Plus 3 BIG steals!


Also stepping up with 43 minutes. That’s huge given Hart/Ingram being out.

He didn’t have control. Refs ruled that the tapping at the ball until he secured it wasn’t dribbling, but part of him stealing it, so he still had a legal dribble. It’s like when a guy receives a pass and drops the ball, he still has a legal dribble.

It’s a reward for all the screw jobs the refs have done to the Lakers

So what kind of contract do we think KCP is going to get? Because he's been playing great 2 way basketball since he got out of jail and he only just turned 25.

People keep talking about potentially re-signing IT, but if there's money left over I'd much rather keep KCP on some kind of reasonable deal than an aging IT.

Weak minded.

Lets emotions rule him.

Anti-clutch.

Upgrade to Paul George would be like upgrading a 2001 Honda Civic to a Ferrari.

KCP was up and down all night. Besides his usual snafus KCP had 16 points and 9 points in a losing effort without two of our best players.
He missed a crucial layup under pressure late that really hurt. He also took a few questionable shots but so did some of the other guys. However he didn't lose the game by himself.

KCP is fine. He's not Paul George -- no (bleep). He's a solid young player who's going to be best in a role-player type role. He's done a good job of accepting that this season for the most part and been a very valuable addition to the team outside of his prison term.

Was disappointed he didn't make the layup when he tried to force it. His mid-range heave where he assume a foul call was coming was dangerous, and I'm really not a huge fan of assuming calls. The main issue was him compounding the issue by fouling because of frustration after he didn't get the call. 2 mistakes in a few seconds, one gifting free throws to the other team. The latter mistake was the really bad one.

He's been playing well but he's not an iso player. If you want to get KCP a shot late in the game he needs to be coming off a screen where he can catch and shoot or out of a scramble.

Let’s be real, he’s been playing good basketball for 2 months now, he got screwed by the refs and took dumb shots, let’s not forget the quite few of games he has won us, at least he wasn’t a disaster like Thomas.

He's been up and down all season. This should not have come as a surprise to anyone. It's still disappointing, obviously...

DB's observation of KCP

Quote:
Dancing Barry wrote:

His three point shooting lately has been pretty insane. January he shot .456 from three. February was .451. So far in March it’s at .556. He went 5-10 from three tonight.

He seems to miss more on those threes where he curls at the top of the arc. That was a staple early in the season. Now, it’s a lot more catch and shoot opportunities where he’s squared up for a good, on-balance look.

The Stats: He scored 17 points on 5-11 shooting (5-10 from three, 2-2 from the line) to go with 9 boards, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 turnover and 2 fouls in 39 minutes.

Maybe its time to think about re-signing this guy?

Pretty much. Despite KCP's inability to score off the dribble I like what he brings on both ends of the floor. However, if we are able to sign PG13 then I see no need to bring him back.
