Young Lakes couldn't close out HOU.
Also had a lot of trouble running inbounds plays late 3Q and OT.
Might have helped if Luke was still there (ejected 3Q) instead of Shaw(?)   It's going to be a tough playoff road for the Lakes if they are 6-8 seed.  Though outside of GS, unclear who else is going to be a playoff juggernaut.  DEN inexperienced; Rustbrook prone to bad shooting with an iffy OKC bench; POR looks like a regular season team; HOU could be deadly, though their defense has slipped; Spurs old & slow and more a regular season team.


Remember when LeBJ seemed indestructible?
Just missed his 13th game with a groin strain.
Remember when Kobe was going to pass Kareem for most points ever?
Old guys get injured, recover slower, and when things drop off, the cliff is often precipitous. 

CP3 just missed his 14th game.
And look at poor Dirk.  Barely can get on the court, 3-17 FG in his last 4 games, every shot a 3 out of necessity.   His season high is 16 mins and he went 0-10 FG in that one for 0 points.  He's a mummy now.

No Lonzo.

I was specifically referring to the inbounds plays.

I still don't like Ingram much.  There's talent there, but also sloppiness.  And a too-cool-for-school attitude or whatever vibe I'm picking up.

Was watching the Clips the other day and Shy-Gorgeous was doing Sean Livingston post-ups and shooting over the smaller Scurry.  Since he doesn't really have a 3-point shot yet, Livingston would be a good model for him.  (SGA is shooting 35% on 3's, but just 1.5 hoists a game).  SGA is basically what we hope for in Franc.  Not that ShyGuy is there yet, but he shows definite promise on both ends.

Not sure SGA is as good as Frank long term.

Monk is one dimensional and not all that good.

Monk looks limited.
Might take years before he finds his game (akin to Jeremy Lamb who has supplanted him) ... if he has one.

Monk has been averaging 18 minutes all season

Ar 20, improved over 19.....

Knoxish?  Different player, but sure - when speaking of levels.

Monk hasn't started a game.
He's an undersized SG who can't shoot.
The only NBA skill he's demonstrated is FT shooting and he rarely gets to the line. 

Maybe on defense Knox and Monk have something in common (for now).  You'd be better off comparing Monk to Franc.

Never said he did

Like Mudiay he gets 20 points per 36 minutes

I like Frank but I'd definitely take Shai over him. SGA just understands the game so well.

Yep.  And has a nice bounce to him.
Been slumping some in January, but it's a long season for rooks.
And not easy to be a starting PG as a rook.


Uber-Watch:
Last 5 games averaging 20 & 7 boards on 48% / 42% shooting in 28 bench minutes.  Toss in roughly one block and one steal.
