Say what you want about LaMelo but his help defense is crazy good for a 20 year old

Lead would be safer if hadn’t missed all those free throws

Borrego looks a lot angrier than in recent seasons, that's good

It comes at a terrible cost 99% of the time.

It's awesome that Anthony Mason is the franchise leader in triple doubles. I remember our brief fling with point Mase fondly.

Every advanced metric has LaMelo as really freaking good, and still 20 years old. IDK I think some of you are just way too harsh on him, especially when Gordon takes as many early shot clock pull up 3's and not a peep

I mean he's ahead of Trae Young and Curry at the same age

Outrebounding us 55-32. 18 more offensive boards. It's a miracle we're leading.

It's unreal. It's so unbelievably bad.

Is there a worse FT shooter in the NBA today? - Serious question.

Hope JB goes with Nick here, and doesn't go small.

Think he's at 30% from the line now. That's a big problem

Nope, he's going small....

I hope this doesn't allow Harrell to go off over these final 5mins.

No reason for LaMelo to miss that pass on the pick and roll. He just needs to look a little more to his left to spot Miles.

When you're getting outrebounded by 27 you fight that by putting 6'6 Miles at Center according to Borrego. Highly disagree with it.

Looooootta time left with only a 6 point lead and Miles playing the 5...extremely dicey rn.
