I actually caught almost a half of the Claws game, as I couldn't get the C's.
Melo picked up two fouls(bogus I might add)in about the first 40 seconds of the game! One on a clean blocked shot from behind on a guard that penetrated cleanly for a layup. The other he got called for a blocking foul, where it clearly looked like he got position and took a charge! I'm sure it wasn't good why to get a feel for your first pro game!
Actually, the whole Claws team looked alot like our C's, with very little rebounding, and giving up lots of penetration to their guards! Since they're supposed to be running OUR sytem, I guess that would follow.
Just on what I saw KJ looked a little out of control, but must have gotten better in the second half. Chris Wright, from my neck of the woods at WSU in Dayton,O, looking good. His knock was always his outside shooting, but saw him knock down 2 smooth 3's! Shelvin Mack played well, and can really shoot! Those three were listed as 17th, 4th and 9th best pro prospects in the D League! With the exception of KJ, the others have all small, but considerable time in the Show.
