    If he grabs 10 boards and has 11 assists and a couple steals and we win I wouldn't have a problem with it.

    I will take the W, sure but at the same time i will always find it unacceptable for a PG to score 0-4 points. Especially for a guy so quick and so athletic as Lonzo.

    What about a wing? To me that's more unacceptable because a pass first PG like Lonzo simply isn't a great scorer. Last game Ingram went 1 for 8 shooting. And yet I still thought he had a decent game because he ended up with 11 assists and played really good D. And a wing's job much of the time IS to score. More so than a pass first PG. BI is averaging 16 points a game. So I'm just saying, the amount of points Lonzo scores isn't the main crux to me about whether his play is good or acceptable enough. For so long people have been fixating on Lonzo's scoring. He brings a lot more to the table than that.

    ^ never said he doesn't. His court vision and D are fantastic for such a young kid. The fact he doesn't score 15-20 a game is all mental though. The moment he ups his FT% his game will open up a lot. He can go to the hoop at will, he'll get 6-10 FT's a game at some point.

    Ken Berger of Bleacher Report:

    No BI, Kuz or Ball for Beal? But Ball was made available earlier for another player: AD maybe (till Nawlins made it clear they're not going to trade him this year)?

    Please, if New Orleans calls and says we'll give you Davis for BI, Ball, and picks? Brow is on the next flight. LBJ would be furious if something like that didn't go down.

    Hope he isn't out for too long. It was the big turning point of the game when he got hurt.

    Teams with no PG’s have beat us. It’s inconvient but no excuse.

    Xray's just show he didn't break his ankle. The MRI's probably not going to be kind. Ask LeBron's groan about that.

    We'll just have to wait and see. No use speculating yet.

    Really sucks that it seems like our young players get hurt right when they start to really hit their stride.

    Will be day to day for one month+ knowing the medical staff .. it's almost a guarantee

    Worse , we won't have a clear timetable/communication from the Lakers.

    The "positive" I think is both Rondo and Lebron are going to come back sooner with Zo out
