Maybe I missed it, but why has KCP only played 4 minutes tonight?


Maybe he had the beegees


More time for Rondo.

Dwight used to be in some of the closing lineups earlier in the season and did well, wonder why they have not gone back to that.

Kuzma was hurt
Forced Vogel to go big
We were better big
When Rondo and Kuzma were out we were better

So my biggest concern is of late defense has been poop...much better efforts earlier in year. Renember when they had a 90% contest rate vs the heat? They are so far removed from that defensive minded team

Defense and attention to detail has really been lacking lately. Not sure what the heck is going on, but they need to come out refocused after ASB.

So basically:

1. Pray for Collison
2. Lebron and AD have to play for 45+ minutes in the playoffs
3. Playing Rondo and Kuzma combo will get the Lakers eliminated from the playoffs.

We will not survive the negative minutes of that Rondo/Kuz combo in the playoffs.

LeBron was playing some defense early in the season
When he plays defense we are on another level
He's back to Lecoast on d

Hes not been using dwight properly of late imo. We keep getting shoved with piss poor lineups lately which likely contributes to our crap defense effort of late

KCP and Dwight oddly removed from the rotation. Barely held on against gleaguers.

Ah good point. So once again politics get in the way. Dwight and Caruso were instrumental to closing games when Rondo and Kuzma were unavailable. Maybe they should go back to being unavailable.

No doubt, the defensive slippage is due to needing a break.

But the Rondo/Kuzma combo minutes is a major, major problem.

Btw rondo minutes are given to get a ballhandler when lbj rests (or to give him a rest from that)...but its clear they just need someone else to do this.

Rondo and Lebron should never get any minutes together and really Caruso, Cook or even Avery Bradley can bring the ball up the court.

You’ll notice that when Rondo isn’t in the game a lot of other players are bringing the ball up. The moment Rondo gets in everything has to go through him.

Beating the Warriors by 5 is technically a win but a poor showing really.
