We just need to grind out a win. Heat's a well coached team.

Miami running this zone as if we're some inexperienced young team.

Agree... he's been a huge negative at this point. Given he missed all of camp and the preseason, he's basically playing catchup.


Question I have is, is this just a result of rust? Or is it a result of him playing on a team that has ramped up the intensity about 1000%?


He was a fairly consistent shooter from deep in his first year. Last year not so much but he was bothered by lower leg injury's most of the second half. He's always been a streak shooter it seems. My guess is we'll see a 6-8 from 3 game soon from him.

For me he becomes a lot more valuable when he learns he shoots 55%+ inside the arc and does more of that.


Thing about Kuz is, he's always been better in open games... He still seems to tighten up a bit in close games... And all our games have been close until like the last quarter.

So maybe it doesn't matter too much how he scores... He's just got to be a volume scorer for us off the bench.
But I still think with this team, 3pt shooting would be his ideal contribution.

He seems to be a better option with smaller, faster teams.

Our bread and butter is clearly attacking and owning the paint... Not sure why we don't just get comfortable with it and live there.

Kuzma's misses aren't even close.
