Good outside shooting from Mo! Also 2/2 FTs makes him our best free throw shooter thus far.

Hopefully next season he adds more bulk to bang in low. He could alternate in the paint and on the perimeter and play like a Vucevic type center.

We've got to find a way to get him in lineups at the 4. He spaces the floor and brings much needed hustle. Wouldn't be surprised to see him crack the rotation before the end of the season.

With some more reps and consistent minutes, he can definitely crack the rotation by the end of the season.

He wouldnโ€™t need to play the 5 either yet. You can easily have a rotation of Chandler or McGee to start the 2nd quarter with him at the 4, Ingram, Hart, KCP, etc.

I have a hard time seeing him crack the rotation assuming weโ€™re healthy this season. And thatโ€™s ok. Letโ€™s hope he can get a lot of garbage minutes in blowout wins this year. Next year I fully expect him to be in the rotation considering we got no other 5 under contract and McGee has likely played himself into a decent payday.

Good to see him knock down a couple shots tho.

Man, dude is bad on defense when he can't get steals. I actually think he'll have to play PF to survive on that end, at least this season.

The offense is beautiful.

Hopefully he can get a steal every possession.

The moment when Mo got that first free throw and McGee and Chandler went wild was my favorite moment of the past 3 games for me xD

Good to see Mo get some minutes and show his stuff in an NBA game, even if it was garbage time with a blowout lead. I don't think he's rotation ready yet, but I do think he's got a lot of game in him once he gets stronger. The handles and some of the defensive weaknesses are a matter of playing time and experience IMO. Love his attitude, activity and ability to stretch the floor.

Because he made 3 pointers...vujacic was called the machine cause of his 3 point shooting ability, so Mo + machine = Mochine

that was my thought after watching today. I have always thought he would have to be a stretch 5.....but I think he will have to be a stretch 4. I do not think he will ever be able to defend the rim or 5 spot. Not sure I saw beautiful offense....he made a couple open shots which is great, but did not get to see him really have the opportunity to demonstrate much more once his obvious early nerves subsided.

the question you have to ask yourself is this...Is Mo Wags the K.love we never got via trade/FA?
