His defense is better than Vujacic's. Way better. His defense on Parker was better than Duhon's too, and Duhon isn't a bad defender. He has good speed, length, and strength for the PG position on that end of the floor in addition to having a decent understanding of where the help is coming from.

The problem is that West can do that, while being able to run the offense and shoot the ball too.

His defense was decent...nothing special...certainly not enough to offset his pathetic display on offense. I think that one good game got to his head.

His D on Parker was VERY solid (only mistake was him going once under a screen ) ... I'm not sure which game some fans are watching

started out great IMO then after the 1st quarter he was terrible. I think we just got out coached. he made adjustments after that quarter and we held onto that lead for as long as we could. Dwight has got to stop turning it over so much. and idk why Kobe didn't do much towards the end. he normally attacks

Morris looked decent for his first NBA start. He played great defense on one of the best point guards in the world in Tony Parker.

Ok lets say decent or average d...but his offense is just turrible...he cant creat for others to save his life....he has no pg skills and he cant shoot...yea he can make corner 3 but he can also airball 3pt...basicly this guy shouldnt be on our roster...he should play gary payton D to get some min...couse his O that bad...

His shot wasn't falling, and other than some D and one really nice pass to Kobe in the second quarter, it wasn't really anything to write home about. Clearly, Bickerstaff did not trust him enough out there in the fourth quarter when Kobe took over at point. I suppose it could have been worse.

Duhon should be getting the bulk of the minutes right now.

his d was solid but he was trying to make "the play" or "the shot" and it ended bad. if he just hits the open 3 and plays D he's done his job for now. Kobe is playing both guards and still shooting that efficiently. it's unreal. duhon should get most mins but they did adjust to both of them and made them useless

35-40 mins till Blake returns. Duhon should be #3, I have a feeling he will be (at least that) with Pringles

Morris was out of control on offense tonight.

Duhon on the other hand looked calmer and better for the last 2 games.

i thought he bothered parker a bit on d, but as others said, he was a nightmare offensively. the spurs alternated between completely ignoring him and baiting him into low percentage plays. not a game tape he'll want to save.

Morris is a scrub. Luckily we'll have Nash and Blake returning soon. (I'm actually hoping Blake comes back soon :freak2: ).

Unless he starts D'ing up like prime Kirk Hinrich, I see absolutely no reason for him to play, let alone start. Right now Duhon should be getting at least 36 minutes a game. Unfortunately with Blake hurt right now we have no choice but to play him.

I agree that his O is terrible. Duhon should be playing more than him.

If Darius Morris can keep continuing to attack the basket, not just penetrate halfway and then stops just to dribble back outside, he could be much much more efficient.

How about we try starting Duhon and try DJO off the bench against the Suns. DJO has GOT to be a more reliable shooter than Morris...who can't make more than 20% of his shots :disagree:
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.

I thought Morris played well against SAS. TO me it was his best outing. He surpised me with his D on Parker. I know some will easily dismiss that but I won't he was with TP all game. He made some bonehead plays on offense but even then he seemed to play more freely. 1 game does not make you a stud or a dud but this was a good game in my opinion
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.
