    Letís go 3-0 on this road trip and hopefully rest LeBron a little. He looked tired in the second half of the game yesterday. Exerting too much energy on defense and his outside shot wasnít falling as a result. Vogel should also make a conscious effort to get Kuz involved.

    Agreed.. I donít think Lebron can keep this up the entire season. We need another ball handler to take some of that stress off of him.

    Agreed. Too much for him. Hope Rondo comes back soon. Caruso has to do a better job on getting people involved when he is the primary ball handler. Lol now we have too many shooters and not enough playmakers.

    Agree about Caruso, but he's also been seeing some odd minutes.

    Expected to see him being subbed in to run the point against the other team's second unit, but he's also seeing minutes with LeBron on the floor. I think the idea is that Caruso's defense can compensate for Bradley being out, and that's not a bad idea, but it complicates the role Caruso is playing in his own head.

    (Bron as playmaker, so Caruso is more of a 2 in that lineup, and then he starts looking like KCP.)

    Totally agree, but he has to get used to filling in when teammates are injured and adapt to the role. Agreed. He is more of a 2 than a 1. Maybe we can trade Daniels/Cook for a primary ball handler. I know Iggy has played that role for Golden State. Maybe kill two birds with one stone.

    We have to hope there's someone on the team or in his 'camp' who can talk to LeBron about pacing himself and about shot selection. We can get away with bad shots against bad teams, but Bron can't go 8-23 and also 5-10 from the line against the best teams.

    Go Lakers!

    Caruso struggles against starting talent PGís, heís more of our 3rd string PG. Vogel tried to bring him in early yesterday and subbed him in for Lebron but didnít really work out. Not too worried but we definitely could use Rondo..

    Bruh....

    I didn't say Caruso was Bradley's equal on defense

    What I said is that when Bradley goes out, Caruso seems to be getting time on the floor, and I think that's because Caurso is a decent defender. So unless you're proposing a lineup where Bradley plays 48 minutes I don't think I'm saying something particularly controversial.

    I'm all for the 48 mins for Bradley.

    Caruso should get a ton of mins as the starting PG. Cook won't be able to guard Zach Lavine and Coby White although I like it when Dwight and Caruso are together on the floor because of the the hustle and grit that they bring.
