Hope Kawhi will not be out long though because we need him back vs strong teams! But of course since it is still early in the season we will be ok.
Pop mentioned in the interview before the game last night Kawhi was injured a while back but he could manage to play with the bother of that injury now it starts to flair up and hurt him. I wish they found out earlier but I guess he never told them until it really starts to kill him!!!:shock
Nando got some playing time last night and this is actually a good thing to extend the bench while Kawhi can get well. The rotation can improve with more people from the bench to have a third option available is a Great Development Luxury because even the second unit can get motivated more to play better before Pop pulls the 3rd one.
Kawhi out now could be indeed a blessing in disguise.
“I asked them if it wasn't too much trouble, if I wasn't being too pushy, if they could execute what we were trying to do. And if it didn't make them too angry, if they also wanted to play some defense on the other end, that would be great.”
