Doc bringing him in for "defense" which leads ro him being on the floor for 2 minures in the 4th and turning the ball over.
Ugly, ugly, game. Think CP3 outsmarted himself again thinking they were gonna foul. Should have let JJ or Wes get a look.
Literally every metric says Wes and Lance are better with the core 4 than Luc. He does nothing well. Before this game I was talking with a buddy of mine, saying that basically Luc being in the starting lineup and us picking it up were not connected and I was afraid that Doc would connect the two. It's really a headscratcher to watch him out with the starters while Lance can't even get off the bench for the entire first half
By the way Doc did play lance at the four a bit in the second half. Awkward, but it worked for a bit. However, he also brought in Luc late for JJ Redick which was ridiculous.
-While Luc playing with the starters and us winning is purely a coincidence, what isn't a coincidence is how the 2nd unit looks completely awful with PP in there. 2nd Unit looked much better on defense when it was lance in there with the 2nd unit instead of PP. We literally give up so much and gain NOTHING with him on the floor. He's so bad man.
- Wes Johnson again proved his worth. He played 15 Minutes tonight. That is entirely too low. Meanwhile Luc played 21. THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM. Luc's defense isn't even better than Wes's so there's no justification behind this. Simply minblowing.
- Jamal Crawford's defense down the stretch hurt us so bad. They were picking on him. He shouldn't have been in there. A lineup of CP / JJ / Wes / Josh / DJ would have sufficed for me.
The Luc experiment has to stop. It isn't going to work. He isn't good at anything. The starting 3 should be wes with Lance playing behind him,
