Really looked like he was trying harder on off ball defense. I like!

He had some bad lapses though. However, one thing to note is how bad KCP's interior defense is. I mean he doesn't even try to offer resistance. One play Kuz had to help him so much that he got burned on the kick-out.


Kcp's on ball defense
Kcp's off ball defense

His first rotation the D wasn’t very good but in the second half he was much, much better. Like most rookies it might be another year or so before he figures it out.

He's got to be back in the starting lineup, they're much better with him as a starter.

About as weird as not noticing that we lost the four previous to that when he wasn't starting.

Doesn't even challenge interior shots, offers no resistance in the post and sometimes runs away when the shots aren't even dunks at times. He should be taking a lot more charges.

Ok. We're using different logic meters.

Kcp's on ball defense
Kcp's off ball defense


really:-?

I think KCP is actually a poor on-ball defender. For a guy with shut down defensive reputation, I've seen very few reputable defender who consistently gets blown past by so easily. I think it has to do with bad at reading the development of play and having a poor reaction time. Also, I don't like his team defense either.

However, I think he is an excellent off the ball man defender. Excellent ball denying defense(although he can get burn by backdoor cut), great at chasing shooters/scorers through screens. His defensive skill set seems to fair well against Rip Hamilton type players, someone like Klay Thompson(also against Curry when he is off the ball). He seems to be a good screen defender. Love his overall energy and hustle though.

He truly is a mixed bag on both ends of the court imo. He is a fine player/defender for a young team that lives off of energy and youth, but
he isn't really a good piece on contending team.

4 out of Kuz's 6 blocks of the season came from these last 4 games. I'm loving his focus on rebounding and defense lately. It's what has been lacking in his game but always knew he had it in him if he focused on those aspects of the game.

Once he puts it all together, it's game over.

Would rather start Randle with Brook so Kuz can help out Nance on the second unit. I want to see Randle and Nance playing together as little as possible.
