    4/5 shooting 11 points but more importantly, he played GREAT defense on Durant towards the end there. Should he be given Hamilton's minutes? Ham has been trash since those first 2-3 decent games.

    Houston has decided Garcia will be like Oden is to Miami, his purpose is the playoffs and basically 1 guy.

    Yea I'd like to see him back in the rotation .

    I feel like a damn hypocrite for how much I bagged on him earlier though.

    I like Garcia against OKC. Nobody really stops KD but he does the best job on him of anyone on the team and Garcia's shot was falling. If Garcia's shot is falling again, he deserves another chance to get some minutes here and there.

    Hamilton will still play probably and McHale will use Cisco in certain situations.

    Garcia is a good player just like casspi. But like anyone other player he has his nights. Just this year he has had more bad games than good. But I say rotate him more often when other players are having off games . That's the point of having more than 3 players on you're bench .

    You lose a lot on offense by keeping him in there...like Horry said, our missing piece is that swing defender, who can also keep up offensively...garcia just can't as only a streaky spot up shooter.

    idk if he should be given Ham's minutes, or how many of them.

    ALL i know is Casspi is OUT, relegated to being a poor man's Scalabrine.

    I've always said this team would be better if you had a guy at every position that could give you triple-doubles and hold their opponent to zero points.

    hamilton has made like 3 of his last 17 three pointers after his first two games.

    his chase down blocks are nice, but those are off his own turnovers LOL. imo he tries to do too much with the ball sometimes.

    McFail should not have benched Garcia. We should have played Garcia more to develop him.

    Well-rested. Good showing. Hamilton had an off night unfortunately.
