David Lee saw just 13 minutes off the bench in Wednesday’s loss to the Pistons, scoring four points on 2-of-4 shooting with four rebounds, one steal and one block.
Lee did well to get the defensive numbers in such limited time and Andre Drummond required the Zaza Pachulia treatment. There is no reason to panic if you added Lee based on this game, and likewise we wouldn’t move the needle back in the other direction for Pachulia here. Pachulia sent for 10 and 13 with no other impact in the box score in his 35 minutes. Just remember that the Mavs will probably replicate this approach anytime they face larger centers.
