-                NBA SUMMER LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME - JULY 21st

-  AFTER GOOD POST MOVES ALL WEEK MOTIEJUNAS GETS FEW TOUCHES IN THE POST

1. KINGS 77 ROCKETS 68 - EUROJOHNBBALL has been saying for years that Lithuanian 7 foot PF, Center Donatas Motiejunas needs a different NBA team to show his good POST MOVES, that he gets few chances to show in the Houston Rockets SMALL BALL 3 point shooting system, where he watches James Harden and in the past Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons JACK UP deep shots instead of looking inside first or hitting a cutting Motiejunas with a pass off pick and roll.     Last night in what is considered a MINOR game, of just NBA summer league, but it was the title game, Motiejunas must have thought he was in a Houston Rockets regular season game, as SUMMER LEAGUE guards and smaller players, were JACKING UP 3 point shots, going 5-24 from 3 point land and gave Motiejunas few chances to show his LAZAROS PAPADOPOULOS old-school type of POST MOVES.  Donatas shot 7-15 on FG's, 2-2 FT in the title game in 27 minutes of play, scoring 16 points, but was taken out in the 4th quarter, as Coach Chris Finch did what the Rockets do, GOING SMALL, with Tarik Black in the middle and Sacramento drove the lane for dunks and layups, getting back into the game and Finch only brought Motiejunas back late in the 4th.   Like EUROJOHNBBALL says, the Rockets are the wrong team for Donatas and he needs a trade.  The Rockets will not use his GOOD POST MOVES in the regular season, they will just stick him in the corner and use him like Kyle Korver type of 3 point shooter.  BOTTOM-LINE -  Trade the guy and let him use his POST MOVES.   Ray McCallum led the Kings with 29 points, on 9-15 FG, 3-7(3PT), 8-9 FT, 9 rebounds in the Kings title win.   Donatas Motiejunas will now join the Lithuanian national team, that will compete in the World Cup in Spain, Donatas will get POST TOUCHES with Lithuania, as teams in Europe play INSIDE-OUT.
