Willie Cauley-Stein blocked four shots in Wednesday’s loss to the Bucks, adding 10 points, seven boards and two assists.
The Kings were creative in deploying him tonight, especially on the defensive end. Cauley-Stein was repeatedly switched onto Giannis Antetokounmpo in pick-and-roll situations, and while the Greek Freak was able get by him with relative ease Cauley-Stein did feel like the best option at the Kings’ disposal. He’s been a bit underwhelming in the wake of the DeMarcus Cousins trade, but nights like tonight show hints of his defensive potential.
