^ Right???

C'mon man!! There's no real excuse to play Blake at the 2 this season ever and he still figured out a way to do it. If you're going to put Morris in the game, you're going to suck anyway. He's the ultimate ball stopper and turnover machine.

Mitch did an amazing job everywhere except for picking up that kid's contract.

Blake played a good game by his standards. He's not Nash, but he played well within himself.

Agreed. Still can't quite get why is Brown playing him at the 2.

gotta give blake credit. He played his heart out today. He cares. N im sure the fan he was jawing at said something personal like his family or something. Athletes dont react unless unnecessary personal attack was made. I gained respect for blake stepping up in the absence of nash. Although lacking in areas, boy showed heart.

Blake played really hard. Props to him tonight.

But some of those turnovers from the top of the key trying to get it to the wing make me cringe ...

PG's shouldn't mess up easy passes that bad.

We still need a better backup.

I liked Blake's effort tonight. He was victim of a few bad calls. Telegraphed a couple passes. It seemed like he really got up for this game because he started. Hopefully he keeps up this intensity every game.

Another solid game by Blake ... he played solid D on CP3 ... Say what you want about him but he's giving his all and has the right attitude

Play the video FULL SCREEN to see what's going on.

He first gets into it with the fan at the 40 second mark.

He really cusses him out at the 29 second mark after he throws a bad pass and turns the ball over and commiting a foul afterwards.

Judging by the body language, it's the fan who is guilty, not Steve.

+1. Blake is playing hard but he just isn't good enough. If Nash were to really get hurt and be out for an extended time we'd be toast. Blake starting isn't going to win you many, if any, games.

We desperately need a backup PG to spell minutes for Nash, and be a legitimate threat if Nash goes down.

Morris isn't going to cut it at all. Why didn't he play Duhon?

One thing's for sure, his defense was much better than Nash's D would have been. He didn't stop CP3, but he did present a painful speedbump of sorts.

Yeah that's what I think. I'm guessing this "fan" was talking some trash to Blake telling him he sucked. I'd be pist too. That guy is an idiot. Blake played a good game regardless of his turnovers. He's Just a rich guy who doesn't know two things about basketball, just how to pay for a game and how to sit courtside.

Strangely, more probing and penetration from Blake tonight than from Nash in the first couple of games. I was impressed with his effort and overall perfromance tonight. He played hard and tried ro make things happen. Props to him.

He's been hitting the gym for late night workouts according to his twitter. Definitely a plus against the clips!

The dude has been really good compared to last season. He's still not great, but he's been a solid backup PG for this team so far this season. He's still not taking enough of his open shots, but he's definitely looked much better this season.

I'm not happy with him starting though. I'd almost rather have him start and then have Meeks play the backup PG. Or DJO. Morris is completely awful and Duhon apparently isn't any better in Brown's mind.

I have to admit that Blake's play is closer to what we all thought we were getting than what we've gotten the last two years..... His shot seems a little better and he's playing the best defense at the point guard position I've seen in a Laker Uni in a long while....

Morris having any stats whatsoever this year or than DNP is a testament as to why our Coach needs to be fired....

I agree. Blake is playing much better now, and is fine in a backup role. Morris, however, should not play at all. His minutes should be given to Meeks. Otherwise we end up with Morris playing the 1 and Blake playing the 2.

No. Just no.

Morris is just awful. There's nothing he's doing on the floor that Meeks can't do.

Morris cannot defend effectively. He cannot distribute effectively. He cannot score effectively. He's not a leader. He's not shooter. He doesn't draw fouls. What exactly does this kid do to deserve time?

Or I suppose more importantly what does Duhon/Meeks do that deserves for them to be on the bench?

Morris is horrendous. There's really nothing that he offers as a positive right now. I think his decision-making is a bit better than it was last year, but I wouldn't grade him as better than average at anything. And his impact on the court sure seems to be all in the negative.
