Ugly game by both teams may not be a coincidence... Defensive focus can do that. So far we're winning ugly.

While Kuz isn't shooting well he is not letting it effect his play on the other end which has been very solid.

Lol that guy from Lethal ruined what little semblance of a jumpshot Kuz had.


Kuz had a really nice looking shot as a Rookie... I have no idea why he didn't just work on improving it instead of focusing on a post game and taking guys off the dribble his second season... Injuries were a part of it but I think the biggest thing was he wanted to steal the starting spot from Ingram, and didn't think he could do it just being a jump shooter... Honestly, I think he was wrong.

Since then he's just not been good, and his shot isn't as pretty either. So I don't know if you can put a finger on one thing...

But it shouldn't be that hard to get it back.

He didn't have to steal a spot from Ingram when he outplayed Ingram both years.

Backstage LAkers showed that Kuz was asked to develop a post game by MAgic. KCP was also asked to change his diet, stop drinking, and lose weight by MAgic. Magic had a vision for them :lol:

Crushing pick by Dwight on that layup. I love it.

We need to get Green out and put McGee back in for the rest of the game.

Rondo looks like he's had just about enough of Howard's **** on the bench.

Lots of warts, but have to respect the defense. Effort and rotations were on point all night.

Our D with Caruso and Davis with LeBron, Green and Bradley is suffocating.

Yeah, I have to believe this team will start shooting better. It makes no sense. Our spacing is good, our shooters are getting good looks, etc.

Jimmy has been very passive offensively when Lebron's been on him

The activity is great. They get their hands on a lot of balls and scrap.

My theory is that we have a pretty mediocre collection of shooters. The only guy I have confidence that the ball is going in when he shoots is Green, and even he tends to be somewhat streaky.
