    Lindell plays tonight for the Iowa wolves. Went 1-8 from the field in their preseason game but played 22 mins off the bench.

    I think some metrics loved his defensive performance for Iowa State.

    Excited to watch Talon flying with the Lakers soon. Sounds like he’s back to practicing from the foot injury.

    Talon is still only 18, sort of mind boggling.

    Good defender, with lots of room to learn and grow. people treated him like he should have the defensive nous of an upper classman as a barely 18 year old freshman last year.

    I felt like he got his hands on a lot of passes etc. but needed work on positioning and face-guarding (if memory serves). He certainly could develop into an effective defender.

    Man, Talon is still only 18. That’s pretty incredible. Anyway, Sounds like he is officially cleared for practice.

    He’s done so much already basketball wise and there’s probably seniors in high school and entry level college freshman older than him.

    Super excited for him being so young, talented, and uniquely long, he’s got a lot of time to really develop and learn the NBA game.

    While other people take a break from the OSU-ISU game (I can't get coverage), just some quick lines from Cyclones in the NBA last night:

    Matt's Raptors got a W vs. N. Orleans last night. Matt got 12 MIN, 3 PTS, 1-2 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2 REB, 1 STL and 2 TO.

    George's Jazz also got a good W - over the tough Bucks. Georges also had 12 MIN and 2 PTS, 1-3 FG and 0-2 3PT.

    The Nuggets also won a tough won over the 76ers. Monte's game was kind of quiet with 16 MIN, 1-4 FG, 2 PT, 1 REB, 1 AST and 1 TO.

    Aaaand, if the box score is correct, Talen Horton-Tucket dressed last night for the Lakers, which is perhaps the first time for him.

    On the opening weekend of the G League, a number of Cyclones were in action:

    * Naz played 31 minutes, went 3 for 11 from the field and scored 12. Big loss for Ft. Wayne.

    * Wiggy didn't start but played the 2nd most minutes for Iowa (33). He went 6 for 13 for 23 pts.

    * Bubu Palo played for S. Falls vs. Iowa and had 12 pts in 29 minutes.

    * As I write this, Marial has gone 9 for 12 with 20 points in the FIRST HALF of Delaware's opener tonight.

    I doubt I'll be posting a lot on the G League guys but there were some noteworthy performances on their opening weekend. THT had his first game action since his college season and had a strong line: 25 MIN, 16 PTS, 6-13 FG, 2-5 3 PTS, 7 REB, 5 AST and 2 TO.

    Marial and Naz both had big games on Saturday for their G League teams. Check out Shayok's line: 30 MIN, 34 PTS, 14-24 FG, 3-7 3PT, 6 REB, 3 AST and 4 TO.

    Mitrou-Long: 35 MIN, 26 PTS, 10-18 FG, 4-6 3PT, 3 REB, 10 AST and 2 TO. Some Naz highlights:



    It doesn't feel like people got too wrapped up in defense in the G League this weekend.

    Abdel Nader and Deonte Burton both got DNPs for OKC Thunder in NBA (non) action last night.

    Monte and the Nuggets play in Minneapolis this afternoon (2:30 CT). Maybe some Cyclone fans will go to support Tae.

    Matt Thomas and Raptors take on the Lakers tonight and Talen should be dressed. Hopefully, Matt will shoot like he did for the Lakers' summer league team a few summers ago.

    Big Thanks for all the updates you do, certainly appreciate it, really excited for these guys!!

    Most are on really good teams.

    Can’t imagine how cool it is for THT, at 18 years old, to be a part of this Laker team.

    18! I know - isn't that amazing? I think he has a chance in a couple years to be a pretty good NBA player. At 18, I was still trying to find where my classes were at ISU.

    I am going to the Timberwolves-Nuggets game today. Drove up from Ames yesterday to friends place on the lake. I will be wearing Nuggets hat and CYCLONE Mens Basketball shirt. Looking forward to seeing Monte live.

    Honestly, I’m just a big fan of THT.

    The physical skills were their in spades, like a lot of players, but he recognized he needed to get out of his comfort circle to prepare himself for the NBA mental grind.

    He and his Mom knew he had the physical talent to play at the highest level but thankfully also got the right advice that playing in the NBA is a lot tougher mentally than physically.

    They recognized it would be beneficial for him to step out on his own a little with a staff they trusted rather than worrying about being loyal to his friends and family and being surrounded by people telling him how great he is.
