L.A. Times: For the Lakers, a void has to be filled because of injuries.
And that means even a rookie such as Sun Yue has to be prepared when the call goes out.
Sun got the call from Lakers Coach Phil Jackson on Wednesday night, but it was not a shining moment for the 6-foot-9 guard from China.
It was not so much that he didn’t score. It was more about how uneasy he looked on the court against the Golden State Warriors.
“For me, every game on the court I feel more better, more comfortable,” Sun said. “I might not be getting used to the whole system 100%, but I think I’m at about 60% and it’s getting better. Everybody tells me to don’t be in a hurry because the triangle is difficult.”
It was the fourth game Sun has played in this season. He played three minutes 15 seconds.
Sun looked tentative bringing the basketball up court and looked unsure of himself trying to facilitate the offense.
