DeMarre Carroll came off the bench on Wednesday but continued to struggle against the Cavs, going 0-of-6 from the field and scoring zero points.
Carroll is billed as a 3-and-D player capable of at least slowing LeBron James a little bit, but he was repeatedly torched by The King in this one. We said it last round, but Carroll has neither the foot speed nor the strength to stay in front of athletic wings like James or Giannis Antetokounmpo. Offensively Carrol was even worse than he was in Game 1, bricking all four of his attempts from deep and offering next to nothing as a playmaker. It isn’t hard to imagine him spending even more time on the bench in Game 3.
