps with durant is he likes texas, still goes/visits to UT Austin most summers iirc.
@  Buckko : (13 October 2014 - 10:46 PM) I really like our chances, because even though D.C. is his hometown, harden is his BFF. Dwight/harden/rockets cast>>>>Wall/beal/wizards cast. Plus no income tax.
@  Cooper : (13 October 2014 - 05:23 PM) I think it helps us and the wiz since both could keep there core and add KD but the cap jumping also helps okc since they are so scared of the tax. they can now keep Jackson and add another guy.
@  thenit : (13 October 2014 - 04:27 AM) Until he returns. So still probably end up top 3
@  thenit : (13 October 2014 - 04:27 AM) I think it makes it less likely because teams will get more money from the tv deal. Also he will miss between 12-15 games and they will be above .500
@  Drew in Abilene : (13 October 2014 - 03:26 AM) This may just be wild fantasy, but with Durant's chances of winning a title at least diminished and the cap jumping significantly when he's a free agent, is it fair to say whatever small chance we have of landing him as a FA is a little better?
@  feelingsuper... : (12 October 2014 - 03:52 PM) Getting to the Finals and winning has become a few levels more difficult for the Thunder.
@  feelingsuper... : (12 October 2014 - 03:37 PM) Kevin Durant out for 6 to 8 weeks, fracture in foot.
@  Buckko : (11 October 2014 - 01:40 AM) No, he IS the worst announcer. That's why road games without him can be the best.
@  Dan G : (11 October 2014 - 12:34 AM) I'm with you on Clyde FSS. I loved Clyde as a player but he has got to be the worst announcer ever. I just wish it was Bill and Bullard, or bring back Calvin Murphy.
@  txtdo1411 : (10 October 2014 - 10:40 PM) I am starting to get very excited about our bench. I know it is preseason, but the toughness and grit is inspiring.
@  feelingsuper... : (10 October 2014 - 04:35 PM) Also as a reminder to any of you interested in joining us in the Red94 Fantasy Basketball League be sure to check here http://www.red94.net...ge-2#entry44420
@  feelingsuper... : (10 October 2014 - 04:33 PM) It's nothing, he just knocked knees during practice if I'm not mistaken. If it was the regular season he probably would have played.
@  08huangj : (10 October 2014 - 06:13 AM) He's injured...sorry.

Perhaps the Rocket figures that D-MO is good matchup against Bargnani.

Another possibility is that the Rockets imagine that D-MO can handle that backup PF role as a stretch 4, allowing Morris to slide to the backup SF role. Parson's has been averaging 38 minutes per game, which isn't sustainable even for a young player. A backup front line of D-MO, G. Smith, and M. Morris is very versatile.

I think Johnny Rocket has it.
If Delfino is going to be out for a while,Morris has to back-up Parsons(who will prob still get major minutes backing up Harden) and the Jones/Smith pairing isn't exactly an offensive juggernaut.
Combine that w/Jones looking utterly lost on offense,having lost all confidence in his shot.
Motie will prob be given a chance to back-up Pat and team w/Smith.

Yeah, now that I think of it, I think it has to do with replacing Terrence Jones who has looked pretty bad here of late.

Smith with D-Mo actually makes a ton of sense, much more than Smith with Jones as those latter two are slightly redundant in terms of being high flying types that do damage around the hoop.

Well, apparently the time has come for him to show what we are expecting from him. I know, we won't put up insane numbers like he did in D-League, but something close to 10 points are always welcome, and spreading the court would make some room for guards to finish at the rim, or even giving Morris some space as well. Like you have said, pairing him with Smith makes more sense than with T-Jones. But I also think that has more to do with having a short rotation right now due to injuries rather than his performance per se....he really need to get those minutes in order to regain confidence in his game.

I'll try and talk to him before the game. He's usually in there relaxing. Real cool dude to talk to off camera. He won't know if he's getting in though.

If D-Mo can hold his own on the defensive end of the court without being a sieve for our team and pick up some key rebounds, I would expect to see more playing time for D-Mo in the coming weeks. D-Mo has the offensive skills to compete, it's going to be his contribuitions on the other end of the court that will likely determine how much burn he gets on the court.

Since they are playing the Raptors it would be cool to see if they can get a small ball line up of Morris and DMo on the court for a few minutes. Seems like offensively you would have a ton of options and defensively I'm not too worried about the Raptors bigs pounding it in the post. On a side note Valanciunas is only listed at 231 pounds, 9 pounds more then DMo. I would love to see who gets the best of this match up.

I just want to see how this guy does against some real NBA talent. He played well in preseason/summer league, but that was always against scrubs. He also has only played a handful of regular season minutes in the last minutes of blowouts. The offensive potential is what I'm most curious about. I can see him blocking some shots too if given the chance. He does have some legs and is used to running a fast-paced game.
