Didn’t get to watch but I had to do a double take when I saw McDaniels stats. I really wish I’d have watched this one. This team keeps finding ways to surprise me this season.

McDaniels is a good defensive fit at PF if PJ is starting at center. I like JB experimenting with this combo.

Jalen becoming a quality 3 point shooter really opens up possibilities. I hope this is for real. He's a liability on offense without it since he turns it over so often when he puts the ball on the floor, but a consistent corner three would be a game changer.

He just needs to embrace the role of either cutting without the ball or spotting up from that corner 3 that he himself admitted in the postgame that that's his preferred shot...because defensively he is clearly a game changer for us.

I'm also praying this is for real...maybe the reps he got at Greensboro got him ready for real NBA minutes...because you're definitely right that before he went to the G-League bubble every time he drove it was a turnover waiting to happen...hopefully he's learned to clean that up. Could turn into a quality role player for us.

for the record, i like reality king

he gets better every stint with the team. he always comes with something new and i love that. earlier this season he actually showed up wit a vague understanding of how help defense worked compared to last year. last night he was aggressively getting to his spots and even looking to take charges.

the flip side is he's always doing something new and stupid lol. but honestly, when guys don't repeat mistakes and screw up something different each time - its growth. he's another guy that i feel should be getting more time with lamelo too.
