I don't know, we can't underestimate the impact of Bradley's defensive ability. If I'm honest regardless of KCP shooting level recently I would rather have Bradley in the starting lineup, I think everyone gets better defensively when he is playing.

KCP rising from the dead. Nothing but an absolute miracle and I'm happy to be witness.

43% from 3

Hopefully we get more folks giving him props instead of the "trade him while he's hot" talk.

Give the man his props. The last five games, he has been that third best player we need every night, behind the two all-stars.

When Bradley gets back, KCP will still get his minutes , playing backup SG and maybe some SF too.

10-15 points a night - give us that KCP and you are earning your $8 million a year.

This version of KCP is indeed earning that $$$.

Let’s hope he only keeps improving.

The KCP renaissance has been so much fun to watch.

December 15 is right around the corner. Hopefully he can keep it up.

Yeah, once Bradley comes back you have to give him a lot of those Daniels and Caruso minutes for as long as he keeps this up. I was actually hoping for him to take more shots at certain points

Props given but does he regress once AB is back in the starting 5? Or do we just keep KCP starting?

IMO Bradley has to start and then if KCP can keep this up as part of a bench, we're in very good shape bench wise. (add Iggy to that group and damn I like it)

Props to KCP. The shooting is nice. But the fact that he has been putting in the work defensively is awesome. He's playing with heart.

Problem is he does almost all of his scoring when he shares the floor with Lebron. If he's coming off the bench when Lebron sits down, I don't know if we can count on 10-15 a night.

If KCP is playing this from now on, I would still start him, and when LeBron sits, he sits, and then Bradley comes in when AD and Dwight is in because he's been showing synergy with these big guys.

Wow. He (and Rondo) change the dynamic of our team. If KCP continues this type of play, he can be added to our death lineup against the Clips. Our entire lineup would be players who at fairly good at both ends.

I thought his Laker career died on the night Kawhi dropped 349 points on him.

Props to him for keeping up the fight and kudos to his teammates for continuing to believe in him.
