Kennard needs to stay aggressive. He kinda reverted to the way he had been playing before he started breaking out. He needs to hunt his shots and not be so passive

Rondo obviously will need some time to get a feel for his teammates, where they like to be, etc. The turnovers are not surprising with him getting used to a new team.

Zu is improving every game. PG more under control in this one. And even though he's rusty and unfamiliar with his teammates I already see what Rondo will do for this team on both ends of the floor. Much easier shots and less energy spent for the stars and the entire team

Kawhi only has 8. He just needs to come out in the 3rd and put these bums away

I like where we are despite ridiculous turnovers in the first half. We are playing good defense, although Lakers seem to be pretty miserable offensively, so I'd be cautious giving us too much credit.

We need a strong 3rd to put them away so we can rest the starters in the 4th. Even though we are coming off a 2 day rest, we could use whatever we can get ahead of tough matchups against Blazers and Suns this week.

PG can't [big toe] and Kawhi doesn't want to take over. They both want to be the straw that stirs the drink. But if this Marcus shows up for the playoffs, we have a shot.
