Alright, I understand Phil loves Luke. I understand he knows the offense and that he's a great teammate. But it is not necessary to play him this much.

Great feed from Luke that time. Wish Drew had hit that.

sadly...for this road trip...the bench has outplayed the starting 5...and that on the road...surprisingly.

I know they play against the second units...but they are getting THEIR job done...the starting 5 doesn't get theirs done.

Drew, for the love of... EVERYTHING... dunk the ball, intimidate these guys a little.

I think it's all mental with him. He's concerned not to get injured again. I can understand this, but it pains me to see him playing ballet out there.

Shannon's jumper is obviously MUCH better than it was last year, but his ability to get to the rim in traffic is pretty awesome now, too.

I don't understand how can some people here argue that Drew is not a 20/10 guy if given minutes and touches. He has 12/5 in 13 minutes without any plays ran for him or without being the focal point and being 4 games back from a 5 month hiatus.

Is Luke seriously getting time over Lamar? I think that's who he's in for.

This is garbage. So pissed at Phil.

He is truly an amazing finisher. Too bad the guys who rely on speed and athleticism usually decline faster, but man.... he can be awesome sometimes.

No, he does the same and he's cheaper

This is the 2nd stint this game in which the bench has come in and restored order.

Bynum's presence alone stopped that horrible lay-up/dunk drill Toronto had going on earlier.

I'd seriously consider playing Artest and Matt together. Put their players on lockdown and crush them. Then play Luke and the rookies in garbage time. Why is this so hard?

Bynum is way too big. :man10:

BTW, 9/7 from Barnes with good D....

and this is an undrafted player.
