Hall of Famer
I thought WCS's defense was pretty good in the Lakers game. Bjelica's was not. He didn't help the helper at all, and seemed lost in some situations. One play in particular that stood out was in the first quarter when Chandler came into the key from 18 feet out to slam the ball uncontested. Bjelica was guarding "nobody" and didn't recognize Chandler running toward the basket. Maybe that's why Joerger doesn't use him at center? Overall, the Kings D just wasn't as good as the Lakers' defense. The Kings were contested much more in their shots than the Lakers. Like I said in a previous post, Hield was contested by two Lakers in his shots. Now that's what I call a contested shot! The only King that really had space on his shots was Fox (also Bjelica for a brief time) and that's because he's so darned quick that he creates his own space.
