Josh Hart came off the bench against the Blazers on Thursday, scoring 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting with three triples, four boards, an assist, three steals and two blocks.
Hart was easily the best Lakers player off the bench and arguably the second best Lakers player after LeBron James. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was putrid in his start, scoring five points on 1-of-3 shooting with a triple. Hart is the better player between the two and deserves more minutes than both Lance Stephenson (four points, 2-of-6 shooting) and KCP.
