He was solid defensively today. A few really good "stay with 'em" plays.

Yeah, he got hit hard a couple times with non-calls. Another was that time he ended up under AD.

Yeah, I thought Butler got away with another foul there, Butler just got a foul call on the previous play with his charge on Caruso when he pushed off. I think they were reluctant to call back to back fouls on Butler there. Shame if so.

Does anyone else feel like his passing has improved? He makes some nice skip passes a couple times a game now.

He need more opportunities to run the offense. He has some vision but misread players. He need more time to anticipate others tendencies.

He still needs some work on his handle, midrange game, and PnR passing so I'm comfortable with him being the secondary ballhandler for now.

Just thought I've seen some improved passing from him

His month to month improvement from when he joined the big club team until now is just amazing. I just trust a guy like him out there. After he wins a ring, I think he will play even more confidently next year.

Imagine if Lonzo never got hurt in Summer League. This dude would be playing in Europe somewhere. Philly & OKC actually had him in house and let him walk.

Surprised he wasn't in on the last defensive possession. I thought they would come out with all perimeter defenders and AD to keep Butler from beating them on a drive, and they went with Kief! Then got beat on the drive.

I thought for sure they'd have Caruso out there to either spot up for a three or get a cut to the basket, and possibly an offensive rebound IDK.

Was odd to not see him out there. Seems coach has more trust in Markieff than Caruso. Well founded? I don't know.

I thought the story of this game early was Nunn. The Lakers had no answer for him until Caruso was guarding him in the second half. Caruso fights over screens well and can also switch onto bigger defenders better than Rondo can. Rondo is my dude, but Caruso just has better defensive abilities right now. I thought Rondo is better suited at guarding Robinson, who just runs around and tried to fall down on jump shots to get foul calls.

Something has been off with him in these Finals.

Caruso in this series is a -2 overall and he has a real bad 1.28 AST/TO ratio with some questionable plays, unforced t/o, etc.

Herro also seems to have no issues scoring against him.

Only thing we can count on Caruso is he makes at least one 3-pointer a game.

We need him to be EVERYWHERE on the court on Sunday. Running around like an animal on both offence an defence. His energy is contagious.

Caruso needs to show up, his impact hasn’t been felt at all this series

Stop whining to the officials and play on! Step up his defense against Herro as well.

there was another guard who subbed in for a hall of fame Center in the finals and brought us a championship. He ended up having a pretty good career as a Laker. Lets hope history repeats itself again.

Put "Champion" next to his name, and watch all the haters eat it.

Who would have thought with all the young talent we've brought in over the past six years, the guy starting in the clinching game of the NBA Finals would be Alex Caruso?

He plays with great effort. Some of the others may have been more talented, but he is unrelenting in his effort and effort wins.
