Brandon Ingram brought the defense on Thursday, swatting three shots with a steal to go with 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting while adding a rebound and three assists.
Ingram's on/off splits with LeBron James have been widely publicized by now and it looks like Coach Walton is taking note of that as he staggered them more tonight. Although he didn't close out the game, he looked more comfortable playing without James and with more freedom on offense. Ingram still has a ways to go until he's a mid-round fantasy asset but if the stagggered minutes continue it's a good sign.
