5/6/6 with a steal and a block. Only one turnover.

 

Looking great so far. Not even bothered by some of those misses.

Lonzo should have finished that. But he's playing great.

I'll say this. Ball has had about 8-10 passes that were gimmes for his recipients

He's impressing me.

Also he's getting into to the lane very nicely and relatively easily which is a solid sign

Right now I'd like to see him strike a better balance between when to kick and when to score

He's had a few layups he's passed over for a pass instead

I'd like to see him learn when and where to pass and score

But I like his movement. He could easily be in double digit assists right now

I'm fascinated what he's going to do with Lopez, Randle, Ingram, clarkson, nance

Also hart has won me over because he's athletic, big, and plays smart

Comes off like the senior he is

I wasn't expecting much from the team after watching Game 1 and then finding out Ingram wouldn't be playing the rest of SL but they've came to play on both ends.

Watching Lonzo play, it just makes you wonder how many assists he could average given the correct players surrounding him.  GO GET SOME SHOOTERS MAGIC!

Agree 100%.  That's probably been his only flaw thus far on the offensive end.  It's understandable though.  That balance between shooting and playmaking is often the most difficult concept to grasp when making the transition into the NBA.  It'll take time but hopefully he learns to not shy away from the easy mid-range pop or finish at the rim when handed to him by the defense.

I dont care about shooting percentages but I want to see him attack out of PnR some and get to the rim.  Don't be too selfless.

Kuzma is extremely impressive.

He's a Swiss knife.

Nance better watch out because Kuzma coulde easily replace him in the rotation.  Dude doesn't hesitate to take the jumper.

lol I'm honestly thinking someone needs to be traded for kuzma to get time

He'll have growing pains but he can clearly shoot and move really well

If he works on his defense, Larry and Julius could be on another team next year. The kid looks great.

Still going to hear people call Lonzo a bust because he missed shots.

This is exactly what I was expecting from Lonzo, make everybody better, change the pace of the game, get everybody involved.
