    Lonnie has been more assertive this year. I think he feels the heat from the young guys. DJ is turning the ball over less and hitting jump shots. Keldon has turned a corner and is bullying players on both ends. Vassell nipping at the heels for minutes.

    Squad looked good last night. @the kid is right. Lonnie is way more aggressive the past few games. Keldon was getting to the hoop at will. If bargain-bin Luka could just amount to something, this team could be scary.

    Lonnie is being more aggressive and I like his game.
    If I have a small concern it is that Murray might be playing himself into the 2nd unit.

    He has had games where he looks like a legitimate NBA starter, but he's very inconsistent. He's had some awful shooting games, even if I love his rebounding and defensive tenacity at times.

    If Derrick White continues to improve and heal and reclaims his starting PG spot...and Walker keeps playing well...there just isn't anywhere for Murray to play on the starting unit.

    I don't like the idea of moving Murray to SG and Walker to SF. That's too small -- even for small ball rotations. But correct me if I'm wrong.

    Edit - What I mean is, White/Walker/DeRozan would arguably be the starting rotation

    Remember, DeRozan will still be a PF when he returns. That lineup works against 90% of the rosters out there (Lakers being an exception with their size).

    White's constant injuries seem to point to him being a bench guy just to manage his minutes. Plus, he has a tendency to fade into the background on offense at times. Running with the second unit places him as the go-to scorer (Mills/White/Vassell/Rudy/Poetl).

    The depth suddenly looks crazy good. We need to turn Lyles (through trade) into into a more serviceable big than Eubanks.

    Murray has been playing really well lately. His play in the 4th qtr last night won us the game and he's cut down the senseless turnovers a lot. A rotation of murray/white/Walker/derozan/Aldridge can work...that's basically what they ran with in the bubble.

    My nitpick is with Lonnie. Dude has all the skills to be dominant on offense but he isn't consistent when attacking the basket. I hate when he gets in the paint for a dunk/layup or a foul and passes out of it:francis:

    Gotta give a shoutout to Poetl today. Dude had 6 offensive boards today, and each one seemed to lead to a bucket when the Spurs were holding off Portland's attempts to get back in the game in the 2nd half.

    7:37 mark was one of my favorite sequences of the game.

    Ugly game. Spurs better come out angry against Dallas tomorrow. Luka lit them up all last year. Should be a W.
