    Omer Asik drive from the three-point line and slam (this was mostly uncontested, but when he starts going for major slams on drives, we'll be in business)

    I think the Greg Smith one was the best out of the three.

    Greg Smith is quietly one of my favorite players on this team.

    Smith may have the best hands of all our bigs. If he can ever figure out how to stay on the floor without fouling out, we really have something. I love the dunks, Clutch!

    I wonder what Asik weighs now? CD's quoted as saying he's 295. Is that possible? The guy's damn big out there!

    Yup he sets great screens & he hustles so hard under the rim. Cleans up the glass really nicely never gives up on a chance to tip the ball back in. A lot of what he does is so underrated fans don't realize it. He does the little things that other players like Harden & Lin get credit for. I love guys who hustle man.

    Exactly, he does everything you want a young, raw big to do with his 12 minutes off the bench. Greg Smith affects the game.

    Also, impressively, he is sitting with a 22.98 PER.

    I really like Delfino. He's a funny dude.

    I love that James Harden's poster slam over Gordon Hayward. Especially because Lin and 2Patt together were fiercely defending the Mo Williams and caused him a bad pass thus enable Harden an easy opportunity to have a monster dunk. Good team defense always leads to offense and easy buckets.

    NBA posted a version of this dunk with better video quality:

    But yes, I do like his game as well. Takes it up strong every time.

    All young high school PGs/SGs at home should be shown this. Feed the big man on the break. He will hammer it home.

    Harden's could have easily been a 3pt play. Best part about it was that Hayward -who has been toying with becoming a Rockets killer- had been trying to go Batum on us up until that point. He had a chance to challenge Harden's last dunk in the 4th qrt but was apparently deflated, conceding the easiest dunk of the season.

    Asik is sneaky big, as in look at me, I'm bigger than Big Al.

    I think Greg Smith needs a few more minutes.

    Sure, but is Greg Smith better than Royce?

    Of course he is. He's playing and making an impact. White is doing nothing but entertaining himself by "tweeting" his way into irrelevance.
