    Duhon should start. They're starting Morris presumably to give him a look, but he's got a horrible ast/TO ratio, especially for a PG. By contrast, Duhon's is one of the best in the league. Turnovers happen to be one of the, if not THE, main problem with the Lakers this year.

    We need to trade for point guard. Nash is out for a while, and we need a suitable backup

    I want to see him on the court badly, but i don't want him back before he's ready and have him with a lingering injury that goes into the playoffs.

    I'm not counting on seeing him until maybe a couple of games before the Xmas day matchup with NY.
    Assuming we can actually make the playoffs. :/

    Our roster on paper was so nice, but these PG injuries and coaching/offensive (and even defensive) changes have them all confused. Once they figure out what kind of team they are (and get rid of Pau for a more athletic, quick big man) then they'll win more consistently.

    Miami didn't win right out of the gate when they got LeBaby and Bosh. They were struggling into mid-season if I remember correctly. Regardless, people thought they couldn't play together and that there was too much star power on the roster. Well, they got to the finals 2 years in a row, right? I think the Lakers will be fine. Here's to hoping for Atlanta to change their minds on J-smoove.

    Nah, I think their problem is FT shooting. In 8 losses, the margin of missed to made free throws was larger than their deficit in the game. Ergo, if they could shoot some damn FT's they would have a very different record right now.

    Expect Nash to be out for a while. Bones need time to heal after their broken.
    Darrell Arthur played nearly eight minutes in the game versus the Lakers last Friday ...

    Weren't you watching ?

    Stop quibbling you two ... I believe the above highlighted comments from both of you are correct ...

    Duhon seems very comfortable in the offense [ unlike many others with a learning curve ], he is shooting pretty darn well [ 44 FG%; 39 3PT% ], and he is taking care of the ball -- assist-to-TO ratio of greater than 4-to-1 -- so he is an asset to be exploited, at least for now. Morris can contribute, too [ perhaps by playing some 2 guard ], but he should probably be handling the ball a tad less until he has a fuller grasp on all things offense, both macro and micro ...

    The Lakers need to cut TOs as a team down from 17-18 a game to 10-14 per contest and the wins will start to mount, especially if guys like Morris, Jamison, and Hill can stop being sucked down into the FT shooting 'abyss' that is Dwight Howard [ even Pau needs to shoot FTs better than 76%, although Gasol cracking 80% again may be a pipe dream ]. The Lakers do not usually get much in the way of breaks from NBA officials, so when the referees actually are sending L. A. to the line, the players need to damn well step up and produce ...

    Agreed. I think they are bringing Duhon off the bench to help bolster that second unit as well..
