Caruso was a +23 tonight. I was so nervous when LeBron went to the line in the 4th but they went in, 15 points in the 4th.

More Caruso seems like a good idea
USA Celtics in full effect. Amazing chemistry building experience right there for the main core of the team


Proceeds to finish 7th and shames the entire nation!

Hopefully his shot not falling is just a cold streak. Because he's shooting worse than Rondo right now.

Nice comeback in the 4th. Another good road win, to make it a perfect trip.

Ingram still clankin. And Lonzo couldn't play, as he's got the sh&**s. So, little has changed. Good to see the old crew. I hope something good comes of them.

Davis showed the old crowd what they lost. That steal at the end reminded me of Ariza's handy-work. We come home with a respectable 16-2 record, and I can turn my attention to turkey, gravy, and the rest. We'll see the wizards at home on Fri.

Typical failure to finish or no-shows by Ingram Hart and ball.
40 point game and key defense and steals by AD
Yup we got the better end of the deal.

He shot 1-1 tonight. So he was perfect. It would prob be nice to see a guy who plays 25 minutes take more than 1 shot, grab 1 rebound, and have 2 assists.

I get there are those guy that 'don't fill the stat sheets'....but c'mon. Gotta be more productive out there in 25 minutes.

Yeah...I'm actually at my computer right now. Don't see too much of anything, tbh.

Caruso is fine. I don't think he's a great player, but he's improving and considering where he was a year ago, it's awesome. We really lack at the PG position, and he's helping much better than I expected.

I'm not gonna blow the guy. He took 1 shot, grabbed 1 board, and had 2 assists in 25 minutes. I'd like to see more. Somewhere between calling the player 'a beast' and "hating" there's this VVVVVAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSTTTTTTT range. Get out of the Caruso temple now and then. You'll see a whole bunch of guys who aren't enamored with him...but who root for him, and think he's a wonderful story.

Refs eventually have to start getting Bron and AD on the line right? I mean these guys are getting beat up left and right and the refs swallow their whistle. Just breathing on James Harden and he gets a foul call. The disparity is quite amazing.

Nearly above the coveted 60% mark for the season.


He’s thriving in his role as third scorer this year. I’d like to see him get more minutes and more shots

He will get more minutes, just remember he just came off injury, give it time :)

He'll be 20+ in no time. But that's King Kuz for ya

3pt defense is again an issue. We are letting some scrubs go off on us again. Nice 4th Q though, I wish we could defeat lowly teams without heroics in the last minutes. And now the hard schedule begins.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

The LeBron/Caruso lineup is now up to a +18.4 net rating. Caruso doesn't need to stuff the stat sheet, he played elite defense last night. Last night in 18 minutes, the LeBron/Caruso lineup had a 52.1 net rating. 127.8 offensive rating and a 75.7 defensive rating.

The LeBron/Caruso lineup has a 95.0 defensive rating. They've played 175 minutes together in 16 games, so a pretty good sample size.

More LeBron + Caruso, please!

Wow that is pretty telling.. Caruso is just a smart player - just knows his role and plays good D.. His shot will start falling too once he gets a better rhythm.
