    Better lock Harty, or he'll become the next Pascal from the G League. Feliz Anos Nuevo fellow Rockers. Have a safe night, let's meet Friday.

    Not really. We're just a terrible match for them. They're capable of giving other teams in the 1-5 seeds fits.

    if Mike and Dantoni will start utilizing these players like Hart, Clemmos, and Clarke the rest of this season instead of burning PJ, Harden and Clint out we could be onto something here especially if Ego gets rolling as he appears he may after just two games... I'm not gong to get too stupid though until wee see how MDA rolls from here on out and how the team plays over all. That added hustle and length against LAL and Clips may make us more dangerous than I thought !

    They have the same problem as last year. They don't really have a guard that can consistently create. Their bread and butter is running Jokic on the high post which is hard to generate offense when everyone clamps up on defense

    What I see in Harty is a high motor, lots of hustle, can finish at rim 7 footer. Play him!

    Only thing Im concerned about, is that Rivers might not get so much playing time with EG back.

    I’ve seen it enough.

    MDA has to give Hart more playing time to develop.

    He won’t get 16 pts every game, but we should trust him. His efforts deserve that.

    He may shift a few of Russ mins to AR. This is a good problem to have though if you ask me

    I'm pretty sure we have him locked up for another year after this one and then restricted status afterwards. That's as close to locked up as one can get. I hope they manage to lock him up long term with a team friendly extension but I wouldn't overpay yet.

    Don't worry, Mike D will park his ass back on the bench in a couple of games after he inevitably has some crappy games. It will be blamed, "playing the match ups" and believing that the small line up was better. Lol.
