Wow Smith throws it down!
And Delfino with some nice shots. I was skeptical of his great preseason but it looks like he could have a nice year. I might even look at starting Delfino and letting Parsons be our 6th man.
But still, our bench is going to get abused all season it would seem. Backup PG is going to be a huge issue and so is rebounding whenever Asik is not in the game.
I hope Smith is okay. He and Harden were really getting into a rhythm together and I thought his defense had been pretty good in the fourth quarter.
But I have to say that I really, really like this lineup with Delfino at the 3 and Parsons at the 4. Not only are they playing better defensively, but it gives them crazy floor spacing and 3-point shooting offensively. I bet this use this lineup a lot more as the season progresses.
You can tell it's going to take a while for this team to gel. When Harden's not one, who takes over the offense? Lin could I guess, and played well today. Parsons played well and Delfino's going to be hit or miss.
There were times in this game where the offense didn't have a clue. But that's to be expected. I'll take any win I can early in the season because of how new the team is with one another.
