Patrick O'Bryant Starts Strong, C's Fall

Some tape-delay first half thoughts:

  • Starters couldn't start out better.  Picking up right where they left off.  No surprise there.
  • O'Bryant was billed as lazy and passive but sure looked aggressive tonight.  6 points, 6 rebounds, 3 blocks in 15 minutes (first half) is a nice start.
  • Eddie House looks like a point guard bringing the ball up (finally!)
  • Nice early look for Miles, but as expected, he's not nearly as explosive as he's been.
  • Second team (again, as expected) was sloppy at times on both ends of the floor.
  • Scal looks like, ...well, Scal.
  • Ok, its official.  Bill Walker is already a fan favorite.  First the alley oop, then the tomahawk.  Wow.

2nd half thoughts:

  • Mostly ugly, boring basketball in the 2nd half.
  • At least we got to see Miles finish an alley oop.  Some of that explosion is still there at least.
  • Liked seeing Tony take it aggressively to the hoop.  (11 pts. 4 ast, 2 steals, 2 blocks)
  • Only 4 minutes for JR Giddens?  Is he really that far behind that he can't get in a preseason game?
  • Pruitt didn't stand out much.
  • O'Bryant's final line: 10 pt. 8 reb. 3 blks - if he can play anything like that consistently, then we'll have no problem at the backup center spot.
