Oh, Man great Game by the Young-Feller and strong by BIG-AL Jefferson after his injury. But in my opinion anyway itīs pathetic that Kanter just gets 3 minutes more than usual, when a player like Derrick Favors is missing who usual gets 23 minutes per game. Beyond that, this dude had a great game but just earning garbage gt like this. This guy is the 3rd Pick of this team, he is very talented and awesome strong. He deserves to play not lower than 20-25 minutes per game. This guy is a BULL...
Why they call him Big Al ? think of it...
"In practice Iím going against a big great player like Al," Kanter said. "So, whenever Iím on the court with other big men itís much easier."
No Kanter ,but more AL
Millsap is a smart player. Good to see him pulling out of his slump.
Jamison was laughable. So bad.
Kanter needs more minutes. I can't believe he played so few.
Jefferson was really horrible on D tonight. If his back is hurting him, then why is Corbin riding him for 30 minutes when Kanter was relatively effective?
EDIT: team D. Especially late in the first quarter.
Lakers are gonna blow up again if things don't turn around in the next 15ish games.
Marvin should have been in there at the end instead of Foye. There is almost absolutely no benefit of him closing games. You gotta have Marvins length in there.
I thought Jefferson's post D on Dwight was pretty good. That was his main focus. Howard only got 5 buckets and 11 pts. in 42 minutes.
Short list at #14: CJ McCollum, Dennis Schroeder, Archie Goodwin, Kelly Olynyk
Short list at #21: Steven Adams, Giannis Adetokunbo, Sergey Karasev, Nate Wolters
2nd round: Carmichael, Hardaway Jr., Adonis Thomas, James Southerland
Just a great effort in all phases. Have to hand it to Ty, the offense rolled through Sap because that was where the matchup was and he exploited it. But it's also worth noting that the cuts are starting to come. Several baseline cuts (shades of Ronnie B), seeing some high low darts with Sap or Al coming down from the top of the key. And nobody's trying to do too much out there.
Watching the Howard interview. He looks absolutely hopeless.
The defense was terrific, don't let the score fool you. Yeah, there were a few breakdowns, but the Lakers were just sizzling from 3. They weren't running anything. In the first, they had to call a TO to basically tell Kobe to get them back in the game. Every drop in the post to Howard is practically a waste. They swing the ball OK, but they just don't know how they're going to score if Kobe doesn't have it. I've never seen Hill up close but I like him a lot.
