    2013-14 NBA D League Thread

    As always, this is not one of my favorite threads to start, but the season is near and there are going to be Duke players involved, so it seems like a good idea.

    Seth Curry has had two good preseason games for Santa Cruz so far. In the first one on Thursday against Reno, he had 28 points (5-10 from 3), 5 assists, and 5 steals in 38 minutes in a 113-92 win. Tonight he had 27 points, 5 rebounds, and 7 assists in 43 minutes in a 103-97 win.

    Here is about to fire up one of those 27 points. He played well for most of the game. Few rough spots, mostly on defense, but good overall.
    He got poked in the eye or something in the 4th quarter and had to leave, but came back in after a few minutes.

    LT?

    Is LT gonna play in the D-League this year? Are there any other alums that are gonna play besides Seth and (maybe) LT?
    I wouldn´t be surprised to see Ryan Kelly play a few D-League games this year, even though he has shot the ball very well in the limited time he´s gotten so far in LA in just 2 games (2-3 3FG i think).
    The way the season started for Austin Rivers, i thought he might play some D-League, but he´s had a couple of really solid games in a row, so he may very well, earn some more PT in the Show.
    I also thought Mason might spend some time going back and forth, but he has also been very solid in his last 3 or 4 games, so maybe he´ll have a solid roster spot.
    Everybody else that i can think of is decidedly not playing in the D-League this year.

    If anyone is coming this way and wants to catch one of these games, send me a PM. It's only a 10 minute drive for me and it's a very nice place to watch a game. Only 3000 seats in a building expressly built for a basketball court.

    Seth will get a chance. Great shooters are hard to find. He looks like he has really worked on his ball handling as well.

    Ryan had 24 points and 9 rebounds in 37 minutes as Los Angeles lost 124-114 to Rio Grande Valley:

    Those who get the Time Warner Cable Sports LA channel can see a replay of the game at 5:00pm Eastern tomorrow.

    I guess Ryan will be yo-yoing between the NBA and D League for a portion of the season at least.

    Seth's game tomorrow at 9:00pm Eastern can be seen here:

    Local paper reported his Mom and Brother came to watch and he was double teamed most of the night. D-league is interesting how they play a visiting team twice in a weekend sometimes to reduce travel costs.

    In front of his mom and brother Stephen, who had the night off from the Golden State Warriors, Curry finished with a double-double, dishing out 11 assists to go with his 10 points. Sitting early with two fouls, Curry had just three points in the first half, but the rest of the squad helped do damage.

    "I think he rallied," said Warriors head coach Casey Hill. "I said to him 'You can't score 36 points playing the same team and see the same coverage.' They are going to pay attention to you a bit more."

    Sounds impressive to me. Anyone have an idea on what this means for him getting picked up by a team?

    Yeah, I'm impressed too. Those are some pretty big numbers - and he is displaying more than just scoring prowess.

    It's obviously going to be tough to crack the Warriors rotation with guard/wing youngsters peppering the roster like his brother, Thompson, and Barnes as well as seasoned vet Iguodala. But if he continues to put up these kind of numbers, I don't think there's any question that he will get a chance on the roster. And if not in Golden State, then somewhere. I meannnnn...

    28 / 5 / 5 steals
    27 / 7 / 5 boards
    36 / 6
    10 / 11
    23 / 10 / 6 boards

    ...for current averages of 23 and 9 with just under 4 boards and 2 steals on 49% shooting (37% from three) in 37 mpg.

    Meh. He's alright. I guess.

    Golden State bought the NBDL team that was in North Dakota and moved it to Santa Cruz to make it easy to have guys move back and forth between the teams. This has been a popular trend in major sports recently. The Braves AAA team is located in an Atlanta suburb for example.

    Last year there were multiple guys that went back and forth between the teams. So far this year, a couple guys have done the same, including 7-0 Dewayne Dedmon. Dedmon is one of these guys that grew late and didn't play much basketball before college. I think he only played one or two years in HS and had a relatively unremarkable couple years at USC. I saw him in one game at Santa Cruz and he has a lot of potential. As GS is thin at the post positions, Dedmon will continue to go back and forth as needed. The same thing will happen with Seth if GS needs him.

    However, he could also end up going the Mile Plumlee route. Miles was back and forth between the Indiana Pacers and the Fort Wayne NBDL team all last year. Then he got traded and is getting 20+ minutes a game with Suns.

    29.9, but who's counting? Shooting 37.5% from the line, however.

    I doubt you will ever see Seth, or any Curry, shooting 37.5% from the line.
    “Those two kids, they’re champions,” Krzyzewski said of his senior leaders. “They’re trying to teach the other kids how to become that, and it’s a long road to become that.”

    A Plumlee tradition.

    Seth had 18 points and 7 assists in 42 minutes as Santa Cruz lost for the first time 107-92 to Bakersfield. Seth started on fire and I thought he would have a really special game, but lost a bit of his rhythm when he got his first rest.
    Here is the boxscore:

    Seth vs Ryan tonight with the Warriors winning 122-112. Seth had 17 points, 5 rebounds, and 9 assists in 35 minutes and Ryan had 21 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists in 39 minutes, but both guys had trouble with turnovers.
    Boxscore:

    Assuming Ryan does not rejoin the big club, he can be seen here tomorrow at 7:00pm Eastern:
