Kuzma is a trash basketball player, that is all...

It’s obvious to see certain aspects that George and Leonard need a point guard

No way we shouldn’t always run two man game with George and Luke or Luke and Kawhi. When all three on the floor it should be Luke roaming open for jumpers and cuts

All of that depends on if Luke plays aggressively and doesn't pass out of shots or hesitates. It would be buckets all day but he needs to understand that Lue has given him the green light to let it fly when he's in and shoot it when he has the shot, no questions asked

Didn't get to see much of the game (busy with Easter stuff), but good to see them taking care of business against the Lakers' scrubs.

Lot of times I see the set is run to the corner but he absolutely could come out of that corner more to demand looks

Rondo still plus+2 in 13 minutes despite 4 fouls and 4 turnovers :-D

[1-3 shooting, 3 assists and 2 steals]

That was a game we were supposed to win and we won it. Now Lue has to figure out which guard gets less minutes. I think its Reggie who gets a cut in playing time. Good game from Morris. First time he's played well against the Lakers since joining the team

pickup game, not much to draw from it

Blazers Tuesday and Suns on Thursday--then 8 of the next 10 against teams .500 or below :)

Great defense but the ball movement communication is still in the works

Tough outing for him, but good game to get a feel against a weakened Lakers squad where you can be positive on the floor even if you aren't that good because the rest of the guys will be able to outperform them.

I'm expecting him to be up and down for about 10 games at least, might annoy some people, but it is less likely that he's just seemless like that. There are only around 20 games left, so his last 10 games are going to be the important stretch.

How many **** times do we need to see PG make 4-5 careless TO's a game before admitting he is the worst option for us as a PG?

Pleas have Mann and Rondo take ALL his time as a PG. PG is best as a spot up guy, that is it. Rebounding and defense.

--
Thank god Morris looks great. As said, he is by far the 2nd best offensive option on this team. 6th in the NBa in 3pt FG%? Jesus Christ.

Otherwise nice game, I am very happy with how Rondo looked.

he definitely did not bring much today. Most days he plays same level as Morris, and he'd be much better as a spot up shooter than a ball handler. If Rondo can settle in and play point guard 25ish minutes a game, that'd be good for everyone

Morris will have more responsibilities with PG13 hurt
