Rockets pick up fourth year options on contracts of Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas, source said. Both signed through 15-16.
How can I get Kostas Papanikolaou right and Adam Silver wrong? Holy Donatas Motiejunas!
That whole Motiejunas thing did not work so well. He takes a seat. Tarik Black in at center.
Dwight picks up his fourth foul 67 seconds into the second half. This time, Motiejunas checks in for him.
Six of the 10 players on the court now are lefties (Henry/Randle/Davis for the Lakers, Harden/Papanikolaou/Motiejunas for the Rockets).
As for the next moves, the contract options of Motiejunas and Jones will be picked up, as we reported early in camp, but not until Thursday.
Motiejunas hits his first shot, a falling, off-hand hook. A tougher shot than any of the 11 he missed on Wednesday.
TJones is 3 of 10, Papanikolaou 1 of 7 and Motiejunas 0 for 7. Maybe they should try their right hands for awhile.
Tarik Black, Donatas Motiejunas check in. Interesting (telling?) that with Dorsey back, Black is backup center tonight.
Anthony Davis playing aggressively on offense, demanding ball in isolation. Already 2 dunks and 13 points. Also blocked Motiejunas hook shot
Ish Smith coming back in the game for .. Motiejunas… obvious choice.
I'm confused. Since a summer league game has broken out, why isn't Motiejunas dominating? Perhaps Rockets ought to give him a touch.
Hakeem Olajuwon hung around today to put himself through shooting drills. Eventually, Motiejunas, Jones returned for class in Dream 101.
As ugly as this thing has been, Motiejunas and Smith have looked good. Have combined for 20 on 9 of 14 shooting.Game tied with 11 mins left.
McHale said he wants to see Donatas Motiejunas provide some defense and rebounding at the 4 - would like to see that spot have more depth.
Appears Francisco Garcia (ankle) out for Dominicans vs. US today. Wise to target Thur. Good days for Rockets Motiejunas, Papanikolaou in WC.
