Lonzo Ball started on Monday against the Wolves and scored four points on 2-of-6 shooting with one rebound and one assist.
Ball was just flat out bad tonight and the box score proved it. Coach Walton opted to finish the game with Rajon Rondo (13 points on 6-of-9 shooting with a 3-pointer, six rebounds and eight assists) but Rondo was gun shy down the stretch with the game on the line. We still think Ball is the superior option here at point guard, but tonight he just didn't have it going. Josh Hart was also relegated to the bench and played 24 minutes, scoring five points on 2-of-8 shooting with six boards, a steal and a triple. It's going to be tough to hold onto Hart in standard leagues if he's going to come off the bench.
