1.0 blks - versatile defender, plays great help D
104 DRTG, 2.5 DBPM - he's been a big reason why the Lakers have gone from a 30th ranked defense to 8th, he has the 2nd highest DRTG among the starters.
He's currently 7th among all point guards in DRPM
that's a lot of positives on his side
Shooting and finishing around the rim is what he needs to work on..they might have to get him more of those lobs to boost his confidence at the rim, he's shot 40/31/67 in his last 5 games while averaging 10/6/7...he's showing more flashes than he did earlier on, Luke just needs to keep giving him consistent PT and not take him out after a slow start vs. the best team in the WC (Rockets).
