    Smart defensive rotation. No 2 players closing on a shooter leaving a wide open man. It helps the biggest dunmies are not playing tonight.

    Looking like a competent NBA team again. This is becoming a trend.

    Agreed. Really thought we’d have a fire sale to ensure tanking at the deadline.

    he is being asked to do a lot. create for others, score. hopefully an offseason he can work on his cardio and come back with a vengence.

    Game is close, which I'm not complaining. Test will be after the half or after 3q.

    K-Mart is improving quite a bit since the beginning of the season. Plenty-o-upside.

    Kind of hard to properly tank when the opposition always resting/load managing their best players against you.

    Man.... I really like KMJ.
    He just turned 20.
    16/8 as a baseline in 3-4 yrs is definitely achievable.

    hmm sounds familiar...

    in all seriousness though, i'm not worried about his defense, he's got the tools. with more experience he'll make fewer mistakes
