I would like to go with Len but I have to go with Russ. Tonight he played the way we want him to play, limiting his shots and turnovers.

When he can reduce the negative possessions then all the positive plays he makes stand out more.

Yes, it is Russ for me too. An outstanding game from him.

What Halcyon said. Hutch with a energy burst too. He had game tonight.
Beal hardly broke a sweat and was efficient even if his total was below average.

Westbrook forced the fast pace, and I believe that simply wore out the Lakers. Plus 14 assists to 2 to's - despite a couple of very bad plays in the 4th quarter. He also set an NBA record for most trip dubs in a month - gotta give him extra points for ya know - making history. Our centers put up excellent numbers mostly because he set up most of their buckets and free throws with outstanding passes. Beal played real well, and I considered him.

I voted Len, but it was really Russ, no question.

Happy to see Hutchison get some run & look like a player. He worked hard & defended well.

Once again some eye-popping shooting efficiency from the bench (except for Davis). Hutch, Lopez, Gafford & Smith combined to produce 36 points on 24 shots & 4 FTAs.

This one was Russ and it wasn’t even close. He played with bounce and intensity throughout and didn’t start WTF-Ing until late.

If that game exemplifies Russ' personality being imprinted on the team, then I want more of it. That, and few turnovers from Russ.
Russ is PotG.
