Knocks Randall Robinson.
Obviously, Morris's is a spark plug is a great, really good score.
Could do, almost do.
That thing's going through different levels.
I really like his game.
That's just about the consistency with with with, almost honestly, honestly, with Morris and knocks, I'm gonna have to see how they play, Um, tonight.
And who has the hot hand? I mean, I'm not.
With Knox coming off the bench, I think he's I think he's played pretty good for the minutes that has been given.
Knocking down shots like like I'm going to the basket, being very aggressive, and that's what I like to see him.
You said he added some some muscle Madison, so so he could be able to come initiate contact and get to the basket and get on the line.
Because, you know, standing on the three point line the whole time, you kind of get lost.
So aggressive, be active, high energy every single night.
That's very that's very key for Knox, Man.
A lot of people question his motor.
That's probably one of the worst things you could question for any athlete, any player.
So look for him to really be active today.
Guys again going up against guys like healed about Donna ***** Uh and, uh, Harrison Barnes as well, So hopefully they could over he could come out and really play well defensively as well as what I'm looking forward for him is to definitely have to be able to lock up.
Hopefully, Fizdale plays truant tonight.
We need we need some more scoring off the bench.
The S j still out.
But look, it's still out without with the family reasons for both of those guys.
Like I said, Like I said before prayers up to both of those guys and their families.
But in the meantime, you know, play You have to play guys like dots and play God, like try to get those guys going through a really good game against the nets.
And then, just like we haven't seen him be barely seen him.
So I don't really know what what Fizdale is doing.
I'll set sometimes, like, looks so basic.
We have that we have.
We have that one.
We have that once we have that one set that one action for me and Ellington at the three point line, and he gets the bullet off the highest commander.
He's really he's really the next only only shooter.
So I like to see fit to kind of mix it up a little bit.
Like I said, get first off, get Randall in the paint, get him in, get him in that little block.
Get him in that That left, left or right block.
Have him work from there.
He could still pass the ball to facilitate.
From from there, it's not a problem.
Honestly, it was over open.
It would create better spacing about spacing out times is really stagnant.
We really have one possession, really have one shot possessions, which is not, which is something that we can't afford.
And like I said, if you and if you and if you have those one shot possessions, if he's in the paint Yeah, Lou was good.
Breath was Goody.
Uh, if he's in the paint, let's bath.
What's up? Well, consider spoken to the screen.
Thank you so much for joining.
If he's in the paint and then we do have those one shot possessions from some of those guys that perimeter.
He could be able to get the offensive rebound, creates second chance points, either kick it back out or create a shot for himself off the off the board.
And that, you know, because he's having seven point games, 11 point games and in paradise because of the spacing is because where he's out on the court, he's not able to get the board.
He needs to be, needs to be much more active, and I'm looking for is there to put him in.
Some put him in some spots on the court so he could be able to succeed because he's a really good player.
I like his game.
I don't like him handling the bowl at the key driving and kicking.
I mean, at this 0.
1, I don't know.
I'm not a fan of the five out for the next plane to five out because when we don't have the shooters And secondly, Randall's Randall's handle was not a sharp to necessarily know.
It necessarily do that, and defense is they're gonna collapse the paint, you know, he wants to go to his left, so they're gonna close in left, and then he you know he's He's scrambling the boat.
He That's how he gets most of his turnovers.
So if you if you put him off, you put him on the block Rivers and he could pick it.
He could be able to get going a lot quicker.
Get to the free throw line, get some shots.
You should be able to put up 20 points on everybody. Easily.
I mean, he was putting up 21 9 last year on the pelicans.
Are you really impressed me, brother? You're next.
Yeah. Yeah, we do.
We have some five.
Have some fight.
You have some fight.
I mean, we just have to be able to close.
Just have better close out games.
That's really what it is.
Obviously against against your CI's straw place.
Place, place solid.
Really? The Celtics in that game.
Obviously you guys, you guys up really small, had a small lineup, then you then have cancer.
You guys had didn't have Robbie Williams.
They did a great job about being in the middle because a little to blame these most of them late, in my opinion, because, like I said, the off the system is just not.
It is basic to me.
It is really basic.
And I feel like you could be conducive.
We could do it, could do some different things.
Even even even put Morris on the low block as well.
Do some do some cuts cut into the basket.
R J R J plays really well off the ball.
He could cut to the basket, make some plays for himself if the shots not going in like I'm Arjun is playing excellent man right now.
Is there some really good rookies right now in the N B A.
You look at you.
Look at two of these guys on the heat with with none and Herro piece that Washington over there.
And Charlotte John Moran is playing well, Okay, I'm pretty sure I'm missing a couple of gun.
Priest is a ton of god under guys, right? Not really playing well, but I think r j right now is definitely the leader for for rookie of the year, averaging 20 against same same thing for him. I mean, there were times.
Yeah, Yeah, exactly.
We were just playing good ball to playing good ball, too.
Yeah, even even even argue.
Even there was even times on against the Celtics. What does R.
J was on Carson? Everyone's Garden RG barely broke.
Like when you see that it's up to the coach to see it.
You're so caught up in the game.
It's up to the coast of time.
Like Yo, bro, you got.
If you have Carson Edwards on you, that's a mismatch.
You have to go post him up.
Sometimes you stand on on three point line, ready, ready for the past, off the five out.
I just don't I don't I don't think that's the That's the best way for us, man. It's not. It's not successful.
Um, I much rather have Randall in the paint, get doing the dirty work and then I mean, he has got So he was. He improved his shot.
I mean, he was knocking down shots in the off season with shot look good.
But you know, if it's not going down, try some other things.
And I think that's definitely something that he should do, except if is there to put him in those situations to succeed.
I said job as a coach, so we'll see what happens tonight man.
I mean, the Kings are one in five, but they have much more talented than that talent, very talented team across the board.
They don't have Marvin back of your thirties still out, but we should be appreciated in this game.
We should refer them in this game.
We just have to finish.
That has been our problem, but a lot of six days he played with the exception of the first game against the Celtics way haven't been able to finish, and that's that's the key.
It's about and again.
Like I said, keep reiterating it.
But it is really just about It's about Fizdale, man.
Um, no, no, No excuses for four for 1/5 day ought to share last year and you're seeing for Fox and why you're struggling.
Um, I mean, I just think I just think it's a little slump, you know, some some players.
Some players have some slobs early in the season, and once once they really getting the real true basketball shape. True.
Five on five shape.
You know a lot of these guys they play pickup, they do things in training camp is not really is extraneous.
I used to be back in the day.
That's a lot of light stuff.
So in the 1st 1st 6 games, I think I think I think I'll get it going.
Hopefully, not tonight.
The next game he gets it going, but, uh uh, yeah, man.
I mean, it's just just a little slump.
I think you play.
You play well in an effort to W of the season at a really good game, so we'll see what happens.
I mean, like I said, I like I like the match up with Frank All Fox I think he has. He has.
Frank has the size on and the length to describe some some things that that Fox, especially Fox, is a really good player going downhill.
Using the speed and Frank's length and athleticism on his end, he could be able to stop now little bit, a kind of kind of make something stuff, fast break, fast break points, transition points.
I really want to see how we play on defense tonight down the stretch down the stretch and I want to see how offensive sets down the stretch.
Look at the game against the Magic Alaska last seven and 1/2 minutes or so.
Stagnant, stagnant offense, one shot.
It's just It's just tough to watch because, like you say, if we fight, we fight to the end and I like the grit of our team is just is just is just some.
It's just some little little things, little things that that I feel like we could definitely work on throughout the season.
But you have to start early because you have to develop good habits early.
So once the season progresses, you remember those habits, your stake in system with those habits, and that's that's gonna help.
That's gonna help build the chemistry and the trust down the stretch, and especially in the second, as as the games continue for the rest of the season.
So that's why I'm so I'm so hard on the team right now because I see how good we can be, and I just think that's a little just a couple of things that need to work on.
And, um, I mean, it's just it's just tough.
It's just tough, just tough.
The watchman, just like I said offensively and then and then you don't you don't play a guy like True sparkplug off the bench. He could score.
You can knock down shots.
He's a walking bucket easily.
Dotson is a bucket to not go for.
Those guys aren't great defensively, but that's to give and take.
I mean, those are there guys like that in this league that that are good at one thing and not necessary so good in the other.
But you just used them in there.
You just have them play specific minutes and have them do what they do.
And so they could be able to help the team in their way and then and then and makes a mix and match.
And maybe but Frank in there and put your out and things like that.
And it makes mismatch the lineups dependent on what what water does with lineups, he puts out.
Look what? It's really not that great of, uh, both.
Both of these coaches aren't good when it comes to rotations and line up, so that's that's the real battle tonight.
Just love this game, man.
Same place we played eight guys against the Celtics like really bro like come off.
You have to do better than that.
Play eight guys and and again.
Got to two young guys. Healthy scratches.
It just doesn't.
It doesn't make sense to me.
It really doesn't make sense.
Resting number down.
Two guards already because of personal reasons.
So why not play those other guys? Is weird about it.
For like I said for Randall, you have a big night.
Should have a really big have a I'm saying that 20.
Oh, this man should be averaging 2023 11 23 and 12.
Like Like I've been saying this Lou and Lou, you know.
Yeah, you're 69 Honestly, if you're six, the 1st 68 and taller road, if you're not, I just I don't know. I wouldn't go that far.
You're a power forward in the center and you're not giving me 10 in today's 10 rebounds in today's MBA.
The way the way possessions are up and down basketball at the pace deductions.
This is all about effort.
That's just all about after a man you should be getting.
You should be getting 10 rebounds and night easily, easily, Usually got back in the day.
Guys like guys like Rodman.
Uh, never third should be able to We should be able to get down there on the boards resting
