Knight with 17 shots, wasn't his most efficient outing, but i think he needs to be putting up 14-17 shots if we want to win. Additionally most a number of those were at the rim, where he still struggling to finish.


*if that was westbrook gettin hit at the rim, they would certainly be called fouls, knight never gets them

Knight with his second strong game in a row. Nice response to London.

Drummond looked awkard and lost and disinterested in the 1st half. Not something I've seen much from him this year, to his credit. However, in the 2nd half, he just dominated.

I cannot wait until he learns to become a decent then a good, and maybe someday a great, post player on offense. But no matter what, this kid just dominates.

2nd game in a row we had like 5-6 people in double digits, I think.

Yeah, but he'll probably have 2 pts and 2 rebs the whole rest of the game.

Prophetic. Max did only have 2 pts and 3 rebs the rest of the game!

On a side note, these great 1st qtr starts Max has had this year doesn't bode well for Dre starting anytime soon. Its been proven before that Maxiell plays his best when he starts, and isn't the same player off the bench. Thats probably playing into the decision to keep him in the starting lineup.

Damn, off by 1! :sad:

But seriously, Max is about the most predictable player on our roster. We need to move him now while he has some value because once Drummond pushes his way into the starting lineup Maxiells value will plummet. Right now there are probably a few GM's thinking he'd be OK off the bench for their playoff team. But we know better.

Maxiell has always sucked off the bench. For whatever reason he plays better as a starter.... he just isn't good enough to actually start. He's sorta in that Flip Murray mold of players who are nice to bring in as a short term replacement for an injured player, but who otherwise don't really fit.

Spot on Cow. Maxiell looks like he'd be an excellent energy player, but doesn't play with energy in limited minutes. He's also not good enough to start.

agreed, however with this recent push we are making highly unlikely anyone gets traded. additionally MAx is a huge part of our team being that krav isn't ready and JJ has been horrible. he'll more than likely be resigned.

I hope not. I'd rather we signed a vet C for $2-4 mil to backup Drummond. We have plenty of depth behind Monroe at PF already.
