MoiseKapenda Bower ("MK") joins the podcast as we talk about the Wizards game, the 7-game win streak and whether this team should be considered a contender. We also talk about Asik, D-Mo and the trade deadline.

The good part about going to Parsons or Lin recently was it actually sets them up as possibilities that the opponent has to account for. Yes, going to Harden is best; but there was real long term value to touching other possibilities.

The streak itself is irrelevant. The salient question to ask is if the team can beat any team in the league in a best of 7 series. Rox can have a 20 game streak, but if it can't beat Thunder or Clipper, then it won't even get to the finals let alone the championship.

Earlier in the season the streams online were really great. Recently you can still find a few good ones. Of course you could always pay for ballstreams

Fascinating question of what Morey does at the trade deadline. My guess is maybe a small move, but mostly he'll just wait and see how this team does as it begins to gel, and use that information to inform a bigger move in the offseason.

Great podcast, Clutch. I agree with your comments about the increased synergy between the players, the development of chemistry (finally). Interesting to me that this seemed to come out of the back to back losses to Memphis. We had 2 days off, then played SA and Dallas back to back, winning both. 2 more days off and we beat the Cavs. Then 3 days off before we meet and beat the Suns. Another two days, and after the Bucks win, things seem back to has seemed "normal" with the schedule. My point is that early in the streak, after 2 humiliating losses, we began to get multiple days off between games, allowing practice time that they badly needed, and more rest than some of the guys have seen in a while. I think that's contributed to what we're seeing now.

I'm glad that MoiseKapenda Bower ("MK") laid the rule on the Bev-Lin debate. The numbers are very clear. He made the point that a lot of people are missing - Bev is a much better fit but not necessarily the better player. He also gives pure numbers as to why Lin is playing better as a bench player.

While I think they are playing a lot better and dwight sort of coming into his own scoring wise with harden on the coart. If you look at the teams they have played during the winning streak majority are scrub teams. I mean there is no doubting that they are playing better but I need to see them play like that against better teams speacilly ones with centers.

The first two teams they beat in the streak were San Antonio and Dallas, back to back, hardly chopped liver. They beat the Suns, another good team. It bugs me that some here go for the glass half empty. Things are good! 3rd in the West, 36-17, Dwight's playing like a madman, Harden has his Euro-step back. What do you want? Perfection? I don't think it exists. I like where we are, thank you very much.
