It would be nice if Theo would have a game that would restore some confidence in his potential.

Dort keeps hitting his shots. I wonder if he will be able to make them once teams will start defend on him but he clearly improved.

Don't think Dort has a high ceiling but his floor isn't that low. Best case scenario he would be a little bit better than Roberson (worse defender because of length but better offensive player).

Shoot. I accidentally deleted my post. Anyways, if he can just hit the wide open shot, I’ll be thrilled.

Poku’s block was one of the most impressive things I’ve seen from him. He stayed step for step with kuzma and then swatted it at the rim. I think he’s made some progress since the start of the year. It’s a shame his shot is so far off.

Kenrich Williams isn’t very good but he makes a couple of hustle plays every game that make me proud.

If Bazley continues struggling over the next ten or so games, I wouldn’t be opposed to putting Roby in the starting lineup.

He has a nice brain for basketball. Not the quickest, stronger or skilled player. Just a good brain, with good timing, and lenght.

WTF was SGA doing in the middle of that third quarter? We're down like 25 points and he just comes down trip after trip, iso, wild shot. Not a good look. No matter how out of reach the game is you got to still play the team game not just jerk off.

It gets kind of annoying. The lakers are huge. Shoot a jump shot.

There was a play in the first half which perfectly illustrated how bad that shot is currently. He had to hoist it from 3 late in the clock. Caruso closed out hard on him, he got it off but it appeared to just barely be over his outstretched hand. He's got like 7 or 8 inches on that dude. That contest shouldn't even be close.

(not that it matters for purposes of this discussion but he did miss the rushed shot)

No only that but he literally didn't pass once on these trips. It was the most selfish I've ever seen out of him.
