Svi tearing it up in the GLeague right now. 37 points with a quarter to go.
shame Luke's forgotten that he existed outside of garbage time, after some good games.

But hope Svi continues doing great!!

One thing about Luke, he's a bit slow to make lineup changes.

Kuzma started the year playing backup center and on the bench. Ingram gets suspended and Kuzma's been in the starting lineup ever since.

Randle last yr was on the bench until the team revolted and had a team meeting. From that point on, Randle was in the starting lineup.

Zubac this year.

Its called moving without the ball. I saw svi at least 4 times moving without the ball and getting dunks/layups.

When was the last time u saw Brandon Ingram move without the ball like that?

Adding strength is going to be so key for him in becoming a functional NBA defender. Because if he's a functional NBA defender, I think he has a clear path towards being a good NBA 6th man/solid 5th starter in the league.

Which is to get to the point that the Lakers could part with Josh if Svi continues to progress this season.

In any other system with any other coach, Lebron and Svi would have been a thing since day 1.

He's going to be a sniper. Another great job by the Lakers scouting department.

SVI is a very smooth player, can handle, can cut, can defend a little bit, much more than a shooter, but the thing is that his shots are not falling, hopefully that game gave him confidence.
When his shots start to fall, he will be a solid player

I hope some are happy that he played. He did nothing and had no impact on the game, though. He just isn’t ready.

No, he isn’t ready because he has no impact on the game. He isn’t a decent NBA player at this time.

It's not a surprise that Svi didn't score. He had his big game the day before, and I expected him not to have the same effectiveness on back to back days. Additionally, he's probably the focus of the offense on the Defenders, but on the Lakers, he's only in front of guys like Tyson Chandler as a shooting option. That's how the players divide up the shots. I did see him drain a distant 3 point shot on a play where Chandler was called for moving screen. He was floating and fading to his left on that shot, the type of shot I haven't noticed him make with any consistency.

When they use him in games where his legs are fresher I believe he's going to show us a lot more than we've seen. That shooter from the last G League game would be very helpful when Ingram or Kuzma need a rest, or Lonzo needs help handling the ball.

Depending on the matchups and game flow, I believe the hard work that led to his recent success is going to be apparent soon and we'll all be glad to see it.

Svi has a lot to learn and grow into, but, imo, he's capable of showing the things we saw in Summer League were real.

The team ignored Svi. The guards would consistently pass to Kuz and KCP over Svi for open shots when both were available.

Sucks for Svi, but the others were making shots so it wasn't the wrong decision. I just wish he got a heat check that counted.
