: Let's pump the brakes. They have played 8 games. They have been in virtually every game down to the end. The have had players out on suspension. The GM assembled an unbalenced roster with weak outside shooting and isoft defenders. It would take any coach several months to get the best out of this group.
The three point shooting is about league average since Rondo left the starting lineup. It's not costing the Lakers as much as the lineups are.
The team may have no one to box out so Luke is off the hook there. However, the defensive game planning and sub patterns are clueless - only the awful Atlanta Hawks have tried more 5-man lineups. Even if Luke does know what he's doing, its not apparent by watching his team.
He doesn't understand that multiple players who are ball-dominant, but who don't often score on assists will have no chemistry in halfcourt. Currently the Lakers are last in the league in halfcourt points per possession.
Ingram on CJ McCollum tomorrow with Kuzma at the 3? Get ready for a "rout of this world".
