    That unit of Rondo, Lonzo, BI, Kuz, and McGee was really good. They gave the GS starters a run for their money in the third, lots of energy on both ends of the court.

    Lebron in any unit is a positive. He’s just that guy, and it’s so damn nice to finally have that again. A superstar to fall back on. His passing is so good, finally get to witness it first hand, our players have to be ready all 48. And you know he’s loving the pace.

    BI started slow, but he finally found his spots. Same with Kuz.

    KCP put up numbers, but he hasn’t learned to stay in his lane, and his defense is atrocious. Beas isn’t all that great, but not expecting much from him.

    Our bench is better than theirs, and deep down they know it.

    Yeah,that bench is bad,even with an old gimpy AI. And with either Rondo or Ball running our 2nd unit and when we add that 2nd star,hmm.... We could run with anyone.Exciting times!

    It was definitely impressive seeing our de facto second unit taking it to theirs.

    We've got guys like Hart, Rondo or Lonzo, and Kuzma coming off the bench? Those guys start on a LOT of teams around the NBA. We've got tremendous depth and our pace isn't going to slow down from unit to unit. We're going to run some teams completely out of the gym.

    Who cares if it's pre-season. Any win against the champs is cause for optimism.

    Exactly why the league is better when we are good.
