    4 3-pointers in the 4th alone and sparked the comeback.

    I was surprised, honestly - esp. considering I never wanted him on the team. But hell he has some balls. Just as advertised.

    Delfino was great in the fourth. I just wish Scola could have been on the team.

    Delfino's shot is wet.

    Delfino can bring everything Martin brought without all the drama.

    As long as he makes his shots when he's open he'll be useful. I wasn't so impressed with those few possessions where he thought he was Kobe though...

    We don't win this game without Delfino... ppl shouldn't forget we were down 11 at one point and looked awful.

    The fact is, McHale was awful. Morris was awful. Chandler was also nothing to write home about with his TO's and his shots blocked. TDouglas was stinky bad.

    We were trailing by 3 at the half, we should have been up by 15.

    He was shooting lights out when it counted. Nailing those open jumpers when Harden drew the double team was HUGE.

    That right-side 3 on the arc is money for Delfino. Morey must of done the stats to find Delfino's sweet spot.

    There will be days where he will stink it up and people will demand this was a horrible trade and he Maurie needs to be fired, other days like today Moree is a genius and Delfino will win All star 3pt shooting contest hands down.

    On average he has proven to be a solid secondary scoring option and provides a veteran presence on a very young team at a fairly low cost. I like the pick up and there is always place on any NBA roster for a good outside shooter. With Beardsanity drawing so much attention he fits nicely or when we're struggling to score he provides some fire power to the second unit.

    I've been saying it all summer. For anyone who watched the Olympics he shot lights out and played hard. Only wish we paired him with Scola for the Argentine connection a few years ago.

    Delfino looked good, played some solid D, and hit clutch 3s. If he can keep this up, it just opens the middle for everyone else. Beardfino for the win!

    McHale's raising his stock to ~20th pick come deadline time. :)

    Seriously though, I'm a little annoyed at how little depth we have at the wing position. Was hoping Douglas could play a little SG, but he looked horrible.

    I'm not sure he even hit the rim besides the one miss.
