Well, he is trying more, but failing against Durant and Westbrook. But in terms of effort when on the ball, sure. Like he did against CP3 late in the game. He tried, but was not effective.
But that is not my point -- your are right about certain on the ball D. But it is not just his off the ball, it is his transition D after he misses a chucked 3 too.
Anyway. It is a terrible night to be a Laker fan. Blow out. at home. on national TV. and hill out for season.
So his few lazy times that I saw tonight set me off.
I am only watching now because I hope Westbrook sprains and ankle. Sorry. Sad to say, but true.
