AC and KCP should grab some of Green's minutes.

Big game by Caruso.

Thing with Alex is making shots and continuing to be looking for his shot, because the defense gives it to him. He was 4-7 today. 10 points. If he can get some buckets when out there, that is huge. He becomes impact 2-way then.

Tonight was that 2-way night. What a great re-signing this was. Dwight and Alex have been our most consistent and valuable bench players this season, by far.

Cool

he said something like this before and no change
If I had to bet Vogel will give Rondo like 23 minutes to Caruso's 12 next Laker game

Yeah, I loved seeing Dwight and Caruso playing with the starters as well in the second half tonight. It's going to get tough to play McGee much at all if Dwight keeps this up and the Lakers play AD at center more in the Playoffs. Also, watching Dwight and AD playing the perimeter defensively so well for big men is always awesome to see. Jokic just completely wanted to gtfo of that arena and go home by the time it was over

Come on man stuff like this is ridiculous...Of course it's Caruso all day everyday. The bigger question is...

Caruso with the headband or Thanos with the infinity gauntlet?

IDK man. Caruso might have 7 rings when it’s all said and done.

All kidding aside, there’s a sense of calm I get when Caruso is in the game. I feel he’s gonna make the right plays most of the time. So amazing watching an undrafted, former 2-way contract play along side giants like Lebron and AD.

I like how he plays the tough D but doesn’t foul. Really a little more shooting and he totally replaces the Green role.

Wow. And here I am thinking he fills a little of that Josh Hart void.

I'm very impressed by KCP and Caruso these guys are playing HARD. I think this is actually our strongest line up


PG.Caruso
SG.KCP
SF.LeBron
PF.Davis
C.Howard


They give us a lot of athleticism we miss. I love green but KCP is outplaying him. Everyshot is going in for him.

There's no need for bad juju, but...dude has been durable. He never missed a game in four years of college.

AC is such a smart intangibles player. He makes so many plays that don't show in the stat box. His impact reminds me of Dellavedova on that championship cavs team.

Very high IQ, and he always goes hard.

Edit: one major difference from Dellavedova is that Caruso does not rely on dirty tactics to impact the game whereas dirty tactics seemed to be Dellavedova's primary focus due to his inability to impact the game in other ways.
