OKC will be fine. The trade will work out for both sides. The second team played well again. It's the starters that seem to be out of sorts. Kevin Martin has moved the ball and taken great shots.
My biggest concern is Scott Brooks use of the lineup and Ibaka. He's really just a good shot blocker. He has not developed much and has a very low basketball IQ. I've always felt like he was the expendable one, and he's doing nothing to change my mind. They may have been better off packaging him for some upside bigs instead of moving Martin.
Brooks needs to find ways to get Lamb and Perry Jones minutes even if it costs them a win or 2. They are very talented and need to see some court time.
I still believe they are the best team in the West although its very close.
I'm happy for Harden. He would never get the volume of shots he's getting with the Thunder. I hope to see him get his first all star nod and lead the Rockets to the playoffs.
Fun to be back watching live NBA basketball again
BTW Presti biggest mistake is extending Brooks. It's not even close.
