    Pretty cool story about Matt Thomas. He seemed to have a rough childhood.

    Last night, the Nuggets lost in Boston and Monte is back to getting a low-ish number of minutes. His : 14 MIN, 9 PTS, 2-5 FG, 0-1 3PT, 1 REB, 2 AST, 2 TO and -3. The number of FTs shows that maybe he had some aggressiveness going to the hole (my speculation).

    OKC came back and beat Minnesota in OT and Nader was in the starting lineup, in place of Terrance Ferguson who did not dress. He ended up with 30 MIN, 6 PTS, 1-3 FG, 0-1 3PT, 4-4 FT, 2 REB, 1 BLK and 1 TO. Kind of a strange line; it doesn't seem like he was attacking the rim like he often does.

    Deonte Burton did not dress due to his 1-game suspension.

    Nice recovery after a back-door cut:



    He finishes so well with the left:

    Nader started again in OKC's win at Portland and, once again, put up respectable numbers. His line: 19 MIN, 7 PTS, 2-5 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-2 FT, 2 REB, 1 TO and a +4.

    Nice catch-and-shoot for 3, coming off a pick:

    Monte's Nuggets lost at Brooklyn last night. Monte's line looked OK: 15 MIN, 9 PTS, 3-8 FG, 2-5 3PT, 4 AST and 1 TO.

    On Saturday, Georges Niang got some decent minutes again with Utah (at least 1 key player was injured). His line: 16 MIN, 6 PTS, 2-5 FG, 2-5 3 PT, 1 REB and 2 TO.

    More interesting for us may be that the Jazz plays OKC tonight so there may be some moments of Georges guarding Abdel Nader and vice versa. I'd like to mention Deonte Burton but he was suspended for a game and didn't appear in the last box score so I'm not sure what his status is.

    Monte, Grant, and Plumlee had a nice stretch in the 2nd half to get the Nuggets back in it. Monte had his two 3s. The Nuggets have some problems.

    I don't think he will get any minutes on that team currently. They're on Pace to win like 70 games not sure they're going to experiment much

    Shayok was listed in the 76ers box score last night as a DNP. I don’t know if he actually dressed or was inactive. If nothing else I assume he’s getting the pay bump for getting called up.

    Nader vs. Georges:

    The Jazz can't be happy that OKC went to their arena and beat them handily. Both our guys had decent lines, at least. Abdel started with Ferguson still out. His line: 28 MIN, 10 PTS, 4-8 FG, 2-4 3PT, 3 REB, 1 AST, 2 STL, 1 BLK and +10.

    Georges played the most minutes off the Jazz' bench but I suspect that a lot of that had to do with mop-up minutes in the 4th. His line was 19 MIN, 7 PTS, 3-7 FG, 1-4 3PT, 3 REB, 1 STL and -9. In general, the Jazz' bench is viewed as being sub-par so there is opportunity for #31.

    Block on Bogdanovic and a great back door cut for 2:

    Looks like THT got a couple minutes and an assist last night.

    Rondo and Bradley are both out, but that's the way it will likely be all season. Hopefully Talen shows enough to be configured into a fulltime contract next year.

    Could Nader be making himself attractive trade bait to a contender right now?

    Dwight Howard tried to give him a TO at the end of the game when they were running out the clock and THT was not about to take that negative stat lying down.
