Sean Kilpatrick scored 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting (4-of-5 FTs) with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes off the bench in Friday’s loss.
Kilpatrick was rolling along until this week and he started to sputter as Kenny Atkinson started messing with the guard rotation. Randy Foye (two points, three assists, 16 minutes) got the start tonight with Russell Westbrook on the other side, and Yogi Ferrell (six points, four rebounds, 19 minutes) has been getting an extended look in a backup role. Isaiah Whitehead (four points, four assists, one steal) is also in the mix and Jeremy Lin (hamstring) isn’t back yet. Kilpatrick was surviving with Lin around in deeper leagues, so something in the middle between late- and deep-league value is in the works.
