Happy Fat Tuesday Big Blue Nation!! I will be bringing you the Morning Scratching Post here on I’ll be covering the NBACats news from a variety of avenues. I encourage you the reader to let your voice and interest be heard in the comment section of each blog.

NBACats in the News

– What is it about the Houston Rockets and utilizing undersized NBACats (Chuck Hayes and Patterson) as productive centers.  Head Coach Kevin McHale had this to say:

“I thought Patrick did a really nice job in the pick-and-roll coverage with (Grizzlies center Marc) Gasol, and we played that small lineup quite a bit to close the game,”

Patrick was also quoted in the article and had this to say:

“Because I am at the five-man position I am the biggest guy on our team on the court, therefore my responsibility is greater,” Patterson said. “As far as stopping the ball from penetrating to the basket to doing a better job on screen-and-rolls, most of the time I’m guarding someone who’s bigger than me at the five, so keeping them off the glass and giving my teammates a chance to get rebounds (is paramount).”
