Well done Morris. With the increased playing time he is getting he is slowly showing improvement. Definitely still alot to work on but their possibly is some potential with him. The one thing I like about him is his size and speed and ability to stay in front of his man on Defence, compared to our other PGs. Good game and I hope he continues to improve. We need some young legs at the PG spot.

Of all his stats the one I like the most is 1 turnover in 25 minutes. Played under control, within the flow of the game. He's not 6th man of the year or anything, but he showed definite improvement. I hope he continues to progress and maybe earn some more minutes down the road. He's young, he was a low draft pick, he has a long way to go still. At least he's on the way up, something that can't be said about Blake. As of now Steve Blake is better though obviously. It's his job to lose.

My little brother could play point guard better than Steve Blake and he's only a freshman in high school. Why Morris doesn't get backup minutes, I don't know.

Bet he could. He wouldn't miss that much threes. He would find the open man. He would drive in and either take a floater, or pass it to the open man. Steve Blake plays like a little girl, can't penetrate to save his life.

Mike Brown was coach. Plus if we let Steve Blake run the 2nd unit, we wouldn't score at all.

[expletive] I thought I was the only one. On a serious note forum posters that do not follow college ball kill me. All Morris did tonight is what he did every night in college but in college his numbers were better 15ppg 6assists and 4 rebounds.I have always said he has "Potential" and will make a very good NBA PG he just needs the time to develop. There is going to be a lot of crow eating in the next year or so. Some of the players on our team really have to learn to keep their hands up His 4th q pass to J chill almost blasted him in the face he caught the ball out of instinct more than knowing the pass was coming which is why he hesitated on the shot. Brain was still catching up to the action lmao. Am I saying he is ready to be Nash primary back up? NO he still has a lot of learning to do but trust me when I say Steve Blake is not happy tonight. Glad Kobe gave the kid high praise also seeing as so many thing he is "Garbage" its sad how LA fans treat young players. Would Rondo have gotten the same treatment? He over dribbled, could not shoot hell he couldnt hit a free throw when he first got in the league.... Patience is a virtue.

So you are saying if he gets better it does not make the team better? Individual improvement actually helps the team right? Just sayin.

if he plays like this tonight why should me or anyone complain? Hes a backup player. Play like this every night and he'll get the deserved props. Respect and credit is not just blindly given, its earned. If he helps the team get better theres no grounds for anyone to complain thats the bottom line.

It's always going to be 1 game at a time with Morris until he proves his consistency.

I'm a supporter of Morris, but some of these other Morris supporters just make me cringe sometimes. You got CJ up there for instance trying to cash in on Morris' good performance tonight. CJ, you might want to wait until Morris has three good games for every one bad game if you want to even think about saying "I told you so".

Like your blind props for Goudelock even when he would shoot horrible on both ends of the floor
