I only caught the 4rth quarter, so I mostly saw the dream lineup. Probably not worth even having any response beyond that a lineup with 3-4 guys who are not NBA players was not successful. But still.
Watching that lineup made me mad at Tyler Johnson, who should have been waaaay ahead of all those guys on the depth chart.
Ty Jerome might have touched the ball 2x in the fourth quarter. He's the best ball handler, the best passer, and probably has the highest bball IQ on the court. He didn't use those qualities. It looked to me like he doesn't think he's an NBA player, either.
Cam Johnson was the best player on the court, and we should have run most plays through him. Instead, it seemed like 75% of the plays were Payne or Carter in a pick and roll with Diallo. Most of those ended in turnovers.
Payne definitely has the athleticism and aggressiveness to be an impact player. He hasn't had great results, but it's hard to judge with the guys he shares the court with. I'll be looking at how well he does as he learns the system better. I'd be tempted to start him in the next scrimmage.
Kaminsky is as ready to play as ever. He'll be back to his old self when the action starts, hitting corner 3's and hooks from 5 feet away, and getting knocked around in the lane by pretty much anyone else.
