In the 1st half, Ellington's 3-4 from behind the arc and Bradley's 4 1st half treys were tremendous boosts that kept us in the game early.
Their efforts allowed the Lakers to get build confidence and get into a rhythm.

Yeah. Imagine that say AD/Bron/Westbrook at some point in begin to lock in defensively. You're seeing some signs of life of our D now. Even with Westbrook, but especially AD. Now add a motivated playoff level defense Lebron. Now, when you see teams pack the paint on AD/Bron/Westbrook. You have a guy like Ellington on the corner. A guy like Melo, on the wing. Damn - that's gonna make teams scramble. But they have to also play D. I mean AD/Melo/Bron/Ellington/Westbrook will be tough to defend because there's good spacing, but it has to be both ways. I look forward to this hopefully happening at some point.
That's it, if we play defense like we are capable of doing, we will be great, if we don't play dogged defense, we lose.

I'd add Bradley, Baze and possibly Reaves to that list.

Kudos to Ellington for stepping up again with 15 points on 5-8Fg.
He shot a sniper-like 71% from deep (5-7).
His overall defense was solid also. (+12).

In all honestly to say anyone is for sure not going to be a part of the rotation is likely just hating on the player.. Outside of Baze and DJ who are nothing more then solid injury protection since we have players that do what they do much better when healthy.

I could see Ellington not playing in some games when fully healthy depending on matchups and how everyone is playing but he'll obviously be a regular contributor as long as he stays healthy since he is clearly one of the best 3pt shooters we have.

Ellington was a great pick-up and a true professional.
He usually handles his business when called upon.

Yes, he impressed me with his defensive commitment. Neither him nor Monk were liabilities tonight.

And for the shooting...wow, that's what we need from him

W. Ellington has been up and down but tonight he played a big role in the win vs the Pacers.
He scored 14 points on 5-7Fg. including 4-6 from deep.
His overall defense was solid also. (+20).
