It was idiotic to not play him for this long, hopefully he continues to get time.

The only reason he got in today had to be because management needed to showcase him to a prospective trade partner.

It was GREAT to see him out there on the court tonight. And I thought he did really well in limited minutes. He should not have been in the doghouse. No reason for that. I hope MDA will continue to play him. He deserves to be out there for a least 5-10 minutes a game.

I dug the Kaman/Sacre lineup defensively.

MDA said that Kaman will be back in the rotation after being happy with how he played last night, which is good

Big of him after letting him sit way too many games inexplicably. Every time he's in a game he plays the same. Not afraid to get dunked on, at least goes up to contest. Hustles. Has moves and an offensive game rivaling Pau and a better J than Pau.

Hill gets minutes one game then very few the next, Kaman plays well then we don't see him at all. Don't understand. Given how poorly we rebound, Kaman is slow but at least he can put a body on people

Pau is out tonight with a respiratory infection, I would assume this is an opportunity for Kaman to have a big night and earn some more time.

Honestly, besides play making what does Pau do bettter than Kaman at this point in their careers? Kaman is a better defender, and better scorer at the moment.

MDA said Kaman had an "okay" game when asked about his performance. Also said he was "rusty".

Kinda messed up when you DNP the guy for a month and he comes in and pulls down 17 boards with some blocks. I think that's a bit better than "okay".

Seriously?

Kaman was a BLACK HOLE offensively. Man that was hard to watch.

Didn't realize he shot that poorly. The game kind of had gotten out of hand anyways. Can't deny he did a good job rebounding.

And that's the other thing - seems like MDA was only assessing Kaman through the offensive frame. He didn't commend his rebounds or blocks but was quick to point out offensive shortcomings. Kaman still benefited the team.

Kaman had a terrible game. I put the blame on D'antoni since Kaman is obviously rusty from all the unwarranted DNP-CD's.

But I don't think there's anything wrong with D'antoni saying Kaman did "okay." That's a nice way of putting it and I'm sure Kaman himself would have been much more critical of his game, despite his solid rebounding performance.

This.

Watching the game it was easy to see that Kaman was a net negative out there. He only rebounded well because both teams shot so damn poorly. I'm not sure he repeats a rebounding performance like that. I am however sure that he would shoot a similarly low percentage if he got the green light to shoot like this every game.

I spoke too soon. Without a pg out there, we do miss Pau's play making ability which Kaman lacks.

Kaman's postup game used to be okay until he decided to start chucking 2's. Now his postup game absolutely stinks.

He played well defensively last night. Hopefully that continues.
