UPDATE: Boring game tonight! The Stampede were blown out, and both Claver and Barton's performances were forgettable. Claver scored 8 points on 3-11 shooting in over 30 minutes. Barton scored 18 points with 8 rebounds, but shot 7-22 to get there. For you Coby Karl fans, he also scored 18. on 5-14 shooting.
UPDATE 2: While the Blazers were getting thumped in Portland, Barton scored 21 on 9-17 shooting for Idaho, in a losing cause against the Auston Toros. Claver added 15 points and 7 rebounds. Box score here.
Welcome to the bonus Gameday Thread! Earlier today, Victor Claver and Will Barton were sent to the Idaho Stampede of the NBA's D-League. Since they'll be playing tonight, and it's a quiet Friday evening, feel free to hang out and enjoy some extra basketball action. Don't ask me to preview this game, I have no idea who's favored and what their strengths and weaknesses are!
Thanks to a new deal between the NBA and Google, the game is being shown live tonight on YouTube, so you don't have to go anywhere, just hang out and watch it here.
When there aren't technical difficulties.
If you'd prefer to have the game open in a different tab, or want to watch it on your TV (and who could blame you!), here's a direct link to the game on YouTube as well.
Enjoy the game! Don't be expecting a recap. :) -- Tim
