2nd concussion in a year for Horford.  Thatís very worrisome beyond this week.

wait so al plays NFL in his spare time? How is he getting concussed??
I mean we have replays of the play, he gets knocked on the head pretty hard and is clearly shaken up for a moment. Not sure if we have video of the concussion last year, but it probably exists.

NBA's policy on concussions, last I recall, is quite strict also.

Think it was Zeller who hit him last year in the workouts, so I think there's no video.

You donít think NBA teams film every practice session?

I bet it exists.  Doubt it ever becomes publicly available, because who would care enough.  But Iíd be surprised if it werenít recorded.

C'mon man, that's what I thought, no publicly available. Of course they film their workout sessions...

Next man up.

Morris probably starts next to Baynes in the frontcourt. That keeps some toughness with IQ.

Morris could easily slide over to center this game. Lopez drifts to the perimeter more and more, and he is a terrible rebounder. Morris has the athleticism to check him outside and help on pick-and-rolls, without giving up too much inside. Bogut and Randle aren't scaring me too much either.

Theis could have a big game as well. Hopefully he is ready to shoot the 3 tonight to stretch the floor for our guards.

I'd give Yabu two burns too, one in the early 2nd quarter and one in the late 3rd quarter. Give him 3 minutes. If he plays well, leave him in for a couple extra minutes. If he misses some defensive rotations, pull him.

Still, everyone needs to step up in their defensive rotations and rebounding.

I donít really see Morris playing any center.  I think Theis will get the backup center minutes, and if need be maybe Yabu because of his bulk. Could be center by committee, but I only see Morris at PF.

I do.  I think Stevens might throw out a Smart-Brown-Tatum-Ojeleye-Morris lineup for a few minutes to see how it looks.  Heís always willing to try weird things, and necessity is the mother of invention.

Key is defending Lopez.  He is their best player.   Frankly I see Yabu and Semi as best equipped to guard his 3 point shot, while Baynes best option for defending him inside.  Lakers' other shooters are a bit weak from 3, so won't be surprised to see double teams on Lopez in the post.

Hopefully Lonzo Ball will be neutralized. The other problem is stopping Kyle Kuzma, Julius Randle, and Brandon Ingram. If they go off it'll be a tough night.
