    Did D'Antoni have any words of encouragement for Nolan Smiff or Jon Scheyer?

    Well, he didn't tell them to pound sand. I would rather not be mentioned than to have a coach tell me I'm terrible. That's just me...

    12 points, 7 assists, 1 steal and 25 minutes.

    not quite "pound sand" numbers, little boy.

    D'Antoni chose to give Farmar an extra day's rest and then start him against the Cavs.

    "Farmar deserves the play," D'Antoni explained, simply.

    That leaves Marshall, who averaged 11.9 points and 11.5 assists while shooting 44.1 percent from 3 in 15 games as a starter, coming off the bench.

    "Kendall needs to right now find his rhythm as a backup to Farmar, and he will," D'Antoni said before the Cavs game. "He’ll get plenty of room. But we just decided to go the other way."

    Marshall had just five points, three rebounds and three assists in 21 minutes against Minnesota.

    "He should be used to it," D'Antoni said of Marshall playing a reserve role. "Everybody in the league is like that. You got to get a niche. That’s what he did in Phoenix, so that’s what he has to do. It’s a little bit of an adjustment, but there’s no way he’s going to play 38 minutes on every team and be able to just have the ball all the time -- not yet. He’ll have to compete."
