    Yes!

    Very happy with Mozgov's play, Randolph also played well. Didn't try to do too much.

    Between Gallinari, Felton, and Stoudemire, we should be OK if AR and Mozgov just focus on rebounding and try not to do too much.

    I think AR's biggest problem was that his lack of maturity made him think that he had to impress on the court via scoring a ton of points.

    We all know that there's more to being a good basketball player than getting the ball into the basket and AR demonstrated that he's OK with that since he only took one shot in those 8 minutes and instead dedicated his effort and energy to rebounding and blocking shots. I think he knows what he has to do, he just needs to adapt a bit and work himself into the fact that on a team with Amar'e, Gallo, Felton, Chandler, he's going to have to prove himself and maturity is a big part of it

    WOW. I didn't understand the Mozgov selection coming into the season. I thought, here is a guy that needs more time in the D and Euro Leagues. He's too green. Too uncoordinated, too much of a bruiser, too many faults and rough edges.

    But I have seen the light. I know that this was against a garbage detroit team, but the boy can play. Now i know why they wanted to start him in the beginning of the season.

    But the call to keep him on the bench was right. Now he has matured and developed, watching games, playing against Amar'e and Turiaf, talking and being involved in games, even tho he wasn't playing. I think he's ready for more minutes and I know Amar'e and Turiaf will welcome him into the fold. Both of them are feeling the added wear and tear this season has been putting on them and Mozgov getting siginifact backup minutes would be fantastic. Even more fantastic if he works himself into the starting line-up, putting Amar'e back at the 4.

    AR is also proving that his talents can be controlled enough to be effective. the guy is too good to be kept off the floor for long. if he does go in a trade, metro was right and we will be sorry.

    Really a great game all around, hard to be ecstatic over a win against this pistons team, but it is very encouraging.
