Good to see Tim Frazier has been set free.  I quite like the guy, but ops have been few for him the past couple years.  Last 7 games, he averaged 8 assists and 9 points and 4 boards in 30 mins. 
The guy is feisty and good on the PnR.  Frees up Jrue to play his combo guard game, much like Rondo did last year.

Might be too slight to play in the playoffs, mind you. Like Trey Burke.

Frazier actually plays hard on D, but too hard, and fouls overplaying.

NOPe isn't going far as configured.
Recently they saw ETwaun miss potential game winners.
Their bench is weak.
Using Frazier to control pace and operate the offense steadies things and frees up JRue to play hard on both ends.
Seems NO needs to take a chance, which is probably why they gave Frazier a go.

I want to see them with him starting at Point.  He just needs to settle down, not foul manically, not shoot too much, run the offense.
Frazier is a good penetrator and can slip passes into tight spaces.

His creeping age, the fact he's gotten little use the past two years (I thought WASh should have used him much more), and we already have Burke and a PG logjam is why I haven't been touting him lately.  But I think the guy has talent and can be a solid 15+ min backup in this league.

Big one on the schedule wednesday night in the land of Cleve.  Winner gets to keep playing and a set of steak knives.  Second place is you're fired.




Same night, 90 minutes later:  Atlanta @ Dallas      The TreyTL vs My name is Luka

Kanter only got 18 minutes last night.  Mitchell got 19. 
Vonleh played 30 minutes.  That's 67 C/PF minutes out of 96.
The 29 other "BIG" minutes went to the likes of Kevin Knox.

If KK becomes our small ball 4 (Shawn Marion esque)... Then Mitchell and Noah are our bench bigs.

There won't even be time for a Kanter.

He knows when he puts me at the 4, Ive got to go out and rebound, Knox said. Im in kind of a big-man position so Ive got to go down there, I have to fight in the paint. So hes really been stressing it, and I have to be consistent with it and get eight, nine, 10 every single game. Especially at that 4 position.

When I rebound more, the whole game revolves around that and I play really well because it helps me start the break and gets the ball moving really well. I just think when I rebound more, I play really well. And talking to Coach, Ive just got to do it consistently. Its hard as a rookie, but thats the next step having a good game and back it up the next game.

Asked if
he prefers power forward over small forward, Knox added: Its a little bit easier because I can rebound more, but thats not an excuse. I should rebound wherever Im at. Both positions really, I can impact both.

Even if we can use him as small ball PF, running KP, Vonleh, and Knox gives you every kind of threat with defense and rebounding. Youd see some Mitch and KP together as well as Knox at PF. Vonleh would have to get it done in 20-24 minutes, which hes proving he can. We still need one more guy who can really play in the frontcourt to fill out the rotation.
